Where I stayed
Decided to do a trip to the car to take non essential stuff back as it was an hour round trip and would be easier than trying to do everything tomorrow. That meant we needed to eat everything possible so as not to have to carry it! Breakfast therefore was an interesting affair with baked beans, breakfast in a can (random pieces of meat plus mini scotch eggs, mushrooms, bacon), pineapple rings, cheese, crisps and chocolate – delicious! Thankfully I hate baked beans so passed on the cooked breakfast sticking to my cereal instead!
Packed up a whole trolley load then Jo, Emma and Nick headed out to dump it off. Once they got back we headed out trying to be a bit more proactive than yesterday and get there before 5pm
They were followed by Spandau Ballet who still have it and then the Editors. Next was the highlight of the weekend Pink and Sir Paul McCartney. We had been at the front few rows for much of the weekend but they were so popular that if you lost your position it was hard to make it back down there again and unfortunately after calls of nature and re-supplying the beer we didn’t get as close as we wanted to see them but we were still close enough!
Pink started off by dropping out of a circus box suspended from a crane then later on crowd surfed in a zorb and finished by flying over the crowd in a harness off wires. She was awesome!!! Soooooo entertaining and making cracks at people who lip sync their sessions when things stuffed up and she had to start again
Paul McCartney followed and he was on for 1.5 possibly almost 2 hours and had everyone involved. Of course he did a few Beatles classics – Hey Jude, Yesterday – but also did some of his own stuff. Very, very good and definitely worth seeing. Finished off with explosions, ticker tape and fireworks at about 11.30pm and we all headed back to the tents at a snails pace- 45,000 people all trying to get somewhere is a very slow process! It had started to rain a bit in the last session but otherwise the rain held out until we were walking back the tents and then opened up, raining on and off for much of the night – great timing!!
