    Tents in a field.

    Top tents

    Pick a tent bigger than you need – if there’s only 2 of you, go for a 3 man tent. This’ll give you room to store your bags or dry wet clothes.

    Sleeping bags

    A good airbed and sleeping bag can help make any festival field feel like 5-star luxury. A yoga or sleeping mat will be just as good and easier to carry.

    Save your energy and easily pull your kit along with a festival cart. You’ll thank us if the car park is miles away from your tent.

    Camping chairs

    They’re lightweight, foldable and a campsite must-have. Your feet (and bum) will be grateful after a day of walking, dancing and welly wearing.

    What to pack in your festival bag

    Festival goers have tried and tested what you need for a stress-free weekend. And the great thing is, once you get that festival bug, you use them again and again.

    Go to gadgets

    Power banks

    Make use of the summer sun with solar powered banks. Small enough for bags or pockets, keeping your phone and camera charged, anytime, anywhere.

    Cameras

    Looking for instant retro snaps? Or perhaps that front row feeling with a DSLR super-zoom. Browse our camera guides to find the right one for you.

    Phone lights.

    Phones

    Invest in a spare phone. It’ll have more space for all your Insta-worthy photos and you won’t be so devastated, if you break or lose it.

    Speakers

    Speakers

    Light, compact, waterproof and wireless. Portable speakers are a great way to keep the music going when you’re away from the main stages. 

    Your wardrobe and washbag

    Freshen up.

    Freshen up

    All the little things you need, to keep you fresh and clean. Who needs a bathroom anyway?

    Hiar and beauty.

    Hair and beauty

    Light, compact and handy products, helping you be mainstage ready at the drop of a mic.

    Strut your stuff.

    Strut your stuff

    Shorts and sunnies, or rain macs and wellies. Be prepared for any unpredictable weather.

    Road trip kit

    Your weekend begins the minute you load the car, start the engine and turn up the tunes. To make sure you get there and back again, check your car has all it needs.

    Festival tips

    Group with festival tags.

    Turn up early

    It’s going to be busy. Give yourself extra time to enjoy your road trip, beat the traffic and any security queues. You’ll also have a better chance to get that prime camping spot.

      The best spot

      Be practical. You’ll want to be near the loos, but not too close you can smell them. Avoid paths (and noisy commuters) and aim for a landmark, or create a unique flag, to easily find your way back.

        Keeping valuables safe

        Avoid locking your tent so it doesn't look like something valuable's inside. When out and about, keep your essentials with you in secure pockets or bags.

        Colourful water bottles.

        Stay hydrated

        Keep your fluid intake topped up, especially with all the dancing you’ll be doing. Save some pennies and fill up your own water bottle from the free water taps.
