Hard Rock Calling at London’s Hyde Park 2012

This post promises to be short and sweet unlike Hard Rock Calling’s epic Friday night performance on July 14th. As my first introduction to The Boss, the legend Bruce Springsteen was utterly show shopping. Leaving me completely speechless, funnily enough just like how the concert ended.

More than three hours of truly fantastic pure American rock along with The E Street Band, I felt like I was being embraced into London’s Hyde Park family. Bruce’s devotion to the fans was evident, a love that was completely reciprocated.


This was a real highlight of my summer and now Bruce’s classics and Wrecking Ball tracks rank highly on my iTunes.

Ed Sheeran’s home coming to Thetford Forest

Discovering Ed Sheeran a couple a years ago and learning he was an East Anglian boy, his name became household (in our house) long before his rise to super stardom.

Following his international success, Ed’s return gig to local Thetford Forest was sold out in minutes and lucky for us on July 12 my sister and I were metres away.

The atmosphere at High Lodge, Thetford Forest was incredible as Ed’s performance was just audible over the singing rain-drenched crowds.

In the beautiful surroundings music lovers are encouraged to bring picnics and enjoy the laid back feel of a festival in the forest, being the first time I’d ventured to Thetford, I will certainly be going again. Check those coming soon here.

This had to be my favourite of the night along with the first song I ever heard from Ed Sheeran.

Ben Howard

This time last week I was eagerly awaiting the Ben Howard gig to begin, and he didn’t disappoint!

The performance was equally crowd uplifting, as it was beautifully silence at times. Ben Howard’s mesmerising voice has brought a unique sound to the masses. His popularly is growing and the whole album is one not to be missed.

If you haven’t had the pleasure, these two are my favourite.

And to top it off, what artwork!

And finally if you’ve fallen madly in love like I have, Ben doing his own headline tour in November after a Summer of appearances on the festival scene… honestly it was sooo good!

Happy first of Feb!

Having officially moved into the Leeds Met Civic Library, I’ve been busy trying to make a start on my last semesters assignments and the dreaded dissertation, can’t quite believe university will be over in a matter of months.

So to combine a ‘Photo of the Week’ and begin the challenge of #febphotoaday I wanted to share with you my first photo- ‘your view today’ which has actually also been my view for the last month.

The challenge launched by @fatmumslim  over the iPhone application Instagram, the photo-sharing social network which allows its 15 million users to take photos, apply filters and effects to them and then share their shots with their Instagram followers, or on Twitter or Facebook.

February Photo A Day Challenge

Instagram’s popularity is set to soar as Windows7 is interest in offering the interactive platform, being developed for the latest android phones. For now the iPhone exclusivity is only one factor which makes the Instagram craze grow fast becoming the largest mobile social network.

Here is just one of my favourites to become my ‘Photo of the Week #3’… you can find other uploads by following me on Twitter @Danielle1610
