It’s that time of the year where everyone is off to a field (or a beach) to listen to some good tunes and spend who knows how many hours trying to erect a tent. To help you out on your festival venture, Vada has come up with a list of five gadgets that will help you survive the wilderness and make the most of your experience (even if you can’t put up a tent).

  1. Thermos Cherry Blossom Stainless Steel Hydration Bottle, 530ml £19.95

Okay so a thermos bottle is a pretty standard item, but when you’re getting something that keeps drinks cool for 12 hours and is covered in cherry blossom – you really can’t complain. Plus you can also purchase the matching food jar.

2. Kavson Besiter Eclipse Charger from £10.99


This really is charger of the year. Starting from just £10.99, it has one of the most powerful batteries available, which means no more dead phones. It can charge iPhone 6S up to 5 times and a Samsung Galaxy S7 up to 3 times over. The power bank has a maximum 2.1A output which means that devices such as tablets will charge incredibly fast. You can even charge the Eclipse and your phone at the same time. And for those of you who like a bit of choice in life, it comes in two colours.

  1. Thermos Stainless King Food Flask, 470ml £17.99

You’ve got a drinks flask, so naturally you need a food jar. If one cherry blossom coated thermos is more than enough for you, compliment it with this King Food Flask. It holds 470ml and keeps food hot for 7 hours and cold for 9 hours. So if you’re fussy about the temperature of your meal or just want an easy access light weight container, this is the one.

4. Midland ER300 Radio £59.99

You’re probably thinking you can just borrow a radio from a friend and you could, but it likely wouldn’t come with all the safety features this one has. The ER300 features a torch, USB power bank and ultrasonic dog whistle. And if you’re not experiencing an SOS situation, you can listen to one of the loudest radios on the market, in between listening to the festival tunes. The music will not stop.

  1. Minipresso Portable Espresso Machine £39.95

And lastly for those of you who just cannot survive without your morning, afternoon and all other times of day coffees – take this handpowered espresso machine on your travels. It is the perfect gift and companion for coffee lovers away from home and it even comes with a built in cup and spoon.
