How to create a mini festival at home...

  • Have fun with face paints.
  • Dance the night away or cosy up in front of a firepit.

    Camping essentials

    Shop all

    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.

    Festival trolleys

    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

    Small, compact and lightweight. A must have essential that's easy to carry. It's the perfect seat to chill by your tent and rest your dancing feet.

      Festival packing list

      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.


      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.


      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.



      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

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

      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.
