Electric Picnic Checklist

For those of you fortunate enough to be heading off to Ireland's biggest music festival this weekend, I thought I would write up a quick checklist/survival kit to help you all with your packing. 
These essentials have been derived from my experience of 'The Picnic' last year and I will be eagerly re-packing them all tomorrow to do it all over again this year!


1. Tickets & Money. (Most importantly)
2. Rucksack, Tent, Sleeping bag, Camping mat, torch.
3. Phone & Camera (Fully charged)
4. Clothes for all seasons.(It is Ireland after all!)
5. Wellies & Knee-high socks.
6. Raincoat & scarf.
7. Hat & Sunglasses/suncream
8. (Girls)~ MakeUp, face wipes, toothbrush/paste & dry shampoo.
9. Neurofen & plasters. (Just incase!)
10.Snacks & Alcohol! (No glass) (Coolbox optional)

* Very important to bring a care free attitude & sense of humour as the festival is jam-packed with random fun-filled & mucky moments! :-)


The most important thing to remember when going to any camping festival is not to take anything you can't afford to loose ~the less you have,the less you have to worry about! 
If you do happen to forget something it's not the end of the world, the campsite is well kitted out with shops, food/clothes stalls, ATMs and phone-charging stations.

Wishing you all a brilliant & safe weekend!
