LIFESTYLE: Festival Injuries
Pryers have produced a Festival Safety infographic, which has been picked up by online Mag Six out of Ten. Laura has some very interesting thoughts on the whole Festival thing and so I thought I'd pass my opinion too - I'm sure if you follow me you will already know a little bit about how I feel about festivals.
I love music, thats for sure but I am a little bit crazy. When I was 15, my dad us booked tickets for YMAS at The Roundhouse. They were my favourite band at the time and one I still love today but I remember, the night before going to my first gig, I was laying in bed thinking, I might die tomorrow, how am I going to be able to keep up with all these big men in a mosh pit.
Anyway, I didnt. and apart from a full can of beer hitting me on the head and pouring all down me, I actually had a really good time and I have been back to The Roundhouse many times since - to see YMAS again, and loads more like All Time Low, The Blackout, AVA ect.
So gigs I can do! But as I got older, festivals became a thing and instead of one nights possibility of something strange happening, there would be 3 whole days so I have never been to a proper festival. It's really just not my thing and I feel like I wouldnt be able to keep up with partying all day and sleeping in a cold wet tent with the possibility of someone falling on top of it or setting it on fire during the night. I need a good sleep, and I need nice, healthy food to keep me going all day so I'm thinking if I cant hack it now, there is no way I'm going to be able to do it when I get older.
