We did our first ever music festival last weekend at the beautiful Fulham Palace in London! We set up over Friday, Saturday and Sunday to apply and retail our temporary metallic tattoos. Fold Festival was started up by Nile Rodgers in NYC and this is the first year they've brought it to London. The line-up included Alison Moyet, Beck, Thomspon Twins, John Newman, Grace, Incognito, Emin, Labrinth, Angie Stone and of course Nile Rodgers and Chic. The atmosphere was very friendly as it's a pretty small festival and Fulham Palace, being in Central London, isn't sprawling knee-deep muddy country fields like Glastonbury which was going on the same weekend.. We'd say Fold Festival was very civilised and lovely really!
This was the fab view we had from our stall!
Our spanking new gazebo tent looked fabulous - the roof has the Aqua Amor pattern from the tattoo sheet printed on the canopy so we really stood out in the field. And we were the only non-food traders there so boy did we feel special! Not to mention all the delicious food on offer which we got to sample in exchange for a few tats!
Set up and ready for the Festival to start
Most exciting of all was when Azzy and Mary got invited backstage! We put a few tats onto the celebrities.
