We have some great gear to add to your festival kit list
Coleman Blackout 4
Coleman has created a special festival collection this year with tents designed specifically for festivals. The tents are lightweight, with distinctive designs to make sure you can find your way home easily in the maze of tents. As the name suggests they also have special blackout technology to keep over 90% of natural light out which is really especially useful if you have overdone it the night before and are trying to sleep it off in the daytime.
If you have a nice blackout tent then you really need a nice comfy bed to go with it, and Coleman has a great airbed to compliment their tents. They are designed to be comfortable and offer dual chambers so both sides of the bed can have different firmness. We think a good bed is the best way to shake off the overindulgence of the night before
The Party Grill 400 is a great addition to any camping trip with its versatility to cook in various ways. There's the standard burner, a grill, griddle and even the lid doubles up as a wok. It takes the standard Camping Gaz canisters and comes in a handy bag to keep it all tidy.
The Lava BrightSound 2 is a great 3in1 light/speaker/charger. It's got a LED lantern with adjustable brightness and a Bluetooth speaker. It also has a USB power output so you can even charge your mobile devices with too. It's nicely put together and fairly lightweight.
Another multi-purpose device here from Midland. This Radio/Light/Charger combo has some interesting features such as a wind-up charger and solar panel to charge up while you're off the grid. It's also got USB power so you can charge up devices and a LED torch.
This mini flood light is a super portable yet bright LED lamp. It pumps out plenty of light although better for illuminating smaller areas than being used as a torch as it has no lens to project the beam. It's the perfect lamp if you happen to lose something in the grass or illuminate the tent.
This insulated stainless steel bottle and cup combo are exactly what your wine needs out in the heat. The bottle is big enough to fit a whole bottle of wine in it and the insulation will keep it cool for hours. The tumbler has the same insulation and a lid (not watertight) to keep your drink cool and the flies out of it!
This 2-in-1 travel pillow is a great addition to your travels and especially useful at festivals. This pillow can be used as a travel pillow which would be great for the trip home when you're sleep deprived and just need to crash out (providing you're not the one doing the driving!) It then converts into a normal pillow for sleeping so you have the best of both worlds!
Go Travel also have this excellent belt pouch which is perfect for putting all your stuff in when out and about at a festival. It's got much more capacity than it looks like it should have due to the stretch fabric so it's got loads of room for keys, money and mobile phones.
Go Travel have another fabulous product which is perfect for slimming down your valuables for traipsing about a festival. The Slip Micro Card Wallet is a small credit card wallet with space for cards and notes. It's also got some sort of RFID protective wizardry preventing your card from being skimmed by an RFID Scanner or contactless payment scams.
We've got a really handy piece of tech for any of you careless people out there. The tile is a clever little gizmo which you can attach to your personal belongings and then track its location via your mobile phone. You can also use it to track your mobile phone by pressing the button on the unit to get your phone to make an audible noise (even if on silent!). It comes with an app which you install on your mobile phone and then can use the app to locate the tile. It has a 200 ft range so plenty of range to find your lost items in the campsite!
Sticking with tech we've got a great tool for those of you who like to stream / YouTube / or Podcast. The Blue Raspberry is a portable USB mic which works with iPhone and Android devices. With plug-and-play 24-bit/48kHz resolution you can be sure to up your sound quality over the mic on your mobile device and sound truly professional with your coverage of the festival.
This pocket-size (big pockets required) tripod is another great way to up your content quality and gain that professional look to your images. This tripod comes with a universal phone mount so you can make sure that your phone photos will be great, even if it's getting dark!
Try to reduce the impact of your overindulgences with these effervescent tablets and protein bars. Packed with vitamins these are a great way to replenish vitamins and hopefully take the edge off the sore head you developed in the early hours.
Storm have a great selection of waterproofing and tent aftercare products. If you've ever found yourself in a leaky tent at a festival you know it can be a miserable thing, having your only sanctuary from the rain being a damp and drippy place is no fun, so do something about it before you head off with these products from Storm.
