This is a question Festivals II

It's that time of year again

I was at a free festival outside Worthing in the early 90s, expounds Richard mcbeef off the internet. A bloke went mental on the dancefloor and started hitting people. He was restrained, calmed down, but then did it again, a good three times more. Eventually he was pursued around the arena by an ever-growing number of people, like in Benny Hill. He was chased into a massive nettle patch and ended up tied to a chair.

Tell us your festival experiences.

Free Drugs 2
There was a small free festival near the small village of Longstock, near Stockbridge in Hampshire, at which a dude dressed like a fucking wizard was wandering about with a water butt in which he'd put 250 trips, to which one and all were welcome. I was on a 3 day mushroom bender so stayed well away but my chum Adam had about three pints and was most impressed.

Sure, it's no 'organic hog roast with quinoa and edamame salad' near the Barclaycard Stage but we made do with what we had.

One year at Reading there was a woman flogging hash brownies for £3.50
I took one and ran off without paying.

She was probably too stoned to care.

Yes, yes, that's all very well...
...but how on earth did you chill out, relax and be yourself (within carefully defined brand parameters) and still get your phone charged in time for 5 Seconds of Summer?

I'd rather have the hog roast, thanks.
Notice that no one is ever giving that away for free.

Festivals were way more authentic when it was rich middle class kids pretending they were edgy and anarchic
rather than rich middle class kids just being rich middle class kids.

The Brew Crew/convoy lot were by and large genuine dregs, there were some scary people*
The Trustafari contingent was masssive though for sure. I suppose I'd fit under that tragic banner myself were it not for the fact that the family money was all long gone by then.

* I remember seeing one chap (name of Andre) playing a game of chicken with some other halfwit, stood 20 feet from each other throwing axes at each other
