I’ve heard people saying last weekend’s Bestival was the best ever.
But I’m glad I turned down a ticket.
Why would you stand in a field in the cold and rain to watch Sir Elton John or Snoop Dogg on a big screen with them specks in the distance when you can watch it in the comfort of your own home in HD?
Don’t think it’s any better in VIP or backstage either, as you’re very much detached from the event and the view and sound quality is generally poor.
If you do go to a festival, the best place to be is in the ‘mosh pit’ right in front of the stage.
Great views and great sound. Just don’t expect to move for eight hours!
