It’s official. Festival season is in full swing. You’ve got your ticket. You’ve bought your tent. You’ve picked the wellies you’re going to buy. Nothing can go wrong. Right? Wrong. If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that music festivals (the world over) are just breeding grounds for disaster. So that you’re prepared for all eventualities, we’ve put together a list of the world’s most epic festival fails. Carly-Ann Clements

1. Mud

No matter what time of year it is or what the weather forecast says, you’re bound to find yourself in a pile of mud at some point. And mud + alcohol = the above.

2. Shoes

Let’s face it, he didn’t have a chance. And neither do girls in high heels. We suggest you opt for a comfortable pair of Converse or wellies.

3.  Toilets

There are so few, so don’t mess with them.

4. No seriously, the toilets

This really needs no explanation.

5. Clothes

Make sure you’re comfy and if you want to stand out, go ahead, wear a costume. But beware; someone will see you and photograph you and you will end up on a blog somewhere.

6. The lack of clothes (NSFW)

This poor guy learned the hard way. Keep your clothes on or you could get a beat down.

7. Forgetting to put your tent up

It should be the first thing you do. Always. If it’s not, then you’ll inevitably get drunk and end up sleeping under the stars… for realsies.

8. Climbing

The urge to climb something to get a better view is ever-present, but always inadvisable.

9. Crowd Surfing

Always make sure your crowd is ready.

10. DO NOT throw a bottle of piss

Because this girl with find you and beat you. And you’ll be branded a dick forever. The end.
