Festival Fixes

Whether you’re looking forward to watching your favourite artist, trying out great food or giving new activities a go, there’s nothing quite like going to a festival. While rediscovering your tie dye top is a must, there are plenty of other essential festival fixes to include on your packing list.

From festival clothing and shoes to accessories and camping equipment, we’ve rounded up our favourite festival items to help you get ready for fun in the sun (and perhaps the rain too!).

All Day Dresses

If you want to dress to impress this festival season, then you’re in luck, as the events are an excellent opportunity to be bold. But, while you’ve probably got plenty of outfits you want to bring along, it’s worth taking a minimalist approach when it comes to packing. A heavy rucksack isn’t many people’s idea of a good time!

For an easy-breezy option that’s a whole outfit in itself, try a summer dress.

Channel boho style in a multi-coloured slip dress

Stand out from the crowd in a bright yellow maxi dress

Whether you want to embrace your boho side with a floaty floral maxi or opt for a stylish slip dress in a bright pattern, try picking something a little out of your comfort zone to help you get in the festival spirit.

Must-Have Festival
Footwear

When it comes to special occasions and holidays, it’s tempting to debut your brand new sandals. Even so, considering all the muddy fields and walking you’ll have to do at a festival, it’s best that your favourite flip-flops stay at home!

Prep for rainy days with a pair of wellies

Ensure all-day comfort with a pair of trainers

To tick off all bases and ensure your feet stay supported, comfy and dry while on the go, bring a pair of trainers and wellies. Preparing you for both rain and shine, this footwear combination is just the thing to see you through your festival endeavours.

Just remember to opt for dark colours that won’t show up the dirt!

All About The
Accessories

The tricky thing about festivals is that you have to be prepared for all that the British summertime might throw at you, be that sunny skies or torrential rain.

Our top tip for mastering the weather is to make the most of accessories. After all, having two separate wardrobes isn’t the most practical of plans. While what you prioritise depends on how much space you have, the basics include sun cream, sunglasses, hats, extra pairs of socks and raincoats.

But no matter the weather, you can also add some fun to your festival look with statement belts and scarves.

Reliable Camping
Equipment

Part of the excitement of attending a festival is being able to sleep outside. Even so, this perk does mean that you’ll need lots of durable camping equipment.

Although family holidays often mean larger tents and air mattresses, festivals are the perfect time to embrace a more relaxed set-up. With this in mind, we recommend opting for a two-person tent and a few handy roll mats.
