Summer festivals 2011 a survival guide

Well Summer is finally here, that can only mean one thing its festival time.

Here at in the fashion we love a good festival, so here is out top festivals you must go to this Summer.

Isle of Wight- 10th- 12th June
Glastonbury- 22nd to 26th June
T in the Park- 8th of July to 10th
V Festival 20th of August to 21st
Reading 26th of August to 28th

Unlike on the content British weather can play havoc with Music festivals, sea of mud, springs to mind.

Heres our top tips for festivals The key to festival style is to realise that when you’ve pitched up with three other people in a £30 one-man pop-up tent, and you daren’t use the showers because somebody pooed in them on the first night, the benchmark for looking good is lowered.
As long as you remember wellies, some sort of rain mac and sunscreen, you’ll be fine.

Bring plenty of clothes too, if it rains you need to be comfortble.

Now for the sensible bits,
Choose a good pitch – preferably away from the toilets
Test run putting your new tent up before you go as putting it up in the dark won’t be much fun, if it’s the first time.

Wear old clothes and preferably ones with zips.
Take drinks that you won’t mind drinking warm. Fridges aren’t in abundance at your campsite!
Don’t take anything you wouldn’t want to lose. Do you really need to take your ipod?

Don’t put padlocks on your tent – it only highlights the fact you’ve got something worth nicking!
Take a mobile phone – festival sites are massive and YOU WILL get lost. Most phone companies have charging facilities – be prepared to queue though.

What ever you do have fun and enjoy the Weather and the Music
