Fun Festival Essentials for Camp Bestival
This year we are all about fun festivals and partying through the summer! Experienced campers know straight off what they need to pack for a camping trip and there are useful resources all over the net. In this blog post, I am going to share my top tips for blagging your way into a festival and passing off as a seasoned camper by standing out from the crowd, armed with the trendiest festival candy there is for 2017.
Pimp your tent
During the weekend of camp Bestival, there are going to be tents everywhere! How will you locate your den after all that partying as dusk settles in? A great idea is to use a selection of bright and colorful fun festival props to make your camp Bestival home stand out from the crowd. We love Helium balloons and I have not yet been to a festival where they do not sell them. Tieing the string really tightly to the top of your tent poll will leave your trademark flying high and eventually lead the way back to camp for you. A tent flag is another great way to make your territory and this year we are choosing something really colorful to go with the pop star and rock star theme. Both balloons and flags are available online from Amazon and Ebay.
Pimp your ride
We wouldn’t dream of going to a festival without a wagon, especially with kids in tow. Invest in a sturdy wagon to hold festival gear whilst setting up your tent. During the daytime your wagon can be used to hold water bottles, sun hats and other fun festival essentials and by night your kids can cozy up in their ride with a plumped up cushion and picnic blanket whilst the sun goes down. A great excuse for us adults to stay out late with no responsibilities apart from having to pull our kids to our tents. Every year thousands of families decorate their festival wagons. You could use stickers, paint or even bunting!
Pimp your outfit
We are so excited to join in with camp Bestival’s fun festival theme this year. Families across the land are bouncing with excitement and planning their festival outfits in preparation to rock and pop in the summer of 2017. Badges, inflatable guitars, leather and denim are all expected to be on show this year at the most popular family festival in the UK.
“Celebrating our landmark tenth festi-holiday in style, Camp Bestival gets its rocks off with a theme guaranteed to get the whole family dancing all weekend long. Yes, Pop Stars & Rock Stars is the game and 27th – 30th July 2017 is the date you can’t miss this summer!”
