Festival season is upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about all the essentials you’ll be packing up and taking with you… 

Whether you’re off to Glastonbury this week or you’re heading to your first European music festival later on this summer, here’s how to make major savings on the festival essentials you need with TOTUM! 


1. Tents - Halfords (15% off camping and outdoors in-store)


If you’re going to be camping, first on your list of festival essentials should be a good quality tent to keep you dry, warm and sheltered during your stay.

Whether you need a tent for one or you’re going to be sharing with a group of friends, you’ll find a wide selection of durable, waterproof festival tents at Halfords!

You can also shop camping chairs, stoves and more and can save a whopping 15% off camping and outdoor goods when you shop in-store

2. Camping equipment - Where Tomorrow (10% off)


From hammocks and sleeping bags to travel towels, you can find everything you need to make camping a breeze at Where Tomorrow.

If you’re attending a week-long festival, you’ll likely want to make sure your sleeping area is as comfortable as possible. To give yourself the best chance of getting a good night’s sleep (or at least a few hours anyway), why not invest in a blow up sleeping pad which provides extra cushioning beneath your sleeping bag?

Enjoy 10% off full-priced items at Where Tomorrow with your TOTUM discount. 

3. Vitamins and supplements - Myvitamins (55% off sitewide)


We all know festivals can take a toll on our bodies - minimal sleep, alcohol and living off fast-food will inevitably make you feel a little worse for wear!

To help alleviate any hangovers and to keep your energy levels up, be sure to pack some vitamins and supplements - you’ll thank yourself a few days into the festival. 

Stock up on all your essential supplements with Myvitamins and get up to 55% off sitewide! 

If you’re wondering which vitamins and supplements are the best to take to a festival, Myvitamins recommends 5-HTP, a naturally occurring amino acid that helps to produce serotonin, and multivitamins.

4. Toiletries - Boots (10% off with a Boots Advantage Card)


Showering may be out of the equation, but there are still a number of toiletries you’ll want to take to keep yourself feeling fresh and hygienic during the festival. 

From deodorant and toothpaste to dry shampoo and face wipes, you’ll find all of your festival toiletry essentials at Boots and can make the most of 10% off with your Boots Advantage Card

5. Portable phone charger - Currys (Big brand savings on TVs, laptops, tablets and more)


If you want to capture as many memories as possible by taking photos and videos on your phone, you’ll need to make sure it’s charged up and ready to go throughout your time at the festival. 

Taking a portable power bank is the best way to make sure your phone never runs out of charge - not only will you be able to take endless photos, you'll also have the peace of mind of being able to contact friends and family should you need to.

Make huge savings on tech when you shop at Currys.

6. Waterproof poncho - GO Outdoors (Up to 60% off sale + extra 10% off)


An emergency waterproof poncho is an easy one to forget when it comes to shopping for festival essentials, but it’s something you’ll be in need of if the heavens open - and let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be a British festival without a bit of rain would it?

For a cheap and cheerful waterproof poncho that is compact enough to fit into the bottom of your bag, why not shop GO Outdoors’ emergency poncho, designed to keep you dry when those pesky storms strike?

With your TOTUM membership, you’ll get up to 60% off sale items plus an extra 10% off at GO Outdoors
