Campaign at EP?

Camping is a great way to experience the festival. It's also a great way to meet new people and allows you to get into the spirit of the event by hanging out with like-minded people who are just as excited about the event as you are. What you don't want is to be cold and wet, it takes away from the whole experience.  Ponchos just don't cut it in Irish weather!

Showering when its cold and wet, along with long lines can be real challenge. You can utilize your new parka, designed to be large firring it has with enough room to easily change clothes underneath. Its a great way to keep private in a very busy area and stay warm while you changing and keep you dry going back to your tent.
