The sites to help you enjoy yourselves to the max this festival season.

The gates of Glastonbury have opened and the teeming, muddy hordes are flinging themselves into the festival spirit as we speak. Another summer of festivals up and down the country has begun, and the Great British public, come rain or shine, will be pitching tents, digging out the fancy dress and generally having a good time. Here are a few sites to help you enjoy yourselves to the max this festival season.


This site really does what it says on the tin! Here you can buy tents, mats, waterproofs, wellies, henna tattoos, neon paints, masks and more. Perhaps their most useful products are the range of festival survival kits, such as the Essential Festival Survival Kit Deluxe, which includes body wash, shampoo, ear plugs, glow sticks, a charger, traveljohns and more besides. At £29.99 it could be a great present for a festival friend, perhaps?


Those who have attended British Festivals before will know that the weather can be... interesting. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say, so make sure you have checked the weather reports, and packed accordingly!


Not keen on taking the train/bus option? Don’t have a car of your own? Well, how about car sharing instead? With GoCarShare you can connect with drivers who have space in their car for an extra bottom or two. A much better solution for your stress levels, and for the environment too! You might even make some new friends while you are at it.


Newsflash! Having children doesn’t spell the end of your festival going days...and you may well find it is even more fun than before, Festival Kidz is dedicated to helping families get the best out of going to festivals with their offspring, offering advice on wagons, festival kit, entertainment, fancy dress and more.


Make sure that you don’t miss out on the things you want to see at your favourite festival. You can access other festival-goer’s ready-made Clashfinders, or you can use Clashfinder to make your own bespoke festival timetable.
