Line-ups are starting to appear, tickets are selling out already and you are frantically booking time off work and arranging your finances to be able to go to all the festivals you have your eye on this year. Although every festival is different, there are certain things which I think are essential to know for any festival you go to. Have a look at my Festival Packing List and follow my simple Festival Essentials so you will be ready to rock it this festival season.
In September I went on a trip that I can safely say I will never forget (and neither will my bank balance). I went to the fabulous Ibiza.
I went with certain expectations which I can assure you where matched to perfection. Sunshine (sometimes), a beautiful town, lots of drinking, ridiculously expensive clubs, women dressed in nothing more than a shoelace, late nights (or I should say early mornings – they all sort of merge into one) and lazy days. I loved Ibiza. The clubbing was great of course, but the town and the culture was actually just as good. So, have a read of my fabulous time in Ibiza and if you go, let me see your pictures and follow your journey!
Summer festival season might be over, (I know it’s a really sad time) but there are plenty of festivals which kick-off in the winter. Your hair has probably endured all the lovely hot weather of this summer, and now has to be put through its paces in the cold and the wind of winter. Keeping your hair fresh, tidy and nourished on a normal day is difficult but at a festival, it’s certainly no easy feat.
Over the May bank holiday, I kicked off the festival season with a bang (plus a lot of glitter and paint) and went to the fabulous Hogsozzle!
Hogsozzle is an intimate, smaller scale festival but what it lacks in attendee numbers it makes up for in personality, individuality, and creativity. This 3-day festival, nestled in the Hertfordshire countryside was amazing. There were sequins, feathers, fur, fancy dress and enough paint to rival a Dulux warehouse – it all made for a fantastic festival.
What do I need to take to a festival?
This is one of the most common questions I get asked by everyone thinking of going to a festival. Although what I take differs from festival to festival, for the most part, it remains the same. Here is my comprehensive list of what to pack for a festival so that you are ready to hit the festival fields this summer.
For all those that didn’t jet off to Coachella the other weekend, myself included (and yes I have major FOMO) I have compiled all my favourite looks and outfits from Coachella this year. Plus, I have even given you tips where you too can ‘shop the look’ on a much more modest budget!
