Camping at a festival is part of the fun, but you need the right gear and some basic knowledge to make the most of the experience. Here’s a look at how to get started so you’ll be prepared and won’t miss out on the entertainment:
Tips for Enjoying the Experience:
Festivals can draw thousands of people, so be prepared for traffic and long queues as you get close to the festival venue. Remember that everyone there for the same reason so take a deep breath and tell yourself “your journey is your destination”.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day. A backpack with a water reservoir or a waterbottle is a great way to stay hydrated. Shop our selection of water bottles and hydration reservoirs.
Be prepared for those sunny days. Bring along plenty of sunscreen and invest in sun-protective clothing, including a hat with a wide brim. Shop sunscreen
Using a portable toilet isn’t always great but it might be a reality at a festival. Bring along extra toilet paper, hand sanitizer and toilet seat covers to make the best of the situation. If you know the festival won’t have showers, consider bringing a portable solar shower that you can use at your camp. Shop portable showers.
Festivals generally have a happy vibe and people will go out of their way to help you, but unfortunately crime can occur. Use common sense, be aware of your surroundings and keep track of your friends.
Festivals have first-aid stations if you need one, but you’ll find you can treat many minor issues if you keep a kit in your car or at camp. Shop First Aid Kits
