A MIDDLE-CLASS couple who went to V Festival have been left shocked and horrified.
Tom Booker and his wife Emma, who both work as illustrators, decided to buy tickets for yesterday’s V Festival after being lured by appearances from some fairly left-wing comedians.
However they soon found themselves penned into a massive arena with thousands of horny teenagers and people with neck tattoos going mental to Example and Rihanna.
Tom Booker said: “We didn’t know much about V Festival, but we assumed it would be a mid-sized performing arts festival in the vein of Latitude, with an acoustic tent and stalls selling local cheese.
“We could not have been more wrong.”
The Bookers found themselves exposed to most of Craig David’s set after fleeing some 14-year-old girls who claimed Emma was giving them ‘evils’.
Emma Booker said: “I like some urban music but only the kind that gets nominated for the Mercury Prize.
“People were drinking mass-produced lagers like Stella and Skol, or miniature bottles of spirits that they had stashed in their wellies. I asked the security guard where we could find the healing field or a lake where we could go wild swimming.
“He just looked at me and said ‘What?’”
