The five of them were trudging through the arrival point of Glastonbury, in amongst the thousands of fellow festival goers. Jamie was looking through a rock magazine, on the page of the band Silver Arrows. She only had eyes for the lead singer, Baz. He was tall, dark and hot and Jamie was going to make him hers at the festival no matter what. One way or the other she was going to shag him, that's all, just to fuck him and if a relationship came of it, then it would have been a fairy tale. It wasn't going to be straight forward though because Baz was in a famous relationship with a famous woman - fuck it, another conquest to tick off the checklist thought Jamie. Her best friend Chessie was next to her, as well as the rest of their group which included the members of Harriet, Chloe and Fergi. Jamie knew her goal was something of a well layed plan because it was Fergi who had 'the hook up'. As they kept walking on, it turned out Fergi had won backstage passes to Silver Arrows performance, however Jamie had an additional plan, and was a matter of if her friends would be with her. She knew Chessie would be game, she was her sidekick, it was convincing the other three.
An hour or two later the gang were setting up camp on the hill. They all agreed they could have had the boys around then. It was a fucking nightmare as they fitted key to hole and rod to rod etc... Jamie then told the girls about her idea of using the backstage performance passes early, to see if the festival would allow them to hang out with the band the day before their set - as they were playing on the Saturday. They all eventually agreed to go along with it, but knew it was about Jamie's never gonna happen fantasy quest of getting it on with Baz.
It was 9am and the gang were at The Other Stage witnessing the end of a secret set by Beady Eye, who were surprisingly alright. When the crowd realized the rumor was true that Liam Gallagher and his mob were playing and when they swaggered onto the stage, the reactions were mixed as Beady Eye were a band that was relatively a hit or miss as they weren't to everybody's taste. However watching Liam in his signature scowling demeanor and the injection the groups music brought to a bright Friday morning start, was a sweet touch. The way Liam sized up back and forth to the microphone as if he wanted to have it out with it. The music was patchy at best as to be expected, but it still left the crowd energized for a long three days. Jamie liked Liam's arrogance, in the weirdest of ways it brought the best out in her.
That's when the group decided to try their luck with the backstage passes, so they made their way to the Pyramid Stage. When they arrived at a huge fence which had a sign on it showing "VIP Backstage Passes Only" the girls knew they had found the right place. Standing by the entrance was a rather unnecessarily large security guard. The girls looked at him, unsure whether to place him as a hot guy or a man that was so unique it was his worst enemy. Fergi showed the passes to the man and it took him five glances back and forth before he opened his mouth. When he spoke, he had a strong Polish accent, lacked personality, basically a robot. He said their passes weren't valid yet and to come back before the band were to play the next day.
The girls weren't going to take that, so they persisted, most of all Jamie. It seemed to be working because to the girls surprise the security guard revealed a soft side that didn't match his exterior image. The girls smelt weakness and then the guard opened the gate and told them to follow him. The girls looked at each other containing their excitement.
It seemed like the high life to the girls and most of all they seemed like celebrities themselves, because as they walked through a secret location, to the left and right of them were luxury caravan's with the bands names on them. Their was Kasabain, Arctic Monkey's, Foo Fighters, Coldplay. The girls were in cloud nine, kinda dreaming, especially when they saw Mick Jagger parading around in a onesie and Kate Moss loitering around with Pete Doherty - the girls couldn't believe what they were seeing. Then they arrived at Silver Arrows caravan and the security guard knocked on the door. Jamie's heart sunk when the Baz answered. The sound of the security guards voice suggested he took pity on the girls when he told Baz they were fans with backstage passes and wanted to have a pre-hang out with them, if they would allow it. Baz looked at the girls, Jamie dropping her chin with flirting eyes, and then he told the guard it was alright and he let them in.
In the caravan, the girls sat on the settee's, next to another group of girls who were Russian. Jamie's lot introduced themselves and they became friends as fast as a brand new magnet. It was clear the Russians were outside of Jamie's lots bracket - they were groupies and had been around the Silver Arrows long enough to qualify to that status. Jamie's lot were brand new wannabe's. The band themselves didn't really participate with either group right now, every now and again they would pop over, have a drink with them and then bugger off. Most of the time they were playing songs with their instruments. Baz himself was pretty elusive, but when he was most present, especially to Jamie's eye, was when his famous girlfriend turned up - Daisy Lowe. She was a bombshell, that's what both sets of girls thought and within a heartbeat felt so ordinary and normal. Daisy and Baz had a smooch on a chair for ages. The girls almost having an out of body experience as they watched them. Not Jamie, she watched with pure evil intent.
When Daisy left and Baz joined in with his band to a song, Jamie decided her next action was to make a move on him before it was too late. It kind of already was she knew, but she had nothing to lose by trying. But the man left after the song and Jamie seemed stuck. However she thought and acted quickly and told her friends she was going outside for some air and left before they could say they were going to join her.
Jamie was trying to find Baz but she couldn't. Instead she kept bumping in and out of famous people like Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age and Arcade Fire who were dressed like characters from an arcade machine. Then to her far right was Pete Doherty playing the guitar, which turned into a collapse on the floor after taking a hit of what looked to be heroin - but their was no Kate, hmmm! Jamie was going to give up the search and stood by a fence, feeling sorry for herself... then she heard these noises, the strange noises you only hear in sex. It alerted her awareness and she followed it. The noises led her to the back of a caravan somewhere. She tread carefully not to be seen by anyone, and when she looked around the corner, OMG! Smacked her face as she saw Baz and Mossy going at it against the caravan. Standing sex, quick, rough, wham bam thank you mam, nice - Jamie thought. Instantly she started snapping away with her Iphone.
The thought of wanting Baz had been sidelined faster than Fernando Torres being benched, the only thought Jamie had on her mind now was becoming rich when she sells the pictures to The Sun. Not after trying for Baz though, she would still give that a go. However if he rejected her she would resort to bribe, something that was her specialty, and she had the upper hand because she had proof. Moving swiftly along. Eventually she stopped snapping pictures. She thought of Daisy and the conclusion was - at least one was out of the way. She was slightly jealous of Kate though, because she really was seductively hot. Baz fucked well, everything Jamie imagined, on the same token Kate was a dynamite in that department too, the stellar get it on no nonsense all the way from Croydon.
It was Saturday, 2pm and the girls were in the enormous tent they called the John Peel Stage. It was full to the brim with people watching the excellent Bastille playing on the stage. Bastille were on their A game and were quite simple magnificent. The vibe from the crowd was more than a hundred percent, whether that be because they had Monday under their belts and were gearing up technically for the main day, or just because Bastille was the best act so far, the audience went for the second. However Jamie was in a fowl mood because she had managed to get the girls thrown out of their VIP treatment with Silver Arrows the day before. She touched Baz's leg when they were all back in the caravan.
Chessie sensed something was on Jamie's mind and said not to worry about it. She told Jamie to try and make it right when they potentially saw the band again later that day before their set. Jamie agreed with Chessie, but the word 'right' was interpreted as her trying her luck with Baz again. If he still declined it was here we go to The Sun we go.
The band were scheduled to play at 7pm, so the girls went to the backstage gate at 4pm to settle in early. But when they were met with their most recent best friend security guard, he looked at them, going back to his T 1000 character way and said they were denied access because the band said so. The girls were mortified, Jamie was ready to create carnage, and when they pleaded, the man ripped up the passes in front of Fergi and threw them on the floor. Jamie looked at Chessie, Chessie looked at Jamie, and it was their signature look of 'let's do some messin'. It was even better when Jamie showed the pictures of Baz and Kate to Chessie, and then decided on a plan.
In the amusement area, Jamie and Chessie stole a large poster from a fence, found some paint and wrote the inevitable on it...
When the band walked out onto the Pyramid Stage, an up roar of enthusiastic cries thundered around Worthy Farm. The girls were in the crowd nearer the front, Jamie and Chessie had the devious twinkle in their eyes and decided to wait for the band to settle before they took action. A few songs into the set, the evening hadn't fully set yet, there was still a lot of light, so Jamie got on Chessie's shoulders and held her banner high in the sky. It showed "BAZ FUCKS MOSS"
It took two minutes into the bands five minute song for the BBC camera's to catch the banner in plain sight and it also flashed up on the projector screens. Even though the music kept on playing, the sign caused a weird stand still across the entire Pyramid Stage. It was that moment like did you just see that? Jamie and Chessie saw the banner and themselves on the screen and they punched the air like hero's. Baz saw the sign in the crowds of people and he was so thrown off guard he forgot his lines and had to style his mistake out by playing a longer solo.
When the song ended, no music continued. There was disruption within the band, activity that seemed restless on the stage. Jamie and Chessie made themselves hidden in the sea of fans, but people around them gave them funny looks, like the music stopped because of them. Then out of no-where and army of security guards appeared, grabbed the girls and dragged them out of the festival. Jamie and Chessie cursed at the guards, calling them cunts, but the guards told them to shut up. But either way Jamie was looking forward to becoming rich when she met with The Sun next week. So it was all fun and games in the end.
