I'd never been to Leeds before so it was a bit nerve racking when I decided to go by myself as I thought most people would have applied with friends. As soon as I got there though everyone was dead friendly and it turned out that most people had done the same as me and were meeting everyone for the first time. Shifts were good as well I only missed about 4 hours of the actual festival so I didn't feel like I had missed anything really. Shifts were actually very enjoyable, we were campsite assistants so not a bad job as we got to socialise a bit and got to meet some "interesting" people. You feel your belongings are a lot safer as well as you're camped in the staff area. I was really gutted when it was all over, and I met some amazing people who I plan to stay in touch with. I also met POO GIRL the Leeds 2009 legend. Good times :) x
