How to tell it’s day three at a music festival

OXEGEN, CASTLEPALOOZA, INDIEPENDENCE, they’re all on this weekend.

Those who have been braving it out since Friday are now on day 3, aka survivors’ day.

Some give up, pack it in and head home on the Sunday, convinced they can’t hack one more evening surround by debauched strangers, followed by another night in a tent.

Some tough it out though. Troopers.

This is how you know it’s day three at a music festival…

You’re not reading this, because your phone is dead

Who are we kidding? If you brought an iPhone it died on Friday night.

Some more enterprising revellers may have brought a back-up phone (aka a Nokia 3210).

What it lacks in internet and photo-taking abilities, it makes up for in EVERYTHING ELSE.

Meanwhile, the smell of this stuff sticks in the craw:

The air is heavy with the scent of used baby wipes and abandoned cartons of noodles

People have just given in, in general

Much like this gentleman…

Once there were 8 chairs between 8 people, now there are two

Those two chairs belong to those conscientious enough to stash the chairs in their tent when not being used.

They will fight to the death for those chairs.
