Festival season is upon us, which means ravers are gearing up for the epic experiences they will ensue! Some people may be veterans by now, and are aware of what items to bring to music festivals, while others may be experiencing their first music festival this year and are new to the rave experience. Whichever the case may be, these are the top festival essentials you need to make the most out of your rave experience. Whether you’re attending ULTRA this upcoming weekend or plan on attending Coachella, the Electric Forest or another festival, all of these items have a universal purpose. That is why it is important to consider them so you don’t miss out on a good time. The worst thing you could do is show up to a music festival being unprepared. You want to be able to enjoy the bass and rage out.
It is critical that you stay hydrated since you will be moving around a lot and surrounded by a ton of people. Also, the price for water is extremely high at festivals since it is in high demand.
2. Cash/Credit Card
If you plan on buying any food or merchandise make sure you bring cash. Sometimes vendors don’t take credit cards or ATM machines will charge you a fee so it is best to bring cash with you.
3. Fanny Pack
This is the ultimate accessary because it allows you to carry all of you belongings in one pouch. You will also be able to be hands free as well.
Music festivals are held outdoors, which means the sun will be beaming on you throughout the day. It is important you bring sunscreen so you don't damage your skin and burn.
5. Catchy T-Shirt or Tank Top
Neon colors are always a hit at any music festival. Finding a t-shirt with a catchy slogan will help you stand out from the crowd.
Wearing shades will allow you to see the performers completely and will prevent you from squinting.
It is always appropriate to bring chapstick to wherever you are going to keep your lips moisturized. After all you never know who you'll meet at festivals.
8. Booty Shorts
If you have a booty why not flaunt it? You’ll be able to stay cool while wearing shorts.
9. Energy Bars
Sometimes the food lines are long or you might not want to get out of the crowd and lose your spot. Bringing energy bars allows you to eat on the go and will give you energy to get through the day of partying.
10. Party Hat
Shade your face from the sun and show people you have style by finishing off your outfit with a hat.
11. Hand Sanitizer
Since porta potties are the only means of going to the bathroom and no sinks are present, it is a must to have hand sanitizer to clean your hands.
Outfits like these show off your creative side and will be sure to turn heads. Don’t worry though you won’t be the only person wearing a costume, many people are into wearing them.
13. Sneakers or any closed toe shoe
Millions of people attend music festivals every year and form crowds around the stages, which means you have to be wise in your choice of shoes. Wearing sneakers will protect your feet and you’ll be glad you went with this choice.
14. Glow Sticks
These neon sticks always make for a good time when the sun goes down.
15. Kandi Bracelets
Your outfit won’t be complete unless you have a Kandi bracelet around your wrist. Make these ahead of time. If you forget to bring bracelets sometimes other festival goers are generous and will share their bracelets with you.
Remember to pack these items when you’re getting ready for your next festival experience. You’ll be glad you came prepared.
