Festival Must haves ~ Three Festival Pack

 Thank you to THREE and the #makeitright campaign for making this conversation possible.

A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of attending a festival in Lithuania, I have never been to a festival before but always wanted to go. I was also very fortunate to be contacted by THREE a while back and wanted to share their #makeitright campaign.

One thing I know personally is how much it sucks when you lose or misplace your phone. It’s funny how I can’t seem to function without my mobile it literally has everything I need. Knowing Three has a Rescue App which you can use to back up your photos taken with your phone takes a load off my mind.

A Little bit about the campaign below

Three have created these packs as part of their #makeitright campaign, which sees them (and a fluffy puppet named Jackson) taking a stand against everything that sucks about the mobile industry.
These packs have been put together with Three Rescue, their #makeitright insurance offering, which pledges to protect existing phones and also replace broken or missing handsets within 24 hours, to make sure you no longer have to wait a week to get your life back if disaster does strike.

For those who are festival experts or more experienced festival goers I am sure they have a lift of things that they can never go without. This was my first time and it was only for the day and did not require spending the night. I thought the following items sent to me by the #makeitright campaign are the ultimate must have items.

 

 Portable charger – On this blog I have mentioned time and again the importance of having your portable charger with you. Gatherings like festivals don’t usually have charging stations readily available unless you are in the VIP section (so am told). I was sent this cute little portable charger which saved the day when my battery run out, I had it in hand to charge my phone and the beauty is that it is so small it fit right in my crossover bag. Though I love it I could only get one full 100% charge out of it before it died.

 

 Water – Everybody knows at concerts or festivals you will be exercising your right to scream your vocals out alongside your favourite musicians. Obviously for me in Lithuania I could only vocalise to the songs which I knew and were in English but I found myself in need of refreshment and my water bottle was right by me. Those who know me know I don’t like water so I always had in juice or some form of fruit so I can drink it easily.

Portable speakers – It was quite funny that they included a portable speaker when a festival goer would be blasted with music from powerful speakers but then I realised sometimes you just needed your own music with your friends during those breaks in between musicians. Though I did not use the portable speaker at festival I am using it daily at home when I am cleaning my apartment of just want to listen to my music without headphones.

Headphones  – I can not emphasise enough how much I love having headphones with me. I travel a lot, going to work, visiting friends, shopping or even visiting my family or Boo and all these times I have my headphones on. I use my headphones a lot at work when I just need to concentrate on my work instead of office gossip. šŸ™‚

Waterproof poncho ~ Festivals in the UK are famous for having the lovely British weather (mean rains all the time) so having a waterproof poncho could come me very handy for those wetter days. I love that Three put this in a little ball to make it convenient to carry it around easily. The best part since it’s white in colour it goes with every outfit šŸ™‚

Selfie stickok now hear me out! I am not the greatest fan of selfie sticks but places like festivals they come in really handy and I think a must have for such places. There is always a place and time for everything and I think for festivals selfie sticks are ok. The #makeitright campaign included in the gift bag a huge purple hand (selfie stick hand) which I think is so cool and since I love purple its my favourite item.

pouches– this is such a handy item to have, moving between stages and campsites you something light to carry important items. I am thinking somewhere to put your phone, money even keys.

Phone protection ~ Apart from me new phone I am yet to own a gadget that I haven’t dropped a few times. Three thought ahead and included a waterproof phone case and phone screen protector. It is a must these days to have such handy items. At most festivals its muddy so putting your phone in a water (or mud) proof case makes at most sense.

I had so much fun playing around with the Three rescue pack and I think it is nice of them to think of their customers first. I think the phone insurance is awesome idea even more so the rescue app to back up your photos.

What are some of your must have festival items?

Disclaimer: I was sent the aforementioned items in exchange for an honest review, regardless all opinions are 100% my own.

  • Girl I’m not a fan of selfie sticks, but my sister bought one and its super helpful. So enjoy it and have fun.

    • I intend to Sacha, it has come in handy

  • Although, I have yet to attend a music festival. the list sounds about right! I definitely would not want to be caught without access to my phone. Water is a must, especially in an outdoor setting and as a blogger/ social media enthusiast, a selfie stick is a must as well! Thanks for sharing!

    • It’s always good to be prepared for the unexpected and glad a mobile and network provider is also doing for us.

  • I agree on the water 100%!! It’s a must-have for me wherever I go and especially when you will be outdoors all day at a festival. Great post!!

    • Thanks, I am not big on water but I know I need it some was very essential to have

  • I use our selfie stick for photos since it has a remote control. It works perfect! The music festival sounds like fun!

    • I am starting to love the selfie stick propaganda even more, no longer are people left out of the photos

  • I love our selfie stick! I used to hate the idea behind them, but ours has come in handy SO many times!

    • I am there with you, loving them now

  • NYC SingleMom

    I dont know if attending a festival is my future but this list works for traveling or just hanging out in the park. I love the idea of taking portable speakers with you so your companions can all enjoy the music or you are tied to your earphones all the time.

  • Rosey

    Selfie sticks have that stigma attached to them and I don’t know why. I think they’re fun (and I’m not even a big selfie girl)! šŸ™‚

  • Like who goes anywhere without a selfie stick… šŸ˜› Lol It’s a permanent thing in my handbag.

  • These definitely sounds like great items for a festival. We have an arts & jazz fest locally, and many of these things I always bring with me.

  • This is a great list! Definitely need everything on here. I also always have some ibuprofen with me in case of an unexpected headache!

  • I’ve been too a few festivals and yes for WATER! Portable charger and water proof poncho are a must too!

  • I’m not really big into selfie stick but portable charger is a must for me. I Like going in any festival with my family.

  • Dia

    Water and portable charger for sure. I also like to travel with vitamin c lol all those people keep your immune system in good shape lol

  • Water, water and more water and a couple of candy bars, I don’t take pictures-I let those with me handle that and yes a selfie stick would come in handy.

  • I was just telling my husband that I needed to find way to save my stuff if something like this happened. All the things they gave you must have made your festival so much more about fun than about worry! That’s always nice!

  • On it with the phone protection- rained at Isle of Wight and my phone just died. SO. BLOODY. ANNOYING.

  • I’ve never been to any sort of festival so I wouldn’t know the first thing to bring, so this is helpful! I’ve never tried a selfie stick, I’ve always thought they were kind of silly but that’s because I rarely appear in photos. But, so many love them!

  • The portable charger is a must have when you are out for something like this for the day. And of course water. I can see how the selfie stick would be handy in this case.

  • Selfie Stick is a must!!! I cant wait for my next festival and to use my selfie stick!

  • Watrproof poncho definitely makes sense! So often we are getting rained on at festivals!

  • I agree on the portable charger and selfie stick. Some people make fun of them. But I hate being left out of pictures because I’m the one holding the camera and taking pictures of everyone else. I also hate selfie arm, so selfie stick is better. And a portable charger is a must have. I have used mine a lot!

  • Losing your phone really is the worst! This sounds like a great security plan to have in place. I love your list. It’s been a little while since I’ve been to a festival but they sure are fun!

  • While I have never been to a music festival as it is not my thing! I will be sharing your post with friends who go to almost every event and festival there is!
