Music Festival Life Hacks – Heading down to a festival this year? Then you’ll need to be prepared. Here are some of the best hacks – all tried and tested and they could possibly save your summer. 

1. TAKE A BIGGER TENT THAN YOU’LL NEED
Always add a “person” to the size tent you’re taking to your festival. If there’s two of you, get a three-man tent. Why? Because you need to have all your rucksacks, clothes, food and other junk in there with you, which takes up a person’s worth of space.
 
2. DON’T PACK A PILLOW, PACK A PILLOW CASE!
You’ll struggle to fit a pillow into your rucksack, so why bother? You’ll have plenty of clothes with you anyway, so simply stuff the empty pillow case with a nice jumper and Bob’s your uncle.
 
3. WRAP SOME GAFFER TAPE AROUND A WATER BOTTLE
You don’t need to pack a whole roll of the stuff, just enough in case of an unexpected rip/tear/deflation/tent pole snap. A space-saver and a very possible life-saver in an emergency. Photo: ShamelessTraveller.com

4. TAKE A CRAP PHONE – Music Festival Life Hacks
Your iPhone 6 may be great, but chances are it will run out of battery at some point, and charging it will be difficult, so don't rely on it too much. Also, if you drop it down the long drop, you’ll never see it again. So dig out an old phone if you still have one, or buy a cheap one that does the bare minimum: call and text. If you need to browse online while you’re at the festival, you’re doing it wrong.
 
5. INVEST IN A PHONE CHARGER
You don’t want to spend the majority of your weekend queuing with ten thousand people to recharge your dead phone, so why not avoid the fuss? USB battery chargers are now affordable – the higher the milliampere-hours (mAh), the quicker the pack will recharge your device. Or, more expensive are solar power chargers, which won’t run out as long as you can recharge them with sunlight. In a real emergency, wind-up USB chargers are cheap and cheerful. 
 
6. EAT ONE SOLID MEAL A DAY
Raving all day and raving all night takes up a lot of energy, so make sure you eat properly. Ensure you have a substantial dinner with carbs in it before heading out for an all-nighter to keep on ’til dawn. Also, take some cereal bars – they're a cheap breakfast, no milk required… And it saves you paying a tenner for a bacon roll.

7. STASH SOME DRY CLOTHES IF YOU CAN
If you drive and you’re taking a car to the festival, leave a spare pair of jeans and socks in the car, so when you leave after four days of torrential downpour, you'll be warm and snug.
 
8. GET MINIMAL WITH YOUR TOILETRIES
Anything you pack makes for extra weight to be carried or dragged from your house to the festival site, so travelling smartly can be a boon. Don’t take a whole bar of soap, shave off some slivers with a kitchen grater for a “one-wash” wonder. Don’t take a whole tube of toothpaste, squeeze some blobs onto a plate, let them dry over a couple of days and chuck them into a waterproof bag. Photo: Pinterest

9. PACK A MALLET
The amount of times we’ve turned up at a festival and had to try and push our tent pegs into the hard, unforgiving stony ground. You can get a rubber mallet for a few quid at any camping store, or how about this dinky plastic one that allows you to pull the pegs out of the ground with ease, too? 
 
10. SEALABLE SANDWICH BAGS WILL SAVE YOUR STUFF – Music Festival Life Hacks
Put your phone, money and other valuables inside and seal! A life-saver if the festival you’re at turns into a monsoon on day one. Photo: eBay 
 
11. INVEST IN WATER AND BANANAS
One morning you will be worse the wear from alcohol, so you need a cure. You’ll need to re-hydrate (hence the water) and potassium is vital for proper nerve function (hence the bananas). Plus, those bananas will help with the low blood sugar you’ll experience from too much alcohol.
 
12. KEEP A LAYER OF CLOTHING IN RESERVE
No matter how cold you are, there's always potential for it to get colder. An extra hoodie or jumper might bring you relief as you stand and watch the Rinky Dink Bike at 4am in the morning.
 
13. BE A CLEVER CAMPER
Try and get on site as early as you can. The earlier you are, the better spot you can bag. Don’t fret if you arrive later, though – just be prepared to walk further to your campsite. Don’t camp at the bottom of a hill (you can imagine what happens when the rain starts to fall), and be careful you don’t camp too near the Gabba Revival All-Nighter Tent if you want to get some kip. Make sure you don’t pitch downwind of the toilets BUT don’t camp too far away from the lavs in case of an emergency.

14. KNOW YOUR PLACE
Remember where you’ve pitched your tent and its relation to the festival site. Find a decent landmark: a path, a toilet block, a group of gurning lunatics, anything that will be familiar to you when you’re staggering back to your crib at a million o’clock in the morning. Putting a England/Scotland/Wales flag on top of your tent won’t cut it – EVERYONE does that.
 
15. HIDE SOME MONEY IN YOUR PHONE CASE
There are ATMs on site, but queuing for them is a huge waste of your weekend. Don’t assume every stall will take contactless payments! Take what you money you will need, but beware of spending cash on crap – do you really need to buy that sombrero? Wouldn’t food be a better purchase? And don’t keep all your money in the same place, just in case you lose your wallet/bumbag. As an emergency, stash a couple of notes underneath your phone case, (or in the battery case if you have a cheap one).
 
16. PLAN YOUR POCKETS
Keep your essential items in the same pockets, so despite how drunk you get you’ll always remember where your phone or wallet is. And don’t put your phone in your top or back pocket – because you will inevitably lean over and drop it straight into the long drop.
 
17. WET WIPES ARE YOUR BATHROOM NOW
Forget trying to have a proper wash or queuing for a shower, stock up on LOTS of wet wipes and freshen yourself up that way.
 
18. KNOW YOUR TOILETS
The festival toilet is a tricky beast to negotiate, but do not fear it. The long drops may be your idea of hell, but being out in the fresh air, with several feet between you and the pit of human filth is often preferable to being enclosed in a hot and steaming portable toilet. Avoid the toilets near the main stage areas and thoroughfares – they’ll be battered from thousands of people using them and will be RANK. A good tip is to spot which loos have just been cleaned and use them before they go “on the turn”.
 
19. MIND THOSE STINGY HANDS
Contact lens wearer? Always wash your hands before putting your lenses in, because it's more than likely your hands will be covered in anti-bacterial handwash and it'll sting like hell. Dip your fingers in the saline solution you’ve just taken your lenses out of for pain-free eyeballs.
 
20. DON’T WEAR A ONESIE 
It may be utterly chic, but you may have to unbutton it in a portable toilet cubicle in the dark, and nobody wants that. Photo: Amazon
 
21. CREATE YOUR OWN MEETING POINT
If you lose your friends and can’t contact them, work out a way of being spotted from a distance. Get a tent pole or piece of garden cane and tie a flag or distinctive inflatable to the top of it. You’ll soon be spotted by your friends and other people will start using you as a reference point! Option 2 for nighttime use: get a whistle and concoct your own personal “signal”.
 
22. HEAD TORCHES ARE YOUR FRIEND
Because you can pretend you're Orbital in the dance tent and you'll be able to spot those pesky guy ropes on the way back to your tent in a pitch black field. Photo: Amazon
 
23. CREATE YOUR OWN “QUIET SPACE”
Your energy will flag if you don’t get any sleep, so invest in some ear plugs and an eye mask to keep out the noise and the daylight if you’ve had a big night.
 
24. MAKE YOUR OWN SUPER LANTERN – Music Festival Life Hacks
Light up your camping space by strapping a regular head lamp to a large milk or water bottle – hey presto, glowing goodness.
 
25. NACHOS MAKE GREAT KINDLING FOR A CAMPFIRE
It’s true. Any nacho will do, look this guy will show you how.
 
26. REMEMBER THE PINCER MOVEMENT
Use the pincer movement to get nearer to the front of the crowd – go in via the side, it saves you having to barge past 100,000 people, most of whom are probably taller than you. And don’t bother pushing your way to the very front barrier – the sound quality is worse, you’ll have less space to do your thing and will find it’s almost impossible to leave.
 
27. DON’T GO MUD SURFING
You may get your photo in the papers, but you'll be caked in dry shit for days. And it'll get everywhere. Everywhere, we tells yer!

 
28. LEAVE EARLY… OR LEAVE LATE
Make sure you plan your getaway – either pack up and get off the site in the early hours before the masses wake up, or take your time on the Monday and wait for the crowds to thin out. If you go between 7am and 9am, you’ll inevitably get stuck in a bottleneck trying to get through the exit gates.

 
29. YOU WILL MAKE LOTS OF FRIENDS IN THE CAR PARK ON MONDAY…
…if you have a pair of jump leads on you.
 
30. THIS ONE SIMPLE RULE WILL SAVE YOU ANY GRIEF:
Don’t take anything you’re not prepare to lose or damage in some way

Everybody loves a music festival. Music Festivals and their headline acts are the dreams of my music festival fans. Most music festival fans will try the music festival camping and the music festival camping is a integral part of the music festival experience. I have been to a few music festivals such as Sonisphere Music Festival and Download Music Festival but I have always love the idea of one day going to Reading & Leeds Music Festival, Glastonbury Music Festival, Hyde Park Calling Festival, Isle Of Wight Festival, Bloodstock Music Festival and maybe Woodstock Festival, Burning Man Festival, Wacken Music Festival, or even Sweden Rocks Music Festival sometime in the future.

Music Festivals can be a great way to meet people and find new bands and normally have big music festival headliners with fantastic live sets such as Metallica, Rammstein, Avenged Sevenfold, Muse, Eminem, Chase and Status, Paramore, Guns and Roses, Foo Fighters, Slipknot, Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, Linkin Park, and many other live music festival headliners and live festival sets that draw thousands in to enjoy their favourite music festival.

This vlog is to offer Ultimate Music Festival Survival Guide and Festival Top Tips for music festival camping tips as a music festival survival guide based on my experience as a boy scout and a veteran of Download Music Festival and Sonisphere which are known for their fluctuating weather conditions. This Survival Guide will help you survive the music festival.
