The essential festival packing checklist 

Published 18 August 2021
  • Tent, sleeping bag, roll mat and pillow – taking these four things should make sure you’re all set, sleep wise
  • Toilet roll – trust us
  • Reusable water bottle – some festivals have said they won’t be selling bottled water this year, so make sure you remember a bottle.
  • Some sort of light – your phone is fine, but be careful about battery usage.
  • Camping chair – you don’t want to be the one who has to sit in the mud. 
  • Wellies and sturdy shoes – be ready for lots of walking and standing. Wellies because it’s the UK and it makes sense.
  • Jumper and a waterproof – a certain cold exists at festivals that you’ll never experience anywhere else in the world, make sure you take a warmer and something to keep you dry.
  • Change of clothes plus extras
  • Hat
  • A day bag 
  • Phone
  • Charger pack 
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Dry shampoo and hairbrush
  • Baby wipes and face wipes
  • Sun cream 
  • Breakfast bars
  • Sweets and treats/Fruit
  • Kettle, tea bags and coffee – naturally 
  • Ticket – Speaking from experience, this isn’t fun to forget.
  • ID
  • Money – how else will you buy giant Yorkshire puddings?
  • Negative Covid Test – it’s best to check the information given from the festival in case you need to do a test before you go (some may be 24hr/72hrs before)
  • Covid Vaccination – some festivals may want to see if you have been vaccinated
  • Anti-bacterial hand gel
  • Mask 
We hope anyone going to a festival this year has an amazing and safe time.
