Camping

One of the main parts of a festival is the camping! Whether you love or loathe it, you will need to bring some essentials with you to make your stay a comfortable one.

  • Tent
    Make sure you have enough room for you and your things! One person would usually need at least a 2-man tent. A porch can be ideal for keeping wellies out of the rain and mud out of your sleeping area.
  • Sleeping bag
    To save space in your bag try attaching it to the outside.
  • Roll mat/inflatable mattress
    You’ll want something to lie on. An inflatable mattress is a luxury but can be heavy so a roll mat can be a light-weight compromise.
  • Toilet roll
    Bring more than you think you’ll need. But if you’re tight on space.
  • Reusable water bottle
    Bring along a bottle you can fill up with water when you arrive.  a smaller bottle for you to carry around in the day.
  • Camping pillows
    A couple of tiny blow-up pillows will take up barely any space but add an extra touch of comfort.
  • Torch and lamp
    A torch is an essential for finding your tent on your way back in the evening (and for avoiding tripping over guy lines). A lamp to hang inside your tent can be great for getting into bed at night too.
  • Camping chair
    If you’re away for a few days, a lightweight camping chair can feel amazing at the end of a long day. Be careful taking them around the site with you, though, chairs in crowds can get dangerous.

Clothes

Bringing appropriate clothing can be a challenge as weather can be unpredictable. Try to bring layers so you can dress for hot days, wet days and cold nights.

  • Wellies
    An essential. If you’re caught in the mud you’ll need these without doubt.
  • Sturdy shoes
    If it’s not welly weather, sturdy shoes can offer the necessary support needed for being on your feet all day.
  • A warm jumper
    Even if the forecast is warm, nights will always be a little chilly. One jumper should be enough if you try to keep it clean.
  • Waterproof jacket
    Not only useful for rain, a waterproof jacket can be great for keeping out any cold winds too.
  • Changes of clothes for every day plus a couple of extras
    Don’t forget extras in case you get wet, muddy or spill your dinner down your top.
  • Clean clothes for the trip home
    Whether you’re driving or getting the coach, make sure you have some clean clothes stashed in a separate bag or in your boot. It will make the journey home much more pleasant!
  • Hat
    Keep the sun off your head in the day or keep your head warm on those cold nights.
  • Laundry bag
    You’ll thank us for this one. You don’t want to be searching through all your t-shirts for a clean one a few days in.
  • Warm socks
    For those cold nights.
  • A day bag
    A smaller bag for you to carry around with you in the day. You’ll need enough room for money, your phone, a bottle of water and any other drinks.

Toiletries

Staying clean at a festival can be challenging so make sure you bring along some toiletries to help.

 

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
    Bring a small bag for these so they don’t inadvertently get covered in mud!
  • Medication
    Don’t forget to bring any medication you might need while you’re away.
  • Deodorant
    Whether it’s hot or not, if you’re going into crowds you’re going to need it.
  • Dry shampoo
    It can work wonders for your hair when it’s been a few days without a wash.
  •  
  • Anti-bacterial hand gel
    This will usually be provided by festival toilets but it’s always worth bringing your own.
  • First aid essentials
    Bring along some essentials like plasters, disinfectant wipes, insect repellent and bite cream. You might also want to bring along some pain killers or anti-inflammatories to treat any headaches or minor injuries. Don’t forget to bring along details of how to contact the festival’s medical team too, just in case of an emergency.

Technology

Some of us use festivals as an excuse to abandon technology for a weekend, but if you’re looking to meet up with friends you’ll need some method of communication.

  • Phone
    If you don’t trust yourself to keep hold of your phone, invest in a cheap pay as you go handset with your friends’ numbers saved. You won’t have to worry too much if you lose it and the battery should last longer too!
  • Charger pack
    Even if you switch your phone off at night and use power-saver mode, a charger pack can be a lifesaver to avoid long phone charging queues.
