9 of the most stupid festival gadgets to add to your Christmas list

It’s time to start writing your letter to Santa.

Christmas is right around the corner and if you’re anything like us, you’re counting down the days. If you haven’t written your letter to the big guy wearing red yet – we’ve got a few festival ideas for you that are totally and utterly stupid, but you’re going to want them anyway.

Camo Beer Belt

How many times have you been with your mates in the campsites and needed a spare hand? A tent peg needed hammering in, a sausage needed turning on the BBQ… well, you obviously didn’t have this functional and fashion beer belt. Keep all your bevvies with you while you find out about your neighbours and more.


Remote Control Moving Tail

Hats with horns, patterned bucket hats, weird wellies – nothing says festival like a moving tail. We have no idea why you’d want to wear this, but if it was us, we’d rather have a realistic moving one than one that’s just dangling there for no reason.

USB Travel Iron

Let’s not bullsh*t anyone and pretend we’re going to iron anything while we’re at Reading Festival, but maybe that’s because you’ve never had the option? We’ll let you decide on that one.


The HoverBrella

Raining? No problem. Keep your hands free with The Hoverbrella, we’ve never seen anything more useless that we’ve wanted more.

Avocado on a Stick

For the millennial in your life, you’ll never have to worry about running out of avocado when you’re camping again. Hate when your ripe avo gets bruised? All of those first world problems are solved with avo on a stick.

Glow in the Dark Toilet Roll

Stop rummaging for your bog paper in your tent and let it light up your way to the long drops. To be honest, some of you are lucky if you even remember toilet roll, so this is winning either way.


The Bumper Dumper

When you’ve gotta go, you’ve gotta go and the bumper dumper means you can quite literally, dump wherever you go!


Lume Coffee Grinder

If you’ve been struggling to get the perfect caffeine hit at the festival, you may as well bring your favourite beans with you from home. This handy gadget grinds your beans and will help keep you going long into the night.

The Jakpak

Is it a jacket? Is it a sleeping bag? Is it a tent? It’s all three and that’s everything you need all in one.


None of these tickling your pickling? You may as well pick yourself up a ticket to Reading 2020, it’s going to be the best gift ever received.
