The Festival Essentials List
If you’re heading to a festival this summer there are a few things that you absolutely can’t survive without! In most cases you don’t actually realise until you end up paying an over inflated price inside the gates. We’ve put together a small list of the essentials to make your festival the best it can possibly be!
Even if they make you empty it, a drink bottle is definitely an investment. Getting dehydrated is definitely not ideal, especially when you want to stay up all night and keep the good vibes going. Make sure you grab one with a resealable lid so it can travel with you wherever you go.
Fanny packs are the best way to keep your valuables secure while you’re in motion between stages or trying to hustle up to the front of a crowd. If you shop around, there’s normally quite a few styles and sizes available. You can either make a fashion statement or simply slide a more subtle one around as a belt. Just make sure you fit everything you need in before your friends notice you have one.
Breaking news: looking after your skin is in fashion! It takes less than 30 seconds to apply sunscreen to any vulnerable areas and avoid painful showers for the week after. There are quite a few options that you can also use a moisturiser
Best case scenario you won’t actually need it. Second to best case scenario, you’ll still be able to wear that cute outfit in the rain, underneath a transparent and super practical poncho! You can grab ponchos from most dollar stores. They fold up small enough to slide into your back pocket.
If you’re going to be staying more than one day, a portable charger for your phone is definitely a must have! Using Snap chat and taking photos is a sure fire way to drain your battery so make sure you don’t get caught under 20%.
