We’ve put together some basic tips to keep in mind while preparing for these festivals. Read on to find out how you can have the most comfortable experience.
• Prepare for all weather: Music festivals are not always at the most optimum time of the year, and most of them run all day and well into the night. Remember to prepare for every sort of weather condition that may occur. Even if you think you’re on top of the weather because you’ve checked the forecast, pack some essentials, including a jacket or hoodie, extra leggings, innerwear, and comfortable shoes if you aren’t wearing them beforehand.
• Body Jewelry: Body glitter, stickers, and jewelry at a staple of most music festival aesthetics. Remember to think of these beforehand and figure out if you’re comfortable wearing them. There are a ton of people who have allergic reactions to the chemicals and resins in these products, which can turn very problematic during a fest.
• Footwear: Remember that you’ll be attending most of the event standing up, dancing, and running around. While fancy heels and footwear are always exciting, they may not be ideal for these situations. Wear footwear that you are comfortable with, which doesn’t hurt your feet. Always keep an extra pair handy so that you are truly prepared for any situation which may arise.
• Clothing: Music festival outfits can range anywhere between casual and comfortable to cute and put together. This is a decision which is entirely up to you and how you wish to feel about yourself throughout the event. Keep in mind that weather conditions are prone to change, so keep extra clothes handy if you decide on shorts or thin garments. Moreover, most music festivals have terrible planning for restrooms, and the best you’ll find are porta-potties. Wearing rompers and jumpsuits may not be a good idea here since there will be more effort involved.
• Carry-ons: A small bag or backpack is a must to keep all your essentials. Most stuff that you take with you to the festival will get lost, stolen, or just generally misplaced if you’re not exceptionally careful. Don’t carry too much money or anything valuable. Your bag should include basic supplies for hygiene, such as tissues, napkins, and sanitizer, a change of clothes, a shawl or wrap around, and any medication you might need. Keep your phone, ID, and wallet close at all times. If you feel like bags are such an odd addition, make sure to take one that’s cute and goes with your outfit.
• Accessories: Again, keep in mind that there are very high chances of you losing anything valuable you choose to bring to a music festival. However, this doesn’t mean you avoid the accessories entirely. Simply choose to wear things that you aren’t majorly attached to so that you can risk losing them. Keep them light so that they don’t constantly get in your way or smacking those around you. Bracelets, charms, and anklets will always be in, so don’t worry too much about whether your accessorizing is appropriate.
We hope that this has helped get you prepared for your music festival. Hopefully, you’re super excited and all set to go. If there are any more suggestions you can think of, do let us know. Happy music festival time to you!
