With tickets for the world famous music festival, Glastonbury, going on sale this past weekend, I thought I’d share a few of my Glastonbury essentials that saved my life during the event.
While I’ve been to music festivals like Coachella and Leeds in the past, nothing could have prepared me for the amazingness this event had to offer. Glastonbury basically has several mini-worlds within one festival.
There are endless things to do even if you’re not watching music.
10 Things That Saved My Life At Glastonbury
As a Glasto-newbie this year 6 days of camping, drinking, dancing, and thoroughly enjoying life definitely pushed my body to the limits.
So here are a few tips to help make your experience way more comfortable:
Because you should hope for sun but expect rain. Even if it’s a short rain spurt the fields get instantly muddy and stay that way for days
Because getting filthy isn’t a maybe it’s a fact
Again expect rain and mud. Waterproof fabrics won’t allow mud to soak through your body.
Take a look at the most popular waterproof jackets for travel!
Because standing in a rain storm requires as much protection as possible to withstand the cold for the duration of the day
Because they are the perfect item to layer on as the day cools down (plus also don’t absorb mud)
Easy to carry all the necessary items to get you through your day
These are 12 gorgeously designed cute backpacks for travel!
Premixed cocktail drinks in a can
Because they’re easy to carry and always ready on the go
Because showers aren’t readily available so a bathing suit allows you to bathe anytime anywhere
A must at any festival sun or no sun.
Whether dehydration or the weather chapped or dry lips aren’t any fun
