The Festival Essentials Edit

So you're going to a festival. But what to take? We've got the best buys and hacks to let you focus on the fun.

Aren't you a bit late?

Pull on the wellies, we're knee deep in festival season. For weeks now you've been jealously watching glittered backpackers pile onto off-peak Friday trains. But soon it's your turn. You probably ought to be prepared by now. But we get it – you've been busy.

To help out, we’ve put together a list of ultimate festival essentials for trouble-free frolicking. Because as we all know, it’s nice to have fun, but even better to have safe fun.

Now, do you need every item in this edit? No. Well, probably not. Why not wear those heart-shaped polycarbonate sunglasses one last time. Shove them in the bumbag you already own. And as for those wellies - well can you even remember rain?

But how does a portable shower sound to you? What about a bluetooth speaker with enough battery life to charge your other devices? With a couple of choice items to complete your festival kit, you'll be the life of the party.
