As news reports fly in that the Isle of Wight festival is underwater, we are reassured that the Great British summertime has arrived!
Hardcore festival goers may not have their spirits dampened by the rain, but here are a few waterproof festival essentials which will keep everything else dry. Happy festivalling!
Kind of an essential if you want to survive a festival weekend. This good looking little tent is easy to assemble, easy to take down and the bright colours will mean your temporary abode will be easily identifiable when you’re stumbling back to bed. Warning: This is not a real Tipi, please do not light a fire in the middle.

You can fit a surprising amount into this little cylinder and it is great for keeping your valuables and fiddly items all in one place. It is also waterproof so any accidental spillages or precipitation will not be disastrous.

If water damage to your smart phone would ruin your festival and your bank balance, then one of these is a no brainer. You will still have full functionality of your phone including calls, texts and camera, but without the worry of the weather. These bad boys are designed to keep your phone dry at up to19m under water, so even if the campsite and all your possessions are floating away, at least you know you will be able to ring the lifeboat...or your dad.
