What to pack for Wilderness Festival?

The Ultimate Packing List for Anyone Heading to Wilderness Festival Season 9.

Whichever of the 7 campsites you choose, Full Circle have you covered with our guide to packing for and camping at Wilderness.

If it’s the general camping that you’ve gone for, don’t panic, there is plenty of room at Wilderness, you won’t need to fight for your plot, we always recommend plotting your camp in a circle if you are with friends so that you have a central communal area. It’s be the swimming and boating lakes so fingers crossed for a warm weekend!

They’ve also got an accessible camping site, family camping, quiet camping if you value your sleep, live-in vehicle camping, pre-pitched meadow camping and boutique if you’re after a bit of luxury.

Something that they don’t have is a vast array of shops so pay attention so that you can take all you need with you for a fun and comfortable weekend.

Top 10 Packing Tips for Wilderness festival

  1. Make separate packing lists for tent equipment, food stuffs, clothes and toiletries

  2. A Full Circle Eco-friendly festival survival kit will take care of all your hygiene needs, with no rinse body wash and eco towel (running water not required) dry shampoo, deodorant, antibacterial hand gel (an absolute must), bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste and loo roll all in a hangable cotton jute bag to keep it off of the tent floor which could be muddy and wet in bad weather.

  3. Don’t forget the suncream, slap on a high factor and be safe in the sun.

  4. Try to borrow or buy a trolley to transport your bits from your car to the campsite and later on to carry children, blankets or booze around!

  5. Keep hydrated but please do not bring or buy plastic water bottles, take your reusable bottles and refill where you need them, we love Raw bottles for their sleek design and practicality. 

  6. If you plan to cook at camp, aim to do the majority of your camp cooking in the morning, breakfast is so easy on the camp stove or BBQ, think omelette and beans, bacon sarnies, sausage sarnies. The food tents are on another level so enjoy what’s to offer for the rest of the afternoon and evening within your budget. There’s a banqueting tent, street food, the chefs table, the field restaurant and more….mouth watering just thinking about it.

  7. Talking of budget, wine is great to take with you as you can top it up with ice and soda to save your pennies or if your more of a spirit person gin in a tin works just as well!

  8. When planning your outfits, make room for any eventuality that the British summertime can throw your way, layers to strip off or on are what’s needed and you’ll have a fantastic time. Bring wellies AND flipflops!

  9. Solar lighting for tents are a wonderful idea, helps you find the way in the dark and for those night time toilet trips a head lamp comes in ultra handy.

  10. Always pack more clothes than you’ll think you’ll need - if the Great British Summer catches up with us you’ll be grateful for the spares.

So, now just to enjoy your weekend, but before you go, remember to ‘Leave No Trace’ leave the outstanding Cornbury Park as you find it, separate your rubbish into the three types of bins provided by the festival, use the cup deposit scheme available to stop plastic waste and take your Full Circle hygiene kit home after to refill, recycle or compost.
