We have some exciting news for you all. Very.co.uk are the official fashion partner for Virgin Media’s V Festival, we’re delighted to launch the world’s first festival delivery service, to coincide with this year’s event on 18th and 19th August.
As one of the UK’s leading online department stores, we want to bring our free national next day delivery service to savvy festival goers in the fields of V Festival’s Chelmsfordsite. Revellers can buy any of our 50,000 fashion or home lines online directly from their phones the Friday of the festival, with free next day delivery to V Festival for the Saturday.
To further extend the service, we’ve also designed an SOS ‘Festival Favourites’ capsule collection, offering a range of festival staples from tents to wellies, which can be ordered via a bespoke Very.co.uk mobile festival site, with items delivered to the Very tent within the hour!
As any fashionista knows, the uncertain British weather can wreak havoc when it comes to packing suitable festival attire, but with the new service, fashion disasters will be a thing of the past, come rain or shine!! Yippeeee! In keeping with the festival spirit, teams of glamorous girls and boys will be scattered around the site, taking orders from festival attendees, who will have the option of deciding on a quick change of look for the headline act or any impromptu hot dates they might set up.
Our lovely Fearne Cotton comments: “The attire for festivals in this country has really changed since I first started going. It’s no longer about rolling around in the mud and not washing for days, the fashion is now almost as important as the music itself! Everyone will be dressing to impress, so it’s important to look the part. Packing for a festival in the UK can of course be really tricky though. You obviously don’t want to be trying to cram your entire wardrobe into a tent, but you also need to make sure you have packed enough different outfits to counter the changeable British weather. Absolute necessities for me are a good pair of old biker boots, loads of layers I can peel off and put back on and also a trusty parker for when the heavens open. I’m also partial to a bright coloured rain mac! Your friends will never lose you and you’ll keep your hair dry if it rains!”
Dan Rubel, Head of Marketing for Very.co.uk comments, “Very.co.uk is well known for stress-free, online shopping and free next day delivery. As the official fashion partner for V Festival we wanted to extend our offering to festival goers, so our one hour Festival Favourites delivery service is bound to prove popular with the 90,000 music lovers heading to the Chelmsford extravaganza.”
Those using the unique festival delivery service can collect their items using the ‘Collect Plus’ service at the official Very.co.uk tent at Hylands Park’s V-Festival. Whilst collecting their orders, revellers will also have the opportunity to prepare for the rest of the festival in Very’s own ‘Glam Pods’. From hair straighteners and shavers to mirrors and tepee changing rooms, the Very.co.uk tent offers the ultimate on-site destination to ‘glam-up’ for the evening entertainment.
So what are you waiting for, who’s going to be joining us in the Glam Pod?………(EXCITED!!!!!)
