It was great soaking up the sun on holiday

About Town

It's not all work thankfully - I'm just back from a holiday to Spain.

My parents have a little house out there, so I spent five days taking it easy in the sun.

It was a really quiet holiday, I was on the beach all day and then spent the evenings with my mam and dad.

I'm one of eight children, so having them to myself was really weird, but it was great to catch up with them.

I've a few other things planned for the summer as well.

I'm not a massive festival-goer, but Forbidden Fruit and Electric Picnic seem to be the ones I go to every year.

Forbidden Fruit was great fun this year, it always kicks off festival season nicely and a lovely little bonus is that you get to go home to your own bed at the end of the day.

Electric Picnic is also great and it's a nice way to close festival season.

Last year, myself and Ed Smith did two shows live from it and we had a blast.

Plus, there was a great crowd from Today FM there - we're all good mates and weekends like that make me realise how lucky we all are.

Search for Picnic talent

2FM have joined forces with charity Oxfam to find new talent to play this year's hottest music festival, Electric Picnic.

The station launched their national talent search to find 10 hot new acts to join a star-studded line-up, including Florence and The Machine, Blur and Sam Smith (left).

Acts of all musical persuasions are invited to submit a track that they think will bag them a spot on the Oxjam Stage line-up at Electric Picnic 2015.
