To Fail to Prepare is to Prepare to Fail


Planning is second nature when preparing for a camping festival, but people seem to underestimate the importance of proper organisation when it comes to day festivals. You should still consider the essentials in order to successfully rave the day away, so we’ve compiled a list of everything you’ll need to make the most of your time at Colour Clash 🌈


Long term, SPF is the best way to keep your skin healthy. Short term, it’ll stop you from getting sunburn. It’s a no-brainer, really.


It pays to be practical. And that isn’t to say you have to sacrifice your festival outfit! Being in the middle of a massive field will expose you to the harshest of any of the elements, so grab a clear poncho/a cute fleece just in case.

Bucket Hat

Aside from a liberal application of SPF, another suitable form of sun protection is a hat. Bucket hats are super trendy and perfect for festival season, so you’re even more likely to wear it. Keep an eye out for some at our stalls dotted around the Colour Clash site!

Wet Wipes

Wet wipes are handy at any festival, but you might find them extra useful when you’re covered in colour paint 😉

(Biodegradable) Body Glitter

Festivals are the only socially acceptable time to douse yourself in glitter, so why not jump on that? However, it’s worth considering the environment and using the biodegradable stuff.

Film Camera

Sure, you can take pictures on your phone, but you’ll want to preserve your battery. A film camera will provide you with much funkier photos, too!
