Got a ticket for this year’s Cornucopia Festival? Lucky old you! Taking place on the weekend of September 23-25, it’s sure to be a fantastic and memorable way to round off your summer.
Although the last few months have been pretty good for us hippies, who love to feel the sun on our skin and the swishing of our maxi dresses, seasons are a changing. With the changing of the seasons, there no guarantee that Mother Earth will continue to smile on us as we head towards the end of September. So, to avoid looking like a bit of a hapless hippy, make sure you’re braced for all eventualities when heading off to what is one of the quirkiest festivals in the UK.
What to Take
Based in the wonderful surrounds of East Yorkshire. Yorkshire has a whole host of things to do and see and so, as well as the Cornucopia festival, there is plenty to stop you getting bored!
Festivals are like little mini holidays and so we need to be prepared. Especially when the venue is on the northern end of the country. Seasoned hippies are a little like scouts – they always go prepared for any eventuality. This becomes more important than ever once we get past the peak of summer. You need to ensure that you have hippy clothing at the ready for all eventualities thanks to this great British weather. You will need to pack for scorching sunshine and for freezing cold.
September so far has been a complete hodgepodge of weather up and down the country, and this exposed location is sure to throw up a surprise or two. No matter how many sun dances you do, there is no guarantee that the Cornucopia weekend will be a warm one. Pack wisely – we all like to chill out at festivals, but not literally!
Woolly jackets and jumpers are not only a hippie clothing staple thanks to their bright colours and distinctive style. But are also a necessity for staving off the biting cold. The warmth will keep you dancing the night away to one of the many great acts at this year’s event.
Believe it or not, stranger things have happened at the Cornucopia Festival weekend than that freakiest of British events – warm and pleasant weather!
