Bestival 2012 With Echo Falls in Pictures


Earlier this month I was lucky enough to be included among a group of fantastic bloggers invited to attend Bestival with Echo Falls. It was a brilliant weekend and I had so much fun! Highlights included Florence and the Machine, Stevie Wonder, Two Door Cinema Club, dancing like hippies in the sun to Sister Sledge and Musical Bingo among many other fun things. If you've never been to a music festival before or even if you have, I highly recommend Bestival. It's fun, laid-back and the food options are amazing! Everyone on the staff was super nice and it runs like a well-oiled machine. I seriously had no complaints - it's going down in the books as one of the best weekends of my life!


One of the first acts we saw was Soulwax... They aren't really my taste, but they put on a great show!


Florence and the Machine was amazing! She has so much energy and her strong voice never falters, no matter how much she bounces around the stage!


The Echo Falls Social Boutique was a great place to hang out, listen to music, get a drink, have your face painted and just relax.





The first night was really cold and I didn't plan a costume for the fancy dress day, so I picked up this fantastic penguin onesy and I was very warm and festive for the second night!

A few of us wondered into the forrest and had a little glow stick dance party (completely sober, just slaphappy from exhaustion!) The wild posse above includes Charlie from Shopped and Dropped, Gem from A Fashionable Preoccupation and Alex from Alex Loves.


 Drag Queens serving food - they were seriously pretty!


Amazing Fireworks on the last night after seeing Stevie Wonder!


Oh look! It's Aisling from Fash-ling, another bloggy pal!

I picked up these rad socks while I was there... They're so fun!


The Wagamama Lounge was also a highlight! Good, hot chicken katsu curry with amazing music played by the DJ on hand!


One of my favorite parts of the festival was Musical Bingo, which actually occurs regularly throughout the year in London, so if you're around, check them out! It's seriously fun!



It was a fantastic weekend! Be sure to check the rest of the photos on the Pink Julep Facebook page! Thanks so much to Echo Falls for having me! You were gracious hosts and I had a blast!
