Summer festival survival checklist

Press Release date: May 29th 2019

Spending a weekend with friends, listening to your favourite artists and dancing the night away is what Summer festivals are all about. And we’re sure you can agree that a dead phone battery or lack of dry socks has the power to get in the way of it all.

So, to ensure your summer festival experience goes more than smoothly, check out our summer festival survival checklist:


Toiletries should always be at the top of your festival checklist. Having items such as hand sanitizer, dry shampoo and baby wipes available during what’s usually quite a messy weekend is always a good idea.
Pop some sun cream in too; it’s good to stay hopeful!

Power bank

We all know the sheer panic that you feel when your phone battery has died, leaving you with no way of getting in contact with the friends that you’ve managed to lose sight of in the midst of it all.
Having a power bank handy will make sure you’re always within reach.

A good quality tent

It’s everyone’s worst nightmare – waking up during a lovely sleep to rain dripping on your face and water leaking into your sleeping bag.
Chip in with all your friends for a good quality tent; don’t let that nightmare become a reality!

Appropriate clothing

We understand the importance of getting the perfect Instagram during your festival weekend. But, we also understand the unpredictability of Irish weather, meaning it’s super important to pack appropriate clothing!
This includes a decent rain jacket, tonnes of spare socks and anything else to keep you nice n’ cosy.

Cash and cards

Not all vendors at music festivals accept card so be sure to have some cash on hand. Also, keep your bank card and ID close in case any sort of emergencies arise.

We hope you find our summer festival survival checklist helpful!
