When it comes to festival style, shoes maketh the man. Think practical. Boots or an old pair of kicks will not only have you looking every bit the festival veteran, they’ll also safeguard your toes in the mosh pit. And leave the sandals at home, no matter how good the forecast. Not convinced? Two words for you: festival toilets.
You know the drill: sunny when you set off, torrential downpours by lunch. Balmy summer afternoon? Arctic blasts by sundown. Which is why you’ll want to layer your outfits. T-shirts, sweatshirts and rain jackets are all lifesavers come monsoon time.
