Wireless Festival 2012

Tuesday, 10 July 2012

Sorry for not being able to blog lately but ive been really with travelling to London for the Barclaycard Wireless Festival which was held in Hyde Park.
I was very lucky and very fortunate to go on both the Saturday and Sunday of the 3 day weekend  with my best friend / couins Zain Eltigani J
 So heres a little diary of the what happened when I was there at the festival.

Saturday 7th July ( Day 2 of the festival)
In total the crowd was about 70,000 people
12pm- 1400 : Me and Zain took the underground to Marble Arch ( the closest underground to hyde park)

Once we arrived at the venue, it was a sacrifice to stay at the main  stage all day when Labrinth, The-Dream and The Weeekend were performing at different tents . So it was ashamed we didn’t get the chance to see them so we decided to stay by the main stage.

14:00 : Rita Ora performed R.I.P and How We Do (party) , Hot Right Now and other songs from her album Ora

14:50: Tulisa performed her cover of Titianum  that she did for Radio One Live Lounge and some other songs from her upcoming album in September.

15:40: Professer Green.

16:50 : Wiz Khalifa performed some of his great hits such as Roll Up, Black and Yellow, Young,Wild and Free. ( during the time Wiz was performing , I noticed that JLS and The Saturdays and a few stars from The Only Way is Essex  were standing near us at the VIP Stage.

18:00 : Example performed Kickstarts, Changed The Way You Kiss Me and Stay Awake and other tracks from his album Playing In The Shadows.

19:20 Nicki Minaj performed her top hits for example Super Bass,Moment for Life,Starships, Beez in the trap, Ass Ass Ass and various other Reggae songs from Beenie Man.

20:50 Drake was the main act for the night performed She Will, Headlines,Moment for life ( which her performed with Nicki Minaj) Drake performed with one of the stars from The Weekend

Sunday 8th July ( Day 3 and last day of the festival)
In total the crowd was about 65,000 people

12pm- 1400 : Cher Lloyd performed Swagger Jagger,With your love and Want You Back from her album Sticks and Stones.

14:50 Pitbull performed his hits like Hotel Room Service ,International Love, I Like It  , DJ Got Us Fallin In Love, On the floor, and surprisingly Give Me Everything ft Neyo ( yes I said it ,  NEYO WAS THERE AT WIRELESS and PERFORMED WITH PITBULL !!)

15:45 Labrinth performed 2 of my favorite songs which were Express Yourself and Earthquake, he also performed Frisky and Last Time from his album Electronic Earth.

16:40 Rizzle Kicks performed a few of my favorite songs such as When I was a youngster, down with the trumpets and mama do the hump and also Travelers Chant, Stop with the chatter, Prophet and Dreamers (all of these songs were off the debut album Stereo Typical)

17:40 J.Cole performed some traditional Hip Hop songs.

18:50 Jessie J performed Do it Like a Dude,Price Tag,Whos Laughing Now,Dominos and Nobodys Perfect from her albums  Who You Are and Heaven.

20:20 Rihanna ( the main act for Sunday) who performed all her greatrest hits such as We Found Love,Whats My Name, Rude Boy, Where have you been,Only Girl, Man Down,Don’t Stop The Music..etc

To end the show Rihanna performed Umbrella and at that moment when she sang it , everybody in the crowd began to stick up their umbrellas in the air J which I thought was genius :D

Festival Essentials

From this festival, I have learnt what to pack and what not to pack for a festival and what to wear for the festivals.

Wear comfortable clothing ,such as jeans and a t-shirt or shorts and as for accessories I would go for a tribal look, like feathers and aztec prints
Carry waterproofs such as umbrellas, ponchos ,waterproof jackets and trousers.
As for footwear, I would advise people to wear wellies or Dr Martens because at festivals can be very muddy , so wearing sandles and uggs would get ruined reli quickly .

What to pack in a bag

Phone, Money for merchandise and snacks, camera, mints and chewing gum, sunglasses,umbrella ,small bottle of water ( keep it light so you don’t have to carry a lot)
