You might be a seasoned festival-goer or you might be just about to pop your music festival cherry - doesn't matter - read our festivals survival guide!
We're here to help you make the most of the summer festivals. And our announcers have plenty of advice to give too!
SURVIVING THE WEATHER
Who would have thunk it? The Boy Scouts were right: Be Prepared! Make sure you glance at the weather forecast and then dress appropriately.
And bring sunscreen - no matter what the weather!
Cal Wilson Nova 100 "Wear comfortable shoes. Bring a jumper. Do I sound like your mum yet?"
Monty National Drive Show "Wear flat, comfortable shoes, put a cardigan in your bag for night time"
Dylan Lewis Nova 100 "Essentials - sunblock, cheap sunnies (in case you lose them), long top you can tie around your waist (you'll be grateful at the end of the day)."
Ryan Fitzgerald - Fitzy Nova 91.9 'Great weight-loss program is to wear a woollen jumper in the boiler room. You’ll shed 5kg halfway through Dizzee Rascal's set." Whippy Nova 1069 "Guys – Get your shirt off and get as sweaty as you can, then rub your sweaty stinky body all over random chicks! They love it! Girls – The shorter your shorts the better and don’t bother wearing shoes, you’ll only have to carry them later anyway and if it starts to rain get involved in mud throwing!"
Nat Nova 93.7 "A sombrero may seem like an hilarious idea in the morning, but by nightfall it’s a pain in the ass ..."
Shane Lowe Nova 91.9 "Bring spare T-shirts ... for some reason guys seem to lose theirs at festivals. I can only imagine how grateful they will be when you point out to them that it's missing and that you have a spare one.
SURVIVING THE TOILETS
There are few things more manky that the portable toilets at the end of a music festival. Take some antiseptic gel or wipes (or eat some greasy fried chicken beforehand) if you're a bit of a germ freak.
Hans Nova 93.7 "If you’re a bloke and choose to skip the toilet queues by going behind a tent somewhere, make sure you’ve got a good exit point if you get caught. And always go with the wind, not into it."
Cal Wilson Nova 100 "Take loo paper"
Monty National Drive Show "Hold off from going to the toilet as long as possible, once you break the seal it is hard work."
Dan from the Action Battle Team Nova 93.7 "If you're a dude, find the urinals. Dudes wait for ages at port-a-loos, but you can bet good dollars that somewhere there's a demountable cabin with a huge trough on the walls. there's never a queue. walk in, urinate, leave. it works every time. even if it's in the opposite corner of the festival to the main stage, that fifteen minute walk is way better than the waiting in line for your own dank little cubicle. plus, you find 30!"
Matt from the Action Battle Team Nova 93.7 "Every festival has "secret toilets". They are a Narnia land of clean, empty, toilet-paper filled heaven. Find these toilets early. Abuse them all night. Don't reveal their location to ANYBODY." SURVIVING DEHYDRATION
It's sunny, the day is long and you've probably had a skin full of dehydrating liquid refreshments. The solution is simple... water. Drink it. Drink it often and drink lots of it.
Ryan Shelton National Drive Show "An obvious tip that is always banged on about is to keep your fluids up, drink lots of water. MY tip to coincide with that is to never, under any circumstances go topless wearing a camel-pack back pack with a tube that feeds you water from your bag. I don't care how convenient it is, you'll look like a tool. No one is THAT thirsty that they must have a constant flow of water."
Kate Langbroek Nova 100 "Water, water, water! And find the girls toilet with the shortest queue."
Maz National Nights "Hydrate, go with a good group, make a Festival playlist for the trip in, make sure you have a dance in the Silent Disco, never eat the hot chips and personalised T-shirts will never go out of fashion, unlike fluoro."
Jarrod Walsh Nova 91.9 "Don't drink too much! You could end up married by the end of the last set ... to another dude."
James Kerley National Nights "Chewing gum cash, poncho, water."
You came with 15 of your besties and an hour later you're wandering around wondering where the f...estival they are! Don't rely on the mobile phone network either. Pick one meeting point and stick to it.
Dylan Lewis Nova 100 "Don't spend your whole time arranging to meet people in stupid places. You'll end up missing things you want to see."
George Nova 106.9 "Don’t lose your friends. You’ll be lonely and look like a loser. If you’re insistent on going walk about for a bit make sure your mobile phone carrier isn’t the most popular. That way if you get lost, you can contact your friends using your phone! No flares necessary."
Dean Nova 93.7 "A flare gun is essential for those moments when you’ve lost your friends in the mosh pit, nothing says ‘I’m over here’ like a potentially lethal fire hazard."
SURVIVING THE TRIP HOME
It's been a big day out - hey, that's probably where they got the name from! - and you're exhausted. Make sure you've got a lift home organised and that you've saved some of your energy to make it out the gates.
Dylan Lewis Nova 100 "Don't peak too early."
Nathan Nova 93.7 "A stranger is a friend you haven’t met yet... Be nice to everyone, they could be giving you a lift home when you’re stranded."
Shaun McManus Nova 93.7 "Go hard from the get go, if you make it, you make it, if you don’t, call your mum."
Thanks for listening. Good night.
