Check out Boohoo, ASOS, Shein, Pretty Little Thing, and New Look, for a wide variety of fun outfits.
FootwearGet yourself a pair of shoes that are sure to last and will take your outfit to the next level. Whether you want to go classic with a pair of converse, simple with your favourite white trainers, keep your feet dry with a pair of trendy wellies, or look bold with a pair of Dr Martens, take a look at retailers such as Schuh, Converse, Hunter Boots, Under Armour, Dr Martens, or New Balance to find your preferred festival footwear.
AccessoriesAt a festival, accessories are a must! Where else can you cover yourself in body glitter, wear the biggest pair of statement earrings you own, or sport a blue and white tie-dye cowboy hat? From sunglasses and hats to belts and jewels for your hair, it’s your time to shine! Check out retailers such as Accessorize, ASOS, Boohoo, Shein, Ray Ban, Amazon, and Nasty Gal to add the finishing touches to your outfit.
BagsBags are ideal for holding all of your bits and pieces like your phone, cash, hand sanitiser, plasters, and more. But your bag doesn’t have to be plain or boring. If you fancy treating yourself to a holographic or chequered bumbag, a modern black across-body bag, or maybe a faux-leather mini backpack, take a look at ASOS, Boohoo, Accessorize, New Look, and Amazon for all the goods!
AccommodationAn important thing to consider is where you’re going to sleep. A staple for all festivals is a tent, along with a sleeping bag and some blankets to keep you warm. Camping chairs are also brilliant if you want somewhere to sit and trust me, you’ll appreciate it if the grass is wet. Take a look at Go Outdoors, Mountain Warehouse, Amazon, Argos, Wilko, Tesco, and ASDA for affordable supplies.
ExtrasFeel like you might be forgetting something? We’ve made a note of any extras you might like to take with you to your upcoming festival. Be prepared no matter the weather with suncream, a raincoat, and a reusable water bottle. Plasters are always a good idea and will save the day if you get a blister. Make sure to pack some things to help you feel fresh. Dry shampoo, face wipes, hand sanitiser and tissues will be your best friends. Find all of these things at retailers such as Boots, Lloyds Pharmacy, Mountain Warehouse, Tesco, and Sainsbury’s.
Festival Season Consumer Advice
If you want to get the most out of your upcoming festival, make sure to travel light. When buying a tent, go for one on the smaller side so it is easier to carry. Buy cheaper items that you won’t be heartbroken if you lose - a festival can be hectic and you can’t always keep track of your belongings.
Only pack the essentials. The more you pack, the more likely you are of losing something. Try not to pack your most expensive moisturiser or your designer wallet, in case it disappears.
Scope out your nearest supermarket once you’re at the festival so you know where you can go to stock up on any essentials. This is also a great way to help you travel light - you will probably be able to buy any extras from nearby shops (although bear in mind supermarkets might be crowded because other people might have the same idea).
Lastly, when it comes to travelling, make sure you check what your most affordable options are. With apps like Trainline, you might be able to get the same journey for a lower price when you split the journey into separate, smaller trips.
