Here's what's in my festival bag

It's officially festival szn!

There are tons of amazing products out there for your perfect festival looks. With so many options, festival season is the perfect time to play with you style and try new things. BUT it’s important to make sure you have all you necessities settled before you go. Here’s some must-have items in you festival bag!

1. Clear Bag

Having a clear bag is all the rage and a good investment, since many concert venues are making it a new standard to have. This makes concerts and festivals safer for both you and the artist.

2. Glitter

It’s an absolute must for festival season. Whether it be a sparkly highlight or your covered in it, it's a look. So make sure you pack a little extra in your bag, so you're always ready to shine.

3. Sunblock

As we venture into festival season, the hotter it gets. With the sun out and ready for the music, it’s important that you're ready to protect your skin. This is a must-have for any outside activities.

4. Hand Sanitizer

This is a better safe than sorry situation. Festivals have so many things to touch and do, so it’s nice to have a handy little sanitizer in your bag, to make sure that you’re ready for whatever is coming, whether that be food from an amazing food truck or if you just accidentally touch something yucky. These are easy to attach to your bag, so they don’t take up too make space, but you can also bring wipes to clean off anything or anyone.

5. Chapstick

We’re making a loop back around to taking care of our bodies. In the warm weather, it’s easy to get chapped lips, especially if you’ve been singing to songs all day. So make sure to pack a little tube to keep you feeling fresh.

6. Sunnies

These are a must-have to not only protect your eyes but also to “complete the look.” There are so many fun sunglasses styles and colors, that you can find the perfect one to fit your festival aesthetic.

7. Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is the key to surviving any music festival. Be sure to check the website of your festival to see their rules and regulations, but most will let you bring in an empty water bottle. These ones with the straws, are actually amazing because you don’t have to worry about taking off the lid, making them super convenient and easy to use.

8. Portable charger

These are so useful to have, especially if your taking tons of pictures for the ‘gram and videos of all your favorite artists. It’s so nice to have a portable charger to keep your battery going. You can buy a cute little power bank like this or invest in a charging phone case.

9. Camera

Bring a digital camera or a Polaroid camera is a great way to live in the moment and keep the memory alive. Digital cameras are fun because you can go back and relive all the memories once you develop the film. A Polaroid, on the other hand, gives you that instant satisfaction. Either way, they’re both a great way to capture the moment.

10. Last, but not least YOUR personal goods

Make sure to pack anything you know you’ll need when you’re far from home. It’s important to make sure you have your personal necessities.

If you’re going to a music festival this season, we hope you have fun and stay safe!
