Useful Checklists: Our Guide to your Festival Essentials

The time has come for the first festivals of the year, and like each summer, thousands of us will gather to listen to the music, dance and simply embrace festival experience. Attending a festival requires a lot of organisation especially when you want to avoid spending a lot of money on things you forgot to pack. This year you will have no excuse: we’ve made a useful checklist of all the essentials you might need!

Sleeping Essentials

First, the sleeping essentials, because even if you’re planning to party till morning, you will still need some rest and a certain level of comfort to sleep. This includes:

  • Tent 
  • Sleeping bagView Burts Bees Shampoo
  • Sleeping mat
  •  Pillow
  • Some warm and comfy PJ’s to sleep in

Hygiene Essentials

You may not be able to have a proper shower during your festival, but with the following products you can live without having shower and more importantly tolerate going to the shared toilets: 
Hand sanitizer
• Toilet roll and/or tissues
• Wet wipes/dry shampoo when there’s no shower
• Travel sized toothpaste/deodorant/soap/shampoo

But whatever you do – do not forget the hand sanitizer and toilet roll!

Outdoor Essentials

During your festival, whether it’s sunny or rainy, the first thing you need is to be comfortable in what you’re wearing. You also need to take care of yourself and be prepared in case of an emergency so make sure you take:First Aid Kit• Comfortable clothes
Sunscreen, sunglasses and hat
• Raincoat/waterproofs
First aid kit

Don’t forget to take a fully-charged mobile with you and also a back-up battery if you have one. It will be really useful if you need to call someone or to find info quickly.
Our final piece of advice if you’re going to a festival, especially if you’re going there with a car or if you have extra space in your bag, is to bring your own food. It will save you a lot of money as at festival food can be super expensive (and often pretty poor)!
