V Festival: The Survival Guide For 2015

V Festival: The Survival Guide For 2015
August 20
09:00 2015


With Kasabian, Calvin Harris, Olly Murs, Stereophonics, and Tom Jones at V Festival this year, you’re in for a treat. So that you’re ready for the 22nd – 23rd August 2015, here are a few survival tips for weathering the storm on a festival campsite – have a great time!

Clothing Essentials

Although many fashion bloggers hit up V Festival in their chic, bohemian attire, we wouldn’t recommend caring too much about your outward appearance. Take it from us; it’s far better to feel comfortable. Given the kind of volatile weather that the UK specialises in, your footwear needs to be comfy, but also something that you won’t mind stepping into a huge mud bath in. Wellies are always a great idea. Bring various layers and a waterproof poncho!

Your Phone

V Festival has a strong mobile phone game. Although we’d recommend taking a phone that you don’t mind drunkenly losing, you’re probably going to want to Instagram to your heart’s content. In this case, invest in a waterproof phone cover – rain, or beer, is going to damage your smartphone otherwise. Once you start losing battery, there are various charging points that you can use to juice up. Oh, and don’t forget to connect to the free Wi-Fi!

Wind-Up Torch

The problem with tents is that they all look so alike. It’s hard enough finding your tent in a standard campsite, let alone in a sea of festival-goers. Plan one: decorate your tent absurdly so it stands out from the rest. Plan two: take a wind-up torch that fits nicely in your bag, so you can find your way back in the middle of the night without taking your leg off on a guy rope and crashing through someone else’s tent.


You will need to take enough money with you to get you through the weekend, but don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. Split your money up into multiple stashes, just in case the worst happens. Under-clothing money belts are a great option too.

Empty Water Bottle

Bring an empty water bottle to stay hydrated. You can buy bottles of water on-site, of course, but it’s a waste of money, when there are drinkable water taps dotted around V Festival. If it actually ends up sunny, you will definitely want this in your backpack.


To get to V Festival, there are so many options, depending on your budget. Of course, if you’re flying, this could be the most convenient option for you, if you live extremely far away from the festival grounds. Otherwise, there are coaches that run to V Festival from all across the country.


Food at festivals is invariably expensive. Try to cut costs by packing snack food that’s not going to go off in your bag. If you can off-set the cost of festival grub, while lining your stomach with nosh for a day heavy with alcohol, you’re doing yourself a favour.
