What to bring with you

What to pack

Festival packing can be a headache. There’s way too many things to consider! With just days to go until Boardmasters, it’s time to start packing those bags for the biggest party of the summer, so here’s a packing guide to make your pre-festival prep a bit less stressful!

Maybe it’s your first festival and you’re not sure what to take? Don’t worry, we’re here to help with our handy packing guide, letting you know everything you should (and shouldn’t) be taking with you…


✅ Your tickets. Make sure you have them either printed out or ready on your phone

✅ A reusable water bottle. Lots of you have been asking if you can bring single use bottles. We’d really rather you help us #LeaveOnlyFootprints and bring a reusable one.

✅ A GOOD quality tent. Let’s be honest, the weather hasn’t been great this Summer. Bring a good tent that’s not going to leak. Not a cheap, pop-up one.

✅ Sleeping bag, pillow and a torch.

✅ Clothes for all weathers. Wellies, boots, hoodies, rain jacket as well as your trainers etc. It gets cold here at night.

✅  Suncream.

✅ Contraception.

✅ Portable phone charged or book one with Charge Candy

✅ Your ID – which must be a drivers licence, passport or other PASS ID. It must be in date, and we don’t accept photocopies or pictures.
