Whether it’s a little sprinkle or it’s a proper pissdown, either way you don’t to want look like a Kimmy K crying meme, So make sure you got yourself a hooded rain jacket. We like these K-Way pac-a-macs that you can stash in your denim shorts without you feeling like a heffa.
THE DINO TORCH
Why would you bring a stock standard torch when you can get this pocket-sized thang leading you back to your campsite?! Plus, it's a dinosaur. Do we really need to go on?
Wellies are a staple for every British festival, so you’ve got to be a nutter not to bring them. We’re going with trusty Hunters, because if they're good enough for the Queen, they're good enough for us. That and they're comfiest damn wellies we've ever stepped foot in.
A sturdy tent to keep you dry is exactly what you need. While you don’t want to fork out your entire week’s pay of nothing (or not that much), you do want a quality buy that isn't going to get struck by lightning and collapse on you.
THE FOLDING CHAIR
What's better than people watching? Yeah, that's what we thought – nothing. So grab your best shades and your BFFs (if you can find them) for a bit of pre-dap hottie finding. And when it begins to pelt down, Slytherin back into your tent with your new boo, hopefully. Our fingers are crossed for you.
THE INFLATABLE MATTRESS
A small-ish box containing a blow up mattress isn’t much to lug for a whole lot of comfort – noone wants to awake to a cold, damp butt. Just don’t forget a pump. Sweet dreams.
THE SLEEPING BAG
Although you probably won’t be doing much sleeping, you’ll definitely want to able to keep cozy when your legs just cannot dance anymore. This one will keep you all warm and fuzzy in temps as low as -6 degrees, but won’t give you the sweats if it’s a nice balmy night.
