Glastonbury was beautiful!

Back from an amazing weekend at Glastonbury! I had the best time and the sun actually showed up and hung around for a very respectable amount of time. I always book into a hotel (in theory camping kinda appeals to me but in practice I pretty much despise it) and so a drizzly and muddy Friday didn't worry me too much, but then Saturday was GORGEOUS! I loved it. I saw some fantastic bands. Goldfrapp blew me away. Alison Goldfrapp looked great as usual and her voice is amazing live. They came on at about 6.30pm and it was that lovely time of the day when the sun is begining to sink a little and everything is golden and hazy and gorgeous.


Foals played in the rain on Friday but were so tight and put everything into their set.

There were so many other great bands. Vampire weekend were so good, definitely one of my highlights, as was Seasick Steve, Amy Winehouse, Neon Neon, and The Raconteurs. Plus, my brother in law's girlfriend had a vintage clothes stall by the Pyramid Stage and so I even managed to do a little shopping. And when I say shopping I mean she very, very kindly gave me a couple of things I had my eye on for free! How could it get any better?

Ok, I am soooooo jealous, you saw all my favourites! Sounds like you have the right idea getting a B&B too, Maybe I'll do that next year!

I'm envious, I hope to get a chance to go to Glastonbury some day. Chris Martins charity endeavours just fuel my love for Coldplay more. I suppose Gwen's bound to have more sewing skills!

I can't even imagine how epic Goldfrapp must be live. That woman is beyond words. Such an amazing artist and DAMN what great style.
