I can’t help it, but I dislike you a bit right now. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s nothing personal, it’s just that I am so incredibly jealous of your good fortune. See I am a bit festival crazed, and Coachella’s top of my festival bucket list.
I was a bit of a late-bloomer to the festival circuit, only having my first taste of one, two years ago. I spent days before heading to Secret Garden Party imagining the worst – what if I got locked into one of those porter loos? What if someone was sick on my tent? What if I was sick on my tent? What if I got lost, never to even find my potentially sick covered tent? Visions of me wandering around muddy fields with an uncharged phone as my sole companion haunted me. I bought every camping mod-con available, practicing with my newly acquired “she-pee” and carrying my head torch around central London with me – just incase. Of course, once I actually got to the festival I realised how ridiculous I had been. I had been getting nervous about three days dedicated to fun. Who the hell gets nervous about having fun?
Anyway, my inevitable envy will extend well into the summer months as people begin to recount their festival experiences and share their excitement about Glastonbury, but if I was going to Coachella here’s what I would be wearing for days spent swaying under the Californian sun.
