Thats the thing, is it not? Accumulation of experience. Because I have been a festival goer since... well, along time ago, I also have had the
opportunity to see a great host of bands in my life. I am perfectly happy just going to a festival once a year, and seeing loads of bands in a few
days. I have been doing this, in one format or another, since 2003, and going to the same festival every year since 2007. In that time I have seen
hundreds upon hundreds of bands, and I have no intention of stopping, until my body refuses to carry my pack, until my legs refuse to support my
weight, until my eyes can no longer make out the stage, or my ears pick out pinch harmonics.
I have plenty of time, between now and then, to go to more festivals, to see more bands, and add to the library of sonic devastation that I have
witnessed, delivered live for my enjoyment.
As for the temperature, there is little that is as aggravating as sweating without actually doing anything. In winter, you sweat when you work, and I
like that. In summer, you sweat while you sleep, while you eat, while you bathe, while you drink, while you rest, while you urinate and while you
excrete, and there is no bloody escape from it. It is a detestable circumstance to find oneself in.
