Line-ups are starting to appear, tickets are selling out already and you are frantically booking time off work and arranging your finances to be able to go to all the festivals you have your eye on this year. Although every festival is different, there are certain things which I think are essential to know for any festival you go to. Have a look at my Festival Packing List and follow my simple Festival Essentials so you will be ready to rock it this festival season.
Getting a Glastonbury or Tomorrowland ticket seems to get more and more difficult every year. I sometimes think it would be easier to get a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! Read my Top 10 Tips below and hopefully, it will improve your chances of getting your hands on a Tomorrowland or Glastonbury ticket this year!
Summer festival season might be over, (I know it’s a really sad time) but there are plenty of festivals which kick-off in the winter. Your hair has probably endured all the lovely hot weather of this summer, and now has to be put through its paces in the cold and the wind of winter. Keeping your hair fresh, tidy and nourished on a normal day is difficult but at a festival, it’s certainly no easy feat.
Flower crowns are pretty much a festival staple these days, coming in all sorts of styles, colours, and sizes with some even lighting up! Buying them ready-made at a festival or even online can cost a fortune, but with a little creative power and a few basic materials, they can be made really, really easily!
Last year Joss and I managed to get our hands on a second hand, 5-berth, Sprite Major caravan and since then have spent our weekends trying to get it ready for its first outing in a few weeks.
Over the May bank holiday, I kicked off the festival season with a bang (plus a lot of glitter and paint) and went to the fabulous Hogsozzle!
Hogsozzle is an intimate, smaller scale festival but what it lacks in attendee numbers it makes up for in personality, individuality, and creativity. This 3-day festival, nestled in the Hertfordshire countryside was amazing. There were sequins, feathers, fur, fancy dress and enough paint to rival a Dulux warehouse – it all made for a fantastic festival.
