10 Tips For Surviving Glastonbury Festival 2014 In The Rain (And In Style)

24 June 2014 by


Oh noooo! After weeks of speculation that Glastonbury Festival 2014 was going to be a sunny affair, turns out it's going to rain. LOTS. There's set to be showers and sunshine tomorrow and persistent rain on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here's 10 tips for coping with the downpour...

1. Invest in actual farm wellies..

Skip the cute glitter booties, and high-street printed numbers and instead invest in a solid pair of thick farm wellies with lots and lots of grip on the bottom to avoid slipping over/losing a welly in the mud. 

2. And the kind of tent your dad would be a fan of

And pitch it properly. Take this from someone who once had to chase a pop-up tent down a hill after a gale.

3. Skip mascara and just opt for lipstick

If you're worried about panda eyes, then opt for a pared-down eye teamed with lips in whatever colour of the rainbow you fancy.


Not just for drying off after a downpour. Also great for blocking leaky tents.

5. Braids are best

Plaited updos are super chic, perfect to sleep in and will leave you with cool beachy waves when you take them out.

6. Bring a chair

Or a roll of bin bags to sit on: no muddy bum for you.

7. Skip thick knits for thin layers

A chunky Aran jumper will take FOREVER to dry if you drop it in the mud. Choose some lighter layers instead. Uniqlo is your BFF right now.

8. Take a waterproof

Translucent jackets let you show off your festi-fashion while keeping dry or opt for an oversized waterproof bomber in a fun print for Cara... just make sure it has a hood and pick a plastic wipe-clean fabric that won't absorb water. 

Topshop clear plastic mac and bomber, both £40.00

9. Put everything in its own plastic bag

That way if one thing gets muddy and wet, it won't seep into all your belongings.

10. Spare socks and underwear

Wet feet are just depressing.
