7 simple hacks to improve your music festival experience

first_img Source: Imgur5. Comfort is kingAir mattresses are a well-known weapon to seasoned, battle-scarred festival goers. But what about… floor tiles? Bear with us. Basically, foam floor tiles are ideal as a boost to your ground sheet.Seems like effort, agreed, but come back to us after three nights and tell us it doesn’t make a big difference.

Well, have you ever done the walk of absolute shame to the toilet area in front of hooting, hollering, jeering fellow campers? Just bring the discreet pocket tissues.TRUST US. Source: Flickr/Brian7. Wrap it upGet a micro-fibre blanket. They’re absorbent (hey, just in case), lightweight, warm and also can be thrown over your tent to keep out the rays and keep it cool.

Forget the standard tips and tricks, here’s the cheat sheet that’ll ensure you stay one (muddy) step ahead of the horde.1. Six green bottles, standing on the wallBring extra normal-sized bottle caps (off water bottles and the like). A lot of food concession places at festivals will remove caps before they give you a drink – not handy if you want to screw it back on and move around or keep it for later. Keep your own stash.

Breathe deep. And DON’T LOOK DOWN. SCREAAAAMMM Source: whiper3. Plug in babyEar plugs at festivals perform two functions – they’ll help you sleep while some eejits are careening around the campsite at night, and also protect your ears from the loud music during the day. As essential as baby wipes and hand sanitiser, but oft forgotten. Cheers ears. Source: imgarcade4. Hands free kitThe petition to bring back bum bags (#BRINGBACKBUMBAGS) starts here. Seriously, though, a money belt or “fanny pack” is deadly for festivals. Shove in your cash, phone, valuables, hand sanitiser and packet of tissues. You won’t lose a thing and your arms are free to wave around the air, like you just don’t care.last_img read more
