At body and soul I was in bed at 12 the first night and 11 the following night

sure i wouldnt go to bed that early at home

i had been drinking all day though but still. I used to go nights without even sleeping a wink. Old age. Also i had that kind of feeling like i wasnt missing out on anything, ive done the all night partying in the forest, ive done the nights staying up talking shit drinking....none of them appealed more to me than my blow up bed

i saw this today and i could relate quite a lot http://www.buzzfeed.com/robynwilder/gla ... ties?bfan=

the one night I could have managed to stay up late was the Friday night because I was in great form and full of energy...but I just started walking in a particular direction after arcade fire finished and before I knew it I had virtually walked us back to our tent :|

it was just an instinctive thing to do around 12 every night

that buzzfeed list you posted mojo....I don't relate to it that much

despite being pretty old these days

I'm no longer interested in the late nights yeah but I was pretty sad when monday morning came around and it was time to start packing up

although the inflatable bed is an absolute must nowadays

cant believe we actually slept without one as little as 2 years ago...is it any wonder we weren't right for weeks after that

our coach home was interesting

the driver chose to play pumping 90s dance tracks when everybody was just looking to get some sleep or read the papers in peace

the coach that drove us to glastonbury was completely silent except for a kiwi at the back telling us all about how great her life was and how she was so fucking adventurous

I just kept sipping rum and staring blankly at the head rest in front of me

i took a coach to barnyard festival a month or two ago from dublin

i can honestly it was the noisiest bus journey i have even taken in my life

the average age was about 20 and everyone was full messy drunk at around 5pm and taking yokes to bate the band

that's what I was expecting on the coach down

there was a very young crowd

but no....the driver wouldn't let two lads on with hot food. that's about as exciting as it got.

everybody just sat there, politely listening to their i-pods

I was awake for about 50 hours straight the weekend of Body and Soul

Hadn't done that in a while! Or possibly ever. Rolling back the years

Going to festivals as you get older is grand but you do have to take care of your body a little bit more. Some reasonable sleep and some food. I've always brought an air mattress though. Madness not to.

i always bring an air mattress but never a pump which has sometimes ended up in me never pumping up my mattress the entire wkend

the friday of body and soul i ended up sleeping with the flat mattress over me like an additional blanket to keep me warm

oh lol.....i did try unsuccessfully to get a pump on the way back to the tent that night around 11 or 12 actually.

I shouted 'has anyone got a pump...has anyone got a pump?'

I looked around and there were about 5 traveller lads walking towards us in the campsite and one of them said in his traveller

''A PUMP? YOU WANT A PUMP? I'LL GIVE YA PUMP...I'LL GIVE YA TWO PUMPS IF YA LIKE"

gas...myself and my friend more or less ran into our tent after that

I've got one of them really skinny air mattresses for festivals. Its a great compromise.
