Music festivals 2010: Festival gadgets

So, what to pack for a positive – midgie and body odour-free – festival experience? We point you towards a few essentials …

MozzyOff mosquito repellent

Natural insect repellent made with essential oils, and they claim it works on Scottish midgies. GTF ya wee buggers! 10ml bottle, £7.95, www.thejetrest.com

Solar camp shower

Fill with water, leave in the sun for three hours, then hang up to use. Bingo! Avoid the social stigma of being the one with BO in the car home. £9.99, www.nigelsecostore.com

Bonnie Bling plastic slogan jewellery

Bring a bit of ghetto to the glens. £15, www.muchtoofun.co.uk

Plastic wine and beer glasses

These guys have got twist-off stems to take up less room in your bag, and are so strong you can stand on them without breaking them. (We’re not sure about pogo-ing though, so don’t push it.)
From £6.15, from Tiso, Rose Street, Edinburgh and Buchanan Street, Glasgow. www.tiso.com

Tent

These colours should be easy to find on the campsite. Vango Juno tepee 300, £60, www.vango.co.uk

Portable stereo speakers

Tiny, but not tinny, that’s what we want from our portable speakers. These ones will keep the tunes coming for up to six hours. Go Rock speakers, £30, www.cotswoldoutdoor.com

Coconut water

The healthy way to rehydrate, keep energy levels up, and cure a hangover. And make you feel like you’re somewhere way more exotic than a muddy field in the Borders.
500ml, Dr Martins Coconut Water, Realfoods, Brougham Street and Broughton Street, Edinburgh.

Hunter mid-length wellies

Hidden upper shins are so very 2009. £49.99, www.rubbersole.co.uk
