What to take to a festival

One of the best things about summer is the festivals. You have spent all night – maybe all day – trying to get tickets to Reading, Download, Glastonbury, or Wireless. Securing the tickets was challenging, but have you thought about what you are planning to take to the festival?

If you’re camping, you’ll need supplies for as many days as you’ll camp, plus some essentials and comforts to make your time more enjoyable and comfortable. 

Read our blog to find out what you need to make the most of your festival experience.

Bring quality camping gear

For multi-day festivals, having the right camping gear is essential for a comfortable stay. A sturdy tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad will provide you with shelter and insulation from the ground. If you’re going to be near your tent during the daytime, you can bring a foldable chair to sit and relax with friends and tent neighbours.

Make sure you’ve packed your powerbank (our FLEX Powerbanks’ batteries can be replaced) to keep your devices charged throughout the festival.

Dress for comfort

When it comes to festival fashion, comfort is key. Opt for lightweight, breathable clothing that allows you to move freely while dancing or exploring the grounds. Be sure to pack layers to accommodate changing weather conditions, including a waterproof jacket and sturdy footwear for traversing muddy festival grounds. Don't forget to accessorise with sunglasses, hats, and bandanas to protect yourself from the sun.

Make sure you have light at all times

In the realm of festival essentials, lights play a crucial role in enhancing both safety and ambience. Whether you're navigating through crowds after dark or illuminating your campsite, having reliable lighting is a must. Consider packing a selection of torches, lanterns, and string lights to brighten up your surroundings and keep the party going well into the night. It also helps to keep you safe amongst crowds of people you do not know.

Our collection of durable and versatile camping lanterns can illuminate your tent on dark nights, while the K6R Safety Rechargeable Key Ring provides a powerful, pocket-sized light and shrill alarm for emergency situations, helping you to stay safe.

Don’t neglect nutrition and hydration

Staying hydrated and nourished is vital for maintaining your energy levels throughout the festival. Pack a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated on the go, and stock up on electrolyte-rich drinks to replenish lost nutrients. 

Don't forget to pack plenty of high-energy snacks like nuts, dried fruit, and protein bars to keep hunger at bay during long days of dancing and adventure. 

Ensuring proper nutrition during a multi-day festival often takes a backseat amidst the excitement, but it's paramount to prioritise it while packing. Sustaining your energy levels is crucial for fully immersing yourself in the festival experience from start to finish. 

Bring your essentials

In the excitement of festival preparations, it's easy to overlook the importance of personal essentials. Be sure to pack sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun's rays, as well as insect repellent to ward off pesky bugs. Don't forget to bring along any necessary medications, toiletries, and first aid supplies to ensure you stay healthy and comfortable throughout the festivities.

Enjoy your festival without worrying

As you prepare for your next festival adventure, remember that the key to a memorable experience lies in careful planning and preparation. By packing the right gear, including camping essentials, comfortable clothing, reliable lights, hydration and nutrition supplies, and personal essentials, you'll be ready to embrace all the excitement and adventure that awaits. 

With our selection of high-quality lights, you can illuminate your journey and create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime. So pack your bags, gather your friends, and get ready for the festival experience of a lifetime!
