Packing for the Picnic? Top 10 Essentials


My essential packing list for the festival weekend.

Our girl Soraiya Ryan is heading down to Electric Picnic this weekend along with comedian Emman Idama and RTÉ 2fm’s Eoghan McDermott and Bláthnaid Treacy. We caught up with Ms. Ryan to get her essential packing list for the festival weekend. Click through the gallery below to check it out. Soraiya and Emman will be reporting from the ‘Picnic’ arena, bringing the latest news, exclusive artist interviews and festival happenings. Be sure to drop by and say hello!

Toiletries including deodorant, make up wipes, dry shampoo, a hairbrush, moisturizer, toilet paper, toothbrush, toothpaste and sun cream (you never know). If you want to be extra: Tooth whitening strips

Makeup! You’ll need all your essentials plus some fake eyelashes and anything with glitter.

LED Mirror – an absolute must when trying to get festival ready in the back of a tent.

Wellies, sleeping bag and backpack. These are non-negotiable.

Festival tops with a bit of frill and sparkle.

Be prepared for all weather. Jeans for the cold days, skirts and dresses for the hot days.

A rain jacket is an absolute must. A zippy is handy to keep you warm and a denim or leather jacket will make you look like a rock star.

You might be warm running around the stages but remember, it gets cold at night! Bring comfy thermals to sleep in.

Sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun (if it appears) and hide your face from the camera on day 3. Plenty of accessories will also help to distract from your Sunday look.

This is one that people always forget! A flashlight is key to finding a porta-potty at 4 in the morning.
