Face of Very.co.uk, Fearne Cotton said: “The attire for festivals in this country has
really changed since I first started going. It’s no longer about rolling around in the mud
and not washing for days, the fashion is now almost as important as the music itself!
Everyone will be dressing to impress, so it’s important to look the part.
“Packing for a festival in the UK can of course be really tricky though. You obviously
don’t want to be trying to cram your entire wardrobe into a tent, but you also need to
make sure you have packed enough different outfits to counter the changeable British
“Absolute necessities for me are a good pair of old biker boots, loads of layers I can
peel off and put back on and also a trusty parka for when the heavens open. I’m also
partial to a brightly coloured rain mac! Your friends will never lose you and you’ll keep
your hair dry if it rains!”
Gareth Jones, Retail Director at Very.co.uk, added: “Very.co.uk is well known for
easy, stress-free online and mobile shopping delivered where and when it’s convenient for
our customers. As the official fashion partner for V Festival, we saw no reason not to
extend that offering to festival goers.
“With 90,000 people expected to set up camp in Chelmsford on 17th August, we’re
looking forward to a busy weekend of fashion, fun, fantastic music and lots of shopping!”
Those using the free festival delivery services will be able to collect their items
from the official Very.co.uk tent at Hylands Park. Whilst collecting their orders,
revellers will also have the opportunity to prepare for the rest of the festival in
Very.co.uk’s ‘Glam Pods’. From hair straighteners to mirrors and tepee changing rooms, the
Very.co.uk tent offers the ultimate on-site destination to ‘glam up’ for the evening
*Free next day delivery applies when all items ordered are in stock and Collect+
