The whole concept of a UK based music festival has never greatly appealed to me. Sure you get to see some amazing acts live but the whole camping with no running water and electricity thing whilst being exposed to our rather unpredictable and more often than not rainy summer weather has ultimately always seen me spent the money I would on a weekend festival ticket on other equally useless but great things like clothes and cocktails.

City day festivals however have slowly won me over and have grown into somewhat of a favourite of mine after I first experienced the wonder of feeling like you are at a festival but being able to go back to the comfort of your own flat once it's all over for the day when I first went to Field Day a few years back. This summer I've not only been lucky enough to see one of my all time favourites Jamie xx at Sunfall festival but was also kindly invited by Jose Cuervo to go to Lovebox festival and explore their Tequila Town pop up - think a mini Mexican village serving up food and drinks, tucked away to the side of one of the stages in the grounds of the festival. It didn't take much convincing on their part for me to jump at the chance to go. Being in Victoria park, the festival is literally a hop, skip and a jump away from my house and to top things off also happened to have some seriously good headliners this year, the big return of LCD Soundsystem getting me particularly excited.

Now some festivals can be a bit overwhelming in terms of crowd size and the sheer number of places you can drink and dance at and acts you can choose between which is one reason why I enjoyed Tequila Town on this occasion so much. Yes, my recent trip to New York may have made me a real frozen margarita aficionado ( and the ones served up at Tequila Town proved en par with the incredible ones I sipped on Salvation Taco's rooftop a few weeks back on the Upper East Side) but that wasn't the only reason why me and my friend spent a good chunk of our entire day at the festival here.  With lovely Mexican bites served up alongside a variety of delicious tequila cocktails, changing DJ's spinning some seriously good tunes throughout the day and enough outside seating as well as space to dance this felt like a scorching mini festival within a festival that had a colourful and authentic Mexican flair and made us nearly forget to move to the main stage for the big headlining acts as the sun began to set.

 Despite waking up with a rather sore head the next day (thank God by the way for my current obsession, the ubereats app, allowing me to continue the Mexican theme by delivering a delicious prawn salad with guacamole from Chilango straight to my bed), I had an absolutely brilliant time not only at Lovebox but also at this little yet brilliant tequila fuelled sanctuary that Jose Cuervo created!

I love Jamie xx and LCD Soundsystem - I've seen them both at Coachella, actually! I've never been to a festival in the UK, but I've always wanted to go to Glastonbury once.
