Radio 1’s Big Weekend is kicking of festival season with a stunning line up in the UK’s City of Culture, Hull.

To truly embrace the festival spirit, it’s a good idea to devote some time to preparing and packing your festival essentials. Follow these top tips for a smooth-running ride:

1 – Roll clothes and fix sleeping bags and blankets onto bags for ultimate space efficiency using VELCRO® Brand Stretch Straps.

VELCRO® Brand Stretch Straps.

2 – It’s always a good idea to choose a tent larger than the number of people camping, this gives you extra space for your bags. If there are two of you camping then look for a three-berth tent.

3 – For those late night trips to the toilet don’t forget to pack a torch! Your fellow campers will thank you for not falling over them!

4  – Be sure to pack a folding chair, they’re compact, reliable and you’ll be thanking yourself throughout the festival! 


5 – Mostly importantly, pack your weekend supply of food and drink securely in the boot using STAYHOLD™ the modular cargo organiser. STAYHOLD™ sticks to the carpet and keeps everything firmly in place.

Now all that’s left is to sit back and enjoy a weekend of music (and hopefully some sunshine!)
