    We bought Thermarest Trio folding chairs, pack down to about the size of a pair of shoes....not cheap, around the £70 mark (each) and we've not used them at a festival yet but easy assembly and pretty lightweight. Sit nicely in a small backpack. Fairly sturdy but quite low to the ground.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks. This is a lazy bed
    I'd strongly discourage anyone from purchasing anything from this website.
    We have got a large ground sheet now which was very cheap and lightweight and they have little stools in b&m for 2.99 so I think I'll take all 3 and decide on the day dependant on weather

    I recommend getting some kind of light weight camping stool you can carry round. A light plastic sheet is fine if it's not muddy. But for those waits between acts - or a coffee/beer break with no seating -when you want to take the weight of your feet, having a little sit down is luxurious. The cheap three legged variety is fine if you're not to tall.[/QUOTE]

    Yes, I have one of those - I think it's a good compromise between ease, portability and comfort.

    I don't recommend sleeping in it though! Tried that once for a few hours early one Wednesday morning in the overnight queue (sitting in it, bent forward with my arms and head on my knees). Really did my back in :oops:

    OK, many of you (well, Nelly) have asked about these and this is my final report (Full disclaimer: I have no connection whatsoever with this company!)

    We both got a pair, but both slightly suspected we'd been suckered. However, we figured that if they don't work, well, worst case, we have some new socks. I first put on my socks on Wednesday morning and only wore the one pair for the entire festival. Every night I checked them and to my astonishment, every day they felt soft and fluffy like new and I was able to press them to my face and deeply inhale (I have - slightly horrifed - witnesses)! It was only on Monday night that they actually started to smell, but only like a pair of socks after a day sat in the office, not a pair that had been worn constantly for 6 days in a pair of 18 year old army boots at that festival! Oh, and they're dead comfortable! My toes were wriggling away happily all weekend :D

    They are incredible! No doubt there's some kind of weird voodoo stuff going on here, but what can I say? They work!
