Creamfields London Bank Holiday Festival

I’m sure most of you have heard of Creamfields, the massive festival that falls across the August Bank Holiday Weekend, but did you know there is a London Creamfields across the May Bank Holiday. Held in Finsbury Park the festival sets up camp for two days across the Saturday and Sunday with Above & Beyond and Tiesto headlining the respective days; music, glitter, food, drink and a place to dance in the day is my kind of weekend.

I attended on behalf of The Live Review and arriving on the Saturday I collected my tickets from the Box Office and went through the many stages of the entrance set up. You will need to be scanned by the guards with metal detectors, be checked over by the drug squad dogs and then queue up in the boy or girl’s queues to have final bag checks and pat downs. I understand the importance of these checks to make sure everyone is safe and having the best time without having it ruined by one person, but they could have thought through the amount of boy vs girl queues as girls take longer and there were 2 extra queues for boys.

There is a great selection of food and drink stands, so not only are you not standing around in queues all day worrying about missing all your favourite tunes, but I would say that pretty much everyone is catered for. There is the standard bar which spans across a large portion of both sides of the music tent, two cocktail vans and a wine bar where I was excited to find out you could buy prosecco.

I was expecting the drinks to be quite expensive, but a double Vodka and Cranberry juice was £8.50, and a bottle of Prosecco was £32, which I would expect to pay in most London pubs. You could have a few drinks prior to arriving but don’t go overboard and don’t bring any with you as they will be confiscated on the day.

If you drink beer, cider or spirit and mixers then I would suggest going to the bar on the opposite side of the music tent as there is one right by the entrance which gets extremely busy due to people not having realised yet that the other one exists, which is exactly what happened to us. We grabbed a drink and decided to take a lap of the grounds before making our way into the main tent to have a dance.

As the writer of Glam Glitz Gloss I’m sure you could have guessed that my next stop was the glitter and face painting tent where for just £10 you can have your face and body painted and get yourself into the festival mood. On the Saturday I went for an array of pink and silver glitter running across my face and into my hair, and on the Sunday I went for a galaxy constellation face paint with a splash of glitter. Using a special primer it easily washes off but be prepared to be finding glitter everywhere and anywhere for days after… Read the rest of my review on The Live Review’s website.

    The festival looks and sounds fun. I’ve never heard of the festival because I live in the states, but I do love hearing about other events that other countries have. I’m sure we have similar festivals here in the states, too. The face paint looks awesome!

    You had to dip into the glitter some type of way with the name of your blog for sure. The festival seemed like it was a lot of fun for all.

    I have always wanted to go to a UK music festival, but I think I am too old now, LOL! I did go to a couple festivals in the US when I was younger though.

    This seems like a really fun event to attend. I am not a big fan of face painting, but I am sure that I can still be in a very festive mood when I am there.
