BEST FESTIVAL CAMP HACKS
Here are our tips for making the most out of those essential festival items and tips for best getting through the festival madness.
1. Stick a flag in the ground so that you can find your tent easily:
Don’t think for a second that we’re saying you should try to sneak in a piece of scaffolding and a ten metre squared Danish flag. But, a spare tent pole or chord and an unconventional t-shirt/pair of stars and stripes leggings can ensure that that when your phone (inevitably) runs out of batteries, you won’t be left high and dry.
2. Be strategic about tent placement:
Just make sure you get a spot off the path (so drunk people won’t make your weekend a living hell), that you can see the designated toilet areas from your (Easy Camp *hint*) tent and that the prospect of walking to the main stages doesn’t feel like you’re about to take on Mount Everest. Then, you’ll be gravy.
3. A roll of bin bags has many uses:
Maybe not the sexiest hack we’ll ever give you, but definitely on of the most useful. Emergency ponchos, protecting your stuff from rain and mud and of course, packing your rubbish up when it's time to leave - all depressingly common problems for the European festival goer. Seriously, just take as many bin bags as you can find space for, you will find your own uses for them.
