Day Out | Leeds Festival 2014



Last month, I had the pleasure of going to Leeds Festival for the day. Although it was quite a while ago, I thought I'd still whip up a little post to share my day out with you guys!

I'd been wanting to see Arctic Monkeys for a long time, so seeing that they were headlining the Sunday at Leeds Festival, it was a no brainer for me to get tickets. Having been to Leeds Festival four times before, I'm a bit of an old timer but they'd actually changed the layout since I last went in 2012 so it felt quite new and exciting.

Arriving in the early afternoon, we had a mooch around and got some food whilst flitting between the tents as the acts we really wanted to see weren't on until a bit later. Although I've been before, it was still really overwhelming to see so many people in such a small space but the atmosphere was really friendly and chilled out. I suffer from anxiety so being in crowds can be a problem for me but the beauty of Leeds is that you never feel too closed in. There's always space in the tents for you to stand without being pushed around but you still have people near you so you feel part of the crowd. The best of both worlds!

Throughout the day we saw many acts, including Cage The Elephant and Arctic Monkeys (pictured below). Arctic Monkeys were the main reason I bought the tickets and they did not disappoint. If you're debating whether to see them or not, without a doubt, go for it! 
I'd forgotten how good live music could be and I'm definitely going to make more of an effort to go see bands in the future. It was such an amazing day and I'm happy I got to share the experience with my boyfriend as it's something we'll remember forever.

It was also so much fun playing around with my outfit and make up as anything goes at festivals. I definitely maxed out on the pink glitter!

What was the highlight of your summer? 
Do you have any exciting gigs coming up?

  1. The highlight of my summer was definitely my day at Leeds - I went on the Friday, mainly for The 1975 but also for Blink. I think meeting The 1975 in the signings tent was probably the highlight of my life let alone my summer! I'm glad that you had such an amazing time <3
