Confessions of a festival first-timer

The idea of festivals has never really been one that's interested me, sleeping in a muddy field with no real toilets and no showers? No thank you! But when the opportunity to go to the Electric Daisy Carnival came up, it seemed much more like my kind of thing!

The show took place at the Milton Keynes Bowl and was a one day event featuring some of the world’s most iconic DJs, never-before-seen state-of-the-art production, roaming theatrical performers and fairground rides. EDC UK brought never-before-seen production elements to the festival, which included the largest flame units ever used in Europe. Impressive fireworks displays lit up the night sky and confetti canons showered the crowds with 440lbs of colourful confetti.

As far as fashion goes it felt like I'd been thrown into the 70's, the best way to describe it would be boho-hippy meets Cirque Du Soliel. An eclectic mix of face paint, flowers and tie-dye filled the Bowl and the summer sun meant there were no boundries for fans when it came to their outfits!


Want to get your own festival style? So maybe the clothing choices of EDC are a little eccentric for the every day shopping trip, but there's easy ways to transform the carnival craze into a wearable wardrobe.
