One of the things I like about going to the Isle of Wight Festival is not just being able to enjoy the music, but it’s about enjoying the whole atmosphere. Everyone, well, about 99.99% of them, are there to have a good time and almost everyone you bump into during the festival is smiling, happy and friendly. Obviously, with drink available 24/7 over the three days there are a lot of ‘happy’ people around but it’s rare that you see any bad behavior because of it.
So while your there you sort of leave the ‘real’ world behind.
Personally I find that I don’t really think about anything at all while I’m there apart from “Who’s on next?” “Have we got time to grab a coffee?” and “What shall I have for dinner/tea/supper?”
On Saturday afternoon the sun was shining, I was laying on my back having just eaten a scrumptious falafel wrap and became aware that I was just looking at the clouds and I began seeing all kinds of funny shapes in them. Bunnies. Snails. Dogs. All sorts of ‘animals’ just floated by to a gentle background of music and crowd noise. It was delightful.
