May 1st, my kitchen was heavily decorated ready for our pre-Soundclash party, the girls were fiddling with face gems and the boys were… not so fussed about any glitter. The music festival brings the best in House, Drum and Bass and Bassline to Southampton for one day and we were going to make the most of it!
Our party of 15 split up to get to the site 40 minutes out of the City centre. The weather was on our side so sunglasses were on and raincoats were stuffed into a rucksack. I had bought a holographic rain coat last minute from MissGuided but thankfully didn’t need it (also saw at least 7 other girls in it which was a bit annoying).
The first act we saw was Majestic, DJ we kept missing when he has played at Switch (local club) so it was great to finally see him and on such a big stage. I was straight up onto my boyfriends shoulders taking videos and photos of his set.
The biggest issue at festivals (other than the toilets) is always a lack of phone signal so much of my time was spent in a smaller group hoping to bump into the others.
Our home for the day was inside the Drum and Bass tent seeing acts like Friction, Hazarad and S.A.S.A.S.A.S, Hannah Wants was another highlight as I had never seen her live before.
Our day ended at 1.30am and we stumbled back to the coach to take us home again (or to Switch as some of my friends decided that 10 hours as the festival wasn’t long enough).
The day did not disappoint and we are already counting down to October 1st for the next Soundclash Festival!
