The small things count. Bring a portable charger, bug spray, a fanny pack (they’re back in style), ear plugs, a medical ID bracelet and your meds (especially allergy meds).
If you’re camping, load up your cooler, but don't bring anything in glass containers, because they're rarely permitted. Want beer? Bring canned brews. You won’t be allowed to take drinks inside the festival grounds, so carry an empty, reusable water bottle to fill up once you're there. Don’t worry, the vendors will gladly sell you more beer. Also, bring Gatorade for the mornings, because you're sure to need the electrolytes!
It will cost you a pretty penny to buy your food from festival vendors. A better option: Bring snacks. You’ll be surprised how hungry good music and sunshine make you.
Never skimp on the party favors. Must haves include glow sticks, flash tattoos and neon headbands. No, you can’t bring fireworks.
Don’t come back smelling like a wet dog. Bring deodorant, toothpaste, toiletries and shower supplies. Pro tip: Bring dry shampoo and facial wipes to avoid paying for overpriced showers.
