Hogsozzle

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.

Recipe: Salad on-the-go

Festivals are a foodie’s paradise! I have been to festivals and always made the effort to try new food, but with the vast choice of food on offer, it’s hard to know what to go for. Not to mention, that forking out (no pun intended) on food every day can cost an absolute fortune. This very simple and healthy recipe is a go-to for me when I am preparing my food to take to a festival.

Festival FAQ

With festival season around the corner, I thought my next post should be a festival FAQ which can answer a handful of questions I get asked either at or leading up to a festival.

I remember the lead up to my first festival, I had no clue what I was doing. I googled about a million things, watched tons of videos on YouTube and trawled through blogs to find out the answers to what I thought were probably very obvious questions.

I wanted to give you as many answers as I could all in one place, as well as provide a platform where you could ask me questions, no matter how obvious you think they might be. So, let me hold your hand and help you prepare as you take the plunge to booking your first, third or hundredth festival so you can have an easier, more fun and worry-free festival experience!

Bournemouth 7’s

Bournemouth 7’s is the largest sport and music festival in the world and is a mash-up of sport, cider, music and sometimes sunshine which takes place every May bank holiday weekend in Christchurch, Bournemouth.

If you want an excuse to watch (mostly) good quality rugby, enjoy a drink … or two … or three, dance until the early hours of the morning, play some social sport and enjoy the bank holiday with your fellow students in beautiful Bournemouth, then this is your place!

Festival Bucket List

Although I have been to my fair share of festivals around the world, there are still loads I am yet to experience. I have put together my bucket list of the festivals I have yet to go to but can’t wait to visit.

Bestival

Bestival prides itself on being more than just a music festival. It has so much to offer; from woodland retreats to shisha bars, yoga sessions to TEDx live talks, it is a festival of many facets.

Bestival (when I went) was held on the Isle of Wight which had quaint little shops selling crabbing lines and homemade toffees, cosy pubs, streets lined with bunting and the smell of the sea wafting around every corner. It really was unlike any other place I had been to for a festival.
