Just days after Dimensions Festival hits the Croatian coast, Outlook looks to set pulses racing with 5 days of techno, house and reggae. We're sending Confetti Crowd's very own Lulu and Tiger Lilly to fill us in on what the fuss is all about.

Set against the same idyllic Croatian back drop as Dimensions, Outlook Festival promises an immersive fusion of techno, house and reggae. Now in its 9th year, Outlook isn't going anywhere in a hurry.

Headlining the event is none other than Damien Marley himself, otherwise known as Jr Gong, otherwise known as Bob Marley's son, whose Mother is Miss World 1976 so it looks like talent runs in the family. Blending dancehall, reggae and hip hop Damien, with a collaboration on Nas' 2010 album Distant Relative's under his belt, looks set to carry on the family legacy in style. Joining Marley on the main stage, Brooklyn born Joey Bada$$ comes right off the back of a gruelling tour and a spot at number 1 on the charts to bring authentic New York hip hop to the proceedings. Grime God Stormzy and dnb pioneer Andy C are joined by none other than break dancing, graffiti-ing, metallic toothed veteran DJ MBE Goldie.

Take a boat taxi to the festival harbour and party in the Pula city's ancient amphitheatre, or float away for a sunset lit boat party. Whichever way you enjoy Outlook this Summer, you'd be a fool to miss out.

One quarter of Confetti Crowd, Tiger Lilly is a 20 something Brighton native who can be found roaming YouTube chatting boyfriends, Not Another Salon dye jobs (our bright and bold Brick Lane neighbours, check them out, seriously) and vintage mega hauls ft. yours truly. Fresh out of Uni, Tiger is a stickler for OOTD lookbooks set against dreamy colour pop terraced houses. Fashion Photographer by day, she's just launched an online shop selling handpicked India wears so if sequins, faux fur and bellbottoms are your thing then Tiger's your gal.

What're you most looking forward to about Outlook festival?

Everything! The sea, the sun & obviously the music. I love drum and bass & regaee and I've heard outlook is amazing for that!

What's been your favourite festival of the summer?

Ah I can't choose! All been so wonderful in different ways! And I still have outlook and bestival to go! YAY!

Have you got your outfits planned out, or do you just throw together what feels right on the day?

I haven't got anything planned yet but I tent to just shove a load of sparkles and sequins into a suitcase, hope for the best and decide on the day. I ALWAYS over pack.

Do you have a particular item that you just can't wait to wear?

Yes! I have this amazing new trippy two piece from Souldaze (an amazing austrailian brand that has designed stage outfits for Miley Cyrus) and I've had it for a few weeks but waiting for the perfect festival to wear it! I think outlooks the one!

Who is your festival style icon?

To be honest, the rest of my confetti crowd girlies are my go to inspiration for festivals, they always put so much effort and fun into an outfit. They inspire me daily, and we are all best friends so we get to swap clothes all the time is fab!

Have you got any tips for keeping make up fresh and intact? I know I always end up looking worse for wear after a few festival drinks and being exposed to the elements all day…

Oh god no, I'm the same. At the end of the night my makeup has full on fallen off my face, with not much glitter remaining or anything! ... Lucy swears by setting spray or hairspray? I think she's better off answering that question!

Why do you think vintage makes such great festival wear?

Because it's always so colourful, super fun & vintage patterns are always so funky! Aaaand fluffy vintage coats when it gets a bit chilly at festivals is a girl's best friend. I hate being cold at night at festivals!

What's your favourite item you've found in Rokit?

I have so many. Rokit always has some amazing gems. I think I'd have to go with this incredible jacket I picked up in Novemer last year, it's a big black & red flame fringed leather jacket. It's THE DREAM.

Finally, what will you be up to once the festival season is over?

Oh no! We don't talk of the time when festival season is over! Shhhh!

Meet Lulu Trixabelle

We know her as Lucy Rance, you may know her as Lulutrixabelle, one quarter of the Confetti Crowd frequently spotted hopping around festivals covered in glitter and rainbow crochet with her boyfriend Willy the Wizard (real name... Willy the Wizard?) also donning glitter and rainbow crochet. No judgement here. Taking inspiration from the likes of Dee Goldberg, her Instagram feed is a kaleidoscope of good vibes and positive thinking.

What're you most looking forward to about Outlook festival?

Partying on the beach with guaranteed sunshine, and running around in bikinis all day with our besties!

What's been your favourite festival of the summer?

So far Secret Garden Party was our fave as the weather was perfect, and we had the best camp set up with loads of our best friends & boyfriends. The whole atmosphere there is just amazing!

Have you got your outfits planned out, or do you just throw together what feels right on the day?

We have a general vibe, but usually we just share all our clothes and throw something sassy together on the day. We're just thinking sassy bikinis, chunky sandals and glitter make-up.

Do you have a particular item that you just can't wait to wear?

We picked up some sassy vintage bits from Rokit on Brick Lane which we can't wait to style up!

Who is your festival style icon?

Our fellow Confetti Crowd gals are our inspirations always! They encourage us to dress even more colourful.

Have you got any tips for keeping make up fresh and intact? I know I always end up looking worse for wear after a few festival drinks and being exposed to the elements all day…

My number 1 life saviour is Makeup Revolution's makeup setting spray - it's like Mac Fix+ but only a fiver. It literally sets my face in place all day long!

Why do you think vintage makes such great festival wear?

Because it's almost guaranteed no one else will be wearing the same thing. There's nothing worse than turning up to a party and someone's wearing the same dress as you!

What's your favourite item you've found in Rokit?

So far it would be a remade yellow floral dress - it's the funkiest 70's style shape and it's something i'll keep forever!

Finally, what will you be up to once the festival season is over?

We've been at like, 10 festivals this summer, so it will be nice to have a break and save some money! We'll be working on our own businesses, continuing to work on Confetti Crowd stuff over the winter & of course bringing out our fave fur coats.

Remember that time Confetti Crowd came and visited us at Rokit HQ? Watch the video below for sequins, fluff and... cheese?
