Festival Essentials

Festival season is fast approaching and here at Wowcher, we want to make sure that you're fully equipped for the time of your life! From practical accessories to fun festival fashion, we've got you covered to make sure that your experience is one to remember.

Camping is not for the faint-hearted, but we've got all kinds of gear to help you have the most comfortable experience! Have no clue how to erect a tent? Us neither! But we have a whole selection including automatic pop up tents which will make sure you have shelter without the stress of getting tangled up in pegs and fabric!

Once your tent is set up, you can chill out with your pals and enjoy a drink or two in comfort with some chairs and a foldable camping table! We also offer all sorts of camping accessories to suit your needs, from torch lights to loungers, and blankets to kettles. Don't be without your home comforts this festival season!

Once you've got your accommodation sorted, it's all about slaying festival fashion. Whether you're a Coachella inspired girlie, or Glastonbury is more your style, we have a whole host of different options to suit every vibe this summer.

You can't go wrong with a bit of sparkle at a festival so go bold with your glitter! Opt for a sequin body con mini skirt, paired with a plain coloured top, or go all out with a see-through flowing maxi dress! If casual's more your thing, then opt for a comfy yet stylish two-piece set, which can also be re-worn throughout the summer months!

Don't forget to accessorise too - we have a whole host of sunglasses on Wowcher to suit all face shapes - choose between glam, big bold frames, quirky sunglasses or classic, timeless styles.

Sadly, the British weather might not agree with your fabulous festival look, so make sure you protect yourself with a waterproof poncho! Perfect for slipping into your bag, these are great for embracing the inclement weather without dampening the vibes.

Going to a festival requires a lot of equipment, especially if you're camping, so make sure you can carry everything you need with ease with a spacious backpack. This is ideal for carrying your clothing, toiletries, water bottle, and even some camping equipment!

Once you're settled in, the key to surviving a festival is to be able to carry all your essential belongings without being weighed down, so your choice of bag is vital! We're huge fans of block colour shoulder bags (which can also be worn across the body). Despite being compact in size, these are surprisingly spacious and are ideal for carrying your phone, wallet, charger and other accessories. You could also opt for a classic bum bag - but make sure it matches the festival vibe!

Once you've got your outfit sorted, it's time to finish the look with some festival makeup! Create the perfect look with plenty of glitter, different colours, and maybe even some gems! There are no rules when festival makeup is involved. Just don't forget the makeup wipes for removal later on!

We encourage you to make a little checklist before you pack for your festival, however, we've got some practical essentials that you definitely need to make room for in your luggage!

Make sure your phone never runs out of juice with a portable phone charger - a must have for those long days and nights! Festivals are known for being loud and the party often continues long into the night which can make sleeping a bit of a problem. Make sure you catch at least 40 winks with a pair of noise cancelling ear plugs. Finally, while festivals are all fun and games, something that isn't is the toilet situation! If you can't bear the thought of queuing to use a grotty portaloo, spend a penny in peace with an emergency urine bag!
