Wait – this festival doesn’t include clean underwear?

What did you forget to pack for a music festival?

Let’s face it, you didn’t remember everything.  We can’t even think of everything, and we’re the experts!

We’re going to give you the benefit of doubt and assume you packed your tent, toothbrush, tickets, deodorant and clean underwear.  (If not, let us know, and we’ll write a blog on how to get up and leave your house properly).

This is a list of 5 simple things that we have noticed are not included in everyone’s festy stash, but should be.


Reusable water bottle

Please. Don’t grab a case of 8oz disposable water bottles.  Contribute to humanity a little and bring a reusable water bottle and something larger filled with water.  Did you save that GatorAde cooler from your last NCAA Championship win?  Great.  That will do.  

These guys are prepared for a music festival!



Anything, no matter how small, to mark your tent.  Put an inflatable monkey on a stick, or hang a giant flag.  Just mark your space so you and your friends can find it.


Duct Tape

You will need it for something, trust me.  While you’re at it, might as well buy some of that fancy duct tape and learn how to make a bowtie!

Baby Wipes

Always.  We call these “Butt treats.”  You’ll figure out why.


Small Flashlight

Something with a clip or ‘beaner that you can have with you at all times, like when you need to use the portapot, or when you drop something while dancing.  You can usually grab  small keychain LED for under $10.
