You don't need any of that.
What you need is a small phone that will fit in your pocket while you're dancing in a crowd.
A phone that will easily last the while muddy weekend on a single charge, so you're never out of contact with your friends in the other campsite.
A phone that will raise a smile when you whip it out in the queue for drinks.
And raise a smile it will.

Risk taking or breaking of smartphones if you absolutely must, just make sure you've a 3310 in your other pocket.
While your friend's smartphones would have run out of juice by lunch, you'll still be going strong long into the night with more than enough power left for a classic game of snake to help take your mind off those awful festival toilets.
