#TTOT Round-Up: Summer Festivals

Every Tuesday, it's Travel Talk on Twitter! Join either of the two sessions at 9:30am GMT and 9:30pm GMT to get in on all the fun travel talk! Just follow the #TTOT hashtag!

Here's the round-up of this week's #TTOT on "Summer Festivals!" 

Q1 via : What is your top tip for surviving a festival?
  • : Water. Lots of it
  • : A toilet roll and some Imodium! There's nothing like "peace of mind"
  • : Leave your wallet and valuables in the safe, carry minimal cash in your shoe
  • : Eat small, light meals throughout the day so you don't feel like you're carrying a rock in your stomach the whole day
  • : Wet wipes
  • : LOTS of Ibuprofen and Wellington boots in case of bathroom floods
  • : Carry a small empty bag, for your clothes... just in case
  • : Plan a holiday to recover afterwards

Q2 via : What is "must-pack" for going to a summer festival?
  • : Bring cash. It sucks when you realize you can't purchase anything with your cards
  • : Camera, reusable water bottle, snacks
  • : Sunscreen! Saves you for the next day, and for your life of travel
  • : Sunglasses
  • : Lollipops. They are inexpensive and can make SO MANY people happy when you hand them out for free 
  • : A friend who will bail you out of jail
  • : Sunscreen, comfortable clothes and even more important comfortable footwear, lightweight rain gear 
  • : Water, but you can always barter for that. So fresh underwear. You don't want to barter for that
  • : Sunscreen, a hat and DEODORANT 

Q3 via : Best Summer Festival to travel to ever would be _____!
  • : Burning Man in Nevada. Or AfrikaBurn would do too 
  • : I would like to go to Tomatina is Spain and Oktoberfest in Germany
  • Croatia Music Garden Festival is on my list
  • : I've always wanted to go to Soundwave in Australia
  • : Jerash Festival in Jordan. Largest Roman city outside Rome with music, dance, performances by artists from Jordan, Arab region and beyond
  • senyoritamyx: Will film festivals count? I would like to attend the Cannes Film Festival
  • : Never been but the Up Helly Aa festival in Shetland Scotland sounds GREAT 
  • : Rocking the Daisies. As the name suggests... It rocks
  • : Portugal's Festas de Lisboa: lively streets filled with dancing, music, food and wine 
  • : Love Amsterdam's Uitmarkt summer festival filled with every type of live performance
  • : Roskilde Festival in Copenhagen for sure 
  • : Glastonbury is the correct answer 
  • : Fete de la Musique in Paris is fun 
  • : La Guelaguetza in Oaxaca, Mexico 
  • : Benicassim and Flamjangled Tea Party. Both wild but in completely different ways
  • : Splendour in the Grass, Byron Bay, Australia! Always a good line up, and best atmosphere 
  • : Still have yet to go to Coachella.... A must next summer 
  • : Midsommar, in Sweden... Think: pole dancing, pagans, vodka shots, and seafood. What's not to love about that? 

Q4 via : Show us your best festival picture!


: A4: It's in Brazil's summer, so I'd say Carnival

: A4. Jerash Festival in Jordan

: Lamere festival, Almere, 2011


Festa Major in Sitges, Spain

Q5 via : If you had the power/money, what summer festival would you set up and where?
  • : A space travel festival! Astronaut ice cream for everyone
  • : I want to set up an overnight stargazing festival in Lake Tekapo, New Zealand
  • : The Foodie International festival, on a Boeing 777 for a TRUE moveable feast 
  • : The Melting Man festival on a floating iceberg in Antarctica. Music stops when the ice vanishes
  • : Week long festival to follow summer across the globe, cover both hemispheres, with music/great bands, beer/wine, on beaches
  • : Indie festival on boats in the Mediterranean - you can jump onto a different boat for a new band, all food and booze included
  • : A combination of the greatest festivals in a perfect climate: think Air-glasto-chella-Man on a beach somewhere 
  • : I'd set up a NASA festival, without gravity, flying bands and pogos
