Sang Folk On (Folk Off!) at the lovely Greenbelt. So no morris dancer snogging for me but just a bloody funny band. As for the streaking you cheeky monkeys the most naked I got was a babywipe wash in the portaloos.
Soooooo what have I been up to? Greenbelt is an liberal christian arts, music, and comedy festival. There is some God squad stuff there but on the whole I tend to avoid that, or most of it. I concentrate on the music, the comedy and the Jesus Arms, which does a very good cider (Crazy Goat)! I am shattered and more than a little high I think. What were some highlights?
Mark Thomas - a comedian who walked the Palestianian wall and told us about it. Extremely funny with little bit in between that suddenly made you want to cry. Think likely the first time the c word has been used by a speaker at Greenbelt
Friday night mainstage - 3 of my favourite singers/bands (Show of Hands, Martyn Joseph and Billy Bragg) so a folky night. So good even tho it was pissing down with rain.
Last orders a comedy and music thing at night with highlights from the day including every night Folk On who are a piss take folk band and absolutely hysterical.
Chilling at the tent at 3am drinking beer and herbal tea with my fab friend
The Jesus Arms, nuff said
Open air communion was awesome around 30000 ppl and the best music and speaking
Talking to random ppl and making new friends - got offered a job!
The first time I was ever told about this festival I thought no thank you it is Christian and i have too much baggage and I dont want to go to some bible bashing event. But i am so glad i did as i have discovered a gem. in the past i have totally lost my mind at festivals and here everyone is so kind nothing gets nicked and it is lefty, which is good for me. And it is not somewhere where ppl care about your faith and exclude you if you dont think a certain way - it is about the arts.
So other than being a little on the tired side, somewhat hypo and needing to not drink alcohol for a while Cracked is great! Going to put my pics on my computer in a mo. Then up on FB.
Missed you all, hope you are OK. Ooh just to form not unpacked and not had a shower yet. Need to do that really hehehe.
Thinking of you all
