Tom Korni @ Silverstone

On Thursday at about 5pm I had a phone call from an event organiser called Simon. He asked me whether I would like to play at Silverstone, the venue for the Grand Prix, that night for 8pm. Had a think about it (for about 2 seconds) then literally threw all my gear into the car and made my way to the circuit. On arrival, with no queuing or anything, I was met at the gate by security who kindly guided us to the stage, and even carried some of the equipment. When I got in, I looked around and realised how enormous this place was. Finally met event organiser 'Simon' who introduced me to the DJs 'Stuart' and 'Carl' who connected all of my stuff to their sound system. I was proper loud! Did a sound check and everything sounded sick; The bass drum was so loud you could feel it in your chest!I realised when I got there that I was playing before and after the Kaiser Chiefs! Mad!I played a nice laid back first set, which consisted of stuff like 'Romeo and Juliet' etc. Had a one hour break which gave me a chance to watch the karaoke. Picked up a few singing tips (like don't drink 12 pints of lager then get up and sing). My second set was far more energetic, and packed because people had come back from watching the Kaiser Chiefs. I was playing stuff like 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' and 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love' which got people up and dancing. Great atmosphere. Really enjoyed myself!After a very long night, and a very long sleep, I had Friday off and chilled in Bedford with a friend.
