Hectic 4 days

Back in May when Kings of Leon were signed to be the main act for Tennent's Vital in Belfast I was over the moon as I love them to pieces so naturally I immediately bought a ticket. It was absolutely incredible but not only because of KOL but The Vaccines, The Undertones and The Minutes were all awesome too!
Despite it not being too muddy I wore my Hunter wellies even though it hadn't been too wet but I didn't want to risk it. Please take note of our fabulous water ponchos, £2 - bargain! The shorts that I decided to wear actually used to be old River Island jeans which were slightly too big so I cut them - doing some DIY!
KOL were incredible as expected but they left the stage without playing Black Thumbnail, Radioactive and Sex on Fire so I had a slight mental breakdown but then they finished off with those 3 which was fantastic!

 Thursday which was Day 2 of T. Vital, Snow Patrol, Jason Mraz , Foy Vance and Kodaline were playing which I would have loved to go and see but it was the night of my A Levels so I thought I wouldn't risk it incase my results were poor (which they weren't thankfully!) So instead we went to Cosmo in Victoria Square which is a buffet of all different Asian, Italian and British foods with incredible desserts. It was a celebration of not only my results but my sister's 16th birthday too!

 On Friday I was completely buzzing for the day ahead as Day 3 of Tennent's Vital had Avicii, Tinie Tempah, Rudimental, Naughty Boy and Tommy Trash all lined up which I knew was going to be absolutely phenomenal! I didn't particularly want to wear shorts again but in the end gave into it as I thought it was the best option and had worked well on Day 1. And of course I could not have bypassed wearing my Hunter wellies again!


It really was an incredible night and the atmosphere during Avicii was unbelievable despite being rapidly pushed about in mosh/dancing pits. We got Pit tickets again for Day 3 and was so close to Avicii even though we actually never really saw Avicii behind all the smoke etc!

Finally to top off the crazy 3 days that I experienced in the middle of August, I attended a Ben Howard concert at Belsonic in Custom House Square. I was expecting quite a chilled concert which it was in comparison to Avicii but it was still pretty crazy which shocked me a lot! We didn't arrive in time to get to see the support act and never even got to know his name but Ben Howard was definitely worth the money! In particular there was a girl who played the piano, cello, sang and played drums throughout the different sets - she was fantastic! It was a great night and it was especially good as I went with girls from school that I hadn't seen recently either!

 To Belsonic I wore disco pants, patterned camisole, leather jacket and black leather fringed gladiator sandals. My favourite song of Ben Howard that he played was "The Fear" as it was really atmospheric and the crowd just loved it!

It really was an amazing couple of days with lovely people! Hopefully you enjoyed looking at my experience and the different clothes that I wore. Feel free to comment any ideas or criticisms!
