Festival Essentials: 10 Vital Items That Can Save Your Big Weekend

10 Festival Essentials

We've compiled a list of the top 10 festival essentials, from gaffer tape to headlamps, these are the items that can save your big weekend

The 2017 festival season is due to kick off soon with the mighty Glastonbury only weeks away. The excitement slowly builds as travel arrangements are organised and preparations started. So what better time to compile our list of the top 10 festival essentials?

Now we’re not listing the common sense must haves here such as ticket, money, warm clothes, towel etc. Those are far too obvious.

Instead we compiled this list based  on hard worn experience of being at a festival and looking around and saying: “I wish I had brought one of those with me.”

Some of these items are relatively expensive, such as the festival trolley, while others like gaffer tape cost just a couple of quid. But all of them could prove essential over the coming festival season, so follow our advice and be prepared for everything the big weekends can throw at you. It’s going to be a great summer…
