The sun's shining, the days go on for ever and ever, you're dying to be out in a field getting your ear-drums blasted out by industrial speakers while ingesting some mixture of cider, organic sausages and mud. It's festival season. You've packed the tin-opener. What else do you need? Here are some gadgets to make that stay under polythene in a field much more fun - for you, and everyone sharing the tent with you..
1. iPod Speakers
There are many iPod speakers out there in this wide world. In a festival you're looking for portability, and a built-in long-life battery rather than depth of sound. We like the Memorex brand so it's worth checking out their portable ranges: the AA battery powered Tagalong (£50) or the 6hr rechargable battery PartyCube (£75) Memorex Tagalong Boombox - £50 on Amazon
