Festival Camping Checklist

There are several types of music festivals, but this list will get you ready for whichever one you attend.

Tents and Air Mattresses

So, you're prepared to spend a few nights celebrating life with your friends.

Sleeping under the stars seems romantic now. But you might change your mind in the event of inclement weather. Having safety tents is a plus.

Also, invest in a tent that will hold several people. It's a great way to keep everyone together during the festivities. You could even add an air mattress to make it even more comfortable.

Sleeping Bag

Along with a tent, sleeping bags are another great buy.

When you sleep outside, the temperature can drop in the early mornings. You don't want to be unprepared and stuck without adequate warmth.

A Cooler for Food and Beverages

You don't want to be at a festival campsite without a cooler full of cold beverages.

There are plenty of affordable coolers that will keep your items cold for a long time. Be sure to get a large one to hold enough things to last you the whole time you're there.

Portable Phone Charger

Music festivals see an average of 32 million people every year.

With those many people attending, getting lost in the crowd will be even easier to do. Not to mention it's sure to be one of the most fun experiences you can think of having.

You'll want to be sure and have plenty of phone battery, so you don't lose your group. Another reason to keep the battery charged is to capture memories.

Battery Powered Lantern

Of course, bonfires are the best when it comes to festival ambiance.

Buying ponchos in case of rain can never be a bad move. Also, hoodies are a great way to stay warm in case the weather turns colder than expected.
