I’m Marijs and this is my blog Rooftop Antics. My blog is about showing you how much fun traveling out-of-the-box is and sharing all my best travel hacks. I left the fashion industry with a 1-way ticket to India and haven't looked back since.
The fashion at music festivals is a lot of fun but of course the actual music is what it is all about. While preparing for Pukkelpop this week, I’ve submerged myself in the bands that are coming and put together a little playlist. Not only bands that are coming to Belgium this weekend, but also a couple of my all time favorites that were at Rock Werchter, Couleur Café and Les Ardentes. Perfect to play when you’re packing your bags or when you’re on the road! I also added some pics that I still had laying around from festivals last year and this year.
There are a few things in life that make my heart skip a beat. Music festivals are definitely one of those things. Anxiously I await the dates upon which sales start, I’m obsessively listening to the radio to hear the first names on the line-up and when I can’t make it to a certain festival, my heart dies a little bit. For me festivals revolve around the music, the atmosphere, the friends, the fashion and of course the dancing! We’re already well into the festival season and I already got the chance to go Couleur Café and Rock Werchter. Pukkelpop is coming up in little over a week and I can’t wait to choose what I’m going to pack and which bands I definitely have to see.
During the weekends of Les Ardentes, Dour Festival and Tommorowland I’m usually in France just as this year. Festivals I would all love to visit but then again I don’t mind the view that I’m looking at right now. One of my bad habits is counting down to the next festival as soon as the most recent one finishes. Before the summer really started in Belgium and here in France it was time for Couleur Café (and Rock Werchter the weekend after). Zalando invited us to choose a festival outfit and join them to the festival. I knew immediately that I would wanted to wear the Bandit shorts from One Teaspoon. We got the full treatment with a ProNails manicure and professional hairstyling. We even got the chance to ride to the festival in this amazeballs vintage Volkswagen Samba bus. I never thought I would actually get the chance to ride in one! I have to admit that it felt a bit strange to dress up for a festival but I sure wouldn’t mind to have it more often. I would suggest joining me to Pukkelpop?
When Magali from StyleToday asked me to to write a few words on my favorite festival look, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. As you know, Patricia and I love to go to festivals and we’re just coming back from Rock Werchter. Every season I look forward to making a festival report on Coachella, Glastonbury and the likes.
