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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots.

The babymoon trend is adding to the number of women traveling while pregnant. Expecting moms often need special items to take on the road. If you plan to travel while pregnant, you may want to consider adding these products to your suitcase.
Online shopping continues to soar in popularity with more people choosing to browse an entire catalogue of options instead of making a trip to the store. It makes sense because people are busy and sometimes don’t have time to spend hours browsing a store only to buy a few outfits. When shopping online, people can buy items sporadically or fill up carts and purchase them later. Online shopping is now more than just searching on the web, it’s also swiping through an app. Apps make it easier than ever to keep up with sales, new items and trends.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
With the early days of spring behind us, the busy days of summer festivals and events will be here before you know it. Most festival favorites, like Bonnaroo, Firefly, Coachella, Lollapalooza, CMA Music Festival and Austin City Limits, have lineups already announced, early-bird pricing expired and tickets mostly sold out or close to it, but, don’t worry, there are far more unique events taking place all over the world. If not this year, at least keep them on your radar for next.
