PrettyGreen at V Festival


This weekend, a rabble of PrettyGreeners headed into the wilderness – well, actually a field in Chelmsford Essex – for this year’s V Festival, tasked with promoting Virgin Media’s headline sponsorship of the festival and 2014’s Louder Lounge.  Aside from all the great stuff; the journalist turn out, Justin Timberlake, Professor Green spending more time than we could have hoped doing interviews for us, and of course, Chic, we learnt a lot about ourselves – and each other – during the weekend.

Here are just a few of the highlights from when PrettyGreen did V Festival 2014:

– Our perilous mac n cheese effort, we can eat it forever
– A very skillful game of Flip Cup
– Ben’s apparent passion for Chic… and Paul Danan… and Joe Swash
– Ceri Reed forcing Commonwealth athlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson to sing “Build Me Up Buttercup” at Rockaoke… now called Cerioke
– Tours of an empty festival site on a buggy
– The team watching the Virgin Media Soundclash with Rudimental and Hospital Records from side of stage
– Abbi watching the Virgin Media Soundclash with Rudimental and Hospital Records with Professor Green
– Throwing shapes, and lots of them
– The Wheyhey protein ice cream boys
– Glitterlips. Look them up, but our Saturday night make up will never be the same again
– Crying Lizards. It’s a harder face to pull than it sounds

– Our faultless photobooth talents. Who knew we were all so bloody talented?
