Summer is in full swing, and so are many of the big music festivals around the world. As a veteran attendee of many concerts and festivals, I can say, there’s nothing quite like live music and being a part of the energetic atmosphere! Another thing I’ve learned? There are a few things you should always make sure to pack, that I consider music festival must-haves! Here they are.
Portable Phone Charger
A dead phone is the last thing you want to deal with at a music festival, especially if you get split up from your group. Having a backup battery case or portable phone charger will save you all the troubles and let you keep up with festival happenings on social media and of course, snapping all the photos and videos your heart desires.
Whether you’re fair-skinned (like me) or not, you’ll want to apply sunscreen prior to heading out for the festival. These days tend to be pretty long, so be sure to carry a small bottle with you to reapply. Otherwise you might be dealing with a few days of aloe and an unfortunate sunburn! Also, pack a pair of shades! Squinting/not being able to see things because you’re blinded by the sun is never fun!
Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths
When it coms to outdoor music festivals, the bathroom situation isn’t always pleasant. In fact, more often than not, there’s a serious shortage (or complete outage) of toilet paper. Carrying your own stash with you will be a HUGE lifesaver. Trust me on this one! Plus, Cottonelle® with CleanRipple® Texture is designed to clean better, so you’re clean & confident enough to go commando. These boxes are easy to stow in your bag and will keep you and your crew feeling ready to rock out!
Building on the above-mentioned bathroom situation, hand sanitizer is a must! It also comes in handy when dealing with any food/drink and just all the germs in general.
You never know when the sky’s going to open up above you and have a torrential downpour begin. Pack a poncho (one that’s a little sturdier so it’s not clinging to you like saran wrap) to keep yourself (and your belongings) dry. It makes dancing in the rain so much better!
Here’s your chance to win an awesome festival kit filled with Giuliana Rancic’s “must haves” including: Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths with CleanRipple® Texture (so you can rock out confidently this summer), a floppy hat, makeup setting spray, tinted moisturizer and moleskin!
In addition, be sure to enter the Cottonelle® sweepstakes for a chance to win an all-inclusive trip to Wanderlust 108 Festival in Miami, taking place October 22!
