A refillable bladder for your backpack equals convenient, hands-free hydration. Just make sure it's empty before entering the festival grounds!

Portable Phone Charger

Most music festivals have plenty of charging stations, but who wants to spend their day sitting next to an outlet? A portable phone charger will help you keep your devices juiced while you're on the go!

Blankets

A few blankets are packing must-haves. Not only will they keep your festival outfit from getting filthy, they're also the perfect way to claim some space in the crowd for you and your friends to sit and chill.

Water Bottle & Mister

As mentioned before, staying hydrated at music festivals is key. Bringing drinks into the festival grounds is strictly prohibited, so keep an empty water bottle or canteen on hand and fill it up inside! Having a well-made misting spray bottle can keep you cool in the heat, especially with limited shaded areas available.

Bandana

It can get pretty windy out there, causing dust, dirt and pollen to fill the air. Bandanas provide the perfect protection (especially if you have allergies). Plus, they can really add some flare to your festival 'fit. Am I right?!

Sunscreen

Spending the day out in the hot sun can take a major toll on your skin, and sunburns are never fun. Keep a tube or bottle of sunscreen with at least SPF 50 for maximal protection.

Sunglasses

Just as your skin needs protection from the sun's scorching rays, your eyes also need shielding!

Hand Sanitizer

Music festivals are known for their surplus of delicious food, so make sure you enjoy it all with clean, germ-free hands. That way, you'll go home with tons of memories (and no sicknesses)!
