The most important things to take to a music festival

No matter the event, the excitement of a music festival may cause you to leave something behind. Here’s a list of reminders:

Cash, cash and more cash

No matter how much you plan your spending, you are bound to run out of money! Spontaneous spending is unfortunately unavoidable, especially when you are in party-mode, it is as if you are determined to make your experience as amazing and memorable as possible- too right! However, on a serious note; bring emergency money, refill water bottles (instead of buying new ones) and be weary of your alcohol consumption, alcoholic beverages are generally overpriced at these type of events.

Correct, looking stylish is significant. Defending your eyes? Much less cool, far more essential. The sun in your eyes all day is actually more dangerous than you think, your eyes are sensitive so it is imperative that they are shielded on a very sunny day where they will encounter a great amount of sun exposure. Also as it gets later the stage lighting, SFX, and LED laser systems can be very damaging and make your eyes sore. So remember your sunny’s, and an extra pair- just in case!

A spare phone

In this day and age, almost everyone at music festivals carry a smartphone.  Whilst great for social media, photos and videos throughout the day, they have a poor battery life. Staying safe and in a group of 2 or more is important. But taking a cheap, basic phone (with relevant numbers) as well as your smartphone ensures that if your phone was to die, you have back up!
