Sing For The Moment

It's that time of the year again!
Well, technically this doesn't start until July, but for me it begun today when I purchased my V Festival ticket!
To say it was a stressful procedure would be a hideous understatement - it was a sickening time in my life that I don't wish to repeat (but inevitably will next year).

Tickets were due to go on sale at 9am this morning, myself and Alix woke up at 8.30 to begin the frantic struggle for weekend camping passes.
We had EVERY site open, each one displaying the infuriating 'Server Busy, This page will refresh automatically' message.

An hour passed, and one by one each site flashed onto the next screen, displaying the message 'Tickets Unavailable'.
At 10.15 we had all but given up. Alix was busy doing a phone interview for a feature she's writing, I was staring at my screen, preparing to weep.

Then, See Tickets gave me a lifeline.
'Click here for travel packages and tickets' it said, beckoning me in to a world of hope.
TICKETS AVAILABLE! Just get a coach, and you shall go to the ball!

In the end we ended up paying for a coach package to take us from London to Hylands Park.
Quite a lottt more than the basic weekend ticket price, and also quite annoying as I actually live a twenty minute train journey from Chelmsford, so will in fact be making one of the most pointless journeys of my life into London and back to Essex.

Definitely worth it though.
I've been to V Fest before and I had an awesome time. The weather was glorious, and there's such a variety of acts you get to here the best of all your favourite kinds of music.
I cannot wait to adorn my wrist with a V Festival 2011, Yellow Camp, band to add to the many others that lay slowly disintegrating there.

(Excuse the greasyness, we were definitely front of the barrier for Lady Gaga at this point)

Is anyone else going to V? Or any other festivals?? Exciiiited???
