Field Day - What we did

Ahh Field Day, such a good festival and good memories! We had a ball on the day, there was glittery make up all round, lots of happy smiles, good food, good drink, amazing company, random thumb war fights, mid-riff baring and of course loads of wonderful music!

Solange Knowles made us all want to rock a 70s afro and in fact I bought a 70s jumpusit a few days later so I could channel her look for a wedding I'm going to! Also the music was the perfect accompanient for a summers day. I will definitely be getting on her album when it comes out. Excellent dance moves aswell.

Everything Everything impressed me, I wasn't that fussed for them before but they really got everyone going and it was a good dancing opportunity.

Bat for Lashes was so beautiful I didn't know whether to cry or laugh. I think I went for a bit of both! Singing along to Laura was a definite highlight for me! If you check out my vine account, you can see us swaying along on there! Vine Name: Lucy Clarke

Animal Collective didn't personally do it for me, I needed dancing music later on but their set was amazing and the music was good just not what a slightly drunken lady needed at that time! 

We briefly checked out Django Django but we had to leave the tent to see another band but we checked back in towards the end of their set and it looked to be a corker! I saw them last year and they were one of highlights then.

During the day we also listened on the edges to various acts chilling out on our blanket and heard loads of good music, far too many to mention! 

Have a look at the photos below for all the shenanigans!

 I think it's safe to say that fun was had by all!

Also slight footnote........I brought a whole toilet roll for the day and whilst everyone mocked me at the beginning, I was the toilet paper fairy by the end of the day! Just wanted to point that out!




  1. Django Django (Diablo Diablo) were by far my favourite act last year. I'm so sad that I missed out on seeing Solange! Thanks for the great snaps - I *almost* feel like I was there. Lucy; the seasoned festival goer. all you needed was some Soreen and a pouch of wine!

  2. Thanks for the lovely comment! I missed my soreen and pouch of wine! It just doesn't quite feel like a festival without it! Maybe next week when you return from travels we will go festival-ling once more? xx
