Yesterday I attended the final day of the Wireless Festival in London’s Hyde Park with my Fiancée Debbie, her Brother Paul and his Wife Nicole. The weather was terrible and there was no shortage of mud; but the experience of being in the VIP enclosure more than made up for this.

Upon arrival we found a seat in our area of the VIP enclosure and settled down with a drink and some canapés to watch the Wimbledon men’s singles final. A few drinks later, Paul and I decided that it was time to do some celebrity spotting:

In amongst these photos we headed out to the Main Stage at 18:50 to watch Jessie J, before heading across to the PepsiMax Stage at 19:30 to witness Calvin Harris. We actually witnessed Calvin Harris and a fight between two girls – one using a crutch as a weapon!

Finally, we made our way back to the Main Stage for 20:10 to watch a brilliant performance by Rhianna.

Having never attended a festival before this was everything I imagined it would be – lots of happy people, good music and loads of mud!

However, it was also a number of things that I hadn’t expected it to be: access to the VIP enclosure, a free bar and celebrities. Next time …

Muddy Festival Tip: Don't Wear Toms!

I will probably wear footwear better suited to the weather conditions :-)
