To me, camping festivals are ONE MILLION times better than city festivals. Better vibes, better people, and the party goes all night! However, things can get a little dicey if you don’t bring the right items. I learned the hard way that in order to have an amazing experience, it’s all in the gear!
Below you will find my essential camping festival packing list that I personally use and love!
Camping Festival Packing List
Festival camping gear I use at each and every music festival
Because glitter is plastic, which is SO bad for the environment!
Clothes To Bring
warm clothes for nighttime (jacket/sweatshirt)
underwear and extra socks!
closed toed shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy
rain boots (for when everything gets flooded and walking to the bathrooms)
2 pairs of cheap sunglasses (I always lose mine!)
bandana for the dust
Laura’s 7 Camping Festival Tips!
Your phone will die, so bring a couple portable chargers, and when charging your phone in the car, make sure not to kill the car’s battery! Happens every year! Also, make sure you set a meeting point at the end of the night with your friends in case your phone does die.
Designate a spot in the at the sets viewing area where you and your friends can go! That way if someone wants to venture off, they can find you guys later
Don’t be a #mainstagequeen! My favorite sets have actually been ones I wasn’t expecting or I didn’t know the artist. Festivals can be stressful if you’re only focused on seeing certain people – let loose and explore! It’s about the vibes and the experience after all!
Always make sure your camel pak is filled and drink lots of water!
PLEASE BE SMART and if you’re going to buy drugs from strangers – GET THEM TESTED! So many people OD’d at festivals this year because their drugs were laced with Fentanyl. Be careful.
Attend a workshop or go explore during the day!
If you find someone who is lost or anxious, try and be a good person and help them or find some help.
