It’s hard to believe that it is only a month until this year’s Wilderness Festival, when the memories of last year’s seem so fresh (links to all my stories are at the bottom of this post).
I think it’s fair to say that Rachel and I explored every corner of Wilderness 2013. We arrived on Thursday, left on Monday, having danced, eaten, drunk, listened, slept, skipped, biked, swum, spa-d, yoga-d, and generally blissed ourselves out.
One of our most favourite evenings was the late night Saturday Masquerade where, complete with gorgeous party make up by Smashbox underneath our masks, we frolicked in the natural ampitheatre, far from sleeping tent people.
I was determined to wear a ball gown, and struck lucky the day before I left for Cornbury a mere two blocks from my front door, in Camden at Rokit, where I picked up this vintage frock for a fiver. I teamed it with my Whistles biker for an 80s Madonna feel.
We weren’t the only people to dress up. We unexpectedly bumped into my old schoolfriend Ollie- who I had just been talking about minutes before and not seen for two years so that wasn’t weird AT ALL – in his excellent mask at supper in the Moro tent.
But it was when the light went down and the revels really started that all fun broke loose. Here’s Rach
and a whole load of people having a whole load of fun
And here are all my stories from last year:
