    How to prepare for festival season


    The festival season is well and truly almost upon us, but don’’t worry, you still have time to prepare for your weekend away.

    When preparing for festival season, it’’s important to consider the conditions you will likely be facing, including knee-high mud, cold nights and alcohol-fuelled evenings. When you have the right picture in mind, you’’ll know how to start preparing to minimise the risk of slips, trips and falls, as well as other festival accidents.

    Preparing for festival season

    So many people go to festivals with nothing more than their initial outfit and some drinks and snacks. While this carefree lifestyle may be enviable, it is always worth properly preparing for the festival season.

    Prepare for all eventualities

    When you’’re packing, be sure to check the weather. Pack accordingly, but if you plan to be away for more than two nights, it is always wise to prepare for all eventualities. Pack sun lotion, sun hats and raincoats. Wellington boots are typical festival attire, but whatever your choice of footwear, it will need to be sturdy to minimise the risk of trips and falls.

    Prepare to phone home

    It’’s also worthwhile investing in a temporary phone for the festival season. One that you don’’t mind losing or damaging, but will still provide you with the facility of ringing home, and staying in touch with those who care.

    Prepare your body

    It may seem all fun and games, but when you attend a music festival, you can be on your feet, walking and standing, for hours and hours on end. Incorporate some training into your daily regime. This may simply mean walking a few thousand extra steps each day, or hitting the gym.

    Just make sure you’’re fitness ready for festival season.

    Claiming compensation for accidents this festival season

    If you are involved in an accident this festival season through no fault of your own, you may be able to claim compensation for the harm and distress you have endured, no matter whether you suffered a minor trip or a more severe accident.

    In the case that you suffer injury due to festival company negligence, they can be held liable for your accident and injuries, for failing in their duty of care. Of course, you will need an expert legal team on hand to help with the claims process, which is where Accident Advice Helpline can assist.
