Summer means festival season, where people from all over come together to see their favourite artists perform live. Besides the music, one of the most entertaining things to do at a festival is to people watch. Festivals tend to bring out the best in everyone, and allows people to act like their care-free self with very little judgement. Lovebox, one of London’s most popular music festivals, took place this past weekend, and the Champion team decided to take a day out of the office to check it out. Here are the top five types of people you’ll find at Lovebox:
1. The one who’s just there for ‘the gram’
Despite the star-studded headliners, hundreds of people attend festivals not for the music, but just to post it all over their social media for the likes. These people can often be spotted wearing flower crowns and watching the performances through the camera on their iPhone. On the bright side, you might not even have to buy a ticket because you can just watch it live via your friend’s Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter.
2. The lad
The lad, normally found traveling in packs – are guys who have been in the gym for the past six months preparing to walk around the festival grounds with their shirts off. Their goal for the day is usually to drink as much beer as possible. Lads. Lads. Lads. Unfortunately for them, they probably won’t remember much of the festival the next day. Banter.
3. The festival veteran
These individuals have been to every festival far and wide, their arms decorated with colourful tatty wristbands, and they’ve seen every artist perform at least three times over. They have the line-up memorised and know exactly where and when each artist is performing. They’re also usually well-equipped with everything you could possibly need throughout the day, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, and a portable phone charger all stashed in their bum bag.
4. The girl who has lost everything
Having just lost her phone, purse, and shoes, this girl is often spotted wandering around looking for her lost friends, with mascara running down her face. Girls like these serve as a great reminder to always set up a meeting place with your friends in advance!
5. The festival newbie
Festivals can be intimidating. Figuring out what to wear, what to bring, and everything in between requires extensive planning. In reality, there’s nothing that can prepare you for what you are about to experience. Festival newbies may be in for a bit of a shock, often walking around looking dazed and in awe of what they are seeing. Luckily for them, Lovebox isn’t a camping festival, that’s a whole other level. However, you can be almost certain that they will be googling what festival they can go to next on the car ride home.
The thought of going to a festival with your co-workers is an interesting concept because it may be the complete opposite of your typical working environment. However, Lovebox was nothing but fun with the Champion team. It was a great day filled with many laughs and good tunes, and the team returned to the office the next week feeling refreshed and ready to discuss the weekend’s antics.
