  1. My useful packing tip which never lets me down is to have a supply of charity bags (piled up at your door) to help you cope through the festival(s) particularly when rain strikes. Good for storage of wet or dirty clothes, but also good for a clean surface (rare at Glasto) in or near the tent when eating, sitting on the ground if muddy, or trying to sort items in your tent in limited space. Clever recycling for items that otherwise take space by your front door. Charities never collect them up, unless filled.
