23 Sleeps till Glastonbury!

Now that my exams are over, I can focus my attention on more pleasurable activities, such as the forthcoming Glastonbury Festival. It’s less than three weeks until the gates open on 22nd June 2011 and the tickets were delivered last week, so the antipation levels are mounting!

On my other blog, myrockdatediary , I’ll be recalling some of my experiences at the festival and adding youtube clips of some of the many artists I’ve seen there over the past four years.

But to tie in with the this week’s photo challenge theme of water, here’s a photo taken at the 2007 festival the morning after a torrential downpour flooded the Pyramid Stage field. As you can imagine it was a bit of a mudbath that year

And just to give you an idea of how big the festival is here’s this year’s line up:

A – Z Blogging Challenge – Day 13

Well we’re now on April 24th and it’s been a few days since my last post, partly due to work commitments until yesterday, then yesterday I was down in London, with Thomas for a gig. We went to see one of my favourite groups, The Saw Doctors

Whilst talking about gigs, this has given me the idea for the 13th letter of the challenge.

M is for Myrockdatediary
This is a blog I started earlier this year to document all my many gig and festival experiences. I’ve been going to gigs since I was a teenager and still enjoy them as much now as I did then.

As I approach my half century, I’m often asked “Aren’t you getting a bit old for all this?” or words to that effect. My answer is always the same, I’ll stop when I no longer get those moments that send shivers down your spine, be it from the music, the crowd, the stage show or the atmosphere at the gig.

When that happens, I’ll stop, but it hasn’t happened yet!

So, myrockdatediary is my way of keeping track of all those great memories, take a look at the site and if you’ve got any special memories of gigs you’ve been to, I’ll be more than happy to have you post on the site as a guest.

At the moment, I’m also doing a 30 day song challenge on the site, which is proving to be quite interesting as well!

Needless to say, I’m behind schedule on that as well!
