Word(less) Wednesday: Leeds Festival!

Foo Fighters

This week we have an extra special photo post for you with a few photos from our adventure at Leeds Music Festival! We saw hundreds of bands, have over a hundred photos, ate loads of junk food and got covered in mud - exactly what you want from a rock festival! 

Foo Fighters

Our highlight was (of course) rocking out to my favorite band the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl made out with a blow up doll and tanked a bottle of beer before the encore. Never fails to please!! They even showered the audience with Foo Fighter dollar bill confetti - so cool!  I'm trying to get my hands on one of these notes for my wall so if anyone has one I will swap you one of our A4 prints for it. Drop me an email and spread the word :D

Still clean here! Haha

Inside the Jager ice bar. This was the coolest place to drink; being full of ice blocks and in a giant refrigerated unit, you can't argue that it wasn't! You even got goodies if you made it in - jager bandanas, binoculars and I even saw a few jager ponchos. Perhaps the only way to make a plastic poncho rock n roll!

The Hives

We had a total blast at The Hives gig - they came on in top hats and tails, sang the awesome anthem Hate To Say I Told You So, and even did a freeze frame pose for this shot! The last time they played here was 8 years ago, but you would never have guessed as they were one of the best live acts :) Looking forward to hearing more from them now they're back!!

The Wrecked Wellies*

*wouldn't be a festival without either!

The Cure

Hooray for The Cure! After an epic set of 31 songs (31!!!!!) We finally got to hear Love Cats in the flesh :D I am one happy lady! Needless to say, I did dance about in a cat like manner, which you can only really do at a festival where people have dressed up as variety packs of cereal (no joke!) On that note, there was also a Mighty Mouse, and a girl dressed as Where's Wally... You have to love that kind of effort! 

We could not see Vivid HQ from here!

Florence & The Machine

Ahhhhhhhhhhh Florence! What a great stage set, right? I have to admit I was a little disappointed by this gig as they didn't play that many of their big songs. We've seen them before at a smaller venue and Florence blew our socks off, so I guess I was spoiled by the intimacy. Don't get me wrong, they were still great, just not great enough for my expectations!

Home time!
I don't know what it is about the end of a festival, but you get the most amazing calm feeling on the way home. After all the excitement over the past few days, it's nice to finally sit down in a real seat. Looking forward to our next big adventure already!

We'd love to see everyone else's photos from the festival so be sure to post your links below :D

And remember to get in touch if you have any of those Foo Fighters dollars - you will make my day!

Happy Bathtime Everyone!


  1. Wow, that would have been freakin' awesome!! So jealous right now!!

  2. Sounds like you had a blast! I have yet to go to a music festival. On the bucket list, I guess.


  3. I am soooo jealous!! Looks like so much fun! I love out door concerts too!

  4. Thanks everyone!
    It really was the best, and totally worth the CRAZY amount of money - if it's not on your bucket list yet I would add it asap! The sooner you go the better - you've been missing out on the time of your life!

  5. Ooooh - I am soooo jealous! It sounds like you had an awesome time. It has been way too long that I went to a concert... Foo Fighters - and The Cure, they are still touring? Wow - Great!

    This is my little WW today - nothing compared to your experience: Instagram Images @ ImagesByCW

    1. Hee hee! Yup, still going strong! I think I've seen the Foo Fighters more times than I've had hot dinners :D They always put on an excellent show, so if you get the chance you have to go! The Cure haven't played in some time, so it was pretty special to get to see them live this year :D Love rock and roll!
