It’s essential to start your alfresco musical experience in bite-size pieces, so you could try a one-day event like Get Loaded in the Park on South London’s Clapham Common.

Logical thinking will always prevail over the romantic gestures.
This type of thinking is excellent for a life partner if you are seeking marriage or a long term relationship that is stable.
For the rest of us it’s best to give the ‘festival’ look a wide berth.In my book I rather pick stable and practical person, such as an engineer to have a relationship with then a romantic that is unreliable, commitment phoebe who is in and out of your life.This does not mean engineers are not romantic, however more so by the book romantic such as going to look at sunsets, giving red roses or taking you on a trip to napa valley for the weekend.This is about fun not hardship, so pack too many baby wipes, a wind-up mobile phone charger and enough bottled water to last you through a nuclear war.Remember, if you’re not prepared, there’ll be someone there to take advantage and charge you £10 for a stick deodorant.
