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

Look (UK) - - LIFE -

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?
