Not sure if this is the right section, but am going to Latitude festival this weekend with family and just wondering if anyone had done this before and had any survival tips! We have been camping before, but this will be bit different. Mainly concerned with losing the little -buggers- angels

Cool. I did have friend once (who didnt have kids) who said we should dye our kids hair some crazy wild colour as everyone would remember if the "kid with blue hair" ran past as opposed to blonde/brown! We have never done it but I am always tempted. Mine are a bit younger so it has not really been an issue yet, so sorry no proper tips!
Anyway, have a fab time.

I have been to Latitude since it's 2nd year and going again this week
dd is now 4
all I can say is that if you have tickets for family camping you are sorted for entertainment from early in the morning

the only thing I would say is lower your expectations of what you might want to see, but it is very manageable with young children and there is plenty to keep them busy

don't think you will loose them it is very safe and child orientated

We took a big pull along wagons/garden trolley one of these for the kids as they get tired. during the day you can put your picnic stuff and jumpers etc. At night pile it high with pillows and blankets so they can snuggle up whilst you get to see the late night stuff. Much better than hearing it all from a distance at your tent!

I'm going to take a pushchair and hope ds will sit in it in the evenings - can't imagine him (ever) going to sleep. And I'm assuming no need to take camp stove as there will be so much food. I have no idea how any of us will get any sleep, t hough.
