Festival Packing and Camping Essentials

Friends, we're living through an unprecedented heatwave. As temperatures rise we are reminded of the importance of respecting the planet, ourselves and each other.

We thought today would be a good time to remind you of the tips that all you expert festival goers gave us about packing for Chapter One with respect for ourselves in mind. Our full packing list can be found here.

  1. It’s never too early to start packing.

  3. Suncream, waterproofs and drink lots of water.
  4. Cheese strings for snacks!

  7. Foil blanket to keep that sun off.
  8. If you can leave it at home, leave it at home.
  9. Whats3Words your tent.
  10. Take bin liners to keep the camp tidy and your clothes dry.
  11. Make sure you eat a decent meal and drink plenty of water everyday.
