Staying out for the summer is a sarcastic piece by Caroline Sullivan in the Grauniad in which she describes an 'anorak' who plans his entire life around summer music festivals, working at short-term IT jobs in the winter to fund his habit. The person in question is based on a friend of mine (she is his landlady!), although he says he would never be seen at the bland, corporate rock nonsense of V, T in the Park, or Reading. She presumably would be horrified at the thought of getting her feet muddy to actually attend the gigs she reviews?

Glastonbury, followed by Womad and the mud-free Edinburgh festival? Sounds like a bloody good way to spend the summer to me!
