Tuesday 20th June.
Following months of preparation, play listing and excitement the day has finally arrived. Tonight I will be heading off for my first ever Glastonbury Festival experience with a merry band of five, and the excitement is at peak levels. The weather forecast appears to be generous, the line up is exceptional and my packing has so far gone unusually seamlessly… what could go wrong? The next week is set to be a fun-filled, alcohol and food fuelled dreamworld accompanied by some of the best bands and artists in the world right now, so to say I am excited would be one of the greatest understatements of 2017.
Day 31’s track is a song by one of the bands on the lineup that I hope to see – but also one that sums up Summer for me simply through its music. I have chosen Seasons by Future Islands; a great track by an even better band.
New Music Every Day is going to take a mandatory, festival forced pause until my return next Tuesday – when each selection for the previous day will be in direct relation to this days at the festival.
To all those going along have an unbelievable time… see you in the fields!
