7 Things We’ve Learned About Festivals
Summer is upon us. We’re excited. But if you’re a festival first-timer, here are a few lessons we’ve learnt from ravin’ it up in a field over the yearsé
1 the Perfect View Doesn’t Exist
No matter where you are and who you’re watching, the world’s tallest person will stand in front of you. It’s a fact of life. Just drink your drink and jump up for the good bits.
2 crowdsurfing is not a GOOD idea
It all starts as fun and games but not only is it painful, you can also lose your money,
phone, clothes, shoes, etc.
3 you will have to go it ALONE
At some point, you will lose everyone you know and you’ll be out of signal/ have no battery. It’s fine, you’ll just spend an hour partying with some strangers before regrouping.
4 DODGY tan Lines will happen
Sun and booze means potentially forgetting to slap sun cream on at the right time – and even if you do, a flower crown will always give you odd tan lines. Don’t even get us started on the ripped shorts ‘white bits’.
5 Dirt gets Everywhere 6 YOU’LL NEED MORE anti-bac GEL than EVER
Festival toilets are grim. There’s nothing anyone can do about it – even the fanciest of festivals can’t change that, so come prepared. Make sure you carry hand gel everywhere you go and do not wear your festival wristband on the wrong hand, if you know what we mean.
7 DESPITE ALL that…
You’re going to have the best weekend ever! Never mind the sweat, the stress of getting there and the tentpacking on the last day, it’s all 100 per cent worth it and you’ll make the most amazing (if muddy) memories. Sigh.
Hands up who loves a good festival?
