Summer’s just around the corner and that means one thing – festival season is almost upon us! Festivals are a highlight of summer for many reasons. Where else can you see your favourite artists perform, dance like no one’s watching, consume questionable amounts of alcohol in the middle of the day, bump into old friends, enjoy longer nights and create fab memories with your squad!
I’m off to Garage Nation Festival, for the third time in a row this year. I’ve had a great time on both occasions I’ve been, skanking to UK Garage and Old Skool Jungle’s finest, and being transported back to my younger years. There’s nothing quite like hearing your favourite tunes, surrounded by thousands of people who all appreciate when that beat drops! The euphoria I felt at the very first festival held in 2015 on Streatham Common was utterly amazing. My feet haven’t hurt from dancing so hard in years! I pretty much danced non-stop for approximately nine hours, so I’d say that was a pretty successful festival.
