This year couldn't have been worse for festivals. Festival X, Strawberry Fields, Loch Hart Music Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Listen Out, Caloundra and many, many more events fell by the wayside because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Some of them chose to roll over 2020's tickets to 2021, while others have offered refunds.

Whatever your situation, we're sure you're can't wait to spend a few days away with your mates in the coming months. In fact, we'd bet the anticipation's killing you - so why not let Haynes increase your expectations to fever pitch with the newly published Haynes Explains Festivals manual?

A light-hearted and entertaining take on the classic workshop manual, it contains everything you’d expect to see including exploded views, flow charts, fault diagnosis and the odd wiring diagram. It takes the reader through all areas of festival-going, giving all the hints and tips needed to make the entire experience run smoothly and mud-free.

With any luck (and a quick, painless jab), we'll all be free of Covid-19 within a few months and normal life can resume!
