Tigerlily Taylor, our girl on the ground at Glasto
Festival season is well under way, that much is true, but if a few of your friends have booked a whole week off work and seemed to be skulking out early doors there’s just one place they’ll be this week: Glastonbury. The festival of dreams, which takes place yearly on the Summer solstice, is taking place this week, and while your friends might just be starting their adventure, most of the crew will have been there since Monday morning.
Almost a town in itself, Glastonbury is so big it’s almost impossible to see all of it, even if you return year after year, but that doesn’t matter. Finding yourself lost in the music of the Piano Bar or caught up in the energy the headliners bring to the Pyramid Stage makes the festival an experience in itself. Once you go, you go forever and that seems to be the case too for the delightful Tigerlily Taylor, the Bluebella babe who rates Glastonbury as her all-time favourite place to festival this summer.
Who are you most looking forward to seeing play?
I am really excited to see Foo Fighters again, I have seen them so many times but they are always awesome.
Also at Glastonbury: Toots and the Maytals, Chic, Afriquoi, The Flamings Lips, Goldie, DJ Shadow... I'm sure there are many more that I can't think of right now.
Hottest up and coming band?
Best festival for food?
I literally eat trash all weekend at festivals so I'm not too fussed about overpriced festival food! Although I did have a really good ostrich burger at Isle of Wight festival last year.
Best festival for fashion?
I generally wear very comfortable clothes, a lot of tracksuits, shorts and t-shirts but I am looking forward to incorporating some sexy Bluebella lingerie into my outfits this year. Glastonbury is probably the maddest in terms of outfits.
Top tip for festival season?
Always carry wet wipes, hand sanitiser, a disposable camera and water. Carry a small backpack.
Your festival style would be described as….
Casual, comfortable, but this year I am going to step up my outfit game a little.
If you ran your own festival the headline act would be…
TLC (I heard that T-Boz and Chilli just had a reunion in London), Freddie Gibbs, Action Bronson, Lil Ugly Mane, MF Doom, Wu Tang Clan, Led Zeppelin would be amazing. I have always wanted to see Rage Against the Machine, Blink 182 and Red Hot Chilli Peppers as well... that's a hard one. Too many to narrow down!
Favourite Glastonbury memory?
Seeing Wu Tang Clan in 2011 and The Who last year with my boyfriend.
Camp or glamp?
Camp... but glamp if someone threw a teepee my way.
Your Glastonbury happy place?
The Rabbit Hole. It's very secret and always full of amazing music, friends and family
Tigerlily is a dream at creating the perfect festival look, but packing needn’t be that hard! Although Glasto is renowned for being muddy, the weather looks scorching this weekend so it’s best to pack as little as possible, and what’s lighter than a bit of lovely lingerie? Check out Bluebella for the perfect cheeky bralettes, bodies and chemises to take your wardrobe game from 1 to 100.
Happy festivaling gorgey gang!
