With festival season peaking and highlights still looming from Glastonbury, we caught up with fashion blogger and master of festival cool; Kayla Hadlington to get her breakdown for this summer.
Which festivals are you hitting up this year?
“Download this year was amazing, such a cool atmosphere. You either love them or hate them but Linkin Park was my highlight, they played their first album Hybrid Theory, which they don’t normally do, so that was perfect. I’m also off to V-festival with fellow blogger Amy Valentine and Justin Timberlake, Kaiser Chiefs and The Killers headlining which I’m looking forward to”.
Dressing for festivals… Advice please!
“I just wear whatever’s easy; normally good boots and shorts. If you just have a band t-shirt, just cut off the sleeves, put on a belt and it’s as good as good as a dress. I also love the fact you’re tights can be ripped to bits and these are one of the only places you can get away with it!”
What makes a good festival?
“If the toilets are nice then I’m happy! I think the most important thing is the company you have and the atmosphere of the place. At Download, there was a guy running around in a mankini and I guess that’s what you would call ‘making friends’ and the guys were so cool and protective making sure I didn’t get moshed to death!”
Fave music right now?
“My favourite bands at the moment are a bit of a metal mix, Korn, Linkin Park, Disturbed, and Bullet for my Valentine”.
What are your festival essentials?
“I Can’t survive a festival without dry shampoo, baby wipes, suncream spay- not the oily kind, the one that you can spray on your head!”
