Festivals are something most of us make elaborate plans for. The scheduling starts weeks (or even months) before the actual date. It is an undeniable fact that if you have your troop of friends along, you’ll have a great time. And of course, innumerable stories to tell to those who somehow missed the fun!
There are a few things you should bring with you to a festival so that your fun won’t mellow down later. So, we’ve compiled a festival essentials list of the most important things to pack for a festival!
You can change the list as per your personal preferences. If you think we forgot something super important, make sure to let us know in the comments below!
1. Portable Charger
A festival makes for a good opportunity to upload your pictures and check in on social media. Also, your phone is a handy camera for all your exciting selfies. So carrying a portable charger with you is necessary.
Of course, you can no longer tell your friends that your phone “ran out of battery” when they ask why you didn’t reply.

So you’re dancing in full frenzy, deep into the night, listening to loud music. But you suddenly feel total exhaustion and an urge to indulge in deep slumber. Your onesie comes to the rescue! If you don’t know: a “onesie” is loose sleepwear that you can easily put on and lets you sleep comfortably.
3. Rain jackets
We agree that Google has made looking for weather predictions child’s play. But still, you need to check regularly to stay up to date. Missing a heavy rain warning and finding yourself completely drenched in rainwater sucks. You should bring a rain jacket or a raincoat to save yourself from facing such situations.
Unlike shoes and sandals, flip-flops are a lot more comfortable to wear. Festivals are large gatherings, offering huge opportunities to explore and roam about. Your flip-flops will not cause red rims on your calves or will not get muddy or wet like your shoes. Do remember to carry an extra pair, because they may break quite easily!
Your festivities are incomplete – and dangerous – without a pair of decent earplugs! Whether you’re on the festival site or relaxing in your tent at night, earplugs come in handy.
6. Toilet Paper
We’re not kidding when we say toilet paper may save your ass (pun intended) sometime. Instead of feeling sorry later, carry them with you to the campsite.
The scorching heat in the open festival areas can quickly ruin your fun. In order to embrace the sunshine, make sure you pack a good sunscreen in your bag when going to a festival (even if you’re looking for a sun tan!).
8. Sleeping Bag
Sure, the organizers have done their best to provide an unforgettable experience. But they are not so gratifying when it comes to your sleeping arrangements. Also, the experience of spending a night under the canopy of stars is indescribable. So carry your own sleeping bag and have a peaceful slumber amidst the wonders of nature!
It can be dark and hazy once the lights go out. Your excursions into the wild can become less scary if you’re carrying a lantern or a flashlight to show you the way. Also, it’ll help you in locating your tents and sleeping bags if you’re tripping on the booze you had!
