Summer has arrived, and with it a myriad of muddy festivals. There are some things you simply can’t turn up without – think wellies and dry hair spray. And then there are others that can leave at home in your bathroom like towels, and a hairdryer. Here Erica Crompton rounds up her top five festival buys…

Travel Perfume
Oh boy can it get smelly in festivals! You may recall an insane lack of toilet tissue, and no space for a shower other than your friend shaking a can of Carling open, over your head. Freshen up morning and night with a budget and travel friendly version of Molecule 01 fragrance from Escentric Molecules. It blends with your natural pheromones to create an individual scent that is unique to you – helping your lost mates spot where you are a mile off. £27, cultbeauty.co.uk

Dry Hair Spray
With Mark Hill’s new Big Night Out range you’ll never need to resort to pulling all your hair up in your hat. For festivals try Dirty Little Stop Out! Volumising Dry Shampoo which will zap greasy roots without having to wash, shampoo and condition. All you need to worry about, is what colour you do your hair now. Pink? Green? Or maybe a “hairs stood on their ends after a night of electro punk” do? From £6.29 for 200ml at Boots.com

Umbrella Hat
Whacky wear works at festivals and will win you points with your friends for providing a talking paint around the campfire. With so many beards, facial tattoos and sometimes even stilts and Penny Farthings to compete with, I say go for broke! Try a novelty umbrella hat that operates like a bright idea bulb hovering over your head – it’ll keep rain at bay and your now coiffured hair intact, too. £3.12 from novelties-direct.co.uk

Wellies

My cherry red Hunter wellies work well for every sundress I own – yes, the lace, floral, nautical and even tribal smocks. They also look great with jeans and, if I was Kate Moss, hotpants. The hardest part of my purchasing these this spring is not succumbing to Hipsterville and wearing them on the High Street. Try the tall red classics for a modern stamp in the mud! Buy today for a reduced price of £74.99 at cloggs.co.uk

Sleeping Bag Onesie
Your camping partner will never be able to nick the sleeping bag again with a sleeping bag onesie. Keep the warmth to yourself and cosy up with a SelkBag Classic Sleep Suit in a selection of “Get off my duvet!” primary colours. You can run around in it all night and, because it’s built for the outdoors, it willl keep you warm. Features include extra leg ventilation to keep you cool at night, an insulated collar and cord lock for extra warmth and even a little check storage pocket so that you can literally keep your valuables close to your heart. Priced at £98.99 from planetcamping.co.uk
