It was my first real experience of a festival, and whilst I was quite anxious in the week coming up to it, I actually really enjoyed myself! The drinks were flowing by 11.30am which in hindsight was probably not the best idea ever, but it definitely meant that the day was stress free - even despite me losing our tickets within 2 minutes of arriving which is so unlike me. We headed in, and met up with Mary, my friend from uni!
Throughout the day we saw so many amazing acts - Zara Larsson, Bastille and Sia were just a few of the highlights! I loved that there were lots of different stages, as it made the whole event seem much less busy...always ideal. Sia was especially good, and I loved the fact that she sang "Diamonds" by Rihanna too, as she apparently wrote it!
Justin Bieber was of course excellent, but I was disappointed by the noise levels. For the quieter songs it was hard to hear what he was singing, and I have absolutely no clue what he said between songs either - it was a real shame as many people were excited to hear him sing. Which is definitely debatable too, his voice did seem very "polished" for it being live.But it's hard to complain when you are hearing all the hits - from "Baby" to "Cold Water" - Belieber since day one!
Have you ever been to V festival?
