Quite a stressful Saturday morning last weekend – well 5 minutes of stress anyway. It was the morning that tickets went on sale for Nibley Music Festival http://www.nibleyfestival.co.uk – this is a great little music festival that takes place a few miles from my home. Tickets usually sell out really quickly so I had to be on the ball.
The beauty of this festival that it is small (less than 5000 people) yet they manage to book some fantastic music acts. This year I was keen to get tickets as they have Scouting for Girls and Land of the Giants playing – two fun favourites of mine.
Tickets went on sale at 9am, so I was up at 8.10am – made sure all the computers were on, the wifi was working and that I knew my PayPal password! I had a Mac, a MacBook, a PC and my iPhone all fired up and ready.
My pulse increased to 104bpm in anticipation, and then at 9am I clicked on the ‘buy tickets’ link and waited what seemed like an eternity. The first piece of technology to get me to the ticket page was my trusty PC! I wasn’t expecting that as it’s usually so slow that I am yelling at it. My iPhone came a quick second! After a couple of false starts when I failed to tick the terms and conditions box, I managed to secure my tickets by 9.04am.
Now I can relax and I am really looking forward to July 4th – lets hope it’s a beautiful sunny day for this Cotswold music extravaganza and it will be great to have my whole family back at home and sharing the day!
