exciting news! i never bring cans to festivals as they're too heavy but i'll certainly be purchasing some for my pre-festival days

How do they self inflate?
They're filled with sponge. You just open the valve, leave for a while, give it a breath to top up and close the valve.

oh yea i know what you mean, I may take a mat, I mean I had a little mat thing last year but didn't even use it, just did the normal get back to tent, fall asleep without even getting in my sleeping bag, just slept on top of it!
I too think an airbed is overkill.
However, there's two factors against sleeping directly on the floor.
First, the ground is lumpy.
Second, and most importantly, the ground sucks the heat away from your body.
A sleeping bag won't keep you warm if it's directly against the groundsheet of your tent.
A basic rollmat is incredibly cheap, light, and does a good job of insulating you from the cold floor. It doesn't do much about the lumpiness, but that's less of a concern.
A self-inflating rollmat is slightly heavier, and more expensive, but is better in both respects.
I use a canvas camp bed with metal legs. Brilliant, but heavy to carry.
I think you should take at least a rollmat for sure.

I tried a few down our way but again, all green, so gave up and bought them on ebay - cost a couple of quid, but so worth it. have edged them with gaffa tape and made a criss cross net on them with packaging tape, so they're a bit sturdier and maybe stand a chance of lasting more than 1 fest!!
For anyone still looking for the silver emergency shelters found 3 in the 99p Store in Stratford on Sunday, so might be worth checking out your local store. Had quite a wide array of camping bits and bobs too....
