/ A tent.
/ A mallet (pushing tent pegs in by hand can hurt).
/ A sleeping bag.
/ A foil blanket (super cheap and super handy if you get chilly).
/ A blow up pillow (aeroplane pillows actually work great if you’re saving space).
/ A ground mat (if you’ve got room, these will save your back during the nights).
/ Bin bags. They have a multitude of uses!
/ Sleeping mask and ear plugs if you want some rest.
/ Your festival outfits (t-shirts, shorts, shirts, a jacket, trainers, etc). Aim for lightweight stuff to reduce the weight of the bag you’ll be lugging around!
/ Rain boots and a raincoat or poncho in case its wet.
/ A hat or cap (great for weather and great for covering messy festival hair).
/ Comfy light pyjamas.
/ Socks and underwear.
/ Mini toothpaste and mini toothbrush.
/ Lots and lots of wet wipes.
/ Hand sanitiser.
/ A mini first aid kit (you’ll be grateful for this if you suffer any blisters or bites).
/ Any medication you need, along with paracetamol for any headaches you may get…
/ Sanitary stuff. Better safe than sorry.
/ A hairbrush and hair ties.
/ Dry shampoo.
/ Sun cream.
/ A towel (if you’re planning on showering or just need to dry off from the rain).
/ Make up (pack only your essentials; chances are you won’t wear much of it and you don’t want to lose your nice stuff!)
/ Your ticket!
/ Bank card
/ ID (don’t let a lack of identification ruin your trip).
/ A phone charge pack (don’t waste precious time hanging around a charging station).
/ Disposable cameras. Seriously, these are so much more fun than your phone camera.
/ A hipflask (small and easy to carry around).
