It's already been 3 weeks since Green Man; I miss it so much!

Camping with friends, napping in fields in the most beautiful setting, hiding from the rain, excessive layering, dancing to new music, and that buzz that just surrounds you. It's magical.

Though there were some unfortunate lowlights (food poisoning at a festival is pretty much my worst nightmare) the highlights outweighed them by far.
New discoveries include Angel Olsen, Mutual Benefit and Hockeysmith (pictured above) who were all awesome and have found themselves in my day to day playlists.

Absolute favourites were First Aid Kit (v.blurry picture above!) who played an amazing set and shared a particularly beautiful moment with the crowd singing along to Emmylou, along with Beirut, Nick Mulvey, Sharon Van Etten and countless others.

It was such a beautiful festival in every way, and watching the Green Man go up in a sea of flames and fireworks on the final night was a perfect way to end it. Maybe see you next year?

  1. It looks magical - that helter skelter is nostalgic perfection! So sorry to hear about the food poisoning though- definitely a nightmare situation! xxx
