The Ultimate Festival Survival Guide

Festival season is upon us and while we all love a good boogy when the sun is shining, when the heavens open, surviving in a tent with just your festival essentials is not always the easiest!  So we have put our heads together and come up with our five top tips for surviving festivals this year. 

RULE NUMBER ONE: Pack light!

If you are anything like us, ‘pack’ and ‘light’ are two words that are not to be used in the same sentence.  However, after years of lugging huge backpacks around festivals, experience has taught to cut down to your absolute essentials when packing.  Think about how you can work ten key items to make several looks.  Our latest BoohooTV shows how to do just this, mixing and matching key items into different looks! Don’t forget, a maxi dresses are not festival-friendly - they might be perfect in the sun but when the mud kicks they are not so chic!

RULE NUMBER TWO: Waterproof everything

Wellies are an essential and don’t forget you will be walking a long way so pack multiple pairs of socks. Rain ponchos are a must and don’t forget you will need layers for cool evenings so pack a jumper.  Once you have experienced a wash out at a festival, you will understand the importance of our next top tip: waterproof your underwear!  That is, place your underwear in a waterproof bag and you will be laughing when you get a tent leak.
