Whoa just got back from Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Carlisle, which is about 3 and a half hours on the train from London. It was such an incredible experience, in the daytime I worked on complying tracks for language from artists such as Tinie Tempah and Katy B, and I got to see bits of some of the sets from the side of the stage, including Black Eyed Peas, Plan B and My Chemical Romance. Even saw a bit of Lady Gaga!
In the evening it was down to the Time Bar for 3 nights of partying hard ’til around 5am with the 1Xtra family to sets from DJ Cameo, Target and Charlie Sloth, as well as special P.A’s from Lethal B and Devlin on the closing night. On Saturday night it was Cat from Channel AKA’s birthday celebrations in the VIP room upstairs with lots of familiar faces passing through.
Today got the train back and went straight into work to cut up some tracks and put them on the system to be replayed again this week. Here’s a video from the event:
