GLAMOUR tip: This festival features lots of fun, outdoorsy activities, from paintball and a foefie slide to a ‘Float Your Boat’ competition! However adventurous you’re feeling, though, we don’t recommend making use of the tattoo facilities in the midst of your partying.
Date: 21 – 31 December

GLAMOUR tip: Book a tent before the event – it’ll be pitched for you when you arrive, and taken down for you after you leave! You can also book a Heartbreak Motel, a ‘cottage-style tent’, for a little more luxury.
