I decided this was an opportunity to dress up a little and wear something that I haven't worn for a while. I did wonder whether it would be a bit too dressy, but then decided so what, I just like being me!
So, here is my outift and make up for the afternoon/evening:
|Lace top, TKMaxx; Corset, Burleska; Skirt, TKMaxx, customised by me.|
|EYES: MAC Pigment in Sweet Sienna mixed with Water Based Mixing Medium; MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack; Alverde Schwung + Präzision Mascara in Black. LIPS: MAC Lip Pencil in Vino; MAC Lipstick in Media|
The festival was at the Gasometer, an old gas storage facility that has been renovated into flats, a shopping centre and concert halls. It was a little odd being at a concert in the middle of the afternoon, knowing it was still light outside but being inside a completely dark hall!
The first band were just finishing up as we got there, so we had a bit of a wait until the next band, Blitz the Ambassador, who combined jazz, blues, afro beats, hip hop and dance music. They were really good and the song below got the crowd up and moving really quickly.
Next up was Jazzanova performing with Paul Randolph, who provided a set of infectious, smooth soul which was great to dance along to.
The final band of the night was Italian band Jestofunk and whilst they gave a strong, tight performance, there wasn't much in the way of variety. They had a couple of guest vocalists, CeCe Rogers and a woman called Wendy whose last name I have totally forgotten.
All in all it was a fantastic night, I was pretty tired by the time I got home though!
