So I'm attending my first festival next weekend (12-16) and heading to the Sussex area for this year's Latitude Festival. I'm so excited to head up there for a couple of days of live music and performances as well as take in the good British countryside too. I'm slightly apprehensive about my first festival experience and I don't quite know what to expect, however I'm willing to give it a go. The only other festivals I have been to I've only attended for the duration of the day, therefore camping at a festival in itself will be a new experience. I've created a small wishlist to help me prepare for the weekend, please do let me your tips and tricks to having the best festival experience!

We won't be heading to the festival until the Friday afternoon because of work commitments, therefore missing a lot of Friday's good stuff. However I've gone from around 5pm when we should be on site and ready to immerse ourselves in all of the action.
