That looks like a really good list, for some humour, I'd make a toilet paper cover, and the only other thing I'd add is thongs (flipflops whatever you call those things that ARENT gstrings)

Havianas are a top brand lol.

Good luck!

I have a wist!
So I up and decided to do the whole blog thing...

a flag or banner for his tent  Grin something wild and/or personal to him so he can find his way "home" amongst the field of other campers  Smiley

If the beer is served in 'cardboard' pints, maybe make a beer cooler, they can get warm pretty fast. Or the opposite, a cup warmer for late at night?

A fold up thin 'something to sit on'? Maybe a small square of fabric/fleece with plastic backing that folds up really small.

A change bag (complete with starter money) to exchange for beer or beer tokens.

Hm, I'll keep thinking, I'm going to Glastonbury this summer so I'll need to be thinking of good ideas for myself too! Cheesy

You're in Fife, so is it T he's going to?

If so, definitely not flip flops, the ground is too bumpy.  And a hat, with a wide enough brim to keep the sun off his neck. A small, fold up waterproof too.

Non melty, small and lightweight food, like nut bars, cause food costs a fortune and queueing is a waste of time, especially if he's only got a day ticket.

Oooh ok, the thing in Glasgow? That's a bit easier - flip flops would be ok then, assuming the weather is ok. At least it is a bit less changeable.

I want to come back up for that, I love the Flaming Lips  Cheesy

oooh!~ festivals!  we're all going to bonnaroo for the third time this year!  Whee!  so let's see.. stuff you need..

aloe in case you get burned
baby wipes!  better than that liquid stuff.
safety pins.. what if your pants rip?  or you get a giant foot blister?  you will need safety pins.
at least two pairs of shoes/flipflops
fruit (like apples and oranges)
bandana/ties for hair
those fold up bamboo beach mats are perfect.. def need one of those

this must be a really good friend for you to consider getting him all this stuff when you're not even going!   Shocked Shocked

flashlight and a disposible rain poncho (has many uses - not just for heeping people dry - can also keep the whole kit dry. Nothing sucks like soggy tp.)
