It's festival season. There are so many things you need for festivals which I class as essentials having been to quite a few. These are the things I have either taken in the past which I cannot be without at festivals or things that I have found I really needed and was gutted I didn't take with me! If you are a first time festival-goer, be prepared to get a bit dirty and pray it doesn't rain!
Foldable Water Bottle (99p) - These are great for having in your bag. There is always loads of places to get drinking water at festivals so take advantage on those hot days so you don't pass out! These are so handy to have folded up when you have finished a bottle and they won't take up too much space in your bag.
Lightweight Mac (£29); Its England.. there is a 90% chance it will rain. These fold up really small so will fit in your bag and won't make it heavy. Will be perfect for the evening too when it starts to get a little bit chilly. Primark has similar ones for around £9.
Cheap Sunglasses (£5); Don't take your nice and expensive sunglasses to a festival, they will either get broken or stolen. It is going to be right in the middle of summer so it might actually be sunny.. you never know with England!
Baby Wipes (£1.80); Trust me, your going to need these.
High SPF Lip Balm (£3.99); There is nothing worse than sunburnt lips, your going to be outside all day, hopefully enjoying the sun. The next day you will regret it if you don't use one! This one smells and tastes amazing too - bonus!
Hand Sanitizer (£1.99); Festivals are pretty dirty places lets be honest. Your going to need this. Make sure you have one this summer! These ones from Bath and Body Works smell amazing!
Portable Charger (£14.99); There is nothing worse than being at a festival and your phone being out of battery. These chargers are amazing, you can get 2.5 to 3 full charges out of this before it needs recharging! This will charge your cameras too so you can capture those memories.
Phone Pouch (£5); These look so handy for me. I hate taking a purse because I always feel like I am going to lose it so with will be perfect. I always have my phone in my hand so I can keep track of my cash and a card or two.
La Roche-Posay CC Cream With SPF 30 (£19.50); I love this stuff. It has enough SPF so that your not going to get burnt but it has amazing coverage. I have quite bad skin and this CC Cream makes my skin looks flawless. This is really long lasting too so extra great for festivals.
Wellies (£60); Every festival I have been to has been so muddy so wellies are going to be a must have. Especially if it is meant to rain all weekend!
