We did a pretty simple tarps stretched between two cars setup last year, and we even set up the tents underneath it. It was like a fort. At least, thats what about 50 people said when they walked by. It worked alright.
These are a little spendy but pretty cool to have if you camp a lot. It's called a Jet boil, It boils water with a small propane tank pretty fast. It comes with a stand, igniter, cup, and propane tank and it all compacts into about the size of a football.
We use these to boil water in the morning and put that starbucks via coffee into. Pretty good coffee in about two minutes. you can also make instant soup really easily. A great way to make quick hot meals without having to break out the camp stove.

This is my 6th sasquatch but I'm a festival camping virgin. So I am appreciating the advice here. (loooooooters will be shot)
When I go into the festival I take a soft-sided cooler. They have never hassled me about it. It is a little bit of a pain to drag around, but having ice later in the day for water or for special mixed drinks is so damn nice. I think it is a necessity.
