This year seems to be my summer of 1 day London festivals. It started in the beginning of June with Field Day. Next up for me was British Summer Time Festival which takes place over the course of 10 days at Hyde Park. I’d been 2 times last year to see McBusted (full post here) and Arcade Fire. This year they had a special offer on selected dates where you could get tickets for 2 of the days at a special price. First up was The Strokes!
Next, it was off to the Barclaycard stage to see Kitty, Daisy and Lewis. I’m a bit of a fan, hence the tee, so was not put off when it started to pour down with rain. I love watching this talented family. I wish they’d adopt me, though I have no musical talent… We managed to catch bits of Metric and The Horrors’ sets before claiming our place in the ever growing crowd for Blur. There was a much better atmosphere for Blur in the middle of the crowd compared to The Strokes just 2 days before. They played a blinding set which included all their most loved songs that had everyone singing along to, plus some fresh tunes from the new album.
BST is a firm festival favourite of mine as there is so much more than music to be discovered. Plus, I can hop back on the tube home for a shower!
Did anyone else managed to catch one of the days at BST? Who did you see?
