Top 15 Festival Essentials

My Top 15 Festival Essentials!

Hey Guys,

So with Festival season underway, I have put together a list of my 15 Festival "Must-Have" items! I hope this helps for all of you who may be packing to head off for a weekend of music, fun and dancing! Some of these may sound pretty standard, some may surprise you!

1. Dry Shampoo

A beauty must have for a weekend of camping at a music festival! Give yourself a little refresh before you sleep or first thing in the morning. This TRESemme Instant Refresh Smells really good! 

2. Portable Phone Charger

I've got two of these bad boys from Tiger! A must have for Bloggers while away in the countryside! It will save you having to leave your phone at a charging tent. Just leave your portable charger instead! They are around £5 and come in a choice of colours. 

3. Water

Water is so important to stay fit and healthy at a festival. No doubt you will be doing a lot of walking, dancing and drinking ;) Water will help you stay refreshed! 

4. Face/body Wipes

I think this is in my top 3 must-haves at a festival! Baby Wipes are a god send when it comes to feeling clean at a festival. Pack a nice big pack (or two) and thank me later! These Simple wipes are great for taking off all that glitter and gunk at the end of the day. 

5. Hair Accessories

A festival look wouldn't be complete without a flower crown! Check out most high street shops arounf summer time for a great selection. How about adding feathers or metal chains for a unique vibe?

6. Glitter Make Up 

I feel like festivals, carnival and fancy dress nights are the only time you can get away with crazy glitter make up! Make the most of it!

7. Bright Lipstick

Bright pinks, oranges, blues, purples, reds...It's all a must-do for festivals looks! Check out Illamasqua for crazy lipstick shades!

8. Wellies/Waterproof boots

It is always guaranteed to rain at a British Music fest. Why sky, why?? Never mind, because we're totally prepared with a fab pair of the hottest rain boots! 

9. Rain Mac

As I was saying... Rain. An anorak or rain mac will certainly be your staple item for a lot of the time!

10. Compact Mirror

A little mirror will help when applying make up in your tent. Make it compact so it's not likely to break whilst travelling. 

11. Battery-Powered Fairy Lights

I have been to a fair few festivals and I always pack some little fairly lights to make my tent cosy and give me a wide wash of light rather than a spotlight that you have to hold like a torch. Primark have some just like these for £2.50! Bargain!

12. Cash and safe storage

You have to be so careful with your valuables at festivals. A bum bag/fanny pack will prove super useful as it is hands-free and often has lots of pockets to keep your phone/ID/Money. The cherry on the cake is how pretty they can be! Loads of retailers are starting to stock the most fashionable fanny packs you've ever seen!  

13. Spray Deodorant

I am usually a roll-on deo kinda gal, but for festivals, I like to take a little travel-sized spray deodorant as well, just to feel that extra bit fresher! (It's also great for a quick spritz in those smelly portaloos!)

14. Booze (OVER 18's!)

Now, you have to check on the website of your festival and make sure they allow booze in! If they do, happy days! Don't take any glass or it will be confiscated! Those boxes of wine that come in bags are great! As well as cans. Some companies also do plastic bottles in the lead up to summer. Lidl and Aldi are great for cheap booze!

15. Food!

Don't get me wrong, festival food can be super yummy as a treat. But to avoid back to back meals of junk and pricey deals, bring some of your own food to get you through. Snack bars and cereal bars are great. As well as dried fruit, crackers, hummous and yogurt tubes. 

That's it guys! I hope I gave you some good ideas if you are heading off this summer. Let me know if you think I've missed anything or if you thought any of these were genius!
