14 must have festival camping essentials

Did you know that the camping industry is set to be worth £2.9 billion by 2027? 

And last year alone, 16.7 million people dug out their tents and hooked on their caravans for some awesome camping trips (thanks ultimately to the cost of living crisis).

With camping proving more popular than ever, and with many of the best festivals requiring you to camp overnight in the great UK countryside, it’s time to get your brand seen in the great outdoors and gift your audience with must-have festival camping essentials.

If your brand is trying to reach festival-goers, gift them with products that will make them love the great outdoors, with merchandise that turns camping into glamping.
