Anyone else think Coachella looked a bit, well, naff? We get it, they have a great lineup, you’re guaranteed to spot at least 3 celebs an hour, and having a guaranteed golden hour does make the majority of pictures bang. However, with the news that there are dedicated ‘drinking areas’ that you can enjoy your tinnies in and the ever-present threat of the $100 Uber ride looming at the start and end of each day, we can’t help but think ahead to the upcoming glory days of UK festivals.
Although rain is all but inevitable, there’s nothing quite like pitching up a tent with your mates, seeing your favourite acts, and (reluctantly) forgoing a shower for a weekend. For weekends spent at the mercy of the weather, you don’t want to take your priciest fits – but that’s not to say you can’t look your best. We’re rounding up a few festival essentials that should cover all types of weather, all types of fun, and hopefully save you from some sticky situations out there. A festival survival guide, if you will.
