Truck Festival 2012


What I wore:
First outfit: Floral Top - Topshop // Leather patch leggings - H&M (old, similar here) // Hoody - Superdry
Second outfit: Skull Top - Republic // Leather patch leggings - H&M (old, similar here) // Hoody - Superdry // Denim jacket - H&M

Last weekend I went to Truck Festival, a festival in Oxfordshire which claims to be 'the godfather of small festivals'. I dunno if it completely lives up to that name as it's a pretty big claim, but I definitely had an amazing time! The weather was great on the Saturday, t-shirt and shorts weather! I apologise for my pasty white legs, that's pretty much the first sun they've seen all year.

The lineup was a really good mix, some of the bands there included The Temper Trap, Mystery Jets, Guillemots, British Sea Power, Dog is Dead and Little Comets among many others. The bands/artists I personally enjoyed the most were Tim Minchin (the comedian/songwriter... amazing!), Tellison, Boat to Row and King Charles. We were lucky enough to bump into King Charles outside the tent after his set, he was so nice and chatting to everyone and having photos (last photo) :) I haven't stopped listening to his album all week!

The theme on the Saturday was wild animals, but as we weren't sure what the weather was gonna be like before we got there we just decided to do facepaint so we could still wear jackets etc and not worry about covering up our costumes! Just thought I'd whack this in here incase you wondered what the random tiger face was all about haha. We had fun asking random people what animal they thought Stefan was... he's the one with the grey face... can you get it?

I'm going to leave you with my favourite King Charles song... you should definitely listen and also  check out the other bands I mentioned too!
