What a fantastic end it was to 2016's festival season! I had the pleasure of spending four incredible days on the beautiful Isle of Wight getting my sass on at the renowned boutique music festival 'Bestival.' Four fun filled days consisting of music, dancing, exploring, activities oh and did I mention MORE dancing!
This year's theme was 'The Future Is Here', taking place from the 8th - 11th September the annual event aside from the live acts has a huge spotlight on the fancy dress themes. Now into their twelfth year the creativity put into the outfits certainly did not disappoint.
One of my favourite places within the festival definitely had to be the 'Dress Up Tent.' Inside this magical tent is where I was able to become the true festival QUEEN! Inside were a plethora of festival chic and costume brands topped off with a makeup station and lashes for days. Literally days, I've never witnessed so many at once in my life!
I was spoiled by the absolute babes from State of Disarray who so kindly dressed myself and a friend in their amazing festival themed attire throughout our stay. They so rightly call state that they are 'A Reckless Fashion Revolution.' Make sure to check out their store here.
During my stay at the festival I was also treated to amaaaaazing festival inspired make up by the talented Naomi from Poppy & Perle who specialise unique bespoke face and body art. Kitted out with an impressive collection of face paint, glitter, sequins you name it! To see more of their work check out their website here.
Ok so admittedly I spent a generous amount of my time in the 'Dress up Tent', but how on earth could I resist?! When I initially walked in it was literally as if I had entered the ultimate festival goddess' dream closet fit fulfil all of my sassy needs. I think it's safe to say that I shall definitely be paying the tent a visit for Bestival 2017!
See you in there ;)
Each year Bestival boasts of an impressive line up. This years consisting of headliners Major Lazor, The Cure, Hot Chip, from Wiz Khalifa, Sean Paul along side a long list of more eclectic music acts in the mix. Katy B was amazing FYI!
For those who were unable to attend the festival, Red Bull TV was on site from the 9th - 11th September live streaming the event. Click here to watch an exclusive interview with Craig David as he sits down with Red Bull TV to talk about his experience at Bestival and a few more juicy insights into his career, bringing people together with his music and "Creating a time stamp in people's lives." What a legend!
This was my first time attending Bestival and visiting the Isle of Wight and it was one of the most unique experiences I have ever encountered. With so much to offer, I absolutely loved the fun packed four days and definitely did not want it to end.
I'll definitely be returning for Bestival 2017 and I already cannot wait for the reveal of the fancy dress theme! Make sure to check out their website here and to sign up to their mailing list for all future announcements. Pssst... 2017 early bird tickets go on sale at 10am Monday 19th September. See you all next year!
Stay Sassy, xoxo
