Well currently I am taking shelter in the press tent. After a rather windy night under the stars I awoke fresh faced to some lovely rain that’s clearly not gonna give up.
In the next few hours the arena opens up for all the real fun and games to begin. After chatting with a few punters here and there it seems that the world is awating The Prodigy; with one person suggesting that things may well get ‘well sweaty’.
We will also be chatting to Fightstar later on (aka Charlie from Busted lol). Also think we got some other bits and bobs lined up so keep watching (am going to be talking with Emily fron Metric). Of course you will only get to hear the full interviews in our review programme on BCB next week.
It’s all rather nice. Should have some real content later. Rest of the team is here now so will give you the Weekend Vibe team’s updates as well.
So, it’s what 1.15 in the morning as I write this on the Thursday night at the Leeds festival. We had a spot of rain, nothing too harsh. As I am writing this from a mobile device from my tent I will keep the reviews breif – Blood Red Shoes – good. Wild Beasts – very good (that’s almost as good as you would expect from NME, my use of the word good was great I think)
I spent some time amongst the action in the camp sites and found some rather worrying scenes; more on that soon. The rest of the team are here tomorrow and we are doing some interviews so watch this space for some audio boo hopefuly. However, for now a choice quote from a group of lads.
“We all need to get thos hats like Dell Boy”
Goodnight and more fun tommrrow.
To kick of the music blog we will be bringing you undoubtedly the most comprehensive Leeds festival coverage to be found anywhere. We have a temporary twitter stream running down the right of this blog. With any luck you will get a chance to see our audio boos uploaded right from the field. As well as fantastic videos of weekend vibe “cooking”, you heard it here first people.
Look back at the blog as well for daily photos and with any luck a morning and night blog entry (although i am bound to forget to check in once over the weekend). Its an absolute privilege to be going to the festival with the rest of the team this year. That’s all for now ta tar.
