Mumford & Sons, Gentlemen of the Road.

On Saturday we hit up the Gentlemen of the Road, Summer Stampede Concert at the Queen Elizabeth park - Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend, Ben Howard, Bears Den, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and HAIM. i know, can you even handle? The whole Olympic Park was created to resemble an old school fair ground with different rides, tombola stalls, food stands, photo booths etc. I loved all the signage - esp these "cheer people" (below) who had signs along the way telling us how many more steps (from the train station) until we reached the concert gates -

We had an awesome chilled out afternoon listening to Ben Howard, Edward Sharpe, Bears Den, HAIM in the sunshine -

Yep. That's right. I got doused in sticky vodka lemonade. All over my head.
By my own husband.

That one.
He's lucky I'm so forgiving.

Am having problems with getting youtube to embed my videos  - 
but this is a link to the mandatory "oh, lols. it's not a picture, it's a video"

And here is the actual picture picture -

Side Note: Definitely invest in a husband the next time you go to a festival or concert - they have very handy shoulders for when you need to get a better view. Also, if you let them "accidentally" spill their drink all over you, then you will have extra shoulder time as retribution.

Husband took this picture of me while I was on his shoulders.
I had no idea.

Somehow feel the deserving caption is: KAa KAAAW.
