Camp it up: we want your festival stories!

Festival fun

Look! What’s that fiery orb that’s appeared in the sky? And why is it so warm?

Yep – fingers crossed, Britain’s ‘Game Of Thrones’-sized winter seems finally to be receding. Which means it’s time to think about sun, fun, and music al fresco at this summer’s festivals. Oh, and don’t forget industrial quantities of cider, and possibly some stronger stuff. Add in fancy dress, huge crowds of people, mud and the psychological pressure of sleeping in tents , and festivals can get – well, a bit silly. Most of us have at least one borderline-surreal story about something taking a turn for the hilarious at a music festival. Your friends are probably bored of hearing yours. But we’re not! We want your festival stories for our summer festival guide, which is due next month. To get you started, here are a few we heard floating around the Time Out office…

‘I went to a festival with my 80-year-old mum, who was dressed as the Incredible Hulk. A huge group of guys picked her up and carried her away on their shoulders. We had to chase them to get her back.’

‘I helped a guy crowd-surf right from the back of the tent during a festival show by Gallows. So what? He was in a wheelchair.’

‘I gave a signed photo of myself to Mr Motivator.’
