In the summer of 2014, I returned after a 3-week aerial training trip in Bolzano, Italy and I had post-travel blues. Area 51 called to fill some last minute spaces in their team for Bestival on the Isle of Wight and I didn’t hesitate. It was my first time performing for a festival of this scale and I loved every second. For the most part, the team was based on the Port Stage, entertaining the crowds. It was amazing to dance and perform fire to Chase & Status, Annie Mac, Clean Bandit, Green Velvet…the list goes on. We also stilt-walked for the Bestival parade, and did some general walkabout work across the fields. Oh….and we partied, obviously.
