Would you believe I had never been to a festival before and then I went to two in the space of a week. A few days after Lost Village festival, (whilst still not fully recovered) Lewis and I headed off to Electric Fields festival. Only a 60 minute drive south of Glasgow / Edinburgh and set in the beautiful grounds of Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries, Electric Fields is one of Scotlands biggest growing festivals. 

Thousands of happy Scots flocked to Dumfries for the two day festival and the craic didn’t seem to wilt all weekend. The festival started on the Friday but unfortunately we couldn’t make the first day so Lewis and I arrived on the Saturday at around 1pm. We set up camp, cracked open some dark fruits and people watched some very happy Scottish festival goers that were enjoying the (for once) great weather. Around 10 cans later we headed into the festival (a 1 minute walk from the campsite). Basked in glorious Scottish sunshine was a vintage clothes stalls, fun fair rides, food vans and plenty of stages with music to please everyone. It was so nice to see such a variety of age ranges at EF. Every age seemed to be there and everyone seemed to be absolutely loving life.  

The line up was jam packed with amazing artists, some home grown Scottish and some from further afield but absolutely every taste in music is covered here.  From Frightened rabbit, to Jackmaster, to Fatherson, the options were endless. The one act we had to see was Glass Animals, Lewis has been a long term fan but I barely knew their music at all. We got right to the front of the main stage for Glass Animals and they gave the most amazing performance with front man Dave Bayley jumping down to perform in the middle of the crowd. Which made even me fan girl despite not knowing of the bands existence for very long.

After watching Glass Animals and still on a high, Lewis and I spent the rest of the day going from stage to stage and taking style spotter images of the most fashionable attendees. We finished off our day like we do most days, by eating pizza and passing out after watching Dizzee Rascal bring the festival to an amazing close. All in all I’m absolutely delighted to have had the chance to attend Electric Fields, it’s only getting bigger and bigger and it’s fan base seems to be growing even more loyal. Till next year! If you were style spotted you can find you images on my facebook page here-
