    Truth^^

    Also, and this is dependent on your location, sunblock, suncream. I have seen WAY to many people have their festival ruined by an afternoon drinking in the sun. Standing around in the sun watching bands one minute, face down in a tent crying the next.

    Trust me, I am a festival expert.

    This is usually the realisation that they have spent a small fortune on a ticket from a tout only to find out the band they so wanted to see are in actual fact rubbish live!

    Yeah, its not a race... enjoy the day cus the night-time is really when things come to life...!!! and get Craaaaaaaazzzyyyyy.

    God I love festivals. Playing few in uk this summer, namely Kendal Calling as I am their resident/in-house DJ.

    Not going to Glastonbury this year for the first time in a run of 14 (20 in total) which is quite upsetting as it is mine and my fiances favourite place ON EARTH in fact I proposed at Glastonbury 2011, but we get married this saturday so we had to forgo Glasto this year.
    Our wedding is Glastonbury themed

    Leeds Fest can seem pretty like it at some points . Although I had a knife pulled out on me at Bestival watching Stevie Wonder of all people.

    But in all seriousness you will love it. Take essentials, and I would advise taking a cheap old phone, Nokia 3210 like, as so many people I know lose or break iPhones at festivals.

    Enjoy the day and soak up the atmosphere, but don't get too drunk. Far too many times I have peaked too early and missed an act I wanted to see in the evening.

    Also check out the comedy tent if they have one, nothing better in the morning than some stand up
