Top 10 festival essentials

By kroberts 12 May 2017

With the end of the uni year in sight, it's time to get excited about this year's summer festivals! 

Whether you're hitting up Glastonbury, Leeds, Reading or somewhere else, here are the top ten essential items that YOU have chosen to get you through any UK festival...

  1. Wellies- Come rain or shine there is no doubt the ground will get muddy, so keep those Converse clean and invest in some wellies instead.



        2. Hand sanitizer/ baby wipes- It's inevitable that you'll get filthy and these are the                     quickest and easiest ways to keep relatively clean

        3. Booze- This is the less likely to be forgotten but just be sure to check before you go that              they allow you to bring your own.


         4.A bottle opener- Something so simple but always forgotten. Use a key ring to attach it to             a bag to avoid losing it.

         5.Loo roll- We don't think this needs any more explanation...            



        6.Speakers- After the music has ended for the night and you're not quite ready to go to bed,            have your own music in your tent to keep the party going.

        7.An old phone- No doubt you don't want to lose/break your fancy iPhone, so take an older             phone you don't have to worry about.


         8. Sun cream- The last thing you want is someone sitting on your shoulders the day after                the sun has decided to make an appearance- OUCH

         9. Anorak- There is nothing worse than walking (let alone dancing) in wet clothes, so for                 when the heavens open, have a waterproof handy.



            10. Protection - Not just from the sun but if you happen to get lucky one night...

So squeeze these ten items in your backpack to be sure you have an amazing festival experience!

Oh and don't forget your entry ticket, and maybe some ibuprofen for the headaches...from the music obviously
