Do you want to meet other people also going to Sweden Rock?
Festivalholics will create an event for each festival on Facebook. So join the event and get chatting!
- Don´t forget to bring your wellies, everybody will be wearing them...the chance of muddy ground is very likely!
- Try to find a spot with lots of grass underneath your tent, the more grass you have the softer and better you will sleep.
- Be very careful where you set up your tent, the location is very important. Make sure you don´t set your tent up in a valley, because if it rains, your tent could easily end up underwater!
- If you´re camping, try to buy drinks at a supermarket and take them with you to your tent, drinking at your tent is part of the festival warm-up!
- Make some new friends! It´s always good to be friends with your tent neighbours, not only can you have a good time together, but they will look after your stuff and you can do the same for them!
- Enjoy yourself like there is no tomorrow!
