I'm camping it up with Jo Whiley on Radio 1 today at 12noon, running down my top tips for festival season. There's a whole bunch of new kit out there that'll help take your mind off the mud...
AeroBed Active from £50 www.itsjustgotserious.co.ukA rechargeable inflator takes the effort out of filling this festival-resistant and stable airbed.
Loc8tor Light £50Find your tent - or have fun trying - with this credit-card RFID system that works up to 400 ft away. Just hit the button and follow the increasingly frenetic beeps, James Bond Style. Supplied with two tags, so you can use it to find your car too. Or your friends.
Freeplay wind-up lantern £30From the same people that brought us the wind-up radio and wind-up MP3, an LED torch and lantern powered by your arm. A minute's winding will give 10 minutes of bright light. Fortunately, you can charge it from the mains before you go. Read more about Freeplay products
We'll have a Festival Kit Top 10 appearing over in our Top 10 buying guide section very soon, and a special feature in next month's Stuff magazine, available from all good news agents with a special Nano-sized mag at train stations and airports.
