I’ve searched long and hard through my photos to find a morning related shot and as it’s less than two weeks till we go to the Glastonbury Festival, I thought this one would be rather appropriate.
It’s a photo of my son Thomas just surfacing on the morning of 26th June 2008, looking somewhat the worse for wear after the previous night’s festivities!
The 2008 festival was quite controversial as this was the year that Jay Z was one of the headliners. There was alot of fuss about whether a rap artist should be performing, with Noel Gallagher of Oasis particularly vehement in voicing his opinion. But Jay Z pulled off a master stroke by opening his set with Oasis’s Wonderwall.
The sheer variety of the festival and humour of the festival goers is summed up by this placard, referring both to Jay Z and Shaking Stevens, who was also performing at the festival.
