V Festival Day 2

Yesterday I left you, somewhere on the main stage, dancing away to Bob Marley's band.
On Sunday morning, I grabbed us a coffee and some bacon sandwiches to help us start our day.

Sunday provided us with another great line up with performances from Train, Rizzle Kicks, Tinie Tempah, Jason Derulo, Chase and Status and Rita Ora. Not forgetting 'The Killers' who were head lining on the main stage.

After a spot of rain we made our way to the main stage to watch Train.

And by this point the sun was finally making it's way through the clouds.

We spent most of sunday, running from stage to stage, trying to see as many artists as possible.

Back at the MTV Stage, a huge crowd had gathered to watch Tinie Tempah.
I really don't think I can physically put into words how incredible the atmosphere here was. Everyone in the crowd seemed to move as one. Now I am not exactly Tinie's biggest fan but there is no denying how incredible a performer he is.
He had everyone in the palm of his hand during his set, the crowd moving like a wave rather than individuals.

The great thing about V or any festival is that you get to see so many artists (I know that's stating the obvious) but for anyone who thinks that festivals are expensive; just think about how many artists you can see and compare that to what they would charge for their individual concerts.
Doesn't seem too much anymore.

Back on the main stage, 'The Killers's wowed us with old classics like 'Somebody told me', 'Smile like you mean it' and 'Human' but I'm sure you know what everyone was really waiting for.

Just after the final song, the lights went down and slowly but surely the crowd started to cheer....'Brightside, Brightside.' Getting louder until finally the lights came up and Jimmy Carr was standing centre stage.
It wasn't until after that I realised, The Killers always have a special guest. This time,  Jimmy Carr took to the stage and introduced the song we had been waiting all night to hear.......'Mr Brightside'.

It was an amazing end to what has been one of the best weekends.
I think it's safe to say that my first festival was a success and what a great one to start with. I'm hooked to say the least and a couple of us are already planning where and what to do next year.

Of course, suggestions are always welcome.
