Megs done Leeds Festival a couple of times Louise and she's like me likes her home comforts so stopped in a hotel lol. She took ponchos (cos whilst it's nice this weekend it might not be next weekend... When she went it did lash it down so loads of people were wearing em. A bum bag to keep her essentials in and handy and safe. Dry shampoo and wipes I'd say are good. Footwear something comfy but not his best that's why I think wellies are so popular, the hotel Meg stayed in was that full of festival goers they had a designated area for all the grubby wellies to be left. How longs he there, maybe a power bank for his phone?, hope he has a great time x

My dd is at Leeds festival now. Shes having a great time although getting little sleep! He needs snacks/water, wet wipes, deodorant, antibacterial gel and teeth brushing equipment. Plus power banks, dd had 4 and they have now been used up.

The main thing he needs is to look after his money! My dd had her bag stolen on Friday night. She had a bumbag across her front and when she was in a mosh pit it was unclipped or cut off. She didnt notice as thats how the thieves work. These people must make a mint because they know people keep the money on them rather than in their tents. 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.

He will have a fab time but it is roughing it as the toilets can get grim. 🙈

My dd was at the front at The 1975 stage last night and is seeing Billie Eilish and post malone tonight! Shes a proper music lover. 😃

I think Ive had the equivalent of 2 nights sleep in the last 4 nights myself... Im knackered!

Ponchos is a really good tip thanks, he doesnt have wellies and cant imagine he would wear them but will try suggest that...

Have heard of a company called Candy Charge, they are offering power banks for 6 a day at the festival which sounds like a good idea.

The website mentions lockers. Might be a really good idea! Am not too worried about his hygiene as I know he wont bother either!

Top tip never leave anything of value (especially money) in your tent.
There have been a few threads over the last couple of months, this one has some good advice https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/sho...light=Festival
