Whilst the early May summer sunshine brings brighter days, warmer evenings and lush green landscapes to our every day, we’re most excited about the start of festival season. At the first sight of sun and in true British fashion, we’re all ready to start donning our flip-flips, shorts and not nearly enough factor 50 (and sunglasses indoors, if you’re as cool as Bert from Accounting). Although we’re pretty well prepared at serving up some barbecued burgers and a jug of Pimms at a weekend garden party, we’re less prepared at surviving our first festival (or second, or third for that matter).
If you’re just as baffled at the thought of packing your two-man tent down in to a public transport-sized bag, you’re not sure where to plug your straighteners in and you can’t work out how you’ll ever find your friends at an already sold out (and therefore packed) Glastonbury festival, you’ve come to the right place. If, however, you’re Bear Grylls, ex-military or a serial Glamper, you can probably just click off this page and get back to the great outdoors.
