Festivals

Take a look at our brand new festival planning information for top tips on attending a festival if you have cystic fibrosis (CF).

Music festivals are a rite of passage, and having cystic fibrosis (CF) shouldn't stop you from having fun and doing what you enjoy. But we know there are a lot of things to think about when planning an exciting weekend away from your usual routine. Whether it's planning your medication and physio routine around your favourite bands or making sure you're choosing the right camping pitch, we've got loads of information to help you make the right decisions and have a great time while you're at it!

We developed our brand new festival planning information with the help of our Youth Advisory Group (YAG), who gave us their top tips on staying healthy and having fun. 

Inside you can find:

  • A list of top tips for festival fun.
  • A packing list.
  • A medical information template.

You can download a PDF of our festival planning information or print it out and fill in our medical information template to take with you.

Download the PDF

Although this information has been designed for young people, it's full of tips for people with CF of all ages.

Our resources are free to download and order, but we would be very grateful if you would consider making a donation to help us continue our important work.

Liv's story

Liv has CF and is a member of YAG. We sent her to Bestival on the Isle of Wight in 2016 and asked her to tell us what it's like going to a festival when you have cystic fibrosis. As well as helping us to write our festival pack, Liv provided us with loads of useful tips on finding accessible areas to camp and watch bands, storing medications and charging nebulisers. Read her full story to find out what she got up to on her weekend away.
