Summer Concert Packing List

Summer Concert Packing List

What to bring: The Ultimate Music Festival Packing List

Festival season is upon us! Be ready with our list of must-have accessories and essential necessities for the concerts on your calendar!

1. Bag

If there is one item you should bring with you above all, to any summer concert, it’s a bag. When considering which bag to bring, you must evaluate the length of your stay. For those staying for the entire festival we suggest bringing 2 bags. One to keep with you at the festival to hold credit cards and cash, as well as a bag to leave at your camp site with sleeping/hygiene accessories safely stored inside. For those dropping in for a day, or only a few hours, we recommend something light and hands free like a crossbody, backpack or a colorful fanny pack! It is a festival after all!

We suggest: 

For over-nighters: The eBags eTech 2.0 Weekender Convertible

For day-trippers: The Michael Kors Middlestone Drawstring    or     Patagonia Lightweight Travel Mini Hip Pack


Michael Kors Crossbody


Patagonia Fanny Pack



2. Phone Case

Your phone, and a proper phone case are essentials that any concert-goer should never go without. Other than carrying a phone for safety reasons, phones will be your best friend for Snapchatting, taking pictures, and of course, posting all of your favorite concert moments to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

We suggest:

For the clumsy: Lifeproof iPhone Case                                           For the cool: Sakroots Artist Circle iPhone Case

3. Scarf

You’d be surprised at how much a scarf can come in handy! We love tying ours to the straps of our bag. It’s an easy way to bring it along wherever you go, and its always in an accessible place for you to grab and quickly tie around your head or wrap around your shoulders in unexpected rain storms! Not to mention it looks super cute!

We suggest: Yala Lightweight Fringed Pashbu Scarf

4. Back Up Chargers & Charging Cords

The last thing you want to do during a concert festival is to let your phone die. Think ahead and bring a portable charing station! This way you and your friends can stay connected while being able to look up directions to local foodie joints and most importantly connect to wifi find your way back home!

We suggest: Digital Treasures Charge It! Battery Station Pro

5. Sunscreen

There is nothing sure to ruin a day faster than a painful sunburn! Protect yourself against harmful UV rays with some sunscreen. Most brands sell travel-sized tubes that fit perfectly in any bag!











6. Sunglasses

The best part of attending summer festivals is that you get to enjoy the music outside! Don’t let the sun block your view of your favorite performer or band, gear up with some stylish sunnies.

We suggest: SW Global Summerwood Wayfarer Fashion Sunglasses







7. Cooler

While you may not be able to bring your cooler onto concert grounds, you will be able to keep it in your tent! There is nothing better than coming back to your tent with chilled beverages and snacks at the ready!

We suggest: eBags Crew Cooler II
