Top 10 Tips for packing for arctangent
Be sure to write separate packing lists for tent equipment, food stuffs, clothes and toiletries, it really helps to be organised.
A Full Circle Eco-friendly festival survival kit will keep you clean all weekend long from the comfort of your tent, with a cotton bag to hang it all in safe off of the tent floor. Unisex deodorant, citrus smelling no rinse body wash and exotic dry shampoo, toothpaste, bamboo toothbrush, eco towel, antibacterial hand gel and loo roll, its all there and in our finest eco friendly materials, everything in the kit is either reusable, recyclable or biodegradable.
Do not forget your suncream, stay safe in the sun and slap on a high factor.
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!
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.
Open fires and BBQ’s are not permitted on site but camper stoves are allowed as long as they do not scorch the grass, we advise to make breakfast the main meal that you cook for as it is nice and easy, think omelettes and baked beans, cooked breakfast sarnies, breakfast burritos etc then explore the amazing food stalls which cater for all.
Glass is not permitted so if you wish to bring alcohol the limit is a crate of lager, ale or cider in non glass containers or one bottle of wine/spirits but once again - no glass.
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!
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.
However many pairs of socks you pack, add a couple of extras just incase. Trust us when we say you really can’t ever have too many pairs of socks at a festival. If you’re taking only sandals, well, shame on you for ignoring tip 8, but you do get a pass on bringing any socks at all then…
