Often a cider-sodden bone of contention, we don’t sit on the fence when it comes to Festivals – we bloody love them! Reveling in them in all their gin-swigging, port-a-loo glory, we were fortunate enough to be invited to what is one of our favourite smaller events, Beacons Festival.
Set in the idyllic Yorkshire moors, Beacons is but a fledgling compared to those stalwarts of the summer calendar. That said, just like David & Goliath, bigger isn’t necessarily better; great bands, good grub and an atmosphere that is practically electric (literally: see neon sign above) make for a festival that’s not only memorable (well, semi-memorable at least – bloody ale tent!) but leaves you crying into your tent bag at the thought of having to leave.
Always on the hunt for the sartorial, one thing we love about festivals is the fashion fix; gone is the world of GHDs and preening and instead comes a feral sort of confidence, all bindhis and plumage and just not giving a sh*t. Forever on the prowl for an outfit or two, here’s our pick of the crop…
And there we have it. Sleeping bags aired. Tents packed down. ‘Missing’ posters for our dignity plastered all over the town. Roll on next year!
