What a way to start of the festival! Woke up on Friday to blue skies and balmy weather. Perfect. No matter how many words I write, I doubt I’ll ever be able provide a description that will do the weekend justice. It’s just one of those things that you have to experience for yourself. By the end of the day I was an absolute wreck and my feet were killing me, but it was all so worth it. To top off an otherwise perfect first day of Splendour, as we were walking past the Mix Up Tent after Grizzly Bear (tired, hungry, in need of good shoes), Scissor Sisters started playing Take Your Mama. That was the only song of theirs I wanted to hear. Perfect timing much? It sustained me for the arduous trek back to the campsite. Thank you Splendour Gods for shining down on me in my time of need. More photos after the jump.
Unicorn! Splendour in the Grass really is a mystical place.
First band of the day: Violent Soho.
The crowd. Millin’. Chillin’.
I wore the Cotton on Dress from a few posts down. Notice that I’m not wearing my pointy cat eye sunnies… BECAUSE I LOST THEM BEFORE I EVEN GOT TO THE FESTIVAL. I had to wear my wayfarers instead. Never fear though, I found them again in time for the last day. They were in the food tent. Also, GIANT PELVIS! Ahh Splendour Art, you never disappoint.
School of Seven Bells. Film cameras weren’t much use for taking photos of bands on stage.
Today was a throw your arms up in the air, wave ’em around like you just don’t care sort of day.
One of the most important things you need to know before you start your Splendour weekend: where the Organic Doughnut Stand is.
Foals. WERE AMAZING. Definite highlight.

More shots from my recently developed roll of film. The focus in these photos is a bit off, but I kind of like them that way.
