Soap and Hygiene
SwimwearObviously a festival isn’t a holiday, and sadly there’s no relaxing swimming pool or jacuzzi, but it’s best to pack a swimsuit if you’re planning on getting a shower, just incase! Try a tankini to keep yourself covered with no restrictions for washing, or just simply swim shorts for men.
Other soapy essentials:
- Baby wipes
- Makeup wipes
- Deodorant, perfume/aftershave
- Dry shampoo
- Air freshener
- Sun cream
- Toilet roll
- Hair brush and bobbles
- Bug spray
StoveTo avoid the costs of food on site, take along loads of tinned food such a beans or soup so you can cook it on your very own portable gas stove - remember to pack extras as well, a pan and a tin opener are crucial!
SnacksPacking a few snacks is important for keeping your energy up, so make sure to take along a few treats like biscuits, bread, cakes or breakfast bars - pack them in a food protector container to make sure they stay fresh and away from bugs!
AlcoholLast but not least, pack as much alcohol as you can carry! Booze is undoubtedly one of the most important ingredients of a successful festival, so make sure you don’t get stung by the sky high prices of beer on site. However, keep in mind that you’re not allowed glass bottles on site, so empty your spirits into plastic bottles before you leave and opt for cans of beer and cider instead.
