The best festival tech for this summer

Festival season is fast approaching and if you’ve already secured your tickets for your chosen festival(s), chances are you need to start planning soon! The first things you think of when going to a festival are your tent, sleeping bag and food, but don’t forget to pack some techie essentials that’ll make your life so much easier whilst your at the festival.

Power bank

Although lots of festivals now have charging areas, it will be easier to skip the queues and the hassle of actually finding it if you have your own power bank to use whenever you wish. We’re fans of Anker’s Powercore as it has multiple charges for different devices and is more affordable than similar products.

Nokia 3310

No I’m not suggesting you take this old-school phone so you can take your 90’s swag to even higher heights, although it does help. This classic phone has been remastered and makes the ideal companion at a festival thanks to its battery standby for over a month. YES. A MONTH. You won’t even need the power bank at all and it’s great for ringing your friends when you’ve lost them!

A good speaker

If you want to get the vibes going before bands kick off for the day or keep the fun going after the bands have finished, it’s worth taking a good speaker. The Ultimate Ears Boom 3 wireless speakers are perfect for festivals with it enhanced battery life which will stay powered and pump tunes throughout your day. Even better than that, it’s waterproof so definitely ideal for the UK summer!

Tile to help you find your belongings

It’s just a given that when you go to a festival, you’re bound to misplace your belongings, get things mixed up with your mates and find stuff buried in your sleeping bag two days after you needed it. Tile makes sure you can always find what you need! Download the accompanying Tile app and literally ring your belongings so you can track them down amongst all the chaos!

Solar shower

When baby wipes just won’t do, this handy little gadget will help you feel fresh as a daisy. All you do if fill up your solar shower with water, leave in the sun for a couple of hours to heat and you’re ready to wash off all that festival mud and sweat!
