Top 10 Festival Must-Haves

It is that time of year, Glastonbury is finally here again! Sadly I won’t be there to join the festivities as I get my act together and purchase a ticket in time however I will be tuning in to all the coverage. I can’t wait to see Neil Young and my favourite Britpop boys Blur.

However I have compiled a top ten list of festival essentials for all of you going to Glasto or any other festival this summer:

  1. Bright Nail Varnish preferable in bright orange or yellow. For the perfect shade of canary yellow try Nails Inc’s ‘Carnaby Street’ – easy to apply, chip resistant and the colour of the summer
  2. Dry hair wash – the perfect solution to the non existent shower problem
  3. Fedora – keep off the sun, rain and look effortlessly stylish in the meantime
  4. Cut-off denim shorts – the epitome of festival chic
  5. Over-sized sunglasses – the bigger the better, channel Jackie O, coloured frames are always a favourite
  6. Jewellery – pile it on heavily for bohemian chic
  7. Lip gloss – work bright pinks and reds
  8. Wellies – a given for the British elements
  9. Dry hand wash – essential for all festivals
  10. Berocca – energy tablets to ensure you don’t miss a thing

What are your festival essentials?


  1. Oh I have to agree, dry shampoo is a life saver but me and my friends try and wash each others hair too. I would not go to a festival without my hand's a necessity!! I haven't been to a festival in years though.

  2. dry shampoo, dry shampoo, dry shampoo, and your own rolls of toilet paper!!!

    A perfect must-have list for the season of festivals. The dry shampoo sounds interesting, although I'm sure it works wonders. I never go to a festival without my fedora and big sunglasses - they're a must!

  4. I suggest Immodium! Prevention is better than cure;-)
