Leeds festival was only the second UK FESTIVAL that Hipster Sunnies had attended
since our relatively new start up back in March. After successfully trading at other
UK festivals with the now growing reputation as a FULL UV trusted sunglasses
merchant we were very happy to be asked but really had no idea what to expect.
Not because we're not hardened Festi goers but more because we had never seen
or felt what it is to be on the other side of such a massive festival fence.
We we're very excited about this trading event and what we found certainly did
not disappointed as we soon realised that trading at an event of this scale is a
whole other thing, ring side seats in the main arena with our marquee backing right
onto the main stage and VIP Glamping (YES CLEAN TOILETS) to name just a few. 
Traders have to arrive on the Tuesday to begin the process of setting up camp
for this event and I can honestly say it was the start of a 6 days of carnage, music
and fun times. With all genres included and party people in their masses the sun
came out right on time so we could crack open our first beers and kick back for
a slow relaxed warm up to the week knowing that soon enough the hardened
rockers would be here to being smashing it out with Über Bands like Metallica,
being that these guys we're headlining we knew we knew we we're in for good
times and that there is the reason this festival continues to dominate as one of
the UK's finest! 
With so much good action happening around us from the mightily established to
the newskool up and comers we pretty much had every angle covered and all that
was left to do was sell some of our sick sunnies, chat to all the cool people that
kept joining us on our chesterfield down at Hipster HQ we were having a great time
everyone we met we're playing their part in what was to be an amazing weekend.
Our 5 picks from the weekend and the stages they rocked were;
DEADMOU5 - Relentless/MNE BBC Radio 1 
ROYAL-BLOOD - Main Stage 
SLAVES - NME and BBC Radio 1
JAMIE-T - Main Stage
METALLICA - Main Stage
Check out the Leeds Official Instagram page for all official images from the event
or the Hipster Sunnies Instagram page for all the silly stuff we we're getting up to
down at the Marquee we rocked it.
We do owe a massive thanks to everyone who have supported us through these
events, came to chill with us and really lived to the code of the Modern Day Hipster,
you we're all cool and fun loving and thats what we're all about. We appreciate all the
love we received for our brand and products and have taken away so much to work
with you were great. We've worked hard to make this happen this year in such a
massive crowd to see what that you guys we're loving it really made it worth the
effort and truly made it happen for us across the weekend.

Before the main arena had even opened to the public the Thursday night down at
the RELENTLESS STAGE was seriously going off with some jacking beats and
sexy house music taking center stage inside what can only be described as IBIZA
style club scene going wild inside the woods. This place really set the scene for what
was an all in all awesome event made so by YOU the people. We had a great time
down here this year and are already looking forward to doing it all again next year for sure.
If like us you have decided that a UK winters not for you don't forget there are so many
winter music festival and there just waiting for you to jump on the flight and get involved in.
