Festival Season Is Here!

Out in the middle of nowhere in a field full of people you don’t know - there’s something quite magical about festivals. The buzz of hearing your favourite bands, the community that is built with new friends; festivals are definitely a place where memories are made. With Glastonbury coming up this weekend, festival season is in full swing so it’s time to prepare for a weekend of madness.

Now, the British weather is very temperamental so it’s good to prepare for any situation. Here’s a checklist to help you remember all the important things:

Essentials:

- Festival Ticket

- ID

- Money (and something to keep it safe in)

- Phone (so you can keep in touch with friends or update your Instagram)

- Tent

- Sleeping Bag (check out this awesome The Who sleeping bag)

- Pillow/Mat/Inflatable Mattress (you want to be comfortable when sleeping otherwise you’ll really ache the next day!)

- Bin Bags (not only for rubbish, bin bags are great for sitting on if the ground is wet)

- Toilet Roll/Hand Sanitiser (portaloos are grim and always run out so carry some with you)

- Deodorant/Dry Shampoo (let’s be honest, you won’t shower for the whole weekend so at least spray yourself with something to give the illusion of being clean)

- Wet Wipes (these are great for cleaning yourself. It’s like a shower without the effort)

- Food/Drink (festival food is amazing but it does get pricey so always take some of your own food and drink for the campsite to fill up on to save a bit of money)

- Suncream (you don’t want your weekend ruined by painful sunburn, it’s no fun at all)

Clothing:

- Lightweight Raincoat (never know when it’s going to rain so get one that you can fold up and keep in your bag for emergencies)

- WELLIES (even if it’s meant to be glorious sunshine, it will be just your luck that the heavens will open and you’ll be wading through mud)

- Sunglasses (not only do they look cool, it will stop you squinting whilst trying to watch your favourite bands- check out our awesome Jack Daniels sunglasses)

- A Jumper/Socks(although it may be really hot, it will be freezing at night so a jumper and thick socks will help warm you up when it comes to bedtime)

- Awesome Band Tees (don’t worry, we have you covered. Take a look below…)

So now you have your essentials packed, it’s time to think about style. You’re going to want to look amazing and what a better way to look great than wearing t-shirts from your favourite bands?! Here’s a selection of t-shirts from the bands of this year’s top festivals!
