Synopsis

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR FESTIVAL-GOERS



Which festival is right for you? What should you wear? What should you pack? How much glitter could you possibly need?



With the answer to every festival questions, The Festival Book is your go-to survival guide. It is packed full of hilarious anecdotes, a guide to the very best festivals on offer and tips and tricks to get you festival ready. And if you want to learn to play the nose-flute or attend a wedding conducted by a priestess called Glenda, well, that's all here too.



With sections on:



A Short History of Festivals - from the Pilton, Pop, Folk & Blues Festival (now more commonly known as Glastonbury) to the revival of the communal rock festival experience in the 90s.



Festival Tribes - You're looking for self-improvement? Latitude offers drama classes and qualifications. More interested in food? Try Wilderness. Forest walking, foraging and wild swimming more your thing? Green Man's the one for you.



Festival Fashion - Florals, leather, a onesie, full fancy dress - all will do, but don't forget your wellies! Includes a fool proof packing list with everything you're likely to forget.



Anecdotes - From getting married at Glastonbury, to being diagnosed with trench foot, to being attacked by a cow - it's all here!



Tips and Tricks - How to get in for free, how to find your way back to your tent in the dark and a bluffer's guide to legendary performances (you remember Oasis in 1994, right?)
