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. 🙂
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 🙂
Selfie stick – ok 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?
