When I first saw the line-up in April and decided to attend the big party of Global Gathering this year, I certainly didn't realise I could have such an AWESOME time there. In fact it was definitely my best 20-year-old birthday gift, from myself.
I received the press pass confirmation 3 days before my birthday (4 days before it started), and was literally jumping up and down in my house and booked train tickets and started preparing straight away. Unlike Beach Break, this time I was completely working on my own, carrying my giant new tent, huge backpack, standard festival food bag and all the cameras equipments heading south to Stratford-upon-Avon.
With Skrillex's sensational spaceship set at UKF Bass Culture, explosive performance from Tinie Tempah on main stage, the 'A State Of Trance' Live Broadcast from Armin van Buuren on Friday, to the unforgettable moments of Hospitality crew, main stage headliner Chase and Status, DJ Fresh on Saturday and many more, the weekend has been one of the most exciting and enjoyable shows in my life.
