MUSIC FESTIVAL SHOPPING LIST - http://amzn.to/2qiGPEr

1. TAKE A BIGGER TENT THAN YOU’LL NEED
Always add a “person” to the size tent you’re taking to your festival. If there’s two of you, get a three-man tent.

2. DON’T PACK A PILLOW, PACK A PILLOW CASE!
You’ll struggle to fit a pillow into your rucksack, so why bother?

3. WRAP SOME GAFFER TAPE AROUND A WATER BOTTLE
You don’t need to pack a whole roll of the stuff, just enough in case of an unexpected rip/tear/deflation/tent pole snap.

4. TAKE A CRAP PHONE
Your iPhone 6 may be great, but but its a real battery whore.

5. INVEST IN A PHONE CHARGER
You don’t want to spend the majority of your weekend queuing with ten thousand people.

6. EAT ONE SOLID MEAL A DAY
Raving all day and raving all night takes up a lot of energy, so make sure you eat properly.

7. STASH SOME DRY CLOTHES IF YOU CAN
If you drive and you’re taking a car to the festival, leave a spare pair of jeans and socks in the car, so when you leave after days of torrential downpour, you'll be warm and snug.

8. GET MINIMAL WITH YOUR TOILETRIES
Anything you pack makes for extra weight to be carried or dragged from your house to the festival site, so travelling smartly can be a boon.

9. PACK A MALLET
The amount of times we’ve turned up at a festival and had to try and push our tent pegs into the hard, stony ground.

10. SEALABLE SANDWICH BAGS WILL SAVE YOUR STUFF
Put your phone, money and other valuables inside and seal!

11. INVEST IN WATER AND BANANAS
One morning you will be worse the wear from alcohol, so you need a cure.

12. KEEP A LAYER OF CLOTHING IN RESERVE
No matter how cold you are, there's always potential for it to get colder.

13. BE A CLEVER CAMPER
Try and get on site as early as you can. The earlier you are, the better spot you can bag. Don’t fret if you arrive later, though - just be prepared to walk further to your campsite.

14. KNOW YOUR PLACE
Remember where you’ve pitched your tent and its relation to the festival site.

15. HIDE SOME MONEY IN YOUR PHONE CASE
There are ATMs on site, but queuing for them is a huge waste of your weekend.

16. PLAN YOUR POCKETS
Keep your essential items in the same pockets, so despite how drunk you get you’ll always remember where your phone or wallet is.

17. WET WIPES ARE YOUR BATHROOM NOW
Forget trying to have a proper wash or queuing for a shower, stock up on LOTS of wet wipes and freshen yourself up that way.

18. KNOW YOUR TOILETS
The festival toilet is a tricky beast to negotiate, but do not fear it.

19. MIND THOSE STINGY HANDS
Contact lens wearer? Always wash your hands before putting your lenses in!

20. DON’T WEAR A ONESIE

21. CREATE YOUR OWN MEETING POINT
If you lose your friends and can’t contact them, work out a way of being spotted from a distance.

22. HEAD TORCHES ARE YOUR FRIEND
Because you can pretend you're Orbital in the dance tent and you'll be able to spot those pesky guy ropes on the way back to your tent in a pitch black field.

23. CREATE YOUR OWN “QUIET SPACE”
Your energy will flag if you don’t get any sleep, so invest in some ear plugs and an eye mask.

24. MAKE YOUR OWN SUPER LANTERN
Light up your camping space by strapping a regular head lamp to a large milk or water bottle.

25. NACHOS MAKE GREAT KINDLING FOR A CAMPFIRE
It’s true. Any nacho will do, look this guy will show you how.

26. REMEMBER THE PINCER MOVEMENT
Use the pincer movement to get nearer to the front of the crowd.

27. DON’T GO MUD SURFING
You may get your photo in the papers, but you'll be caked in dry shit for days.

28. LEAVE EARLY… OR LEAVE LATE
Make sure you plan your getaway!

29. MAKE FRIENDS
…have a pair of jump leads on you.

30. THIS ONE SIMPLE RULE WILL SAVE YOU ANY GRIEF:
Don’t take anything you’re not prepare to lose or damage in some way.
