Question by Stevie G: How much money would i need for V festival weekend?
I’m going V festival soon in August, got my ticket for the full weekend. Just wondering how much money i should take for all my food and drinks? And any other tips would be greatly appreciated 🙂

I go to Silverstone for the F1 Grand Prix every year for the full weekend, never been to a music festival but I presume the prices of things will be similar, and everything is VERY expensive.
Burgers and hotdogs are like £3.50 each, bottles of coke £2.00, a pint of beer can be anything from £4.50 – £6 a pint. I always spend about £120 at least just on food and drink alone, excluding any merchandise. I always buy one of the new team baseball caps which are always £20!
I don’t know what part of the UK you are from, but to me those prices are expensive and seem to be on the rise every year, so I would take at least £150 just to be on the safe side.
Round the camp sites at Silverstone they have stalls selling all sorts and you end up spending money without even realising it. Again, don’t know if they do that at music festivals but I’d only buy stuff if you really need to. They usually have cash machines round the camp sites, but obviouslly they charge a high fee for using those as well.
Have a good weekend at the festival anyway!
