How to Make the Most out of a Festival

Summer is around the corner, at least for those who don’t live in the UK. All jokes about British Weather aside, the emergence of sunshine can only mean one thing – Festival season!

Whether you are heading to Wireless or Glastonbury here are

5 tips to ensure you enjoy a Festival

  1. Be Fashionable But Practical

    Being comfortable in your attire is imperative for your enjoyment.

    Out of ideas? Not to worry, we have a full style guide for you here for your inspiration.
    You’re going to be on your feet pretty much all day. Comfortable shoes are MANDATORY.

    Do not, I repeat, DO NOT wear trainers that you mind getting dirty. They are most likely to come back ruined. Wellies/walking boots are your best allies! Be sure to remember wellies socks to avoid blisters.

  2. Mingle


    This can be a little daunting at first, but Festivals are some of the best places to meet like-minded people. The people you come across are likely to have very similar interests if not musical tastes to you. Who knows you might make a new friend!

  3. Stay hydrated

    While there will of course be a seemingly endless fountain of alcohol, it’s important to remember to drink water.

    It’s incredibly easy to become dehydrated when you are spending a lot of time in the sun. In the interest of your health and safety ensure that you have a bottle of water on you at all times.

  4. Arrive early

    Don’t be the person that arrives late and spends hours wandering in the dark looking for a spot to pitch their tent in. Try getting there in the early morning, allowing you to find a nice, non-muddy spot hopefully close to the stage and away from the loos.

  5. Take Snaps

    You know the saying: a picture says a thousand words. Be sure to capture your favourite moments on camera.

    If you are worried about phone damage bring a disposable camera with flash so you can capture the best of both the day and the night.

  1. Agreed on all points! Staying hydrated is so necessary; it can really make or break a trip. I remember going dehydrated because I underestimated water and while the day went pretty well, the ngiht was a nightmare because my skin felt bad and my body was overall, just so tired. Can’t emphasize enough on reaching early and grabbing the spots. No matter how much we think others aren’t as smart, those spots are easily taken early. And of course, photographs are the best thing about any trip <3
