Reading Festival 2014! And a new YouTube video :)

A couple of weeks I went to Reading Festival with some of my best friends and it was so fun. I knew from the beginning that I was going to be recording the majority of it because I was seeing some of my favourite bands and spending it with people I might not see for a long while! You can scroll straight to the end if you'd like to see the YouTube video I made with the footage :)


 There was loads of people there I knew and I camped with loads of my friends from uni but we all ended up splitting up when it came to deciding which bands we wanted to see! Most of my time was spent with my best friend Courtney, my cousin Joe and my friend Alex from uni as we all wanted to see the same bands. Me and Courtney shared her GoPro the whole time, and the boys enjoyed borrowing it to run through the audience and crowd surfing whilst recording themselves which ended up with some funny footage!


 My favourite bands there were Die Antwoord, Blink 182, A Day to Remember, issues and letlive. I also really enjoyed Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana, Queens of the Stone Age, Paramore (surprisingly really good even though I hadn't listened to them in about 6 years), Papa Roach, Hactivist, Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood, Lonely The Brave... and the list could go on! There was loads more bands I hadn't heard of before which I ended up falling in love with!

It was such a fun weekend and such a nice break away from full time work, I can't wait to get back to my next festival! I'm fingers crossed that I can go to Download and Glastonbury or Bestival next year as they seem really fun! :)


 We also enjoyed recording ourselves whilst on the rides, and the footage from that was pretty hilarious (especially all the screaming!) I'm lucky that I can borrow my best friends and my boyfriend's GoPro cameras when I like, but I definitely need to invest in one for myself. If you don't know what they are, they're little cameras which you can get waterproof casing for, and you can attach them to your head, chest, or arm and not worry about them falling off! They give a funny fish-eye lens effect which I love and they're not too expensive so they're perfect for day-to-day videoing which I hope to do some more of, for both my blog and so that I have somewhere to look back on all my funny old memories!

  11. Reading Festival sounds amazing and I would love to see The Arctic Monkeys live! I didn't go to festival this year but I really want to go to one next year! I love the look of GoPro cameras too, they seem especially good if you're really active or going somewhere where a normal camera may get damaged. Your video will be lovely for you to look back on and relive all your memories of the festival too! Alice xx
