Sleeping bag? Hand sanitizer? Rain poncho? Chances are, if you’ve ever been to a music festival, these items will have been lurking somewhere in your full-to-the-brim rucksack. Well, if you were organised, that is. Surprisingly, none of these items feature in a list of festival essentials. A survey conducted by Best Offers Bingo asked 1,000 people across the UK: ‘What is the one thing you can’t live without at a festival?’ The top ten responses were: 1) Music: 15.5% Well... obviously. 2) Alcohol: 11.4% Reading Festival simply wouldn’t be the same without the free bag of questionable alcohol on arrival now would it? 3) Water: 7.6% Yes. Slightly essential. Just slightly. 4) Toilet: 5.9% Get in, get out, and whatever you do, don’t look down. 5) Food: 5.3% Why is it that those curly fries taste so good after a long day of stage-hopping? 6) A tent: 3.7% Open air camping is absolutely not suitable for festivals. Don't try it. 7) Wet wipes: 3.3% Probably a safer bet than the showers. 8) Mobile phone: 3.1% A festival is no place for an iPhone. Got an old Nokia brick? Sorted. Nothing can destroy it. 9) Wellies: 2.9% It doesn’t matter if it’s muddy or not. No other shoes will cut it. 10) Toilet paper: 2% Stand outside the toilets with a roll of loo paper and you’ll instantly become everyone’s best friend. Magical stuff, toilet paper.
