I heard last night on the radio that the Jet Stream might be about to move to its normal summer location and deliver us some badly-needed sunshine.
At last. If the weather gurus are right, it looks like the festival season might not be so much of a washout after all. If you’ve ever spent three days in a tent going slowly mouldy as the rain pelts down, and wading through acres of foot-deep mud, you’ll appreciate the news!
Better still one of our discount code partners, GetMeIn, is offering some excellent festival ticket deals. Here’s a quick link: GetMeIn discount codes.
But what about all the other stuff we take to festivals? For a start, it’s a laugh to take along a load of party stuff. There’s free delivery when you spend £49 or more with our Our Party Packs discount codes, plus more special offers on the Party Packs website.
Their flags and bunting are perfect for creating a visible, fun camping area for you and your mates. Why visible? Because it can be a challenge finding your tent somewhere like Glastonbury, especially when you’re a bit squiffy.
We’ve got an eight foot yellow smiley face flag and a sixteen foot telescopic flagpole, so we never lose our tent. At the last festival we went to, earlier this year, people were using it as a meeting place. We kept hearing people saying, “I’ll see you at the smiley face flag”, and we drew a small but constant crowd. Perhaps a bit too conspicuous, but a giggle anyway.
Then there’s fancy dress. We take our black morph suits and orange afro wigs to festivals, carrying out short guerilla expeditions into the crowds, which is hilarious. We must appear in thousands of people’s festival photos and videos, but they haven’t a clue who we are. We get a real kick out of it. Then again, we don’t get out much (!)
Then there was ‘Man in a Dress’, a bloke at a five day solar eclipse festival we went to a few years ago. He had a head of amazing waist-length dreads and a big beard, and wore massive steel capped docker boots with the most gorgeous meringue of a wedding dress. Now that was a man confident in his masculinity. We’ve never forgotten him. It rained for the entire five days and he strode around in his dress the whole time. Lol!
Party Packs sell fancy dress costumes too, a fantastic range at low prices. Go on. I dare you.
If you need camping gear, stuff like stoves and lights, tarpaulins and torches, you can’t beat Robert Dyas, another of our partners. Click through to our Robert Dyas discount codes and see how much you can cut the cost of festival survival essentials.
What’s left to say? Pack your cagoules and wellies along with your Ts and shorts just in case, gird up your loins, ignore the weather and have a fantastic time!
PS. I am the one in the orange wig.
