Different tips for sunny festivals vs rainy festivals!

We were at Reading on Friday and we saw some pretty spectacular sun burn particularly on the boys so definitely remind him to use a lot of cream there was hardly any shade and the sun was relentless!

For rainy festivals wellies are essential put some bin liners down each leg so you can put your wellies in them and not muddy the tent or if you need to sit - its exhausting at rainy festivals when you cant sit anywhere so a bin liner comes in very handy!

Use the loos in the arena if you can camp site loos are awful but arena ones are cleaner.

Remember its a marathon not a sprint so dont peak too early and hope he has fun!

Lots of pairs of socks- nothing worse than if it's wet and you have no dry socks to put on!

Also festival food is very expensive so lots of snacks. Hand sanitizer is a must as often no soap or water in the loos after the first day.

Ive 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, its 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 hidden money belts which arent 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.
