If you're already worried about letting your workout routine fall by the wayside as you enjoy a summer of music festivals and dancing in the mud, don't panic just yet.
Tech company Withings carried out what has to be the coolest study of all time when they calculated how many calories the average festival-goer burns in one day at a music festival. With the help of detailed site maps and distance-tracking tools, the researchers were able to get an accurate idea of how many kilometres were travelled and how many calories were danced/walked off each day.
The average reveller will burn anything from 2,300 to 3,400 calories a day, which amounts to close to 10,000 if you're spending 3-4 days at your festival of choice. Of course, if you're choosing acts like Sigur Ros over Avicii you might find you burn less calories, but that's a personal choice.
Withings focused only on UK festivals, but here's their findings to below to give you an idea of what you'll be burning off at Longitude, Electric Picnic et al. And considering the SHEmazing! team checked out their own activity data after last month's Body and Soul Festival and averaged about 15 – 18 km of walking/dancing per day, the estimations below even seem a little conservative.
Glastonbury: 3400 calories burnt off each day and 8.2 km walked
V Festival: 3,100 calories burnt off each day and 7.4 km walked
Reading Festival: 3,000 calories burnt off each day and 7.6 km walked
T In The Park: 3,000 calories burnt off each day and 7.2 km walked
Leeds Festival: 2,900 calories burnt off each day and 7.4 km walked
So don't feel too guilty about queuing up at the burger stand or trying out the pie truck… you'll burn it off soon enough.
