The excitement before going to a festival can be uncontrollable with anticipation of watching your favourite band reaching peak levels. This eagerness can often override any sense of what you should to take to a festival. It is wise to prepare for certain circumstances that could either make your time unpleasant or downright terrible.
We at Accident Advice Helpline have over 16 years of knowledge in personal injury claims. We aim to assist others in remaining safe or taking actions against individuals or groups that have compromised their well-being. In your case, this might mean claiming for an accident that you suffered at a music festival due to someone else’s foolishness or neglect.
What you should take to a festival
Below is a set of guidelines and a list of everything you should take to a festival. Following these allows you to have a safe and enjoyable time.
- A reusable water bottle. The importance of remaining hydrated during a festival that will last a few days cannot be overstated as the consequences of dehydration are very serious.
- A tent and other sleeping equipment. You don’t want to be left in the cold when you finally stop dancing and bringing your own tent is advisable.
- Wear comfortable and durable shoes. Given that you will be on your feet for a few days, you’re likely to develop blisters. Wear shoes that are comfy, warm and support your feet well.
- Sun protection and medication. Being protected from the sun, yes, even in the UK, is a very important thing. Did you know you can get sun burnt even when it’s cloudy?
- Never forget medication when you know that you’ll be unable to go home quickly to fetch it.
- Medical info. If you suffer from any conditions like diabetes or ketotic hypoglycaemia, you need to carry that information on you to alert paramedics or first aid medical staff of your special requirements if you are in an accident at a festival.
