The heavens have opened up at last which can only mean one thing - it's festival season! As much as we love dancing in music tents until the early hours, losing our shoes in the mosh pit and singing along to all the classics, there is one bad thing about going to festivals - the packing! How do you make sure you cater for all types of weather, avoid over-packing and still look decent? Well people look no further than yours truly. We have dedicated a whole section of our site to key festival looks making it as easy as pie.
Save the packing and get two tops for the price of one with the Polka Dot Reverse T-shirt; disguise those bleary eyes from the world in the Dwaine sunglasses; hide that unkempt head of hair under the You Dawg Cap; keep all your belongings safe in the eye catching Jazzy Jeff Bag; go wild in the pyramid tent with your own Triangle Necklace; spread you musical madness with the Music Makes Me Smile Badge Pack and stay cool but look hot in the Skull Dress.
Look instantly dapper no matter how little you have washed in the Oaf Polo shirt; never let your feet go cold from camping in the cigarette socks; don't bother washing your hair - just hide it under the Dash Cap instead; stick two fingers up to the rain with the Rainbows are Shit tote bag and tell everyone exactly how you are feeling with the Touch It badge pack.
Already feeling more prepared? Well here are some more festival necessities the Oaf team picked to make your 2010 festival experience the best in a lifetime. Sleep in comfort in a Winnebago; be prepared for a huge downfall no matter what the forecast with a pair of frog wellingtons and PVC poncho; don't share your sleeping bag with anyone when you have your own Selk all-in-one sleeping bag suit instead; talking of all-in-ones have you seen the amazing animal costumes from Kigu? Indulge in the ultimate festival snack in the form of a giant Yorkshire Pudding topped off with a 2 litre bottle of Strongbow and kit yourself with your very own portable toilet in the form of a Ploo.
Top performances on this years festival circuit for us include Rolf Harris shaking his wobble board at Bestival, punk poppers Weezer and Blink 182 headlining Sunday at Reading Festival, Grace Jones showing us what she's got at London's Love Box and Wavves playing at Shoreditch Parks 1-2-3-4 festival.
So are any of you going to festivals worth telling us about? Share the love.
