Wellington boots - Dunlop Mens Half Wellingtons



What's a festival without Wellington boots? These Welington boots from Dunlop are ideal for any outdoor environment and has a molded outsole for increased grip. At half the height of the standard Wellington boots, it is easy to slip on

Kicksavers - Mudsavers overshoes



These might not win any fashion prizes but for those that can't stand the thought of wearing Wellington boot, these Mudsaver overshoes are fantastic at protecting those new kicks you’ve just purchased and keeping them looking box fresh.

Made out of clear transparent tough plastic, the Mudsavers still show your footwear, so you won’t look completely uncoordinated. The covers easily slip on and off and tie up securely with adjustable draw string toggles to keep the water and mud out. They are fully reusable, and no matter the weather at the festival site, will keep your shoes free of dirt and water.

Battery pack - Energizer Max Portable Power Bank



Traipsing round the entire festival site searching for a plug socket and finding a never-ending queue snaking in wait is nobody’s ideal way of spending precious time at a festival. Eliminate the need to find power by cleverly taking your own. The Energizer Max power bank has two USB ports to pop in your phones cable and power your iPad or tablet at the same time.

Pass-Through charging enables up to two phones and the power bank to be charged overnight and ready for the next morning. Finished with a smooth texture the stylish black and blue power bank is perfect for demanding use throughout the festival and beyond. A worthy investment. 

Portable waterproof bluetooth speaker - UE Boom



Make your tent/campsite and life and soul of the party with the super powerful UE Wonder BOOM that will project some powerful bass and keep the fun alive. The immersive bass sound is provided thanks to its frequency range of 80 Hz to 20 kHz.

The lightweight wireless speaker connects via Bluetooth and is fully waterproof and shockproof, and easy-to-clean, so even if it gets a drink spilt over it won’t matter at all. A good battery life of 10 hours will mean it doesn’t need to be charged regularly, so music can be enjoyed for longer.
