I heard she wanted to come to shop in Colchester but was put off by the high parking fees and the fact that Jacks has closed.

What´s the point of commenting if you have no idea? Are you trying to demonstrate your disdain for "popular culture"?

I went to a few of the earlier V Festivals and part of the fun is seeing acts that you´ve never heard of before, or that you think you wouldn´t like - but then turn around and blow you away.

Everybody should go along to a festival at least once in their life, it´s great fun, with loads going on away from the main stage.
