Music Festival Survival Tips

Music festivals are in full swing all around the country and with summer right around the corner, they don’t look like they will be ending anytime soon. With long day parties and seeing as many bands as possible in a short amount of time. Music festivals are a great place to find out about new music that you may have never been exposed to. While festivals may be a ton of fun they can also be tiring. You are spending long hours in the sun and with little sleep.  Here are some tips for dealing with the heat, exhaustion and other things you may encounter.

Protect yourself from the sun

Don’t forget to protect your skin – Sunburn would not be fun on the first day at the festival. Remember to reapply throughout the day. Sunglasses or a cute hat from Apricot Lane Boutique could help out with protecting your face from the sun.

Have a plan

Make sure you have a strategy for your day. You will want to schedule time for naps or time to rest especially if you will be in the sun all day. You can plan a nap while the bands you didn’t care to see are playing and be fresh and ready to go while your favorites hit the stage.

Snacks and water are a must

Depending on the convenience of getting food and how hot it is you may need something quick. You should carry snacks like trail mix, Granola bars, apples, and meal-replacement bars. This will help you keep your energy up and having you going strong in-between meals.

You should plan on carrying a water bottle with you at all times. Dehydration and other heat-related injuries are common at music festivals.  Also remember that alcohol is dehydrating, and can be worse for your body in the heat than not drinking at all. If possible, stock up on purified jugs of water before arriving. Some of our Apricot Lane stores carry S’well water bottles which provides access to clean water for developing countries around the world and leaves your drink cold for 24 hours!

Footwear and clothing

You should pack extra clothing for the weather. It’s a good idea to have something light for warmer temperatures along with an extra layer to keep you warm at night when the temperature drops. Even though you will most likely be wanting to wear sandals and open toe shoes during summer music festivals, you should also pack closed-toe shoes just in case. Check out Coachella Music Festival’s Top Fashion Trends for more on what to wear for music festivals.

Bring a flashlight

You might think useless but having a flashlight with you while at a festival may come in handy when having to navigate in the dark to use the port-a-potty.

Don’t bring anything you don’t want to get stolen

Bringing your brand new camera to a music festival may sound like a good idea at first but you may regret it later and never get those great shots you were hoping for. If you will have your smartphone with you make sure you have a protective case that will save it after falling into the water or mud that could be present. Be sure to carry in your purse or backpack to keep it safe. It may be a good idea to invest in a solar charger so you don’t have to stand in the long lines to charge your phone up. Some of our Apricot Lane stores carry wristlet clutches for example, is a Mighty Purse that has smart phone and iPhone chargers built-in!
