Wireless Festival 09

Wireless Fest '09
It had been a few years since I had been to the Wireless Festival. Having been one of the lucky ones to have been to the very first back in 2005 (wow!) I had the pleasure of seeing Basement Jaxx live. In one word - amazing!
So fast forward 2009 - what had changed? Well the line up for one. In 2005 it was extremely, well, festivally! They had loads of Indie bands and less Pop, Dance, RnB, HipHop or infact anything. I am not an Indie head at all so you could imagine my delight when Basement Jaxx were headlining act (well in my eyes anyway!) 2009 had two days of amazing artists. Saturday was The Streets, Dizzee Rascal, Paul Oakenfold, Afrika Bambaataa and many more. But Sunday was the day I paid my hard-earned moo-laa for. Noisettes, Alesha Dixon, Calvin Harris, Daniel Merriweather, Young Jezzy, Chipmunk, Ironik, Tincy Stryder, N-Dubz, Kid Cudi, Mr Hudson & The Library, Diversity and oh some guy called Kanye West. :-) Each tent had different areas of music, the Grime/UK rappers in one, Dance/Alternative in the other and then the main stage for artists like Mr. West and Young Jezzy. The food was good chips, burgers, chinese, donuts the usual. But my oh my was it pricey! £2.50 for a bottle and £6.00 for two chips and a burger? Let it be known that if you're paying for entry to a festival bring a couple of tenners because it certainly wasn't cheap. Oh and big shout out to my girl who was serving the thai food, she charged me and my other half £2 instead of £12 for two thai noodles...it pays to listen up in Maths people!!! So pleased with the music, the food, and the atmosphere was lovely, chilled, relaxed and the weather was splendid if I do say so myself. So apart from having the piss bottles thrown everywhere (please see video below!) The festival was well worth the money. :-) Now on to the fashion let me know what outfits rocked and oh well should be placed under a rock!!!
Toodles! x
