My all time favourite, SS, invited me to go to the Gibraltar Music Festival on the 7th September. It was all very last minute, so I was lucky to get a ticket! It was only their 2nd year and I was super excited to go to a festival so close to home.
Gibraltar is only an hour drive away from Marbella and has been in the British press lately regarding the border disputes with the Spanish. This is an old on-going conflict and I'm not about to bore you with a political discussion here, but it is always hard seeing your two nations fighting against one another like little school kids.
I was worried about how the Spanish might sabotage the festival but we parked in Spain and then walked across the border without any issues. I love the fact you literally have to walk or drive across the Gibraltar airport runway to get in to the centre. It's quite surreal sharing your pavement with a bunch of airplanes!
The festival was held at the Victoria Stadium and could probably be heard across the whole of Gibraltar due to this geographically small British territory! We had the impressive Gibraltar rock as our backdrop and got a pretty good spot with a direct view of the stage. We set up camp with our very own picnic blankets and got ready to enjoy the 12 hour festival.
S's family and friends came with us so it was a full family affair. The little ones were so cute and super excited about seeing Olly Murs (so were S and I!).
Texas were brilliant!
We didn't chill for too long as Olly Murs was coming up next!

Meet this cute brother and sister. He was too short to see over the crowds, so his sister kept giving him a piggy back so he could watch Olly Murs. It was precious.
Although she is not my favourite artist, her voice really is amazing.
Next year's festival has already been announced for the 6th September 2014 and you will definitely be seeing me there next year. It can only be bigger and better! Follow my blog with Bloglovin
