So you’ve got your festival ticket and are all set to go. As much as we all hope and pray for festivals in the sunshine, the reality is it’s not bleeding Coachella. We live in Ireland, so let’s park those groovy guides that will give us all kidney infections and dress for the weather!

First off, let’s get booted. Even if you do luck out with the weather, you’re still going to want maximum foot protection! Sports Direct are stocking these super cute Kangol short wellies at the moment for a total steal.


Kangol Short Ladies Wellies €13.20


Or you can go for a full length boot with these gorgeous Briers butterfly wellies, also from Sports Direct. You do have the option of going all out on a pair of Hunters but personally, I can’t justify my footwear being worth more than my festival ticket!

Briers Butterfly Ladies Wellington Boots €29.99



From Penneys, these very cute scarves can be used as a wrist or neck accessory, or for hiding that morning-after hair with a chic twist; available in a polka dot or blue stripe pattern.

If you need to step the concealment up a notch, Penneys also have these marl grey baseball caps, great for hiding in style until you make it to the showers or a mirror!

And to cover up those peepers, Next Ireland have an amazing collection of sunglasses at the moment ranging from €15 to €150. One of our faves are these bang on trend cat eye shaped glasses in gorgeous tortoiseshell. Check out their range if you can – it’s well worth a peep.

Okay, we know it’s a kids backpack, but this is just so fabulous! We do love a flamingo print as you know, and this little pack, also from Next Ireland, has a side pocket for drinkies and an insulated inner pocket for keeping your stuff cool on the move.
