Glastonbury is in full flow and the festival season has gripped us by our flowery shirts and wellington boots. Before you trudge off through the endless mud to see your favourite band, Haus Tech take a look at some of the best festival gadgets to help bring that little bit of home with you.
The modern festival tends to have rules against open campfires and if you rock up with a big gas canister you are likely to be judged by the eco-friendly folk. The BioLite Camping Stove which burns 'renewable biomass' is a fancy way of saying twigs, pinecones and anything that may or may not be flammable. Did we mention that this fancy bit of kit can even charge your phone by converting the heat generated from the fire into electricity? The result means you can keep warm, cook your own food and have enough juice in the phone to not lose all your friends (or those who don't judge you for having this quite remarkable bit of gear).
There's only so much cleansing a wet wipe can afford you when you are dancing like an idiot for three days, but Solar Shower should offer you some semblance of creature comfort. It heats the water via the sun, allowing you to comfortingly wash the mud, dirt and weekend's revelry away.
Seating space at a festival is at a premium. The Matador Pocket Blanket is made of tough, waterproof, lightweight material which folds into a tiny little device that fits nicely into your pocket. It means you can take the most comfortable option of sitting on the grass and taking in the atmosphere of the festival around you.
Sometimes you want to host a little festival of your own., but unless you brought a generator with you that's going to be tough in the great outdoors. Thanks to the water-resistant and shockproof Veho Vector Speaker you can be the life and soul of the party...for up to 16 hours (it will also charge your phone).
You are going to want to sleep at some point and the Cinch Tent is at the fore of the tent revolution. Built by campers for camping it takes seconds to put up and take down and folds into a neat little backpack that weighs very little. For a little extra, Cinch have conjured a solar panel that sits on the roof gathering power for you to charge all your gadgets.
Ok, so brewing your own coffee in the middle of a field is hardly going to endear yourself to the traditionalists, but let's be honest, you are going to need a lot of energy! The All-In-One Coffee Maker might look like a fancy travel mug but this does exactly what it says on the tin to bring that real sense of home comfort to the great outdoors.
