Get Ready To Embrace Your Inner Festivalgoer In Just 5 Minutes

The number one in your "music festivals list of things to bring" is of course, your ticket! But there are so many thing you might just have missed.

If there was something that can pull you away from a relaxing day with yourself, it's perhaps tickets to a rad music festival. Whether it is watching your favourite band perform, hanging out your favourite people or just chilling with some good food and booze, music festivals are the perfect place to be. 

But while as perfect as they are to hang out at, they can be quite testing, especially of your style. Yes, that's correct! There are a couple of things you need to bear in mind before you head out to your favourite festival and we're here to help. 

1. Secure your tickets

The number one in your "music festivals list of things to bring" is of course, your ticket!

It should be the first thing in your bag, just to be sure. After all, you’ve spent a lot on that ticket only to later find out that you’ve left it when you’re already halfway to the venue.

If you’re not a fan of camping or if there are no camping grounds available, make sure to secure your accommodation as well.

You can search for hotels or inns near the venue. You have to be quick though, because places like these get fully booked easily during festival seasons.

2. OOTD is the key

Anyone who has ever been to a music festival knows that OOTD is as important as the festival ticket itself (for real).

If you’re having a hard time deciding what to wear, check out Instagram and Pinterest posts for styling ideas. And if you want to play around with clothes, you can also work out some DIYs. 

However, comfort should always be your priority. If you’re not comfortable wearing heels at a festival, then don’t. Music festivals are meant to be enjoyed. Don’t ruin it for yourself.

3. Glam up!

While there's no guarantee that your make-up will stay in-tact until the end of the festival, it is worth a shot to try your best. Our pro tip: spray your makeup setter twice--once before applying foundation and once after you're through and you should be good for six to eight hours. After all, it’s still part of your OOTD game!

Don’t be afraid to play with colours and shapes, either. Music festivals are not just about the music, they are also about expressing yourself. And you can do that with your makeup. 

But why stop at just the makeup. How about experimenting with your hair too?

If you’ve been eyeing those bloggers with bright hair colors, music festivals are a great excuse to finally try it yourself! There are a lot of things you can do with your face and hair but of course it still depends on you whether you want to go all out or opt to go with a simpler look.

4. Double check your bag

We get that you’re excited and all, but please make sure that you’ve got all the things you need before you run out of the house. It's important that you check your music festivals list of things to bring to spare yourself the hassle.

Things at the festival can get pretty messy so it’s a wise move to pack essential things like wet wipes (or tissues) and alcohol or sanitisers. You might as well pack a waterproof jacket as well because you can’t be sure with the weather nowadays. Don’t want to ruin the clothes and makeup, do you?

Make sure you got your gadgets on full battery and bring power banks or extra batteries just in case.

Of course, don’t forget to bring some cash! It’s kind of self-explanatory. Some festivals might not allow outside food so you have to buy them on site.

5. Enjoy the party!

Another important one you can’t miss out in your music festivals list of things to bring is a friend. However, if you’re alone, you can always make some friends! You need someone to jam to the music with.

Whatever the case, you’re at the festival to enjoy so let it all out! Sing along to your favourite jams and dance the night (or day) away.
