Finally, the sun is out, which can mean only one thing – festival season is well and truly upon us. We caught up with die hard festival goer model Daisy Lowe, 24, to talk watching Blur at Glastonbury, Alexa Chung’s amazing style and horrible loos…
Daisy Lowe's festival style
Grazia Daily: Do you have a favourite festival memory?
Daisy: Watching Blur at Glastonbury in 2009 on the Sunday night. I was a fan when I was younger. It was amazing seeing them back together and watching them play while the sun was setting and the sky was all pink. I was there with all of my best friends and we were all dressed in our nineties grunge gear and Dr. Martins. I remember dancing and thinking I was dancing out of time, and then their song Out Of Time came on. I was like, ‘Oh my god!’
Grazia Daily: Do you have an all-time favourite act?
Daisy: Radiohead are always unbelievable and I always feel in a state of absolute ecstasy listening to them and love having a good rave out. Arcade Fire are always brilliant too. Prince was pretty epic at Coachella in 2008. Leonard Cohen at Coachella was really amazing too, I cried.
Grazia Daily: What are your festival essentials?
Daisy: You always need really good sunscreen, lots of water, lip balm, face wipes, boots, cut off denim shorts, and I always end up taking some kind of vintage see through floaty dress and a Cazza Couture cape. This year for Glastonbury I managed to get some galaxy print spandex that Cazza Couture made into a cape for me which was intergalactically brilliant. There were some people wearing heels at Glastonbury. If it makes them feel better then go for it but I would never trust myself, I’m far too clumsy.
Grazia Daily: What are your make-up must haves at a festival?
Daisy: Nars Tinted Moisturizer and Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick which always makes me look more alive.
Grazia Daily: Whose festival style do you admire?
Daisy: Alexa Chung always looks amazing every year. She’s a very gorgeous one that one. It would be difficult to make her look bad.
Alexa and Daisy are festival BFFs
Grazia Daily: What are your views on the loos?
Daisy: The toilet situation is horrific. You just have to deal with it. The one thing I always forget is how much I miss soap. The first thing I did when I got home from Glastonbury this year was use soap.
Grazia Daily: Do you have a favourite festival?
Daisy: Glastonbury will always be at the top of my list but Coachella is a close second. You can go back to your hotel and come back fresh the next day (you can’t camp in the desert). But there is nothing like Glastonbury, the ground there is so special.
Grazia Daily: Is there anyone you want to see play this summer?
Daisy: I want to go to see Justin Timberlake [at Wireless this weekend]. I used to have posters of him up on my wall when I was 14-years-old.
