Between dancing and wondering around the festival grounds you’ll want to keep yourself refreshed. Especially, if there’s long ques for the showers.

  • Baby wipes
  • Dry Shampoo
  • Tooth brush, toothpaste and mouthwash
  • Make-up wipes

  • Toilet Paper
  • Condoms
  • Ear Plugs
  • Olbas oil, put it under your nose before you enter the bathrooms to mask the smell!

Keep Your Belongings Safe

Most festivals have storage lockers. We recommend that you put the following items in there when you are away from your tent:

  • Phone, try bringing an old phone so if it gets lost you won’t mind too much!
  • Car keys
  • Medication
  • Passport
  • Cash
  • Jewellery

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is very important especially if you’re out in the sun and/or drinking alcohol. If you do not stay hydrated you may end up missing your favourite band!

  • Reusable water bottle, refill this each time you pass a drinking point
  • Electrolytes such as dioralyte are a fast and effective rehydration treatment to help replace the loss of fluid and electrolytes

Pack the Essentials

There’s a fine line between over packing and not packing enough.

  • Tickets, this is very important as you will not be getting in without it!
  • Plan your outfits
  • Bring at least one hoodie, it’ll come in handy at night when its gets colder in the evening
  • Duct tape, perfect for fixing holes in tents and broken chairs. One roll will be plenty
  • Mobile battery pack, so you can always text mum back!
