You've seen it all. You know what to pack and what not to bother with, when to plan and when to wing it, and you'll probably be pestered a lot by everyone else in your group about what you're doing. Enjoy it, you've peaked as a festival connoisseur.

The wanderer

The wanderer

You often find yourself in strange new locales within the festival, hanging out with strange new people and having crazy new experiences. Your phone blows up with a million 'where are you?!'s whenever you turn it on, but hey, you're probably making some of the best memories of everyone there! Wander on.

The stresser

The stresser

What should we pack? Where should we go? What bands should we see? Where is everyone? HELP!

Just some thoughts which will probably run through your head as the stresser. You might be the most prepared, but you might want to ease up a little or you might have the least fun.

The nutter

You're the first to be wasted and the last one to fall asleep every single day of the festival. You're off your nut pretty much the whole time, which may well be problematic for your friends, but you're having a whale of a time.

The newbie

You always remember your first. And your initial festival experience might start off as quite an overwhelming, scary time - for the first few hours, at least. But once you familiarise yourself with your surroundings and the overall vibe of everyone having a great, if raucous, time, you'll probably have the best weekend, day or week of your life.
