Be prepared – take your toothbrush and toothpaste, as well as any medical, beauty, sun care or female necessities – as well as a hat, insect repellent, bite cream and other first aid bits and pieces.
Take some water – and don’t get dehydrated by the sun or get heatstroke.
Keep your friends close – and don’t get lost; it might take hours to find them again and you’ll miss out on lots of interesting stuff and get stressed while you’re looking.
Know your location - where you’re aiming for and where the emergency services are.
Make sure you dress for the occasion – with our weather, take wellies, rain gear, thermals and a wartime spirit, as well as a sun hat, shorts, maxi, whatever you feel comfy in.
Be prepared to queue – both for the toilets and to get in or out of the site; also for the food and drink stations.
And as far as making sure you’re festival-savvy in terms of your motor trip there and back:
Be prepared – have your vehicle serviced beforehand, check your tyre treads and pressures as well as your spare, especially if it’s a long journey to get there – we don’t want you stuck by the roadside missing your favourite band. You could even take a spare car key in case one gets lost or the battery runs out. Know where your vehicle handbook is so you can check the fundamentals if you need to.
Take some water – check all the fluids in your car including oil and water, as well as windscreen wash in case the obligatory mud splashes too much; you could also take a windscreen shade so you don’t burn your hands on the wheel when you get back in to drive (you can see we’re covering all eventualities here!)
Keep your friends close – Have the contact details handy for your breakdown recovery service, any accident assistance support service and the FOXY Lady Drivers Club website, just in case.
Know your location – make sure you have a map, directions and/or working sat nav, as well as enough petrol and money put by for the journey home or enough credit on your card.
Make sure you dress for the occasion – even when you’re driving, make sure you’re kitted out in case it’s pouring and you have to change a tyre, fix a tow rope or other such practical considerations; also you can get burnt from the sun through glass so put on some sun cream in the remote event the sun’s shining!
Be prepared to queue – for petrol if you’re trying to get some near the site, if you forget to fill up beforehand; or to get out of the site ready for your journey home.
And – most of all HAVE A FUN, FOXY TIME!
