GLASTO

  • 25 Jun 07, 01:18 PM

I was djing at Glastonbury on Saturday night... My boyfriend and I decided to do an all nighter and get the train home on Sunday morning..this seemed like the best plan until we realised that the music is all shut off at 3am and the first train doesn't go until 9.30am.

After 2 hours of sitting in the rain in denial outside a winnebago at an afterparty..we eventually left for the trainstation. When we got there there about 5 or 6 bedraggled people were waiting.... my boyfriend fell asleep on a bench and I sat down and started talking. 3 Hours later there were 8 of us in tucked into a first aid tent round the back of the station, swapping stories and having such a laugh. It made me realise why I love Glastonbury, it attracts such a motley crew.. everyone had their story to tell..there was 42 year old Andy..who had a barney with his girlfriend and was going home to london, there was 18 year old adam who got kicked out of the festival that night, there was nolay a rapper who had been performing that day and her manager, there was me who had been djing, a guy who had walked the 8 miles from the site to the train station..it was really interesting. We had a team photo on the platform when the train came.

It was a nice end to a crazy night.

Hope you're enjoying the video download with stephanie macintosh..listen again to the sunday show with Peaches Geldof when you get a chance...Turns out Stephanie is her new best friend!

    evenin annie,

    wow that sounds so good, can't wait to hear more?! I'm goin getting the lowdown tonite from some mates who've just recovered an just might ave come up with the excuse of the week - 'my body's so knackerd cos of all that walking in the mud..'

    I know people'll be talkin about glasto for a long time to come, but can anyone tell me what annie played for her 1 more tune @ the 1big w.end in preston? I didn't dare ask before but I don't care now.

    An with all this glasto talk, Daft Punk have been overshadowed somewhat. What makes you so sure Annie that they wouldn't want you to take your mask off..?

    It's the best thing about summer festivals. Meeting all sorts of people. Anywhere and anytime...
    And most important thing for me... To be surprised.

    I enjoy reading this. You made it personal. You told a good story. A short one but good. It sticked to my memory because I live simliar experiences everytime I go to a Summer Festival. Just to let go and enjoy. God I miss travelling so much...

    Have a very nice weekend Annie.
    ;)

    Dear Annie Mac,
    ...your show is getting better... all the time!, especially your recent video productions you have added to your BBC Radio 1 'blog, especially your presentation/skills as an actress! I recently sent you another CD, a full length one of classic-, Classical-, contemporary classic-, and contemporary Classical Music Cadences. This Demo Disc is a Demo of my very own pro keyboard Orchestrations/Patches... I am selling to major manufacturers (a full-time "hobby", to say the least!). You may remember I always said you could easily be an actress/model! ...all the best, always!

    Philip
