My First Music Festival: Electric Picnic

Electric Picnic-10

My first festival! On September 1st I attended one of Ireland’s favourite festivals, Electric Picnic, in Stradbally, Ireland.

I’ll admit, I’ve never been much of a ‘live music’ person before, so it was interesting to see what the fuss is all about. We saw headliners Franz Ferdinand and Noah and the Whale on the main stage, and many more on other stages around the grounds.

There were people everywhere in fancy dress, stages all over with different types of music, and a ton of tempting food stalls and beer gardens. I tried my hand at beer (a rare occurrence) and indulged in mini donuts and chicken wings. Hey, festivals are an exception to healthy eating!

One of my favourite bands was I’m Your Vinyl, which played on the Trailer Park stage. They were fantastic live.

Another exciting moment for me? First day out in my new Hunter wellies!

It was truly a sight to see for my Canadian self, having never experienced this sort of activity. It’s a mess! I had a great time, but I don’t think I could ever do the camping (below).
