Festival Season...Pt 1

I’m a festival girl and I’m happy to admit it. I like dancing till my feet hurt in a crush of people to my favourite music, I like flowers in pink dip-dyed hair and neon face paint down my arms. I like sitting in the sun drinking cider out of paper cups, I like falling asleep at 3am under the stars, I like meeting hundreds of like minded friendly people who want to have a good time. I love the music, and the fashion and the freedom. It’s like suspending reality for a couple of days and living in your own happy world, where people don’t care about washing their hair and dirty wellington boots are the height of fashion, and everybody is happy and…okay, that’s enough rambling!

As festival season is rapidly approaching, and because I’ve been to so many and love it so much, I thought I’d do a mini series on my blog – on festival fashion and essentials, on surviving your first festival, maybe even a guide on which festival to go to! But for the meantime I thought I'd share some of my festival photos and update you on my summer plans.

This year I’ve got tickets to Rock Werchter, a festival in Belgium (website here). I’m so excited because the line up is amazing, and we’re thinking about potentially hiring a camper van to get us all there. The headliners are fantastic – I’ve seen both Blur and Kings of Leon before and thought they were incredible. Going abroad makes it feel like a proper holiday!

The other festival I’m definitely planning to go to is Green Man in Wales (here). I’ve been to this festival before – as I said in my ’25 things about me’ post, it’s my favourite. It’s generally a folk music festival, and it not only has amazing music – both big names, up and coming bands, and new artists – it also has loads of little stalls, and art, and it’s set against the impossibly beautiful backdrop of the Welsh hills. I have had an absolutely amazing time every time I’ve been and I can’t wait to return!

I’m also hoping I can go to a couple of day festivals – there’s always a lot going on in and around London!

  1. Great post! I'm off to R1 Big Weekend this weekend but other than that I'm only getting to one festival this summer, a Northern Ireland one called Glasgowbury. So jealous of your Rock Werchter trip! That line up is incredible!
