Music Festival Checklist

While you may not need every item on the list for your next Music Festival Adventure we wanted to create something of an “Ultimate Music Festival Checklist”. So use the comprehensive list as a guide to help you make sure that nothing is left at home and forces you to try and find one in a new town.

We have also created a PDF version of the Festival Gear List for easy printing. The list not only check boxes but also a line for you to easily write down the quantity, simply go and get it here: Music Festival Gear Checklist.

Don’t forget to check out our other Music Festival Guides and list of Music Festivals for 2013.

    A large {golf} umbrella is a must have for these events. In a downpour you can stay much dryer than with just a raincoat/suit plus if there is a fire going,the umbrella acts as a reflector to both heat and dry you. Saved me many times when the option was to give up and crawl into the tent. Would have missed some great times.

    Baby Powder!!! It will keep you from chaffing which is never fun. You can use it in your hair to make it appear clean (4 sweaty days without a shower eww) and you can also put it on your blankets and bedding to make them feel dry after the dew has fallen :)

    First Aid Kit should contain packets of ORS, (oral rehydration salts/solution). We’ve been to many music festivals where proper hand washing facilities were few and far between and people with dirty hands reaching into your cooler. Bacteria runs rampant in these environments and in some instances 30-50% of our friends have been taken to area hospitals for IV fluid rehydration, due to vomiting and diarrhea. You can find recipes on the CDC site or just mix: 1 liter of bottled or distilled water, 3Tablespoons sugar, 1teaspoon salt. Take small sips as often as possible until symptoms go away.

    baby wipes are great when you have that not so fresh feeling ( or smell) great for that possible bath
