It is officially festival season! Our last blog on the best boutique festivals in the UK has got us excited for the summer. So we’ve pulled together all the essential festival gear you need. This way, all you need to worry about is creating amazing summer memories.
First of all, you need the right backpack to take all your festival kit with you. Our bags at Kovered perfectly combine style and function. The Tay Rollover gives you space to neatly keep all your belongings, as does the Tamar macpack with its two interior pockets. All of our bags are made from waterproof waxed canvas, so everything will stay protected while you party away.
Boutique Camping have the best range of lightweight bell tents that come in a range of designs. Rainbow, bright aztec prints, palm leaf, leopard print - there’s something for everyone. And, it means you’ll be able to spot your tent in a sea of others when you make your way back from the mainstage at night.
Lets face it, you may not want to spend loads on a sleeping bag when it’s likely to get covered in mud. However, you want to be warm enough so that you don’t freeze overnight. Milestone have a great budget sleeping bag that will still keep you snug enough to help you sleep through the late-night partiers.
The Therm-A-Rest Treo chair is tiny and lightweight, making it super portable to and around the festival site. You’ll be so smug when you can rest your feet between acts. Plus, it comes in a range of cool bright colours.
A festival staple for many, glitter can make a festival outfit - however it is horrible for the environment. Eco Glitter Fun have a great range of biodegradable vegan glitter that also comes in plastic free packaging. So you can shine on with a clear conscience.
Part of the fun of festivals is everyone looking (and smelling) and little worse for wear by the end of the weekend. But while the showers may not be great, you can still look after yourself. Check out our previous blog on plastic-free toiletries for everything you’ll need.
We all know festivals are all about the music, so why should the part stop when you’re back at your tent? The Braven 105 portable bluetooth speaker is small, but packs a sound punch. And, like all the best festival items, comes in a range of colours.
Unfortunately, UK festivals also means UK weather. Don’t worry though because Field Candy have you covered - literally. Their fun rain ponchos come in a range of designs from neon colours to a watermelon. Bound to brighten up any storm.
9. The power bank
You’ll want your phone to make sure you preserve all of those festival moments, as well as help you find your mates when you lose each other going to find the toilets. This power bank charger has a solar panel and will keep your phone charged all weekend.
10. The wellies
Last but not least, the absolute festival staple - comfortable but sturdy wellies. Keep it classic with a pair of Hunter’s in black.
