There’s finally some good news for those that have always wanted to go to a festival but could never afford it. A cut-price range of essentials containing all you need to get you through a weekend festival goes on sale today at discount retailer The Original Factory Shop (TOFS).
The range (it’s huge and you don’t need all of it!) includes a waterproof travel rug, pop up tent, air bed and toiletries, and is priced at £246, £167 cheaper than expensive alternatives, and proves that you don’t have to splash the cash to see your favourite bands this summer.
Colourful wellies and designer camping equipment are just some of the things that young people have been known to spend their hard earned cash on to get festival ready.

As part of a short series on bargain last minute holidays, I’d thought I’d start of with something a little different. Camping is the perfect, fun alternative to a pricey hotel stay, particularly for families with a sense of adventure!
How about somewhere off the beaten track for a camping experience that’s different to the usual med destinations? Croatia has the perfect climate for camping and offers spectacular coastline and clear blue waters of Istria. I have included details of ArenaTurist’s camping offering, with four recommended campsites below.
Prices for camping lots and mobile homes start from just £7 per unit, per night and £5 per person, per night. Plus, there is a fantastic deal on for families – Kids go free in 2015 with a 5 night stay.
