WIN: How festival ready are you? We have SOLD OUT Body&Soul tickets up for grabs
There are TWO tickets with your name on them.

IT’S FESTIVAL SEASON already and it’s the moment of truth – how ready are you?

Your levels of festival preparation say so much about you. Do you grab your wallet and some facepaint and head out the door on the day? Or do you carefully pack your bag weeks in advance?

Here’s a scientific* quiz designed to find out just how festival-ready you are.

*Definitely not scientific. It’s not even peer-reviewed.

Absolutely none

Eh, all of them
Got plans for one, hoping to get tickets for another

Pretty much. Have a couple of bits to get

I'm packed mentally...
I have a bag...
4. Have you taken any time off work?
Got the day before and the day after off

Taking a week off
5. Have you planned the festival?

As many as humanly possible
Hopefully I'll find some cool bands I didn't know before

Way too early to be thinking about that

Got a lift lined up
I have an idea...
