Summer is here and the festival season is upon us. You got a long weekend of sun, fun, music and are all stocked up with the all-important food and drink.


However, before all the fun begins you need to think about some logistics and in particular, how to keep all your wares fresh over the coming 2-5 days. Well, this is where cooler boxes come in.


In this article, I have there put together 10 best cool boxes for festivals in 2020 based on the capacity, cooler performance and the number of reviews they get on Amazon.


I have personally owned numbers 9 and 10 from the list, which I use for my mobile juice bar and can attest to the build quality and how effective it is at keeping food and drinks cool.


So whether you are a festival goer or intend to trade from a food stall check out these cool boxes great for festivals.....


Buyers guide:


  • Go for a recognized brand name like Igloo or Coleman. The build quality and performance will be much better than cheaper alternatives.

  • Pay attention to cooler performance as this will determine how long your food and drinks stay fresh.

  • Cool boxes on wheels are better for mobility especially if it's full and heavy to lift.
