BBC1 Radio Hackney Weekend

For me summer means 3 things..SUN, DENIM SHORTS & GLASTONBURY!

Now, in the absence of two of those this year I was on the lookout for an alternative festival to tickle my fancy. As a former resident of Hackney I was lucky enough to get my hands on a ticket for the much hyped Radio 1 Hackney Weekend! Through a touch of fate my sister had bought one for herself not knowing she couldn’t make it, although each ticket has a photo on I happen to look a lot like Claire (we did share a womb after all) so I breezed through the pretty militant security! I did have my new Alexander Wang shades to cover my face though.

I spent most of the day in the dance tent vibing out to some pretty commercial music. Not usually my thing but the crowd I was with were game, so I threw myself into it.

The highlight of the day HAS to be Jay Z! Now, a lot of friends had been to see him on his recent Watch the Throne tour and the usual response was ‘Wow, the best thing I have ever seen’. Not being the biggest hip hop fan I though this wouldn’t be for me but O-M-GEE it was good. Such a presence, and with Rhi Rhi, MIA and Kanye thrown in for good measure I must admit I was very, very impressed!!

I suppose I should talk about what I was wearing...

Jacket - Topshop - £60 (As seen in Vogue Magazine!) - Buy HERE
Dress - River Island - £35 - Buy HERE
Necklace - Ebay - £4.70 (Including Postage!!)
Hunters - (Everyone needs a pair of hunters for the festival season!!) - Approx £80+ - Buy HEREor HERE.
