5 Festival Tips
I created this look in mind to wear at Creamfields this year however, working a festival vs being a punter are 2 completely different things… I thought I would be super organised and plan not just my outfits but other essentials to take with me but of course as anyone who works in a Marketing, Music or Events team will understand, the last month if not 3 months before any festival whether it be a day or in this case 4-day event is utter chaos. It’s one of those so-busy-forget-to-eat kind of times!
Thankfully a lovely email from Push Doctor* came through to my inbox for a festival survival kit – to help me win at the festival game. Push Doctor kindly provided me with a box filled with festival essentials such as hand sanitiser, sunscreen, dry shampoo, deodorant, first aid kit, etc and I honestly couldn’t be more thankful – one less thing for me to worry about in the midst of all the madness!
Whether you are a festival fresher or think you’re a festival veteran, here are a few tips that will make your festival life easier and things that you might not have thought of before.
- Make sure you have proof of ID (no photocopies and photos on your phone / camera does not count as a valid form of ID). There is nothing worse than getting to the front of the line and having to go home because you forgot your ID whilst your mates kick-off because you’re carrying the tent.
- Write down your mates phone numbers on a piece of paper, in case you lose your friends or your phone, because, do you know their numbers of by heart?
- Bring lots of hand sanitiser! This one from Push Doctor was amazing not only does it smell lovely, it has a little clip which I attached to my lanyard at all times.
- Have a non-denim outfit option. Wet denim is the worst ladies and gents not only is it heavy as hell but it’s definitely not going to dry quickly.
- Check the ‘What to bring / not to bring’ items list on the festival you are going to FAQ’s. There might be some things in there that you thought were fine to bring but they are classed as prohibited – for example, glass in any form. This could be in the form of a mirror; including a make-up palette. Leave the Naked palettes at home girls there will be plenty of mirrors on site in the pamper parlours inside of the festival grounds.
I hope you found these 5 tips useful and remember to stay safe and most importantly have fun!
