EXTRA TIPS

 

Avoid bringing your smartphone with you. There are too many chances that it will be stolen, no matter how careful you are. Instead, prefer the old ugly Samsung from 2009, hidden in your closet, that is still working for some mysterious reason. Yes, I hear you. What about the videos, pictures and memories? Well if you can’t afford to buy a new phone, don’t take the risk and bring a good old fashioned disposable camera.

Avoid bringing new and fragile clothes. You’ll ruin them for sure. Festivals are unpredictable and as you can read in the Testimonies articles, mud fights are very likely to happen right in front of you.

Prepare the food, alcohol (whatever you need) budget in advance. It is obviously better for your safety but also for your wallet.

Keep your money with you at all times. Nope, not in the tent. A tent is unfortunately too easy to open and no matter how friendly the camping people seem, some of them are total creeps.
