Well hello there, it certainly has been a while!
With it being over a year since my last blog, I thought I’d kick off with a post about a recent adventure… Glastonbury 2016!
After visiting Glastonbury I can honestly say everyone needs to go at least once in their lifetime. It’s like no over place I’ve ever been.
There’s so much to do; you can explore the healing fields and get a massage from a hippie or try gong therapy, there’s amazing artwork dotted about the camps with deep political messages, there’s Shangri-La – a place you really need to experience to understand, so many different types of food you’re stuck for choice, and of course there’s the music!
Adele and Coldplay with Barry Gibbs stand out for me as highlights of the weekend. Both performances were so different but equally brilliant.
Adele never missed a note in every song she sang, her deep, dusky tones sounded beautiful echoing through the fields and were a stark contrast to her rich and cheeky – slightly cockney accent. Her personality really shone and as someone who never used to be an Adele fan, I am absolutely converted to a die hard, slightly stalker-ish fan!
Coldplay were equally amazing and Chris Martin’s talent is unquestionable. They captured the audience with their lively, energetic and meaningful performances of many of their hits including Hymn for the Weekend, Paradise, Fix You and Waterfall. My favourite part of the set was undoubtedly when they were joined on stage by Bee Gee legend Barry Gibbs who sang Stayin’ Alive.
My other favourites were Disclosure and Years & Years as well as The Lumineers and Stormzy.
This year was one of the muddiest years for a while, and I can honestly say I didn’t mind and I hate mud! The atmosphere was just so light and happy that there’s no reason to worry – no mud can spoil Glastonbury!
Registrations have opened for 2017, hopefully I’ll see you there!
