R1 Hackney Weekend

Yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of going to Radio 1's Hackney Weekend on Hackney Marshes. The weather forecast was terrible but the sun was out for the majority of the festival, and despite the absolute mud bath that was the field we had a brilliant day (and my Dr Martens performed well). Along with the acts photographed above, we saw Tinie Tempah, Florence and the Machine, B.O.B and others, although I must say David Guetta was probably the maddest and therefore my favourite of the day. The event was free which made it all the more special, and it has seriously got me into the festival spirit - bring on Reading! 

Have any of you been/are going to a festival this year?

Oh em geeeeee. SO jealous you went to Hackney Weekend! Me and my friend were gunna go but we had to drop out last minute due to work commitments! Grr. Looks like you had a really fab time though and real festival adventure! And I only imagine what David Guetta must have been like. INSANE. Forever jealous!

I went to Download festival and the mud was ridiculous, it was like a pig sty because they put straw all over it! Nonetheless, my Dr Martens stood up well too!
