Festival season is in full swing! Going to a fest this summer and feeling a bit clueless? Fear not, below you’ll find our list of the must-bring things you need to stay safe, healthy and of course looking and smelling great!
The list below is useless if you’re not able to get in.
If you’re going to be outside all day, you need to use sunscreen, even if you can’t see the sun behind the clouds. Bright sun can wreak havoc on your skin and walking around all day with the kind of (liquid) diet you tend to have at festivals can lead to fainting and all kinds of bad things so make sure to start the day with some suncream!
It’s incredibly fascinating what living in a tent and warm weather can do to your body odor. Make sure to bring a good anti-perspirant!
4. Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo lets you keep your hair clean and smelling fresh without using the often crowded and dirty festival showers everyday. If you’ve ever had a festival shower you’ll know why this is a good thing…
5. Hat and Sunglasses
To protect your face and eyes from the sun, but also to hide greasy hair and tired eyes.
It’s nice to be able to wander around without worrying about what you’re actually stepping on.
7. Hand Sanitizer and Wet Wipes
Sharing a sink with thousands of other people will invite more bacteria than keep them away.
Bringing a big glass bottle of perfume to a festival is just asking for trouble. Believe me, you do NOT want to break bottle of scent inside your tent. These handy little things won’t take up too much space in your back, can be brought along when you head out to the stage area and will ensure you smell lovely at all times!
It’s always better to be too warm than too cold. Maybe you’ll even find someone who wants to share the blanket with you? 🙂
In case of rain, or in case you get a bit emotional after a couple of beers, watching your favourite band with your best friends.
