Menswear: Festival Essentials For Him

I teamed up with my boyfriend for this post, to bring you his guide for festival essentials. Obviously clothes, food, alcohol, tent, sleeping bag and tickets is a given, but aside from that, these are his essential festival items!

Folk Jacket: Stylish and perfect for showers, when it’s not being worn, it fits perfectly into a backpack.

Barbour Hat: For keeping the sun off his face and away from his shaved head. The ear flaps keep him warm when the night falls.

Shortbread Biscuits: My boyfriends favourite, he will happily eat these for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If money runs low or cooking is too much effort, shortbread is the way to go!

Converse Trainers: If it’s hot and dry, there is no need for wellies, my man always goes for Converse as they are comfortable and light.

Havaiana’s Flip Flops: I use mine for festival showers, but he packs flip flops for when he is going for a middle-of-the-night wee as well as mornings around the campsite.

Fjallraven Kanken Backpack: To keep the essentials close at hand; Waterproofs, water, snacks and what-nots.

Ray Ban Sunglasses: No Squinting and no dark circles (on show!)

Ear Plugs: For bedtime.

Bottle Opener: Easily forgotten, pretty important.

Monster Portable Phone Charger: Obviously.

Lightweight Torch: It can be tricky finding your way back to the tent in the dark, there tends to be guy ropes everywhere which can be easily tripped over. A lightweight torch is essential.

Muck Boots: My boyfriend loves these, they are lightweight and keep his feet cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold. They are also super comfortable and perfect for standing, walking and dancing all day and night!

Dermalogica Suncream: From campsite to arena, you are always in the sun. My boyfriend loves Dermalogica as it lasts all day long, with no stickiness and no residue.

Bodhi & Birch Mint Thé Bath and Shower Gel: This is my boyfriends favourite shower gel, it’s a blend of Peppermint, Spearmint, Eucalyptus, Marjoram and Frankincense. It’s fresh, uplifting, super-clean. If he can get a shower at the festival, this will leave him clean and fresh.

Dermalogica Wipes: For keeping clean.

Neal’s Yard Remedies Wipes: Because one pack is never enough.

Orla Kiely Hand Sanitiser: Clean and fresh with a nice scent.

Happy Camping!
