Everyone has songs that remind them of moments in life. I’ve got tunes that remind me of my days at college with my girls from home, who i miss so much. When you hear those tunes they jog your memory of sad times, fun times, hilarious times. Whatever it is, music is amazing when it comes to memories…
You may be wondering why I have failed to mention any of the night life in the campsite area at Bluesfest. I personally think you can’t really attend a festival and experience the full festival atmosphere without doing the whole campsite living for the entire event.
I didn’t have that many expectations for Day 4 to be honest. A few acts were ticked off the list to check out, but nothing got me overly excited as other days. However… it turned out to be one of the best days! I love it when that happens!
Day three began as normal, the van was parked nicely in amongst hundreds of other cars and vans, masses of festival goers armed with their fold away chairs and plenty of munch to keep them going throughout the day, were making their way through the gates having their bands checked by security, and of course the sniffer dogs were out on force again this morning.
Day 2 began not too well… mainly due to the lack of sleep I was getting. No sleep plus myself turns into a screaming moody mess!! Not a pretty sight for anyone to view I can tell you… but Bluesfest was still to be attended, so once a parking space was found for the van, we headed straight in to catch ALO on stage again.
Day one was your average get-your-bearings-right kind of day. We had a number of acts lined up to check out but the show didn’t kick off till 4pm, so we had a good mingle around the festival arena to see what was what.
I can’t say I was really that excited to attend the Blues Festival in Byron.
That’s probably not the best way to begin a blog on a music festival… especially a music festival that’s considered the most popular in the largest country in the world… and more so, the fact that it has been running for 21 solid years!
