McBusted

This summer, 2 of my favourite bands from my teenage years joined forces to become a supergroup; McBusted!! This supergroup is made up of the 4 McFly boys plus Matt and James from Busted (don't pretend you forgotten being utterly heartbroken when they split 9 years ago...). I'm not ashamed to say I was a massive Busted fan, and I still love their music now! When it was announced the 2 bands would be combining and playing some live shows, well I just had to be there. I'm such a sucker for nostalgia, so imagine my delight when I heard that Backstreet Boys would be supporting McBusted's show in Hyde Park for the British Summer Time Festival.


I love the atmosphere at the British Summer Time Festival. There's plenty to see and do in between watching the live performances; from the big swings and food stalls, to the colourful carnival parade. My favourite bit has to be the Ben & Jerry's corner, where we were served free scoops of ice cream, played games to win prizes and even had a photo opportunity upon a velvet throne with props.




Of course I had a well prepared outfit for the day. As it was a British Summer Time Festival, we were expecting rain, and rain it did. My Busted tee is vintage, I guess. I bought it from their final tour before the split 10 years ago. Quite surprised it still fits me! I paired it with a strategically placed McFly badge (sorry Charlie), vintage daisy print shorts from Pop Boutique, navy Converse trainers and a navy hooded H&M jacket, for when the heavens opened. My striped rucksack is from Accessorize and triple triangle necklace is from New Look.






The boys put on a fantastic show, which started with Matt and James arriving on stage in a Delorean (I kid you not!). For anyone that missed McBusted on tour, or maybe you just want to relive it, Vue cinemas will exclusively be showing a documentary film with footage from their tour called 'Tourplay' on 28th October. There'll also be a brand new single from the boys, released 23rd November.

One last thing before I go; a big congrats to Row Bow who won the giveaway from my previous post! There's a big fat goodie bag headed your way.

Thanks for reading :) don't be shy, come and say hi!

Hi Charlotte! it seems there is a very good atmosphere in that festival!! I love going to festivals and concerts, music really charges my batteries. I love the outfit you chose for this event, so comfortable for dancing and having fun, those daisy shorts are marvellous, I have them quite similar (from Primark, they are not exactly the same), but I think they look better on you :-)

I love one day festivals, you get to go home to an actual bed and sleep after all the jumping and dancing. Awww thanks, though I bed yours look just as good on you :)
