Just crash fall down | The Summer Ball 2013

The end of my first year at Uni finished about a month ago and to celebrate the end of the year the Uni holds a summer ball for all years on campus. This wasn’t something that I planned to attend as it was £40 and didn’t really seem worth it as the musical acts for previous years was not anything I was interested in. However, the day that tickets went on sale You Me At Six were announced as the headline act and suddenly £40 seemed like a very small price to pay to see You Me At Six right outside my front door as I am a HUGE fan and have been wanting to see them for about 7 years.

I was so very excited for the ball purely because of You Me At Six. However, because I was seeing it purely as a concert rather than a ball, I didn’t really bother with my outfit and make up. I spent all of half an hour getting ready as I knew spending forever wouldn’t be worth it as the concert would be dark, pushy and sweaty. I got ready to the sound of You Me At Six soundchecking and it was great! My dress is from last years spring/summer season on Asos. My bag was from Surfdome last year. My lipstick shall be reviewed very soon.

You Me At Six came on and played for at least 95 minutes and I sung and screamed until I lost my voice. They were absolutely incredible and even better than I thought they would be. After they finished we left the ball and were heading home when we met Max and Chris and were shortly joined by Dan and I was so happy and got a photo and stood talking with them for about 15 minutes about how drunk they were. It was fantastic and they were soooo lovely.

Overall, for a night I never planned on going to it very quickly became well worth £40 and is one of the best nights of my life. I have been listening to You Me At Six for about 7 years and they have always been one of my favourites and I am so grateful that I finally got to see them and even meet 3 of them.

Hats off to You Me At Six for a great show.

Have any of you had and proms/balls yet? How were they? x
