The tent will no doubt come in handy as a recent study found music lovers most likely to cop off with someone at Wireless and Bestival.

Research, which was undertaken by SpaSeekers, polled 500 festival-goers around the nation to rank the most popular music events in terms of filthiness, amount of sleep and sexual activity.

The festivals, which take place in London and Dorset respectively came in at first and second place, with a total score of 58 of 58.3% and 58% respectively.

Scores were based on the combined percentage of pollers who were asked two questions; If they had kissed someone at a festival who wasn't their partner, and if they had sex with someone who wasn't their partner.

62% of the surveys' participants who went to Bestival admitted to kissing someone who wasn't their other half, while 64% of participants who went to Wireless said the same.

Despite Wireless only being a day festival, 53% of participants who attended the event revealed they'd had sex with someone who wasn't their partner, while 54% of participants said the same of Bestival.

Also in the rankings were Parklife, Latitude and Creamfields, who came in at third, fourth and fifth place respectively.
