It's that time of year again FESTIVAL TIME. We take a look at some of the dos and don't, so you have a great festival experience

Whether you’re pitching up for a whole weekend of festival fun or you’re just rocking up for the day, take a look at the following dos and don’ts and get ready for a summer to remember…

Money & Cards!

Do take cash & card, and be sure to keep small amounts of notes hidden in different places — if that tenner goes missing you’ll still have the rest of your stash to fall back on. Good plan!

With cards, you can buy a TOP up MasterCard and load it with money so you have a backup, plus you only spend the limit on your card Good thinking!

What you need to pack:

Do embrace festival trends, but don’t neglect the essentials. Pack a waterproof jacket and your favourite sunnies.

Since you’ll be spending most of your time bouncing around in a field, you can’t go wrong with a pair of comfy trainers.

Plus, you’ll be glad you left those flip-flops at home when you’re wading through squelching mud or tiptoeing your way to a portal at 3 am, not funny…

Hygiene at festivals.

Don’t forget your hand sanitiser, wet wipes, deodorant and dry shampoo. Unlimited access to running water is never a given on festival sites, so come prepared…

Go all out on the organisational front. Pack your own supply of toilet paper, preferably in a zip-lock bag to ensure it stays dry.

Forward Planning is a must!

Don’t try to be everywhere at once, it just doesn't work. Artist time/schedules are bound to clash at some point so some forward planning will most definitely pay off to provide that great festival experience…

Pick out a few of the acts that you REALLY want to see and make sure you get to their sets in all in good time.

Camping on-site — where?

Don’t forget where you pitched your tent. Bring a flag or mascot so you can spot your tent from a mile away.

Do some basic checks on your tent before you leave your home. Make sure it’s strong enough to withstand all kinds of weather and roomy enough to fit everyone inside comfortably, that's the ticket!


Don’t forget your ticket. Not only will security turn you away at the gates, but you’re NEVER going to live that story down, plan, plan and ENJOY that unforgettable festival experience!
