Start shredding

No pain, no gain.

Buy your ridiculously priced ticket and hide it somewhere until the day of the festival.

Take a break from tweeting about your sick gains to have a warm-up dance to your favourite artist.

Gotta practise those moves for the festival.

Get fashion ready! Buy a loose fitting singlet, with gaping holes in the side.

Hint: Don't buy an overly expensive one. Chances are you may take it off during the day anyway #gains

Don't forget your bucket hat!

It'll protect you from the sun, but you'll still look très chic.

Vanilla Essence Bottles?

Small bottles hidden in the lining of your bag?

Or the inside secret pockets, depending on how thorough the bag-checkers are.

Don't pass out at pre-drinks! Actually make it to the festival!

Ensure sure you have enough cash to pay for food and bevs.

Especially if your attempt at smuggling in the grog fails.

Oil up your guns because you're worth it.
