V Festival and Dermot O’Leary


Although I am a bit late on posting this, I have been given V Festival as my placement! Naturally, I am ecstatic, I invest most of my time in music so this was ideal. (Cries over Beyoncé) Once contact was made with Elizabeth Flowers, the person in charge of looking after me essentially, it really hit me that I am going to do this which is all extremely exciting. The first day will be on the 5th of August so it is a waiting game until then to see what it will really entail. The mystery of it all makes it all the more intriguing but works me in to an anxious frenzy.

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Dermot O’Leary with Anna and Louise (wish you were there James, sending you love), he was not only down-to-earth, friendly and just genuinely warm as a person, but a huge help. He was able to use his experience to aid our knowledge of the media world. After his talk, I was able to take a lot of advice away from it which will stay with me for a long time and hopefully will help me utilise my experience working for V fully. This has already turned out to be an incredible experience and the best is yet to come, till next time!
