Festival Season, Longitude 2014

Finally I'm home! After spending another 3 weeks on a language course this time in beautiful but pretty isolated Connemara, I'm sitting at my laptop writing a post about longitude which was about a month ago! This summer has literally been a blur, it seems like all I've been doing is packing and unpacking suitcases! Never the less I'm not complaining because it was all amazing. The Gaeltacht was as much fun as always and now after all my travels I've got to cram as many nights out as possible before 6th year and all that jazz. I went to Ikea with my mam the other day and bought a huge new study desk, its a nice desc don't get me wrong but the whole idea slightly depressing... Anyway I'm gone very off topic so  back to Longitude!

We decided to go on Friday mostly because of Ben Howard and Bastille but also because Saturday was the day before the Gaeltacht and if I could sum up the whole experience in one word it would be 'incredible' because that's just what it was! Normally days like this never meet your expectation but everything about it was brilliant! The atmosphere was so chilled, the weather was perfect and all the acts were unreal. Before the festival I started listening to Bombay Bicycle Club and and I'm so glad I did because they have been added to my list of favourite bands!
 The night before there was like a monsoon of rain so expecting a mudslide I went out and got Hunter  wellies (and welly warmers!) which of course with my luck meant it would not rain, not that I really wanted rain but I was all geared out so I was almost disappointed!(almost) Never the less at a festival I highly recommend bringing raid gear because you just never know with Irish weather! I also wore my Topshop Shorts and Top from Bershka throw in a hoodie some midi rings a choker that can also be purchased in topshop (I got mine for 50c in tteh Bananna tree years ago!) and your good to go!

Overall it was a great day and night! So much fun! I was only sorry we couldn't have stayed for the whole weekend, I'm already looking forward to next year when hopefully we will! For anyone heading to electric picnic next week have a bast!
