Glastonbury Campervan Top Tips
With festival season around the corner, and an 8 Ball Camper Glastonbury trip approaching I thought it would be good to share some top tips for bringing a campervan to a festival. Campervans are the ultimate hack to making festivals the best they can be. No more blow up mattresses or cold sleeping bags, being able to return to your camp site and relax in your warm cosy camper makes festival camping that little bit more enjoyable. This blog includes some check list essentials and top tips to optimising your festival campervan experience.
- Bin Bags
- Ear Plugs
- Portable shower
- Portable toilet
- Lots of beer and food (to save yourself a fortune)
- Portable charger (for during the day)
- Daytime Rucksack
- Biodegradable Baby Wipes
- Toilet roll
- Blankets and duvets
- Gas Bottle
Bring an Awning
Having an Awning will make your pitch bigger and will add more space for you and your mates to chill, it also means more people can stay on your pitch as you can have people sleep in the awning and in the campervan. It allows space for you to take your muddy shoes off, keeping the campervan as clean as possible!
Arriving early is important to allowing a more relaxed start to your festival, it means no rush finding the right spot, and pitching up all your stuff will be way less stressful. It also means you get a longer holiday and festival which is always a bonus.
Bring a safe
Bringing a safe allows you to have peace of mind when leaving your campsite, putting any valuables into a safe will mean your belongings will be safer and you can relax and enjoy the festival a lot more.
Don’t lose your pitch
Remember where you set up camp, this will become useful when you are arriving back in the early hours of the morning and can be easily forgotten when you’re excited to explore the festival. This can be done by making notes or taking pictures of where you are camping. Alternatively, you could bring a flag pole to identify your pitch, this can also be used to mark your place in the crowds within the arena, making it easier to find your friends.
Being organised and planning well before any trip is useful, but especially festivals, as anything you forget or leave until you arrive may become very expensive, as we all know festivals charge a lot for the most basic and cheap items. Another thing to remember is being organised within your campervan, as its a smaller space this is important to keeping it clean and comfortable, as it can easily build up a mess and become annoying.
I hope this has been helpful in preparation for festival season. Remember to be safe and have the best time!
