To get everyone excited for the weekend, the festival organisers held a launch party at The Mayfair Hotel a couple of weeks beforehand. With a few of the artists gracing the miniature stage, it was a chance to find out which acts everyone was excited for whilst having drinks and canapes.
A couple of weeks later, me and a few girlfriends made our way across to the Olympic Park. Nearly a year after those monumental moments, we found ourselves walking alongside the now-empty Olympic stadium towards the newly crowned 'Queen Elizabeth Park.' It was the most surreal moment. I could see the track through the fencing where Super Saturday happened, with only a few marshals patrolling the perimeter.
I would be lying if I said I didn't try to work out a way to get in there!
Once we were in we got our bearings and checked who was playing which stage at what time, so we knew where to dance throughout the day, before heading over to the VIP Nation area to hydrate after our tube-sauna of a journey! With a BBQ on the go all day, and a trip to the bar for a cider or Pimms, this was the perfect chill out area in between the acts whilst also bumping into a few friends!
Once we were full of BBQ food and a few drinks down, we headed out to the main stage. With Jay Z, Rita Ora, Justin Timberlake, Macklemore, Calvin Harris, Miguel, Kendrick Lemar, Iggy Azelia, Emile Sande and loads more acts playing, the line-up was the best among the big festivals for 2013. With surprise acts joining others on stage for collaborations, it was a day where it didn't matter if you were at the Main Stage or one of the other stages... there was a constant party which didn't want to stop!
My last pint of cider ran out just as Jay-Z finished his encore with JT, so with that perfect timing we headed to the tube station to relax after a party-jumping, sun-shining day at the park.
This was my first time to Wireless, as it was held in Hyde Park last year, but this had to be one of the best festivals I had been to in a long time. The highlights of the day had to be Jay-Z, Calvin Harris and Macklemore. A pimms in hand, the sun shining, and on the same site where the Olympics were held...
Of course it was going to be something special!
Did you go too?
