The arrival of summer means only one thing to many music loving Brits – festivals festivals festivals!

From Glastonbury to Benicassim, there’s a plethora of field orientated fun just waiting for you as the hotter months draw closer. Festivals are generally regarded as right royal knees up, and you probably haven’t given much thought to those little essentials that you might need as you party your days away – so we’ve done the thinking for you! Our new season festival gear is now available to purchase both online and in stores, so here’s our pick of the most fabulous festival finery that we have to offer this summer...

Choose your tent wisely...

First and foremost, you’ll need a great looking, attention grabbing tent that has as much personality as it does reliability. We have some fantastic tents on offer that will fit right in at your festival of choice. Our Festival Patterned Dome Tent is ideal for ravishing revelry this summer season; sturdy with a fantastic patterned aesthetic, it will make you stand out from the crowd....even when the crowd is 20, 000 strong! For an easy tent experience that will see you unpacked and ready to party in minutes, give our Pop Up tent a go; available with both a single and a double skin, it is the easiest way get festival ready in seconds. Lastly, if you’re after a tent with a difference, let us introduce our Tipi Tent, which is vibrantly patterned, interestingly shaped and super tall – making it easy to find when you’re stumbling back from the main stage in the dark!

You’ll need a sleeping bag as well; our ground breaking, brand new ‘Egg’ sleeping bag is one of our most groundbreaking designs; wider than your usual sleeping bag, you can sleep in any shape within it – bringing a little bit of home to unfamiliar territory! Our Basecamp sleeping bag will also be a popular choice; budget priced yet not compromising on quality, it’s a great example of how Mountain Warehouse continues to offer cheap outdoors equipment that doesn’t compromise on quality.

Be Prepared with your Outdoor Equipment

As we all know, the weather at festivals can be questionable. Prepare for the worst with some essential waterproofs; we have some fantastic festival wellies on offer this season; from our Spotty Wellies to our Floral Wellies, these vibrant lovelies will beat your usual green garden wellies hands down! We also have some fantastic matching ponchos which are ideal for keeping you dry when the weather takes a turn for the worse – covering your whole body and head, they are incredibly practical whilst still looking great. Aside from these essentials, there are plenty of other things that you might need for your festival fun. A good camping stove like our Double Burner with Grill might come in handy, and will mean that you’re not spending all your money on greasy burgers! If the weather heats up, a handy hat like our Straw hat will be a godsend, and a lantern, a rucksack or even a picnic set might also make your festival fun that little bit easier. So you’re equipped and ready to revel...just make sure you tell us all your festival stories!
