When we think of spring and summer time, we can really only think of one thing: Music festivals! That’s right. This time of year, millions of spectators come enjoy the biggest and brightest musical talents from all over the world put on some of their best shows at festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Hangout, Burning Man, etc. These festivals are all about letting loose, living in the moment and making memories, but how are you supposed to do that with a bag full of stuff that you have to lug around? Well, not to worry!
Our top 5 music festival essentials:
Refillable water bottle
It’ll be hot, you’ll be dancing all day and night and we all know how expensive the drinks can get at these festivals. So, bring along a refillable water bottle, like the Polar insulated plastic bottle
, to not only save some money, but, most importantly, stay hydrated! They are easy to carry with a great grip on the bottle and have a bunch of cool designs to choose from. Keep hydrated so you can enjoy the festivities for longer! Fashion accessories
Hats at these festivals are essential, and now more than ever there are so many cool styles of hats to choose from! Right now we are LIVING for the hats at Nordstrom
. They have a large selection of hats that are perfect any type of style you may have. The Snapback hats
are huge right now, and Nordstrom has various styles to choose from: simple, colorful, or creative! Don’t forget your shades, too! Our personal favorite brand is Ray-Ban, because they have this classic look that’s great for any occasion on any one person. Right now we are obsessed with the Clubmaster selection from Ray-Ban
. It’s a classic, sophisticated, trendy style that will put the finishing touches on any look; especially your music festival outfit! Toilet paper
Have you seen those porta potties? We have, and it’s not pretty. No one knows what all goes down in those things, and, honestly, we don’t really want to know. Plus, they will absolutely have the toilet paper that we would barely call one-ply. So, do yourself a favor and bring a roll of toilet paper. Sunscreen
Listen, we all love a good tan, but let’s be safe about it! No one wants to come back home with a bad sunburn. We only want the happy memories; not the painful ones. Coola has great choices for sunscreen
, and has different levels of SPF to choose from for that safe tan you’re looking for. myTaTs
Last, and certainly not least, are the temporary tattoos from the Festival Collection
at myTaT.com! These inspiring temporary tats are the perfect way to express yourself in the open and accepting environment of the music festivals. With tats like the infinity sign

and even a sugar skull
, you’ll have the best accessory to show off who you are!
