On Saturday we hit up the Gentlemen of the Road, Summer Stampede Concert at the Queen Elizabeth park – Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend, Ben Howard, Bears Den, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and HAIM. i know, can you even handle? The whole Olympic Park was created to resemble an old school fair ground with different rides, tombola stalls, food stands, photo booths etc. I loved all the signage – esp these “cheer people” (below) who had signs along the way telling us how many more steps (from the train station) until we reached the concert gates –

Yep. That’s right. I got doused in sticky vodka lemonade. All over my head.
By my own husband.
That one.
He’s lucky I’m so forgiving.

Side Note: Definitely invest in a husband the next time you go to a festival or concert – they have very handy shoulders for when you need to get a better view. Also, if you let them “accidentally” spill their drink all over you, then you will have extra shoulder time as retribution.

Husband took this picture of me while I was on his shoulders.
I had no idea.
Somehow feel the deserving caption is: KAa KAAAW.
