The jacket was the main attraction for this outfit so I chose something that was quite plain but matched the colours in the jacket. I had originally ordered a gold chain Top to wear but it got stuck at customs and it was too late for me to get another, booo! So I ended up having to wear a plain black lace bralet, I teamed it with a gold sequin tassel skirt/belt that matched perfectly with the tassels on the jacket. It was a bit short to wear alone so I put some black hot pants on underneath and some black fishnets.
I wore my sequin bumbag again and platform sandals as they were the only shoes I took so I was really hoping the mud wouldn't be too bad. Luckily it didn't get too muddy so they survived the day and they were really easy to wipe clean, maybe not so unsensible after all! I wore my fave rainbow Bombshell earrings again as they are just the ultimate Festival earrings. I wore some glittery socks and a sequin rainbow choker and I put my hair in buns due to the weather forecast and added some pom pom bobbles and glitter roots to jazz it up. For my make up I used a all in one blue bindi then added some gems and glitter around my eyes, gold glittery eyes and rainbow glitter tears. I finished off with blue glitter lips and glitter on my chest. I did have to take my rain mac ready for the rain but I really hoped I wouldn't have to use it.

We arrived half way through The View's set which I was pretty gutted about but atleast we got to see some of the set. Kyle was wearing some fabulous yellow dungarees and they were on top form. Obviously being Scottish they had a massive crowd with a big singalong. They've always been a big fave of mine so I'm really glad they've done some touring this year for the tenth anniversary, as it's been too long since their live shows were in my life!
After that it was Blossoms, we were excited to see them as we'd given up our tickets for their big headline show the day before to go to the Festival. Tom was wearing all white, a risky move with the weather but I think he pulled it off, that boy got style! They played a great set with the usual favourites with the crowd singing along, especially for massive crowd pleaser 'Charlamagne'. I've seen them so many times over the last couple of years and they just seem to get better and better, and they always like to throw in a few random lines from songs making a singalong with the crowd, which ended up with the whole crowd singing 'Last Christmas' by Wham!
Next up was another Scottish band and a long time fave of mine Twin Atlantic, of course the crowd was huge. It definitely seemed quieter than Saturday wether that was down to the weather or the ticket sales I don't know, but it was still really busy and the dull weather didn't seem to dampen everyone's spirits. They played an energetic set with Sam jumping into the crowd for 'No sleep'. They're always great live and I absolutely loved the set.
We then headed over to the king tuts stage for The Amazons, I absolutely love their debut album and hadn't had chance to see them yet so was really looking forward to it. They sounded amazing live and had loads of energy on stage. If you haven't heard the album yet I'd definitely check it out, I'm hoping to catch them again at Leeds Festival next month and hopefully a headline show soon as my local gig sold out before I got chance to get a ticket.
Then we headed back over to the main stage to catch the end up Two Door cinema club, I love them and they always have such a fun set but as they clashed with The Amazons and we really wanted to see them we had to sacrifice most of the set, but what we did see was great. Then it was back over to the king tuts and unfortunately the rain did really start to pour then, so it was rain macs on for the rest of the day, so I didn't manage to get many more photos. We watched some of Clean cut kids set, another band that have just recently released a debut album I love, they're such a happy energetic band and it's infectious watching them.
We then had to leave and head back to the main stage for one of my absolute faves The 1975. I absolutely adore Matty he's hilarious and when he strutted on topless with eyeliner, writing on his chest and soaking wet hair he certainly had my attention. They had a quite long set which I was so pleased about, playing old and new tracks and although it was chucking it down the whole time everyone was still loving it. Matty was coming out with some great one liners inbetween tracks and had me in stitches. They're so good live and I really can't wait for them to tour again and for new music next year.
After that we rushed back over to the king tuts stage to catch Tom Grennan who had not long started. He is definitely one to watch and I think this year is his year. I've managed to catch him at a couple of festivals this year already and was absolutely blown away by his vocals, he has such a soulful voice but then comes out with this proper cockney accent when he talks and seems to have a fun personality to match his singing abilities. I'm super excited to hear new music from him as I've loved all his releases so far. I'm also looking forward to seeing him at his headline show in Nottingham in a couple of months. If you get a chance to catch him at a Festival or headline show in your area I'd definitely check him out while he's still doing intimate shows.
Ending the Festival and one of the main reasons we wanted to go to the Festival were Biffy Clyro. I do not have enough praise for this band, they are literally one of the best bands in the world and as a Scottish band as expected they had an absolutely massive crowd. Simon came out in the most amazing silver sequin trousers, giving us a run for our money in our sequin get ups! There was confetti cannons and fire galore and Simon's beautiful face kept me transfixed for the whole set. They played a lengthy set full of bangers with old and new tracks, they literally could've played for hours and it still wouldn't have been enough.
Everyone in the crowd was in high spirits and they played the rain away with the sunsettting and glowing pink and it really felt like a special gig. You could see how buzzing they were and I think it was definitely a special night for them too. The set ended with 'stingin' belle' with its huge bagpipe outro with a massive firework display coming from the stage and the middle of the crowd. It looked amazing and ended the Festival perfectly. It went way too quickly but it was a really good weekend and I really enjoyed the Festival. I don't think it should replace T in the park as I think Scotland still massively needs that, but it was a good alternative and was nice to have a bit of luxury with a hotel. I'm glad to see it will be making a comeback next year and It could definitely be on my Festival wish list again!!
