Festival Survival Guide - Packing Checklist

Are you heading to a festival this summer? 
With the UK enjoying glorious sunshine (no... seriously...this is happening...) I've got you covered for your festival packing with this festival survival guide. Whether you're looking for the best festival tents or ways to keep fresh and clean while you're away check out my essential guide below:

Did you know that tents are the most abandoned items at festivals? Let's face it most people buy cheap and then don't want to mess with the fiddly thing trying to pack it away again. What you need is a festival friendly tent like a Eurohike tent*
Blue Eurohike Festival tent

I've been testing this Eurohike Cairns DLX 2 man tent, it's compact and rolls back into a neat little bag but it's also really spacious inside with quite a large porch and sleeping area making it a fab addition to any festival goers supplies as you can all gather round. Its super simple to put up too with only a 3 pole construction. This one's currently on offer at only £36 too, an absolute steal

If even that's too much fuss there's a huge range of tents* from pop up to inflatable ones to bigger berth if you're heading away with a big group available at both Blacks and Millets

Deal with this one now... you will not get the best nights sleep you've ever had in your life. Unless you're glamping you're sleeping in a tent in the middle of a field, sugar coat that however you want. BUT a good quality sleeping bag can seriously alter your festival experience, it can change a really unsettled sleep to quite a cosy one
This Berghaus* transition sleeping bag is honestly super comfortable it's a mummy style and has a double layer hollow fibre fill to keep you toasty warm (we're in England... the sun will go away eventually!) on offer at £24 you can essentially get a really good quality tent and sleeping bag for only £60!

Not your thing? There's a whole range of airbeds, camping beds and Berghaus sleeping bags* available on both Blacks and Millets

  • Wellies - a good waterproof and mud proof pair
  • Rain Mac / Poncho - just in case
  • Durable back pack - something big enough for your sleeping bag and tent
  • Quick drying legwear - leggings are your friend, avoid denim and jeans
  • Spare socks and underwear - nobody likes soggy socks

  • Portable Charger - in this switched on world you're bound to need this
  • Camera / Go Pro - Don't waste your phone battery
  • Torch - A stronger more powerful one than your phone's torch
  • Bluetooth speaker - for when you're chilling at your tent
  • Phone - Because let's face it you'll be sharing everything on social media too, I always make sure I have a good quality iPhone case* to protect it from my clumsiness of dropping it

  • Toilet Roll
  • Wet Wipes
  • Sun cream
  • Hand sanitiser 
  • Berocca (trust me)
  • Dry Shampoo
  • ID
  • Your ticket (yes I know obvious right?
What are your festival essentials?
