Festival, festival, festival!

Who wants to go to Glastonbury Festival to get mud, rain and cold! Ok, maybe this year they got a bit of heat wave so it didn’t rain so much…, but still! I saw the photos and everybody was wearing coats, jackets and of course, wellingtons!!!!! Besides, it’s full of celebrities that they only want to catch all the media attention. Cara Delevingne, Poppy Delevingne, Alexa Chung, Suki Waterhouse, Kendall Jenner and sister! What’s her name again??? Ah! Kim Kardashian,  all of them were there.  Kim Kardashian with husband, helicopter, a pair of insanely high heels and a sex tape flag, the whole package! abaca_506746_004_jpg_4340_north_1160x_white  image les_meilleurs_looks_du_festival_de_glastonbury_2015_3608.jpeg_north_499x_white image2 You can find more photos here: https://instagram.com/explore/tags/glastonbury/ http://www.vogue.co.uk/spy/celebrity-photos/2015/06/29/glastonbury-festival-2015

Anyway, my point is: why to go to he mud when you can go to the sun, take your sandals and park your Wellies and stay away of celebrities that spoil the atmosphere of the music festivals.

Come to the south! South France offers a lot of alternative Festivals that I didn’t know until I moved here.

The Worldwide Festival was born in Sete (South of France) in July 2006 by the joint initiative of Freshly Cut and Gilles Peterson based on one  simple idea : To create a different festival, offering a unique artistic selection inspired by Gilles’s radio show “Worldwide”. DJ, beach parties, Japan Night….doesn’t sound bad?

When? From 6 to 12th of July. Where? In Sete Dress code? something light!, you are going to dance and maybe swing in the sea 😉
