I think if I had written off my day, arrived five hours early and stood at the front I may got swept away by the music and thought I was participating in a wonderful moment. But looking down from the stalls I realised a few things...
1) The sound quality is really awful
2) I can't see anything
3) This cost £30
4) Florence would rather not be here
I've seen Florence before at the Isle of Wight festival and I can honestly say that was a truly spectacular moment, it wasn't just the sunshine or the festival vibes, it was Florence and the crowd. For a start the enthusiasm that radiated from her and the band was tangible, she interrupted every song with gushes of how happy she was, she ad libbed, harmonised, danced, ran around and improvised. It was a true performance by a great artist. But then the historic Isle of Wight festival is I imagine a tad more exciting than the dark MEN.
(I didn't get any on the night, she would have been a pea anyway, so this is Googled)
