Electric Picnic: 5 Festival Hacks

August 30, 2018

The biggest festival of the year is quickly approaching and I am so EXCITED!!! I will be there bright eyed and busy tailed on Sunday teaching yoga (of the detox kind ) while also calming the minds of my fellow festival goers. 


I have put together 5 of my top tips that have helped me make the most out of any festival I have been to (which is a lot) I hope they help you to! 





1:  Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!!  


I cannot stress the importance of hydration during a festival weekend and it is an easy thing to forget..... Think ahead and pack yourself some 1liter bottles of water that you can chug before going to sleep and as soon as you wake up - this can be the difference between a vicious hangover and just feeling a little off. It will also revive you and ensure that there are no lingering 5 day hangovers ruining your fun :)


2: Invest in the Basics:


  • Invest your money in good durable wellies, the chance of rain is always high in Ireland so you won't regret it if it starts to downpour. 

  • A tent with a porch - the rain was so bad one year that the whole tent got destroyed with our dirty clothes and shoes.  You can leave your boots and clothes in the porch and your sleeping area will stay reasonably clean.

  • Inflatable Mattress - if you really want to ensure a comfortable nights sleep this, for me, was a game changer - I can't sleep on the hard ground for three days in a row, it's just not enjoyable.  


3: . Keep loading on that SPF 


I know I sound like your  granny but it really is important.  Sleeping on the floor is hard enough, without factoring in crippling sunburn.
