Hi there! And welcome to Where's My Tent? My name is Jessi, and I'm known as a bit of a "festival fanatic". I've been going to UK festivals every summer since 2007, and I feel like it's time to put my passion to paper (so to speak!) and hopefully give both newbies and festival veterans … Continue reading A big hello!
