Party in the Park Leeds 2012

I mentioned in my last Sunday Update that on Sunday I went to Party in the Park! It’s a free gig (!!) that’s hosted every year in Leeds at Temple Newsam. The tickets used to be really easy to get, back in the day you could go and collect them from a particular place but as the years have gone on and it’s got more and more popular, you now have to apply for tickets and see if you’re lucky enough to be picked and get them! I’ve never been before and I didn’t apply for tickets this year, but Anna’s mum won tickets so I got to go along with Anna and her sister. I didn’t realise One Direction were there until after the application for tickets closed, but thankfully I got to go in the end! It took AGES to get there, we had to queue for 45 minutes just to get on one of the special buses that were running from Leeds city centre to the venue! I bought a 1D tour lanyard thing from one of the (probably illegal) merch guys who stand outside gigs. There were loads of them outside the venue and around Leeds city centre where we had to queue up for a bus. I love stuff like that, so at £3, I had to buy one! We were quite far away from the stage, but thankfully one of my Dad’s cameras that I borrowed has an 18x zoom so I managed to get some decent photos! They look better when the full size photo is zoomed in at 100% because the detail is really good! I just cropped them smaller so they’d fit better! The line up was amazing, One Direction were obviously my favourite act and everyone else’s since everyone went mental when they came on! It was really amazing too because both Louis and Zayn are both from Yorkshire (Zayn is from Bradford, Louis is from Doncaster) so it was good to have them back in Yorkshire! Hopefully I’ve remembered everyone that was there, but here’s a list of the acts that were there!

Cover Drive, Alyssa Reid, Marcus Collins, Stooshe, Alexandra Burke, DJ Fresh, Taio Cruz, Little Mix, Wretch 32, Conor Maynard, Labrinth, Tulisa, Professor Green and ONE DIRECTION! My favourite acts were 1D (obviously) Conor Maynard, Professor Green and Labrinth. I only have one Labrinth song, he’s not really my style of music but he really got the crowd going and his act was amazing!
