Planning for summer festival season is a several months-long process for some — shopping, planning and packing all the essentials — or a last-minute concern for others. If you fall in the latter category, this list is for you.



Yes, it’s hot, but you need them. The ground gets hot, dusty, sometimes wet from who-knows-what, so you’re going to want a lightweight, water-wicking something to lay down when the all-day standing gets to you. Find something lightweight, preferably one that folds up tightly and into its own packing, like this one.



Packing a small battery pack for your phone charger is a must. Try not to use it the first day, save it up for the last few in case of emergencies — chances are you’re not getting a WiFi signal anyway — but it’s good to have. Find a weather-proof device you can charge on the way up, like this one, or a charging phone case.


Bottles and Bags

Go full- estival-goer with a CamelBak HydroBak water bottle and backpack duo, or divide and conquer with a refillable water bottle, maybe one that collapses, and a lightweight water-resistant backpack, like Eagle Creek.


By loading up on all-weather, lightweight gear, you’re set for nearly any summer festival situation.
