With it being summer and the festival season, people are thinking of nothing but attending festivals. Those who have camped at festivals know that it is both fun and quite challenging. You can do a number of things to make sure that all you have is fun when camping during these festivals. This article seeks to educate the reader on a couple of things he or she can do as to ensure that all they have is fun when camping during festivals.
Firstly, you should ensure that you buy a tent that is not only light but also very easy to assemble. The reason why it ought to be light is that you may be required to walk quite a distance from the place you park your car to the area you are allocated to pitch your tent. It should also be easy to assemble so you can do it fast and get to relax.
Secondly, you should carry something that will help you identify your tent such as a balloon or a flag. The reason for this is that very many people camp during festivals and there is therefore a risk of entering a tent that is not yours. You will most probably get drunk during a festival and if you mount a flag or a balloon near your tent, you will be able to easily find your tent even in your drunk state.
A lot of festival goers make their own lanterns from bottles of water and headlamps. A headlamp is important because it will allow you to remain outside even at night. If you are one of those people who enjoy socializing, you will appreciate the need for a lantern since it will allow you to continue socializing even at night.
Another important camping hack is to always have a portable charger with you. This is very important because your phone’s battery cannot last you throughout the festival without requiring a recharge. Though there are charging points available at the camping grounds, you may not get a chance to use them because of the high number of people waiting in line. If you have a portable charger, you get to charge your phone while at any place.
Every festival goer understands the need for coolers when one is out camping. If you do not have a cooler, you may be forced to take your drinks while they are warm due to the summer heat and nobody really wants that. If you do not want this, ensure that a cooler with ice packs is one of the first things you pack when going camping. Stealing is not uncommon during festivals and it is therefore important to have a place where you can hide your valuables.
