Despite the festoon lights and flashing spotlights on stage, you might find yourself in the dark at some point. It might be handy to have a torch or two packed just in case.
5. Portable chargers
To save waiting around at a charging point, bring a portable charger to carry around in your bum bag or keep in your tent.
6. Don't bring valuables
Avoid bringing anything that you don't want to be lost or stolen. It's unlikely to happen if you look after your things, but it's better to be safe than sorry!
7. Sensible clothing
You never know what the British weather will throw at you, but it's a good idea to be prepared for anything…
8. Wet clothing bag
If it's rain that is forecast, a leak-proof place for wet things is a great idea.
Kids and adults alike, we all get hungry. Bring a few durable snacks with you to the festival to keep everyone happy!
10. Wet wipes and hand sanitizers
Last but by no means least. Festivals can be a messy place, so keep on top of the mud and stray glitter whilst you camp!
