It’s festival season and we’ve been in and out of a lot of festivals this Summer, with lots more to go… oh how spoilt we are in this beautiful City we call London! We have gathered up some of our must-have essentials to share with you, so you can get well equipped before heading out to a field and jamming to your favourites tunes.

Kitvision Bluetooth Selfie Stick


No need to bother the person next to you with ‘Can you please take a photo’ then awkwardly saying thanks, great photo (when it’s really not). Get your hands on the

Kitvision Bluetooth Selfie Stick, it has an extension poll (110cm), which lets you get more into your selfies. It also has a wireless Bluetooth shutter button, so no need to be worried about losing the shutter button, we all know how easy that can be after a few drinks…

Divoom Airbeat-10 


Sometimes all you want to do is chill in your tent with friends or on the grass away from the stage, and with the Divoom Airbeat portable speakers you can also listen to your music in style. The speaker allows you to stream your music wirelessly via Bluetooth and its splash-proof feature and portable design makes it ideal for the outdoors.

Pebble Smartstick Plus


We all know how upsetting it can be when your phone runs out of battery, with no access to an electric socket, and we all know how likely that will happen at a festival. Go prepared and pack yourself one of these portable chargers. The pebble smartstick plus has enough power to fully charge one phone, and give another a small boost too! (2800mAh of power). It comes with 3 different charging adaptors, so you can certainly share the love (if you choose to do so), a nifty carry sock and a USB charging cable.

Paul Mitchell Dry Wash


Camping at a festival with no access to showers and the fear of greasy hair to deal with? Then get your hands on the Paul Mitchell Dry Wash. The dry wash is ultra-fine and colourless and the formula won’t leave any residue to revive lifeless hair. So bye bye limp hair and hello volume boost and fresher smelling hair. It comes in a handy 50ml size, so light and small enough to pack in your make-up bag.
