LEEDS FEST 2014


I went to Leeds festival this year after wanting to go for the past two years, Hannah and I left it quite last minute to actually buy our tickets and get organised (we got them the week before) but I'm so glad we went because I genuinely had the best time of my life, so I thought I'd show you guys a few pictures and a few of the outfits I wore too!

(Outfit details in my last blogpost - classy mugshot there)
These lanyards cost us £10 which looking back was probably a bit of a rip off but I think they looked pretty cool and are a nice little memoir of the weekend.


Standard festival neon facepaint. Some girl near the toilets did this for us, I wish we took our own as well as some glitter because that would have looked so good!

Random friend we made and decided to take a selfie with, this was at Relentless which me and Hannah discovered by accident. It was outside under the trees and they played DJ sets which was so much fun, they had sets from DJ Fresh and Zane Lowe and it went on until 3 every morning (our tent was right near it so I never got any sleep until then).

DAY 2 OUTFIT
Two Piece - Missguided
Bumbag- New Look
Kimono - Boohoo
Headpiece - Claire's



Hannah did my hair and I think it looked aaaaawesome.

Lakshmi, Hannah and I, I love this picture I think we all look so happy.


We saw Disclosure instead of seeing the main headliners Blink 182 and they were INSANE. Probably one of the best nights of my life, such a good atmosphere and my friend Nic let me go on his shoulders at one point which was incredible to see everything from such a high point, it was just so much fun and I'm so glad we chose to see them.



DAY 3 OUTFIT
Playsuit - Missguided
Mac - New Look
Bumbag - New Look
Headband - Primark

I think this headband looks so festivally and can't believe it's only £2 from Primark! Loved wearing this playsuit although wearing white may not have been the best idea.



Bucket hat craze! So many people there were wearing them, not sure I pull one off myself.

Vampire Weekend were AH-MAY-ZING.





Paramore were amazing too, I was so torn between seeing them or Courteeners but I'd already seen Courteeners live before and Paramore have always been a favourite of mine, I'm so glad I finally got the chance to see them live!


DAY 4 OUTFIT
Playsuit - New Look
Kimono - Asda
Bumbag - New Look
Sunglasses - Primark


Jake Bugg was obviously amazing too. Nottingham REPRESENT.



I don't even wanna talk about Arctic Monkeys. I like them and everything but have never been a hardcore fan but WOW. I have never felt more in love with Alex Turner than I did in those moments. He has such an amazing stage presence, and although I got pushed over and burst into tears, it was such an amazing night and so good to see them play live again. He played the end of R U Mine? 3 times before finally leaving the stage. Definitely a night I will always remember.

There was also a silent disco every night which we went to a few times which was loads of fun! I can't wait to go to another one during freshers at university!


Overall I had the best weekend of my life, it was just so hilarious in parts and I spent it with the best people I could have possibly spent it with. I saw so many incredible acts such as The Kooks, Clean Bandit, SBTRKT, Metronomy (which we were at the very front for!!), Peace, Vampire Weekend, Jake Bugg, Arctic Monkeys, Paramore, Aluna George, Sigma, Disclosure, and I'm sure there were more I've forgotten. We were so lucky with the weather as it hardly rained, and although it got freezing cold at night and I'm so tired now from the lack of sleep we had, I've made some memories for life there and can definitely say I'll be returning again next year!
