Brownstock Festival
31st August- 3rd September
Brown Farm, Chelmsford, Essex
So a couple of weekends ago I was fortunate enough to attend Brownstock festival in Chelmsford, Essex. I was allocated a press pass for my blog which was so exciting as it was the first festival I have covered before! 🙂
Luckily for me, My best friend Sam and her friend Jade had both bought day tickets so I was able to hang out with them for the day, here’s what we got up to…
The festival…

We attended the festival on Saturday 1st of September for the day, we went to see Labrinth who was amazing! He really put on a good show and treated us to some sing-a-long as he played acoustic on his guitar which was great!
We also went to see the Artwork DJ set which was fab, it was really kicking off inside the dance tent and there was a great atmosphere! We saw lots of other DJ’s and spent a lot of time in the dance tents and silent disco tent which was so much fun! 🙂
Previous to Brownstock I have only been to V festival, Lovebox and Creamfields which are all huge established festivals. In size comparison Brownstock in a lot smaller as it’s only been around for 7 years but has grown so rapidly as the first ever festival saw the farm gates open for 100 friends, 2 BBQs and 1 trailer for a stage! Now the festival has the likes of Labrinth, Nero, Zane Lowe, Toddla T and Doorly amongst many others in the line up!
Although Brownstock was a lot smaller I thought the layout was great, it was really easy to get around. The camping area, toilets, bar and food where all easily accessible and clear to find. There was no big cues for anything so you were able to grab a drink within 5 minutes and we didn’t cue to get into the festival at all which was good.
A few more pictures on our time at the festival…

I would definitely recommend Brownstock festival to anyone as weekend tickets are only £74 for the whole weekend which includes camping! The line up was great this year and the festival is really local for me at around a 20 minute journey from my house.
I hope that I will be attending the festival next year to, but until then I hope you have enjoyed this post!
I will be doing a follow up post on the amazing festival street style that I snapped at the event and some more in depth pictures of my outfit 🙂
What festivals did you attend this year? Who was your favourite act|?
