This weekend I worked with CreativeEvents at T4 On the Beach Festival in Weston Supermare.  I would like to review the event so that you can understand what it was like fully.  To do so, I shall list the major features.

If you only read one, read ‘2′.  It’s the best one!

(This comes instead of a list of ‘Highlights’, since I didn’t quite see enough of it all to comment in a fair and full manner.)

What I Thought About During The Festival

1 – Teenagers are smelly and overexcitable.  This is particularly true when they barge themselves into trains to and from a festival which they are particularly excited about.  They also wear silly plastic glasses which don’t let you see out.

2 – Many of today’s popular artists have names which include the sound ‘ee’.  After watching a few of them, I have concluded that this definitely adds to their appeal.  DizzEE Rascal, Tinch[E]Y Strider, PixIE Lott, EllIE Goulding, Professor GrEEn, Plan B[EE], Kel[EEE]is, ThE[EEE] Saturdays.  Admittedly, a few of those are clutching at straws, but you can’t deny that there’s some truth in my observation.

3 – Rain + End of the day = Even fans of JLS couldn’t be bothered to wait for their long-awaited performance.  This mass-exodus was particularly enjoyable to watch.


4 – If I ever get offered the job of warming up a crowd for two hours, I shall decline it.  The poor man tried his best, but there are only so many times that you can ‘rehearse’ loud wooping noises, and there isn’t much scope for learning a dance routine if you’re crushed against thousands of fellow festivallers.

5 – Dancing is brilliant.  It is good excercise, enjoyable, attention-seeking and is a great means of passing the time when you aren’t serving drinks at the bar.  Since everyone at T4 was a ‘T‘eenager who looked about ‘4‘ years old, none of them could pass age verification checks.  Hence empty bar.  Hence lots of time-filling dancing!

6 – One of the Jedward blokes apparently injured their leg live on stage.  I missed it because I thought the entire thing was a load of rubbish and didn’t want to watch.


Next time I shall try to watch the actual festival before offering my opinion.
