More than a few years ago, I went to what I decided would be my last music festival. The pushing and shoving, the exhaustingly long day, the teenyboppers, running from one stage to the next, I just felt a little old and over it.
My mind had remained steadfastly made up until yesterday morning when the line up for Splendour in the Grass 2011 was released. Pulp. I love Pulp, one of my all-time favourite bands and I've never seen them live as I've always been away when they've toured. I thought my chance to see them had long passed.
Also on the line up – Jane's Addiction, Coldplay (who I don't love, but I've heard good things about them live), Gomez and many more. When I told Skip, he was: "I'm there!"
For a brief moment, I forgot about the fact that I'll be heavily pregnant and that my back is stuffed and that I'm, well let's face it, old. I imagined how fun it would be. What a good experience it would be.
Then I snapped back to reality. I just hope Jarvis and the gang do a side show in Sydney.
