This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the debut of the much anticipated El Dorado Festival ran by the talented Cirque Du Soul team. Reporting on behalf of the fabulous boohoo, taking over on the Instagram and Twitter accounts with live updates I showed you all how I got sassy in style.
Ok so where do I even start?! Located in a valley in the beautiful countryside of Herefordshire’s grounds of Eastnor Castle surrounded by stunning lakes, it’s safe to say that the festival site was one of the most serene settings I have ever witnessed. For three days I escaped to a circus-like world complete with a plethora of freakishly amazing characters, from 8 feet tall women on stilts, to jungle animal contortionists, fire eating ladies and sassy salsa dancers (and that’s just a few).
The festival attendees themselves had me in absolute awe with the amount of effort that went into their make up and outfits. With Saturday’s exciting theme of ‘Golden Treasures’, everyone most certainly went the extra mile to get glitzed, glammed and fancy-dressed.
I was surrounded by an array of alter egos coming to life in their absolute element where we were all able to get our sass on and be circus freaks together; we just loved it! The amount of glitter was giving me LIFE, yaaas!
Not forgetting the amazing line-up, with headliners such as Kano, Blonde, Basement Jaxx and Collie Buddz, and not forgetting the “Rewind” LEGEND Craig David himself closing the show. The whole event was graced with talents from genres at all ends of the spectrum.
The event literally ended with a bang, with an emotional surprise finale fireworks display. What an unforgettable experience this has been; memories that shall be treasured forever and new friendships that have blossomed. A big thank you to boohoo for having me takeover for the weekend, and to El Dorado Festival for creating such an amazingly unique festival, what a way to kick off summer!
Stay Sassy, xoxo
