Only in London ~ Uniquement a Londres

Don't they say the best things in life are for free? I could not agree more after attending the Hackney Weekend sponsored by BBC and Radio 1 yesterday. The event is an open air festival taking place right on my door steps featuring the best and brightest artists in the music industry. I remember seeing the advert in the metro paper on one of my daily commute into work 2 months ago and i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw that they were organising the festival and gave away free tickets for entertainment like no other. All you needed to do was register your interest online and make time on another day to apply for the tickets it took me 4 hours to finally get mine and Mr B's but it was well worth all the wait the traffic on the website was sick... I chose to attend on saturday, as the line up appealed to me more indeed the lead act being Jay-Z the decision was hardly a difficult one Other artists included Sean Paul, Flo Rida, Threyz Song, Nicki Minaj, D'banj, Tinchy Stryder, Chip, Leona Lewis...So here is what i wore; you know rain is never away here in London so wellies are defo the festival shoes of choice to keep all nice and dry!

Love the little heart peeking from above our heads
J'adore le petit coeur qui surgit au dessus de nos tetes
 Ne dit-on pas que les meilleures choses dans la vie sont gratuites? C'est franchement le cas de le dire apres avoir assiste hier au Hackney Weekend sponsorise par la BBC et Radio 1 . L'evenement est un festival en plein air et se passe a deux pas de chez moi figurant les meilleurs artistes du monde de la musique. Je me souviens encore que j'ai appercu la pub du festival dans le journal metro il y a 2 mois lors de mon trajet quotidien pour le boulot. Tout ce qu'il fallait faire c'est remplir une forme pour signifier son interet puis allouer du temps un autre jour pour acquerrir les tickets; ca m'a pris 4 heures pour finalement obtenir les notres mais ca en vallait la peine il faut dire que le site web etait evidemment surembouteille...J'ai choisi le Samedi parceque les actes etaient plus interessants Jay-Z etant la star de la journee la question de choix ne s'est donc pas posee entre autre il y avait aussi Sean Paul, Flo Rida, Threyz Song, Nicki Minaj, D'banj, Tinchy Stryder, Chip, Leona Lewis......Voici donc ce que je portais; vous savez que la pluie n'est jamais bien loin ici a Londres alors les bottes en plastique sont les chaussures par excellence d'un festival pour rester nickel.
