Calling all festival acolytes!
Can you pack all of your festival essentials into one wicker picnic basket? If you can't but know someone who knows someone who has done this, please comment ASAP with their full details including phone number, email, and Facebook profile, thank you.
Also, please comment urgently if you think that, hypothetically, such a thing is possible? I'd like to compile a list of those people, and, if I succeed alongside them, we will call ourselves The Wicker Festival Disciples (Who Have Nothing to Do with the Wicker Man). Our short title will be The Wickos. Incidentally, it will have nothing to do with the words "wack" or "wacko", by the way.
In case you were wondering.
Aside from packing smart but light, I think the absolute key to enjoying a festival is to just pretend that, anatomically, your feet exist as separate entities from the rest of yourself. Let them do what they like and go and enjoy the music, food and/or looking at people who are dressed more interestingly than you (WHY didn't you bring a flower crown or at least your 5-year-old sister's Bratz tiara?).
Some footwear really assists with my hypothesis. As far as I know, so long as you wear decent socks, your feet will not blister in wellies, and even if they do, just remember: separate entities.
