You can carry multiple portable chargers. Another option is pre-ordering then picking it up at the festival.

Dress Correctly

Dressing correctly for a festival involves towing the line between looking stylish and cool and also dressing in a practical and smart manner. Yes, you want to cover up with glow necklaces in bulk but you also need to pack that rain jacket and wellies.

Phone Charging

This can seem like no big deal, but when you book in advance, you end up saving a couple of pounds and pennies. If you grab the car park passes in advance, you can end up saving 10 pounds. You can add this to your drinks budget.

No matter how less stuff you decide to take with you to the festival – you will go with a bag to store your stuff and precious stuff. You will also have those things you think you need but don’t – like the t-shirt you have been saving for such an event.

It is a good idea to get a tent for an extra person. If you are sharing a tent between two people, then get a tent to house three people.

Tents

No one enjoys having their tent near the bogs. It can easily get whiffy when the wind starts to blow the wrong way, and all night people will keep climbing up the steps. Do you want to know the perfect place to have your tent? You should look for a spot that is off the path to avoid people crashing into your tent. Choosing a spot uphill is the best option if it is possible.

Making the tent recognizable

Whether you choose to buy a recognizable tent of you choose the DIY route, it is a good idea to make it easy to spot the tent from a distance. You can invite over your friends going to the festival so you can gather around and customize a flag. You should employ a little creativity, don’t just choose a boring flag like a pirate flag.

Campsite showers are okay – but they tend to have a long queue. If you choose to do it your own way, then you should go with biodegradable wipes. This way, you will be getting clean while saving the planet at the same time.

Want to know a good way of saving space when packing? Leave your pillow at home – it is going to take a lot of room and there is also the risk of getting the pillow soggy if you don’t carry it around the bad when en-route. The best solution is carrying a pillowcase then putting clothes that you are going to take to the festival inside the pillowcase. This will give you a place to rest your head.

Another important tip is keeping a clean pair of socks hidden. You will be happy when it is time to go home and your feet are toasty and clean.

Bin Bags

There are many different instances where bin bags are going to come in handy. They will ensure you don’t spoil the countryside with your rubbish. Bin bags are also very practical. You can use them when you don’t have a raincoat. If you don’t have wellies, you can use them in covering your footwear. You can also use them to cover a leak in your tent if there is any. There are many other ways a bin bag can help you.

There is hot weather in the area, and this is why there are many drinking water points across the Campsites and Arena. Carry a reusable bottle because you also need to think about the environment while keeping yourself hydrated.

Is the inside of your tent feeling like you are in a Sauna? The inside of a tent will leave you sweating, and this shows you are one with nature. Take with you’re a couple of emergency blankets then pack them at the bottom of the bag. You should also have a gaffer tape that you are going to use in sticking the blankets to the tent. This is going to reflect the sun, and this will make things a little cooler inside the tent.
