Monday, August 26, 2013I finally got the photos off my phone (it was not cooperating)! So we get a short walk down memory lane - back to July 2013.
It turned out to be a 60,000 people kind of festival! It was in the Olympic park in London and it was quite the thing. It was perfect weather (warm and sunny in London, what?). We saw Ben Howard and Vampire Weekend, and then Mumford and Sons got everyone going at night. It was pretty awesome. We were quite lucky actually because the bass player for Mumford and Sons had brain surgery recently to remove a blood clot and they had to cancel their US tour as a result. This concert was only their second after his operation! The only downside to our festival was that Michelle's partner, who was supposed to come, couldn't make it. We did our best to enjoy it on his behalf.
(Trying to leave the place with 60,000 other people was crazy - fortunately my sister lives kind of within walking distance so we skipped the wait for transit and walked home.)
