Kendal Calling Festival 2016 - with Emmi Caffe Latté

What a weekend! I definitely have that festival feeling which will probably linger for the forseeable summer. I teamed up with Emmi Caffé Latte to show and inspire you guys to get out this summer and #MakeItAYay day. I know I've certainly done that this weekend. I thought I would give you some highlights of the festival. 
Shorts - Topshop 
Wellingtons- Hunter 
Jacket - Redial 
Top- Parisian 

 My outfit embodied casual festival - mixed with high waisted shorts with a lacy cream jacket an excellent interchagable combination from day events to night time partying.

 My first stop was to the Emmi Yurt where I enjoyed one of their cocktails. I had the YAYpose which looks as good as it tastes. The festival was actually lovely and sunny this weekend so despite bringing the wellies - mud didn't ensue. Thank goodness! This was a much needed refreshing drink for the Afternoon's festivities.

The yurt also had their classic flavours without alcohol which I of course tried and tasted as well. The cappachino flavour is my favourite flavour of the moment.

After we scoped out the list of things we wanted to try this weekend, attempting to fit as much fun into one weekend as possible before back to routine. We wandered over to the different tents before stopping for crepes to watch the woodland stage.
Of course I took the opportunity over the weekend for many pictures with the Kendal Calling sign a good insta worthy place to film.

Music I was very impressed with. Probably the HIGHLIGHT. The first night on Friday the main headliners where Catfish and the Bottlemen (My absolute favourites). I have never seen them live so I have to put this in as one of my personal highlights. The other was Rudimental who I wasn't familiar with all the songs however the atmosphere was electric that night and they certainly had the crowd going.

Luckily I achieved to getting to the front row on the second night to watch Madness who completely stole the weekend for me. It was so much fun and the whole fields where wild. From confetti canons to inflatable balloons and classic songs it ended the second night on a high for the main stage.
After 11pm the party and fun continued into the night maintaining the club feel. Glow did what it said on the tin - the lights where extremely bright and the club songs kept on until 3am with all sorts of ages clubbing through the night. 
House party is where I spent the majority of the late hours of my last nights - a mixture of classic songs/80s tunes and current hits. It was highly entertaining especially seeing all different dancing being displayed.

Rides where switched on to the early hours and (yes I did have a go on this) both at night and in the day. The difference? Actually a whole lot - if you want thrill go on it at night when you've let loose a bit more.
Colourful characters and the arts where all to be seen round Kendal Calling. Quirky, slightly eccentric and very colourful my sort of place! Fancy dress seemed to be worn almost everywhere on the Saturday. Shout out to the men dressed as the Jackson five (pictured above)

A carnival took place on Saturday afternoonn and the Eden arts where open all weekend. The highlight was probably the quirkiness of the art. I will hold my hands up and declare I didn't understand it all. But I tried. The most interesting live pieces of art was too women dressed as cats in an almost Japanese cosplay outfit trapped in a box. Acting out a bizarre scenario of intestine pulling out. However I think I will always remember when I witnessed such a piece of art  - a definitive memory indeed.Even if a confusing one.

This weekend has been loud, entertaining, spontaneous, creative and even a little bit quirky and I've loved every minute of it! I hope you guys can get out this summer and #MakeItAYayDay because the memories last a lifetime. A thank you to Emmi Caffé
Latte for having me and for Kendal Calling for supplying an interesting weekend full of music and not much mud!
