I'm in Swindon!
So, I popped down on the train this morning to do some challenges which you'll hear throughout the day today on Radio 1. Earlier on Grimmy's show, I was challenged to find some people who looked like Big Weekend artists. I only managed to find this guy who I thought resembled Bob from Franz Ferdinand. Turns out, not so much. Made me laugh though.
The problem is that it's Sunday and it was early and no one was up:
Anyway, I then went to the site of BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend - Lydiard Park - which, by the way is very lovely. Set in the countryside, it looked amazing in the sunshine today. Here's a few snaps:
A lovely view of the top of the 'In New Music We Trust' tent which will host The Enemy, Basement Jaxx, Doves, Maximo Park and Gossip amongst others:
The main stage tent is about to be raised up!
The backstage showers...Just imagine - the likes of The Prodigy, Kasabian, and Aled all soaping themselves down in here:
And finally for now...Scott Mills' portacabin. No sign of his wine delivery yet. I imagine they'll be reversing that up to the door mid-week.
Next challenge with Nihal after 1pm today!
