Headed to a festival this summer? Or perhaps you know someone who is? MyMemory have everything you need to master the festival season, including power banks, headphones, camping gear, and more.
During the summer months, the UK is filled with a number of festivals that see thousands of you congregate into fields to set up camp. In your excitement for a weekend full of spilt beer, lack of showers, and sunburnt shoulders, it’s easy to forget fundamental items which will make your time at the festival more enjoyable. No matter whether you’re going to a day festival with your friends or spending time with your family for the weekend, you’ll still be wanting a fuss-free event.
So to stop this from happening, we’ve put together a list of simple items designed to make your music-filled weekend more enjoyable.
Portable Power Bank
Although most festivals now offer a charging facility, a portable power bank will help keep you connected without having to queue for long periods of time or miss your favourite act. As a reliable gadget, power banks are designed to provide an easy method to charge up your devices, offering a much better alternative to a costly charging station.

Not being connected to the internet sucks. It sucks even more when you can’t share your festival experience online. How else can you prove you met Dave Grohl whilst queuing for the portable loo? While some music festivals may offer free public Wi-Fi, bad connection and thousands of attendees flooding the network may put a dampener on the Instagram post you’re wanting to share. Having a Data SIM for your smartphone will allow you to get online wherever you are, at any point of the festival. Simply pop the SIM card straight into your device and you are connected to the internet! Data is usually valid for a decent few months, so why not take it to multiple festivals, or save it for next years by topping it up online.

Camping is a fundamental part of the festival experience. However, camping with thousands of other festival goers may not be so pleasant. A sleeping pad or mattress will help to cushion you for a good night’s sleep and make the experience as comfortable as it could possibly be. This item will keep you off the damp ground and provide elevation from the hard, and possibly bumpy, grass floor.

The Naturehike Ultralight sleeping mat with built-in cushion has a height of 30mm when inflated. This ensures that you stay off the cold ground which keeps you warm and dry. The egg structure of the mat also ensures that you are kept comfortable.
It might seem strange to list headphones as a festival essential. However, taking a good quality pair could solve the problem of a good night’s sleep and essentially fill travelling to and from the site slightly more bearable. Invest in a pair of headphones that does both, reduces unwanted noise whilst doubling up as a source of music.
On-site with thousands of other campers, basic noise cancelling headphones may not always do their job of stopping loud noises. Don’t let the loud music and late night parties get in the way of you getting some shut-eye and put on a pair of headphones to listen to your favourite music. At least that way you can try to fall asleep to in-tune lyrics, instead of listening to Steve’s out-of-tune vocal from the tent next door.
