If you’re headed to a festival this summer, whether it’s a day long city affair or the full five-day extravaganza in a field, it pays to be prepared.
Believe us, there are essentials to pack in that bum bag or backpack that really can make or break your experience. Leave them out and you’ll spend your time wishing you’d put a little more thought into your festival packing.
While you can buy bits once you arrive, festival pop-ups quickly sell out of the popular stuff. Plus, those little stalls can be super expensive.
To make your season as enjoyable as possible, we’ve rounded up some of the handy must-haves seasoned festival goers wouldn’t go without, from ponchos to toothpaste pills – and the little lifesaver you’ll need for smashing through the hangover from hell.
It will all be worth it, we promise!
