Hackney: 'Loud and proud'!26th June 2012
Hackney was as expected - massive, loud and proud.
I donned my trusty Converse and hoped for a lack of mud.
The site was huge and we even saw a bit of blue sky…
On Saturday I introduced Rizzle Kicks onto the stage. They said they were the most nervous they’ve ever been before a show. I stood side of stage with Ed Sheeran to watch their set...
That night, Greg and I hosted the BBC Three coverage, which was fun, but at times, rainy.
On Sunday I watched the magnificent Plan B’s homecoming Hackney Weekend gig:
That night, as the sun set, RiRi did her thing in spectacular style...
Greg, Gem and I watched on and said goodbye to a wonderful weekend of music and mad dancing.
If you were there, I hope you had a blast! If not, check out loads of footage on the Radio 1 website!
Peace and Love
