2015 will be my seventh year at Glastonbury Festival! So I thought I’d give a run down of the gear I’m taking this year. Because once a scout, always a scout…
I’m traveling down on the coach this year, so it all about only taking what’s necessary! (almost)
First and most importantly… THE TICKET! You won’t get far without it!
So, now you’re at the festival, your tent’s up and your bed and a cuppa are waiting for you back at camp… but you’re a little inebriated and its dark… and all the tents look like yours… you’re going to need to identify a route through the site and find your tent in the dark. That’s where the Maglite Mini LED comes in!
There is a system in place for recharging phones on site now but I don’t want to spend my time queuing up to exchange a phone charger… so I take my own. This is the Freeloader Pro with extended Solar cell. This and another power block kept me charged all through last year.
While stomping around site I take a rucksack and my Camel bak hydration bladder… equally good at holding gin and tonic, as water…
I take a waterproof box with all my odds and ends in, Painkillers, House key, pen, spare batteries, bin bags, Tea bags mending patches.
You’ll have to carry all this gear for BLOODY MILES across the site at the start and end, so you really can’t beat a quality rucksack. mine is a North Face Tera 65… its a cracking bag!
I’ve not mentioned clothes, because we all know about clothes… just make sure you’ll be dry, warm, and comfortable… that goes for footwear too. After years of putting it off, I’ve succumb to wellies… hateful things but they are the only real way to wade ankle deep in mud for days on end.
