Leeds Festival

 Yes I know I have been very late with this post, but here are some of the photos from Leeds.
Sadly my camera decided to break the first few hours of the festival (I blame the crazy spinny ride, my camera couldn't handle it's power). Yet luckily Alicia brought her camera as well so here are some random photos of the weekend...when I mean random, I mean the ones where I don't look completely like a drunk drowned rat.

We sadly didn't get so many great photos of any of the shows as the camera couldn't handle all the flashing lights/we were unable to steady our hands from being pushed around by the crowd. The one above is of The Strokes. As amazing as they were, it was probably the most violent of all the shows that weekend. We got to the main stage very early to get near the front row but sadly being right near the front meant we were pushed around, falling to the ground and had our toes tread so much...despite my attempts to control the crowd by randomly shouting 'WOULD EVERYONE JUST STOP PUSHING!' like I was the teacher or something (cringe. God I'm annoying)

Got to see so many artists;
The Strokes, The Kills, 30 Seconds to Mars, Rubberbandits, Peter Doherty, Sub Focus, Nero, Simian Mobile Disco, Bedouin Soundclash, Bombay Bicycle Club, Patrick Wolf, The Streets, Pulp, The Naked and Famous, The National...and probably more I have forgotten.

Some key things to summarise the weekend:
Mud mud mud/Fake tattoos/Intense rain/Overpowering heat/greasy hair/chips with ketchup/corny silent disco/tent fires/walking bare foot in the mud/speed peeing/anti-bacterial gel and one of the last times we could say to each other 'down it Fresher'...

Without sounding so cheesy and was one of the best weekends of my life with great memories, so thank you so so much Alicia for everything over the festival...and for putting up with my moaning about the weather. Haha!
