Pack Right, Party All Night! A Complete EDM Festival Camping Checklist

Want to combine your love of EDM music and camping? An overnight camping EDM festival could be the right fit for you.

Before you head out, double check with this list that you have everything that you need for a fun and successful overnight festival experience.

Here's a complete EDM festival camping checklist.

For Your Campsite

Here are the essential items for your campsite.

  • Folding chairs
  • Sun canopy shade
  • Tent
  • Tent marker or flag
  • Tarp to lay under the tent
  • Tent stakes (with a mallet to put them in)
  • Sleeping bags/air mattress
  • Pump for the air mattress
  • Pillows and sheets
  • Lights and lanterns for inside and outside your tent
  • Insect repellent
  • Trash bags

The most important thing for you to bring to your campsite is a tent. This will give you a place to take a break when you need to and to take a nap in between sets.

Other things to consider bringing are solar chargers, a multi-tool, and speakers. Another good idea is to bring a headlamp for when it gets dark out so that you can make your way around and to the bathrooms.

Baby wipes will be a lifesaver after a long day out at the festival. You'll soon find that you quickly get a thick layer of dirt covering your body and face. The baby wipes will help you get that right off.

When You Enter the Festival

Every day, you'll need to walk back-and-forth from your campsite to the festival. Make sure to grab these few things before you hit the concert.

  • Tickets/wristband
  • Cell phone/two-way radio
  • Wallet with cash and/or credit cards
  • Backpack
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Concert schedule and map of stages
  • Food and drink cooler
  • Snacks
  • Lip balm
  • Earplugs
  • Outdoor blanket

If you don't want to fuss with a large backpack, fanny packs are also a great way to bring the essentials with you into the festival. There are now fanny packs with neon lights and even speakers.

Bringing hand sanitizer or baby wipes with you inside the festival isn't a bad idea either. This is also handy for when you are using the portable toilet area. 

Miscellaneous Items for Your Festival Camping Checklist

Here are some miscellaneous items that are helpful to bring while camping.

  • Your daily medications
  • Pain relievers
  • Emergency first-aid medical kit
  • A mirror
  • Toiletry kit
  • Toilet paper

Other fun items to bring are things like hula hoops, playing cards, glow sticks, puzzles, and beach balls. Getting into the EDM festivals style apparel with fun hoodies, sequin hoods, and leggings will help get you into the right mindset for the weekend.

Important items you need to make sure to pack would be portable chargers for your cell phones. This will help you keep your phone running throughout the night.

Also, if you wear glasses or contacts, bringing extra sets of these is a smart decision. If you end up losing your glasses by mistake, you won't have to worry about being blind for the rest of the festival.

Most Importantly, Have Fun!
