Attend a Music Festival, Done!

 Well, I promised myself I'd go before I reach 35 I'm glad to say I'm not even 30 and I've done it.
Mind you, It's not Glastonbury mainly because it's expensive and you have no choice but to camp the whole 3 nights  but it was still awesome.
It's called T in the Park. It is or was in Kinross, Scotland. They're moving to somewhere else.
It's not as big as Glastonbury or Coachella but I think it's just big enough so you won't feel suffocated.
We went on the first day of the festival so it wasn't as crowded yet although the camping site was already starting to look like tent city.
The grounds were still fairly spacious though


 The music started fairly early. Some bands I don't know, but all of them were quite good.

You had me at six.

 There were break times in between sets about half an hour for you to get re-hydrated and fed.
Haim was next but I just watched half of their show as although they were good but they weren't really my kind of music.

Pinoy din kaya sila? Shade din pag may time.

 Imagine dragons was the next band on the main stage. I thought I didn't know them but my friend said they're quite good so I went.



They were awesome. They were such a performer and so filled with energy.
Ta-ra-ta. Ta-ra-ta. Oh, How I Met Your Mother, I so miss you.



Ellie Goulding was next on stage then my highlight of the night, Ed Sheeran.
Biffy Clyro was the absolute headliner for that day and they did pull out all the stops for him - fireworks and confetti - but I went to see the other stages.
Plus, we had to catch something to eat so we had to give our spot. Well,  catch you next time Biff.

Setting up the stage


We were fairly close to the stage.





Amazing voice. Very talented, the only thing was it was very cramped near the stage. I could barely move. Definitely worth it though.



 We went to another stage to cap the day off (there were a couple of stages, btw)
Here is the back of Steve Angello's set.  It was actually getting cold as the night drew on but there were still a lot of topless people. I'm guessing when you're near enough the stage it gets warmer.
They were definitely not on any kind of drug. Definitely not.

Swag

I got a lanyard thingy - which all the cool people were wearing - so I know the time of the sets for each stage. They cost about 10 quid, proper expensive and overpriced but it was useful.

Ironically, it's their last year in Kinross (Balado) and it was just my first time but hey at least I saw them in Kinross. 

 There were a lot of simultaneous acts as there were a lot of stages. Why can't be at three places at once.




 Most important information from the map: loo, booze area, food and oh, yeah ..stage.

Phrase of the event: Here we, here we, here we f/**&%g go!
