Festival Survival Kit

Guides

Festivals represent unique, unforgettable, and exciting moments, but they do have their downsides.

Experience is a skill, but you don’t need to have a hard time at a hundred festivals to know what to take with you for any unforeseen event. We’ve got you covered with this festival survival kit, so you’ll have everything you need to keep up the pace at all times.

 

The basics 

Here’s the list of essentials you need to bring with you.

  • A bum bag

With several internal compartments and as comfortable as possible. Forget about bags, pouches or any other option to carry all your stuff. You won’t find more practical festival gear.

  • Mobile phone bag

You’re going to love it! It’s a safe way to keep your smartphone with you without the risk of it getting lost or damaged by a bump.

Convenient opening for that cool selfie with your favourite artists and easy to close, even if you’re really into the song they’re playing.

  • Portable battery

Recommended even for everyday use. As much as we’d like to, mobile phone batteries fly after a few hours – imagine when you’ve got so many things to record and photograph!

  • Sunglasses

Don’t miss the highlight of the festival just because you’re getting a full sun. Sunglasses are a must for summer days. And, well, so you don’t get dark circles under your eyes even at night.

  • Glitter

I mean, basic, basic festival wear may not be basic, but what would an event be without glitter? It certainly wouldn’t be among the most memorable festivals. Throw it in your bum bag and see how everyone loves it.

  • Comfortable trainers

Leave the sexy flip-flops and high heels for relaxing moments. You’re going dancing, jumping, running, walking, and a lot of it! So the important thing is to take care of your feet as much as you can.

  • Cash money

We already know that at festivals inflation shoots up 300%. Cash is not for a brutal t-shirt you see in a shop (unless they don’t accept any other form of payment). The ideal is to reserve it for situations of maximum need, in case your card or mobile phone fails.

 

Hygiene and health

Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s move on to another essential: hygiene and health! Read on if you want to look your best and be prepared for any possible mishaps.

  • Collapsible water bottle

Make sure it’s as full as possible. Maintaining your hydration level is key if you want the festival to remain a beautiful memory.

  • Sun cream

On the first day it’s fine to jump in with your heart racing and the sun warming your skin. On the second day, when it starts to sting, it’s not so much fun. Plan ahead and slather on the sunscreen as much as you can.

  • Hats and caps

Really, don’t put your face on the line. Enjoy the shade in your eyes and nose in the morning and it will save you a lot of grief.

  • Dressings

If you’ve been to festivals before, you know you’ll need them. If you’ve never been before, trust us, you’re going to need them.

  • Tissues

A classic! And very useful in countless situations. It doesn’t matter how many you take. None of them will come back.

  • Personal grooming kit

Going to festivals doesn’t mean neglecting your health. You know, take the basics like a toothbrush and toothpaste, dental floss, make-up remover, soap and shampoo, etc.

  • First aid kit

Hopefully you won’t have to use it, but it’s better to be safe. It takes up less space than a toiletry bag and has everything you need in case things get complicated.

 

For the camping

Finally, rest is (almost) as important as having a good time. No one wants to go around looking like a zombie because of a bad night’s sleep, so take note!

  • Sleeping bag

A bit obvious, but inevitable in a festival survival kit. Don’t skimp on thickness, it gets cold at night.

  • Tent

It’s seductive to sleep under the starry night, but if you want some privacy at some point, you’ll need your tent.

  • Laundry bag

t were you planning on doing with your festival clothes these days? A bag, a suitcase, a zippered basket. Anything will do.

  • Towel

As much as you love the great outdoors, we recommend it. You’ll be more comfortable sitting, lying down, playing cards, rolling your cigarettes – you’ll be the envy of the group!

  • Folding chairs

One level above the towel. For a real rest after several performances. They can even be used for a nap.

  • Bikini or swimming costume

If it’s summer time, it’s going to be very hot! Apart from the ambient temperature, you are thousands of people in a few square metres.

  • Rain jacket

Only if you are bothered by summer storms or want to avoid getting your clothes soaked and ending up with a cold.

  • Mask and earplugs

In case you are not an easy sleeper. It’s not usually necessary because tiredness does the job by itself.

  • Potatoes or biscuits

Or sweets. Or nuts. Or cereal bars. Just avoid getting caught unprepared by the munchies as much as possible.
