How to Create the Ultimate Festival Survival Kit!

14 June 2017

It’s festival season, and the sound of a thousand rucksacks being packed are heard across the nation. However, even the most prepared camper can miss out an indispensible item. And if you’ve ever been to a festival, you’ll know how annoying it is when you forget a vital item.

So, if you want everything you need to survive sleeping in a field with 60,000 other people, check out our festival survival guide and head to B&M for a full range of value-for-money festival gear.

Our festival essentials kit includes everything you need for a weekend of music, dancing and fun. Here's a few must-haves...

3-4 Person Pitch & Go Pop Up Tent

Avoid scratching your head over tent poles and guy ropes in the rain with this amazing pop up tent. Unfold it to reveal a 3-4 person, water resistant tent that comes complete with a PE floor, twin zip and roll up entrance. Available in blue & black and green & blue.

Batiste dry shampoo

As any veteran festivalgoer knows, no trip away is complete without a bottle of Batiste Dry Shampoo. This will pep up your locks when there’s no shower or hair dryer in sight, and save you from unsightly greasy roots.

Nivea Daily Essentials 3-in-1 Cleansing Wipes

One of the ultimate festival accessories! With your hair sorted, these Nivea cleansing wipes will not only cleanse your face, but are great for acting as handy wipes for hands, mud splashes, cleaning camping equipment and general housekeeping around the tent. These are vital to surviving the festival experience!

Xpel Mosquito Repellent Wipes

When you’re hanging outside in the evenings, the last thing you want is to be fodder for the local mozzies. We’re bringing these mosquito and insect repellent wipes to our next festival and applying liberally.

Bestway Inflatable Double Bed

Like the idea of glamping but not the price tag that goes along with the luxury yurts at Glastonbury? Make sure you get a decent night’s sleep with this inflatable double bed! This is the perfect mattress to crash on after an evening of dancing with pals. Also available as a single mattress.

Tritan Water Bottle

It’s important to keep hydrated during a festival. If you’re drinking beer, or spending too much time in the sun, dehydration can kick in, so keep a handy water bottle nearby and remember to keep your water levels topped up through out the day.

Allergy and Hayfever One A Day Tablets

While waking up in the Great Outdoors might be just the tonic you need, suffering from hayfever isn’t. Swollen eyes and a runny nose can ruin a festival, so take some antihistamines with you. This is one Glastonbury essential you shouldn’t leave home without.

Malibu Sun Cream Travel Bag

It goes without saying that sun cream is a must – and vital if you’re spending so much time outdoors, whether the sun is beating down or not. This ingenious little pack contains two different factor creams and some after sun to soothe skin after a day out and about.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your face glitter, wellies and crate of beer and go out and enjoy! Did B&M help you get kitted out? We want to know! Share your festival pictures with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
