Festival themed birthday ideas

We're doing a music quiz with 'set lists' from different stages.
Trying to find flags for decorations
Printing out old music festival posters
Plastic cups for beers
Takeaway cartons for food
Sparkly / festival themed clothes
Bucket hats

Can anyone add any bright ideas for games / decor / food that will fit the theme????

It's for my Dad so not too modern thinking more along the lines of Woodstock / vintage Glasto than Download Grin

Ask everyone to bring their own cup, Burning Man style. No cup, no drink. No single use plastic.

Any kids attending? Get them to recreate the Grand Irrational a la Wilderness.

Make sure everyone gets a wristband and an ink stamp to get into the event.

Signpost everything. The toilets, the main stage, the chillout zone, the food area. Make sure all the signs are just a little bit skew-wiff and pointing at the wrong thing.

Everyone likes slushies, the more luridly coloured the better.

Great suggestions! Love the signposts to everything that could be very funny and could get kids to make them ahead of time

Totally forgot about wristbands too - will investigate my random ribbon box.

Don't know what the grand irrational is - off to Google

Thank you

Ask everyone to wear wellies and block the toilet.
