'It was an amazing muddy adventure with 50,00 new friends.'
Hello Virtual Festivals readers! Katie P here – frontlady and all-round blog addict for the Trident Perpetual Festival Experience.
I have been at a different festival every week now for 15 weeks – meaning I am rather satisfyingly exactly halfway through my 30 party adventure around the world. From Mallorca to Turkey, Croatia to Bulgaria, it's been an amazing journey so far!
Musical highlights have taken the form of everything from Fool's Gold to The Prodigy, Metallica to The Phenomenal Handclap Band, with plenty of headbanging, raving and bum shaking the whole way through.
Last weekend I was at Bestival – taking in four days of manic fancy-dressed fun on the Isle Of Wight, with amazing performances from Rolf Harris, The Flaming Lips, The King Blues and Snap rating as my favourite moments of the weekend. It was an amazing muddy adventure with 50,00 new friends.
Next weekend, I'm off oop north to Loopallu at Ullapool (see what they did there?) in Scotland for some fun with The Magic Numbers, Idlewild and more. After that (potentially) chilly fun, I’ll be jetsetting it over to Ibiza for the notorious annual closing parties.. and then Cape Town… and then Malawi.. and onwards! If you fancy winning tickets to join me somewhere in the world, simply pick up a pack of Trident Gum and enter the code on the back into the form on www.tridentgum.co.uk.
