We went to the Radio 1 Hackney Weekend yesterday and it was AMAZING! Headliner Rihanna looked super-stylish – only she could pull off mesh cycling shorts! (get her cool T-shirt look here) Jay Z popped out to rap on Run This Town and Umbrella for an extra dose of stardom. We loved how the only use of our umbrella for the day was up in tribute to Rihanna’s tune, as it didn’t even rain!
The whole day had a great, chilled atmosphere, we also saw Azealia Banks, Dizzee Rascal, Florence and the Machine, Lana del Rey, Wretch 32 and Jessie J. Such a great line up!
If you’re wondering why it was in Hackney, the weekend is part of the Olympic festival and Hackney is the Olympic borough, hence why Beyonce (she was watching Jay Z perform on the Saturday night) was hanging out on Hackney Marshes.
