Top 10 Tips for packing for isle of wight festival
Be sure to write separate packing lists for tent equipment, food stuffs, clothes and toiletries, it really helps to be organised before you pack.
A Full Circle Eco-friendly festival survival kit will help you to keep clean all weekend long and it’s packed in a handy cotton bag to hang it in. Citrus smelling no rinse body wash and exotic dry shampoo will get your all important bits clean and the unisex deodorant, fresh mint toothpaste, bamboo toothbrush, eco towel, antibacterial hand gel and loo roll will do the rest. Our finest eco friendly materials are there to keep you fresh all festival long and everything in the kit is either reusable, recyclable or biodegradable.
Don’t forget your sun cream, prepare for sunshine and make it a high factor to prevent any sunburn.
Buy or borrow a trolley to transport your bits from your car to the campsite for the festival weekend and it will be a great help later on as well to carry children, blankets or booze around!
Please do not bring or buy plastic water bottles, but do keep hydrated! Take your reusable bottles and refill where you need them, we love Raw bottles and encourage all festival goers to use refillable solutions!
Portable BBQ’s can be used on site but take care not to use them in confined spaces due to carbon monoxide dangers, camping stoves using small, disposable gas canisters under 300ml are permitted and no knives please. Take plenty of easy cook foods and make breakfast your campsite meal of the day then enjoy what the array of food tents have to offer onsite.
Due to licence conditions glass is not permitted so if you wish to bring alcohol it needs to be in cans. No plastic please!
Bring wellies AND flipflops! You never know with the Great British weather so dress for any eventuality and layer up.
Help find your way in the dark with solar lights for your tent and for those night time toilet trips a head lamp comes in ultra handy.
Most of all…..switch off your electronics where possible and lose yourself in the diverse programme of music, theatre, film, comedy, activities and games.
