Iíve only ever done one festival myself, so just a couple of tips:

WATER! There are usually taps at the campsites but these can often have very long queues. Also when at the stages, itís often difficult to leave to go get a drink and come back depending on how close to the front you are. We were very close to the front with no shade, blazing hot sun. Security ended up passing out water to people it was so hot.

We kept all our cash in our bras, so might be a bit difficult for your son! You can get ďhiddenĒ money belts which arenít very cool but will keep his money safe. Festivals usually have ATMs but very long queues and often run out of cash half way through the day.

Camping chairs! This will save a soggy bum if the weather turns

Hope he has a great time

A refillable water bottle or pouch will be handy as there are free water stations all over

Money belt for cash to go under clothing. Bum bag for everything else to be carried. Water. Ibuprofen. Baby wipes. Toothbrush and mini toothpaste. Wet loo paper wipes. Snacks. Hand sanitiser. Large plastic sheet to sit on. As many cheap phone power banks as they can carry. A torch. I always sent mine with a huge stack of rolls/apples/ crisps/sausage rolls/cereal bars in a cheap cool bag.

My daughter has been to her first festival today at Leeds Fest. Just for the day but that was enough for me, especially when I read the earlier post about the bumbag being stolen. I never thought about that happening. Sheís just texted to say she has been picked up so I can relax and go to bed now. Sheís sleeping at a friends relative near the site so I wont hear how she got on until tomorrow. At least she wonít have any muddy clothes as Iíd expected as itís been boiling today.

So it is very important that he spreads his money out. ie some in tent some in pocket/bag some in back of phone. She had about £110 stolen. We had to get some more to her as it was all she had. Luckily she had her phone in her hand

So sad that these things happen, my dad always told me to keep a few notes in your trainers at things like this!

Hopefully everyone is having a grand weekend anyway! Weather looks good again today! X
