I have to say it’s a pretty good checklist. Here are the 26 essentials for festival camping from A-Z according to Skiddle.com.
A – Alcohol: Make sure you find out how much alcohol is allowed to take in with you before you get there or risk them taken away by organizers.
B – Baby Wipes: For cleaning grime, dried mud and other stuff.
C – Camping Gear: Don’t forget the tent, sleeping bag, camping pillow, ground sheet, camping mattress, etc. Make sure your tent is bigger that what it’s meant for. If there are two of you, get a 3-person tent or better yet, a 4-person tent. You’ll appreciate the extra space. A cabin tent great would be great if you’re in a large group as long as there’s enough space on site.
D – Drinking Games: At least a deck of cards. Games are great for breaking the ice with your neighbours.
E – Entry Ticket: You don’t want to leave this one out.
F- Fancy Dress: Only if applicable.
G – Grub: Take your own food otherwise it’s going to be expensive. Bread, dried meat, dried fruit nuts, biscuits, Cheetos are great but if you want a hot meal take some instant noodles and/or backpacking food. Remember to take the camping stove. If disposable barbeque grills are allowed you can have one hell of a meal.
H – Hand Sanitizer: It’s important to keep your hygiene and avoid spreading diseases.
I – Ibuprofen: A remedy for many ailments.
J – Jumpers: In case it gets cold at night. A waterproof jacket wouldn’t hurt either.
K – King Size Blanket: Great for playing drinking games on.
L – Loo Roll: Always a good idea in case it’s in short supply.
M – Money: Don’t carry too much or too little and be sure to keep it safe. An excellent way to keep it safe is by keeping them in a flip-flop like the Reef Stash.
N – Night Light: a.k.a. flashlight. You need this to look for your tent at night.
O – Old Phone: Things get lost easily at a festival. Just to make sure that you don’t go crazy when you lose your mobile phone.
P- Plenty of Fags: For smokers, there’s a tendency to smoke when you see other people smoke.
Q – Quickies: This can mean two things. Condoms or portable camping toilets.
R – Rubbish Bags: R is also about respect. Respect others and keep your area clean.
S – Sun: Protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun. Remember to take sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. S is also for shower. You might want to consider taking a portable camping shower.
T – Toiletries: If you’re not in showers, at least brush your teeth.
U – Underwear: Pack plenty of spares. Wearing damp underwear is not good for you.
V – Vitamins: Optional but will help boost your immune system and possible help you cope with the ridiculous amount of alcohol you’ve been consuming.
W – Weather: Check the weather forecast or be ready for any weather condition. Take the windbreaker, wellies and waterproofs.
X – Xtra Chewing Gum: This will help with all the smoking and alcohol.
Y – Your Own Music: For the times when the band is not playing.
Z – Zzzs: Try to get some sleep whenever you can. You’ll feel much better.
