Sock and Roll this Summer!

Coachella kicked off the summer festivals in style once again this year with three weekends of the best and biggest artists and bands across the globe coming to perform at Empire Polo Club in (the usually) sunny California. As these three weekends proved, weather is certainly unpredictable.  From blistering heat to harsh winds the crowds revelled in the incredible line up and partied hard, in true Heat Holders style – whatever the weather.

As top festivals are set to begin across the world – those of us with less sun (and more rainy/muddy/soggy weather) across the globe are looking at what to take with us as we pack our festival essentials!

In Britain, the summer months have become the season that make Cagoules and Wellies fashionable.

Whether this is during the night or a long mid morning nap, ear plugs will become your sleepy saviour.

Festival staff are usually on hand to help you construct and dismantle your tent, but it is always a good idea to have a practice run to ensure that no components are missing.


When you’re up to your ankles in mud, wellies become one of the greatest inventions known to man. Thanks to numerous colours and styles, wellies have become one of the most popular trends to hit festival campsites. Why not accessorise your wellies with a pair of long Heat Holders, or Heat Holders all new Wellie Socks (for Ladies – size 4 -8 more info at insulating your feet from the cold, and cushioning your toes as you dance and splash in the mud.
