Hello… Or should that be Hola!
This month Croft Mill is excited (read: obsessing over) festival season! We love to see what people have made, or how they have altered existing garments to make them festival ready. We’ve been sharing tips and ideas on our Facebook and Twitter pages under the hashtag #FestivalJuly
So being the helpful things we are, we’ve compiled a list of festivals that are yet to happen this year, so that if you’re quick enough you can still join the party.
Benicassim – 17-20th July – Set on Spain’s east side, between Valencia and Barcelona this festival’s line up boasts acts such as Kasabian, Tinie Tempah and Ellie Golding. The official website gives lots of travel information, especially for those coming from the UK. The nifty app also makes it easier to book tickets, check schedules and discover what services are available.
Guilfest – 18th July – Staying in the UK with the kiddiwinks? You can still get into the mood with Guilfest; set in Guildford this family friendly festival has been running for 22 years. This years acts include classics for Mums and Dads such as Kool and the Gang and Bob Geldof.
Leeds Fest – 22nd August – One of the biggest UK festivals followed by a bank holiday Monday… What could be better? This year’s line-up includes Blink 182, Jake Bugg and Disclosure.
Rhythm and Blues – 22nd August- This is undoubtedly our favourite, because it’s in our hometown! One of the major venues is just minutes away from Croft Mill and the festival has roughly 600 artists playing in multiple venues around the town. The festival has been running for 25 years.
OUTLOOK FESTIVAL 3-7th September – This is in Pula, in the beautiful country of Croatia and is the largest bass music and soundsystem culture festival in Europe and is approaching its 7th year. Noteworthy artists include Busta Rhymes and Goldie.
So if you’ve been to a festival, or are going to one… don’t forget to share your creations with us, even if they are just something simple such as embellishing old shorts or tops. We love to see what your making!
