*V Festival, Hylands Park, Chelmsford, Essex
The other weekend I was invited to attend V Festival with Pringles to celebrate the launch of their new party speakers. I haven’t been to V since I was about 18 so I thought I’d give it a whirl and re-live my teenage years, the line up was looking pretty good and it was set to be a sunny weekend so I gladly accepted the invite and set off to Hylands Park for the weekend.
My best friend (and wing woman) came along for some moral support and to enjoy the festival with me – it was her first experience of V and she loved it. We decided only to camp for one night as we live so close and I’m not a fan of camping so we thought why camp if we have a nice cosy bed and hot shower waiting for us at home.
On the Saturday morning we arrived at the festival and finally set up camp, we met up with the guys from Pringles and a couple of bloggers and journalists who were with us for a few pre-drinks then set off to the arena. We headed straight for the Pringles stand where they had all sorts of fun and games going on as well as some music and a mini dance floor, the stand was attracting so much attention and everyone was getting involved!
Saturday we decided to watch; Justin Timberlake (I felt like I was 16 all over again and it was great!), Ed Sheeran – who was incredible and by far the best live act of the weekend, Tom Odell and Example. On the Sunday we decided to watch Sam Smith (he was soooo good!), Katy B, Axwell & Ingrosso, Rudimental, Jason Derulo and Tinie Tempah. The acts I was really impressed with was Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith who I thought were both amazing live, apart from that I could take or leave the line up as there isn’t anyone I’d rush to see again.
We spent the rest of our time catching up with friends, mooching around the stalls, taking lots of snaps and eating and drinking lots! Although I had an amazing weekend with Pringles at V, I do feel like I’ve outgrown the festival as it just reminds me of my youth so much – I feel like it will be Reading festival for me from now on as it’s much more suited to my music tastes.
Thank you to Pringles for a great weekend!
