With the summer being the prime time for festival-ling (my new word) I thought I'd go in search for the more alternative festival experiences for a bit of fun and to inspire you and cheer you up if, like me, you're not going to a festival this year. There's always next year! I've never actually been to a festival before but there's a huge part of me that wants to at least drop into Glastonbury before I die. It just looks like so much fun!
First up is the Edinburgh Art Festival which runs from the 4th of August - 4th September. Now I've only ever popped into the Tate Modern gallery and it's something I've always wanted to go to, a proper art exhibition. I love drawing and painting and loved art while at school and having an artist in the family means I'm even more interested! I would love to go to something like this at some point. It's a little bit of culture, a bit of creativity and a lot of inspiration.
