10 Summer Festival Essentials!

10 Summer Festival Essentials!

The weather is warm, and we have just entered the height of festival season. Whether you’re a festival aficionado and plan to traverse the country chasing the music or a festival newbie hitting your first festival or two this summer, you still need to be prepared. That’s why we’ve created this list of festival essentials (with handy places to purchase them, too) for both camping and non-camping festivals that’s sure to keep you dancing all summer long! We’ll be hitting both Elements Lakewood Festival from 5/25 through 5/27 and Disc Jam from 6/7 through 6/10, so this list is for us, too!

  24. 8. Solar Charger

  25. (37)
  26. If you don’t want to be running your car for hours at a time (or killing your car battery and potentially stranding yourself), bring a handy solar charger and harness the power of the sun, which is (almost) always abundant at festivals.

  27. 9. Hammock

  28. (38)
  29. While these may not be much help in the desert, if you find yourself in the woods for your next camping festival make sure to carry a hammock so you can get in those power naps before your favorite sets.

  30. 10. Custom Flag
