List of essentials for oxegen festival?

Im going to be going to my first festival this year and its going to be oxegen. Im going to be camping there aswell but im pretty clueless about what i should bring. So looking for some veterans out there to let me know what the essentials to bring to a festival would be please.

Martin answers:

Wellies (depending on the forecast), bring food with you as a decent meal at oxegen will cost around 10 euro, changes of clothes, bring about three or four ponchoes as they tend to rip and you can sell any you have spare lol. Bin bags for sitting on the wet ground, as much drink as you can carry, a cheap tent that you have no intention of bringing home with you, buy one of those timetable things that they sell at the place, they’re expensive but you won’t miss any of the bands you want to see. Toilet roll, babywipes, a torch is handy for when it turns dark. Try to camp at the top of the hill where it’s less mucky and maybe bring a flag tie it to a tent pole and have it above your tent. Makes it a lot easier to find, it’s easy to get lost in the campsite as nearly all the tents look the same. Hope this helps!!

What are essentials for a boarding camp?

I’m 14, and I’m going to a boarding camp this summer for 2 weeks. Please be specific and list things that I need for boarding camp.

Martin answers:

Check the rules for your camp – many of them forbid cell phones and other personal electronics.
You’ll need a good mix of long and short pants, long and short sleeved shirts, at least one jacket, plenty of underwear and socks, towels and washcloths, toiletries.
Actually, many camps supply a good packing list – ask yours!

6 day camp essentials?

I know the general stuff, like bedding and stuff, but what are the things that arent on the list I should bring? We’ll be sleeping in cabins with beds and toilets.

Martin answers:

550 cord, you can pick it up at any army surplus story. This may be one of Gods greatest inventions. It has a million and one uses. You never know when you’ll need to a piece of rope or stringe. This is both.
Also, make sure you have something for an upset stomach. Something to stop nausea and vomitting. Most likely the cabin you will be staying in will be on well water, some people don’t adjust to pure water, even a small amount of parasites is enough to make some people sick.
I will usually pass in a day or so but something to help it along wouldn’t be bad.
