My Sleep in the Park Experience

Waking up in the middle of Princes Street Gardens, with a layer of frost on my sleeping bag, the temperature being around -5°, and at just after 5.15am in the morning is not my normal idea of a Sunday morning. Last night around 8,000 people, myself included, took part in Sleep in the Park, which was an event geared around the phenomenal cause of helping eradicate homelessness here in Scotland.

T in the Park 2016 hitlist

T in the Park is just under a week away and I’m now at the point where I can barely contain my excitement for it.
