Sleeping at Festivals
If you, like us, struggle sleeping at festivals, then worry no more. We have collated the ultimate good night’s sleep tips.
Make your comfort ‘in-tents’. We suggest a blow up mattress for some elevation from a hard floor. Plus with a blow up bed you can set whether you want it firm or soft, providing optimum comfort. Avoid getting woken up by the sunshine streaming through your tent by wearing an eye mask to bed. Remember pyjamas so you have something dry to wear too.
Earplugs! Whilst we know this may sound counterproductive, especially if you’ve gone to a music festival to listen to the music, earplugs are an essential for two reasons. Firstly, they are perfect for blocking sound from outside your tent to let you get some shut eye. For a good night’s sleep try our Otifleks Goodsleep Earplugs here. Secondly, looking after your hearing is crucial if you want to avoid tinnitus. Tinnitus is described as ringing in your ears, something you may relate to after you have been to a gig or been listening to loud music. Take care of your ears by wearing earplugs.

No midnight snacks! Try not to eat too close to bed. Chocolate can be a sneaky one as it contains caffeine which can keep you up. Also if you are full your body is still digesting your food, making it harder to fall asleep.
Punish the pollen. If sleeping with the window open at home means you wake up sneezing then sleeping outside in a field probably isn’t going to help. Remember to take your allergy medication with you. Top tip: Smear some salve around your nostrils before falling asleep. The pollen will stick to the salve, without irritating your hayfever. Breathe free.
Sun Worshipper. To have the best chance of sleeping at festivals, wear sunscreen during the day and try and find shade when the sun is at its peak.
If all else fails, book a hotel outside of the festival and dream away!
