These are the 10 most annoying people you met at festivals this year

By Paddy Maddison

We meet some truly inspirational people at festivals.

The bloke who has drawn in a crowd of spectators as he climbs a tree, in a thong, after having consumed 24 warm cans of Carling. The girl who you’ve just watched for 15 minutes trying to call her mate on a pack of Marlboro Lights. The guy who has just accidentally stumbled into a poetry tent instead of the drum & bass tent but will be damned if that’s going to stop him doing a Bez dance in front of everyone for half an hour.

Conversely, there are those breeds of festivalgoer that exist solely to irritate people. They’re there every year, they’re present at every festival and you’ve definitely met all of them.

So with the season not far from over, let’s take a look at ten of the worst offenders.
