The fates have aligned to grant me a long weekend of heaven. I'm going to Bestival in September!
I'm going to help out as a member of crew in Boutique Camping and I couldn't be more grateful. The team are absoloutely lovely. If you're thinking of Boutique Camping for any festival this summer, which includes a nice clean area, remarkable accommodation, friendly staff, SHOWERS and nice pop up cafes, head over to the Cloudhouses website for all your hospitality needs.
So I'm off to the Isle of Wight, that's a train journey to Portsmouth and a nifty ferry to Fishbourne.
The line up has got me crazy excited. Snoop Dogg, Elton John, Franz Ferdinand, DJ Fresh, Wu-Tang Clan, Rudimental, M.I.A., Bombay Bicycle Club, Caravan Palace, Annie Mac Presents, Mark Ronson / Zane Lowe DJ battle, Carl Cox, Rob Da Bank...
Not to mention all the lovely goings on that only a good music fezzie can bring.
I've got 6 months so prepare! Not only do I need a fresh set of camping gear, but the official fancy dress theme has been announced. Nautical. Oh hell yes. Think captain hats and lots of red, white and blue. I couldn't miss out on four days of fancy dress and not broaden my choices, so I'm on the hunt for a decent dinosaur onesie and a good top or bowler hat.
Here's the link to their website with information on tickets, travel, line up, etc.
