The most exciting time of the year is here! No, not Christmas! It is festival season! We have all seen Beyoncé’s Coachella performance this year and it has left the country shook and excited for the festivals to come. Couldn’t make it to Coachella? No worries, because there are still so many more on the way. Lollapalooza, Rolling Loud Festival,
and Bonnaroo are only some of the many that music fanatics are anticipating. When it comes to music festivals, there’s nothing worse than being at one and feeling unprepared for the festivities! That’s why our team at TUC Magazine has designed the perfect list of essentials to add to your list for your next music festival!
It is 2018, and by now society has stressed the importance of staying hydrated. Let’s make one thing clear, when you are at a music festival there is a lot of jumping, mosh pits, walking and this is all mainly under the blazing heat of the sun. So make sure to come prepared. Majority of festivals have refill stations for your factory sealed bottles too, so there is no excuse for dehydration.
Imagine jamming out to your favorite musician and as you are jumping and singing along, the aroma of musty armpits lingers under your nose. Can someone say unpleasant? Do yourself and everyone a favor and pack some Deo for your B-O.
Whether it’s taking photos in your best festival outfit, or recording your favorite artist, most of us want the ability to look back at events like these. Let’s just say, I have made the mistake of forgetting to bring a portable charger.
I was in the middle of snap chatting Migos’ performance and BOOM, my phone died. I was so frustrated because I wanted to capture every moment of my experience and all I had left were the memories in my head. Learn from my mistake and invest into a portable charger so that you can capture your favorite performances and look back on them!
A TRASH BAG
It sounds strange, but a trash bag is probably the most versatile item that you could bring to a festival. If it starts raining, you officially have a poncho. If you need to sit on the grass, consider it a blanket. And last but not least if you need a quick nap between sets, your trash bag can be used as a pillow!
A HOODIE OR LIGHT JACKET
Yes, most festivals occur during the summer but do not underestimate the chills of a summer breeze. Once the sun goes down, you are going to want to stay warm and comfortable, so be prepared!
If a fanny pack is out of reach then, by all means, bring a backpack, however for the most comfort we recommend investing in a fanny pack. Not only are they back in style but you hardly notice it is on you while you dance your heart out at music festivals!
