I went, I saw, I conquered…

So in my last post I said that I was heading to the Radio 1 Hackney weekend alone and was a tad nervous…

I had an absolute BALL!  So much fun, I really enjoyed it.

I spent the most time in the dance tent, seeing as it has probably been 3 or more years since my feet have danced like that it all came back to me.

My highlight was Eric Prydz, the tent wasn’t that busy as it was early on but people were really enjoying it.

Swedish House Mafia were also brilliant but the tent was really busy and my old ‘rave rage’ was back in full force of people pushing past me.

Of course the main reason for going was Jay-Z and by 9:50p.m. (yes I was actually awake and out at that time) I was standing waiting for him to come on.  He was brilliant, and I danced in the rain.

The whole event was so well organised, getting there and home was no problem, and I didn’t see any trouble on the day at all, minimal security in the event (that I spotted) and on the walk back to the free bus to go to Stratford station the roads were lined with security and police making it feel very safe.

On the journey home, I was planning where I will go next…

*whispers* Glastonbury…maybe it is time to go back after my 1st and last time 20 years ago…?
