Feuerhand Baby Special 276 LED Lantern

This is possibly the coolest retro led light we’ve seen. With its classic hurricane lantern look with modern LEDs seamlessly integrated without any of the bursting into flames issues of the originals. Available in many different colours. You can put 2 lithium-ion batteries (not included) in and charge it up over USB-C or 3 standard AA batteries.

Princeton Tec Helix Li Rechargeable LED Lantern

This is possibly the coolest futuristic led light we’ve seen! It looks like a little robot with it’s 4 fold out legs. It’s crammed full of some pretty smart tech too, with it’s dimmable white and red lights. The whole unit packs down into itself to use up even less space in your bag, and you can even take the lantern globe off and use it like a normal torch. It’s covered in hooks so you can be sure to find some way to get it where you want light. It’s rechargeable and IPX6 water rated, so doesn’t mind a bit of rain.

Coleman Octagon BlackOut

This is glamping wherever you pitch up and lay your head. The unique octagonal shape provides a 360° view and makes it the ultimate party pod for you and your friends to rest and play. Its blackout tech works really well at blocking out the morning sun, which is perfect for when you need to catch up from the night before. I love the way you can open the sections to get a really open, airy feel to the tent, the only disadvantage is that you have to go outside to close these up, so hopefully you don’t get caught out in a rainstorm. The bag is well-built too, with the functional addition of wheels so you can drag it back to your car.

Vango Lismore 450 tent package

A more traditional tunnel tent design, but crammed full of nifty features. From storm straps to help ride out the most unruly weather, and a very well thought out room configuration with a blackout bedroom, internal living space and a massive porch, this is a good option for anyone looking for a bit more space and variety of use. This package comes with the additional benefit of a tent footprint (a big groundsheet which goes under the tent) to really keep you dry and your tent lasting for years. If I was to be overly picky, the bag could do with being bigger, good luck trying to get this one packed away after a heavy weekend!

Coleman Supercomfort Sleeping 12cm Double Mat

I’m going to stick my neck out here and state, this is by far the most comfortable sleeping mat I’ve tried. It’s no lightweight camper mind, so be prepared to lug a large roll around. But if you value sleep and like me need a bit more comfort to recover from the hours on the dance floor, then this is most definitely a very good option.

Roll Up Oxford Bed

Soft and spongy alternative to an air bed. Traditional airbeds are typically pretty bouncy and noisy, so if you want to get a good nights recharge from all the dancing, then this is a very good option.

Vango Homestead Double Sleeping Bag

Whether heading to a festival or exploring the wild, the two-season sleeping bag is ideal for summer use between 4 – 20c, helping to keep the cosy but without being too warm.

Petromax 27L Cooler Backpack

This 27l cooler bag is just what you need to keep your beer stash cold for the weekend. Claiming to keep temp to a respectable fridge temperature of 8°C for up to 8 days, this is the pack you need to chill out this summer. Where this pack really excels is in its capacity, with the ability to hold 13 x 1-litre bottles plus a six-pack of beers. Now add in the other useful zipped pockets, the fact it’s a backpack so easy to lug from the car, and even includes a built-in bottle opener, we think this is almost unbeatable in the portable cooler box world.

If you’re planning on taking young children with you on your festival trip, then do yourself a favour and buy this! You’ll thank me later, as it’s possibly the best way to transport your camping stuff (you’ll need much more than you think with kids in tow). It’s also good at lugging tired kids around in once they have exhausted themselves trying to party like the big kids. This deluxe edition includes some nice extras like a cooler box and a sun cover. Its wide wheels and practical steering system make it perfect for festival mud baths or beach trips. It also folds down surprisingly well too.

Marshall Emberton II

Don’t be deceived by the size, this Bluetooth speaker really kicks. We loved it in our Christmas guide and had to include it here, as the perfect tool for some back at camp vibes after the sound systems have shut down. Small enough to pack away and loud enough to keep the party going!

Attitude Clothing – Dark Forest water bottle

Is there a more suitable bottle for taking to a festival. Perfect for putting all sorts of hot or cold drinks in (hint hint) the trippy mushroom vibe graphics put you in a messy festival mood.

Not this is what I call a camp coffee mug. It’s massive, insulated and leak-proof, so perfect for any festival mornings. Its insulation and lid keep everything hot or cold for hours. It’s the first mug style I’ve packed in a bag, and it’s not leaked, so kudos to that!

Stroodles Edible Spoons

Waste not want not, and one thing I certainly don’t want when I’m at a festival is washing up! So enter the Stroodles edible spoons. They tase and crunch much like raw pasta, but you will leave no trace, and after the skips of plastic spoons that get junked at every festival you’ll feel smug too!

%TNT Magazine% tnt festival 2024 36

Stroodles Edible Plates

Sticking with edible table wear for a moment, I introduce the plate that is made from wheat bran and as the name suggests is also totally edible. That’s right kids, you can eat your plate and spoon, leaving no traces at all the crappy noodles you managed to cook up at 3am. Being made of Bran, you can have any leftovers for breakfast!

I think I may have found the ultimate festival flex! These slimline pouches of boozy goodness are so good you will be the envy of the campsite. Nio offers customised selections or various pre-selected assortments which arrive in a letterbox friendly pack, perfect for slinging in your festival bag. If you are a proper festival slacker, you can even just tear the corner off and drink straight from the carton!

Brothers Premium Cider

This years official cider of Glastonbury Festival makes this a pretty acceptable addition to our festival booze. Cider is a great choice for sweaty afternoons in the fields. Lots of flavours to choose from, but be careful with their 7% pear cider which might be a bit punchy for all day drinking.

%TNT Magazine% tnt festival 2024 37

Hydravive rapid regeneration Electrolytes

Not just for hardcore athletes, these Electrolyte powder sachets are the secret weapon to fending off the morning after not listening to my advice about drinking pear cider all day! Get rehydrated and ready for the next sesh with these hydration boosting drink sachets.
