One of the biggest dilemmas of my life came when the T in the Park 2014 lineup was released. To go and enjoy a great number of my favourite bands or to stay and attend my graduation as well as watch the final of the World Cup? Eventually, it was decided that a festival so perfect wouldn’t come along as often as the World Cup final would and none of my friends were attending graduation hence Emma and I turned up in Balado on Thursday 10th July. The prospect of seeing Kaiser Chiefs, Imagine Dragons, Franz Ferdinand and Ben Howard amongst others meant we instantly realised we had made the right decision. The festival didn’t let us down, with the brilliant music acting alongside friendly people, a good atmosphere and a safe environment. Click on the sentences below to see our reviews for each day.

After Bombay Bicycle Club played Earl’s Court at the end of 2014, they said they wouldn’t do much in 2015. They argued that, with the amount of touring and recording they’d done in the last 5 years, they needed a year off, which was totally fair. It was as a result of this that we were more excited than usual to see they were headlining a new one-day festival in London. Already considering buying tickets, we were convinced when we saw that Ben Howard would join them as co-headliners. Bombay and Ben Howard. The stage was set for a perfect day of sun, music and relaxation in London’s Victoria Park.

Review of the day, where we saw: Bombay Bicycle Club & Ben Howard
