Good practices in a festival

Going to a festival requires a certain amount of organization and some good practices to guarantee a pleasant and safe experience. Among these, the choice of bag for example. So we’ve put together a little checklist for you of the essentials to have at a festival.

Before moving on to the list, don’t forget to respect the basic festival principles:

  • Have fun!
  • Share!
  • Respect other festival-goers and the artists.
  • Take care of yourself! ✌️

Checklist for a peaceful festival trip!

Before leaving for a festival, it is essential to prepare a list of essential items to take with you. Among these elements, we recommend :

  • A shoulder bag(the fanny pack): you would be tempted to take a good old backpack, but, BE CAREFUL, thefts remain numerous and are very easy with a backpack. Also, think of the other festival-goers, I don’t think they really want to get kicked in the pit! The shoulder bag is more practical, always close at hand, light and less disturbing for others! 🍌
  • Comfortable shoes: if you are staying several days, it is better to be comfortable the whole time! 🥾
  • Sun cream: yes, the weather is nice, it’s hot and you’re going to spend your day outside, often in a very open place and in the middle of the countryside. So protect yourself from UV rays otherwise you risk ending up like a tub of vanilla/strawberry ice cream. It’s not pretty and it hurts really bad! Bonus protection: the hat !👒 Classy & refreshing!
  • Water, water always water, although bottles are prohibited at festivals, try to hydrate yourself as much as possible before entering. On site you may or may not have the chance to benefit from free running water. 🚰
  • Some useful medications: heat, alcohol, street food… 💩 If you want to avoid a painful & embarrassing moment, take an immodium or a smecta in your bag. This will make your beast super powerful and ready for war. Ditto for the difficult next day, a little doliprane will do good. Be careful though, doliprane damages the liver (like alcohol) so to avoid migraines: don’t drink too much, drink lots of water and if despite everything it hits, you can use peppermint or balm tiger! 🐯🪴
  • Handkerchiefs and other papers : we don’t think about it enough, but sometimes there are small shortages at festivals, a pack of tissues can save your life!
  • Sweater and scarf: warm during the day, cool at night! You’ve been dancing all day, you’ve been sweating, so you’re damp and when night falls you’ll quickly feel the difference. A little piece of clothing to warm you up will do you a world of good! 🧣

Bonus advice : How not to lose your friends at a festival?

There are many, many people at the festival. They are sometimes even called “small ephemeral towns”! That’s saying something! Losing friends at a festival can therefore be a source of stress, especially when conditions do not facilitate communication. Music and shouting sometimes make communication very complicated! And then we all have that friend who runs off for no reason and disappears! To avoid finding yourself in this situation, several tips can be put in place:

  • A recognizable outfit: remember Pink Guy ? You probably know him as Joji by now 😎, in any case it can be a good inspiration to be well recognizable at a festival. Without being so extreme, remember to have a colored hat, or a recognizable t-shirt!
  • The meeting place: A good idea when you remember it! 😂 Use in moderation, because it’s all about trust!
  • To get on stage ? Mh not the best idea, but in some festivals it’s OK to do it! ✌️

Moment of calm rhymes with play between friends!

There are always little moments of calm during a festival, but the fun never ends! 😜
