If you could curate your own festival what would the line-up look like with artists dead or alive?
This is too hard to answer as the list is too long – the festival would need to go on for a year at least!
What’s your best festival memory?
Best festival memory is seeing the hugest crowd at Glastonbury and absolutely bricking it.
What’s in your festival survival kit?
Apart from music, what should the ideal festival have?
Lots of smiley people and to be free to get in.
