HOW TO PACK LIGHTLY FOR A FESTIVAL
Festivals are some of the best inventions since sliced bread. However, you have to be properly prepared to enjoy them to the fullest.
The devil is in the details, indeed.
Something apparently minor, like forgetting your sunglasses at home, can soon become your worst nightmare.
1. Always have your ID on you.
In case the festival access is made based on a printed ticket, make sure you take that as well. If you’re underage, you should present a written parental agreement.
First, you have to make sure you’ve got enough clothes for your entire stay. Then, you should pack entire outfits, not just separate clothing items. See what goes with what and be ready to party.
Make sure you don’t pack overalls. We know how cool they are, but they’re not reliable, especially because going to the toilet would take you 5 hours.
Have a rain-cloak and rubber boots. True heroes care about their health. While we’re here, accessories are important, so don’t leave home without sunglasses.
Nobody leaves home without a toothbrush.
But take care not to forget a shower gel, toilet rolls, deodorant, towels and a hand sanitizing gel. Of course, dry shampoo can make your life easier.
Ear plugs and eye masks can come in handy if you’re staying in the festival camping, depending on how much the party keeps going during the night.
4. A Bag to Rule Them All
You need a huge backpack to carry everything to the festival. But once you get here, you will find a tiny backpack comes in handy – to keep your tiny possessions with you all day long.
5. Surviving a Festival In Style If You’re a Girl
Light and flowy dresses are a must at a festival, and they have to be accompanied by funky hats. Since it’s recommended to cover your ears anyway, might as well do it in style.
Bug sprays can come in handy, especially if you’ve got sensitive skin.
Wet wipes are not recommended as shower replacement, but there are situations when they come in handy. If there is any kind of emergency you need to solve on the spot, wet wipes are great. But take care of how you dispose of them, as they contain plastic fibres.
6. Make Camping Great Again
Regardless of whether you want to wash your hair or will just clean it with dry shampoo, extra towels are always terrific life-savers. The most useful thing you can do with one, as a camper, is to dry it after a short episode of rain.
Water, ice and everything nice. It is best not to live the essentials up to someone else. Depending on the festival, you may be allowed to bring your own water. In case you can only use the camping water, make sure you bring a cooler – especially if your festival takes place during the hot season.
