There's nothing we love more than a good list. A checklist, people, not a listicle.
And pre-festival packing can be a particularly stressful time – no better time for a list.
The ultimate camping festival checklist to be precise.
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
1. A fully charged phone and powerbank
Because if you don't update your
Snapchat story were you even at a festival? If you do run out of juice, you can buy portable power banks at this year's Electric Picnic from any of the Three charging
2. A reliable back-up blockia
Just in case all else fails.
Might seem a bit obvious but you'll be in trouble if you arrive without it. Age cards or driver licenses preferably. For the love of God, don't bring your passport.
4. A tent
Again, obvious. But necessary. Make sure it's waterproof too or you'll be building an ark to survive the festival.
And if you're super fancy bring your camper van.
5. A sleeping bag
Because a festival is a miserable, miserable place without one.
6. Plastic bags
Come in SO handy. Keep your stuff dry, or keep your wet clothes contained.
They will bow down and crown you the camping queen/king.
7. Changes of clothes
If you're a total fashionista this one doesn't apply because no doubt you've already five outfits packed and ready to go.
But if not, you need to get your life together my friend, clothes are key at any festival ever.
And glitter. Lots of glitter.
8. Plenty of socks
One thing you'll go through rakes of, is socks.
The fluffier, the better.
9. Enough wipes to last the weekend
Both baby wipes and make-up wipes are imperative for festival survival.
Wipe away that day old mascara and clean your pits convenience-style. No one should endure your BO when you're fist pumping in the crowd.
10. Oral hygiene necessities
Toothpaste, a toothbrush and mouthwash are N E C E S S I T I E S, people.
Keep that breath fresh 'n' minty.
11. Loo roll
Desperate times call for desperate measures – and no one should be without toilet roll in their time of need.
Avoid dodgy situations – bring your own.
12. A fanny pack
As cringe as these 'fashion statements' are, they are highly practical.
You can keep valuables on your person at all times.
13. A torch
Despite it being called Electric Picnic, it's actually pretty dark when the sun goes down.
So you're better off bringing a torch just in case.
14. A hoodie
You will not, and I repeat WILL NOT, survive a festival without a hoodie. End of.
15. Hand sanitiser
Literally do not come near me without at least a double hand sanitising during a festival.
