Tips / Travel

Festivals, unlike concerts, are much more demanding a musical experience. Whether it’s for the day or an entire week, here’s what to pack in your festival bag.

 

Water

It’s probably going to be hot out, so be sure to pack some extra water to keep you hydrated. Bottled water is going to be expensive there, so keep some refillable bottles on hand. If you want to avoid the long refill lines, consider wearing a CamelBak.

 

Earplugs

Ok, maybe you wouldn’t be caught dead with these weird things sticking out of your ears, but for seasoned festival-goers, hearing loss is a serious risk that can easily be prevented. A set of acoustic earplugs can help protect your short- and long-term hearing while allowing you to rock out at an appropriate volume.

 

Facilities

Nothing is more vile than a festival Porta Potty. The only thing that can make it worse is waiting for an hour to get in, which is not an uncommon occurrence. Thankfully, there are a variety of products like the Biffy Bag that provide a personal, disposable bathroom, letting you keep things private and sanitary.

 

Phone Charger

There are 1,000 reasons you would want to have your phone on you at a festival, thus 1,000 reasons it’s going to run out of battery. Be sure to pack some extra battery packs or a solar charger to stay in contact with your friends.

 

Portable Speaker

Chances are, you’ll need a rest between sets and walking between stages. These can be some of the best moments of a festival, just relaxing with some friends and catching your breath, so make them even better with some tunes in the background.
