Over the past few decades the festival has undoubtedly become something of a phenomenon worldwide. But what is it about the Great British tradition of donning Hunters and hot pants and heading knee deep into the mud to rock out to Muse or The Killers?
Festivals are definitely just as much about the fashion and lifestyle as they are the music, and in Britain that means combining comfort, practicality and style to combat our Great British weather.
For a nation so small we can truly say we’ve mastered the festival; Glasto, V Fest and Green Man have become fixed points in the summer calendar for most. We don’t need to look abroad for music and camping, whatever the weather we do it best ourselves. Our ‘come rain or shine’ attitude makes the British festival so unique; nothing will dampen our spirits!
