Whether you’re a festival newbie or a seasoned festival go-er, you stumble upon the question “did I pack everything?”List making is crucial in festival planning. From things to pack and daily outfits, things can get extensive real quick. While every list is different, these 5 things should be on everyones list. I’ve gone to Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, CA for 3 years (I’m still an amateur) and this year will make my fourth. These are things that I have concluded are necessities for any festival goer.
1. BABY WIPES
If you’ve ever attended a music festival you know how dirty things can from being out and about all day. Especially in the desert. Oh and if you’re camping and don’t have a hotel to come back to, baby wipes are a must. Your body is sweating all day while dancing and raging with your friends and all that dust being kicked up won’t be settling back down on the ground. That dust will be sticking to your beautiful self. So having baby wipes back at camp will have your body thanking you. A quick wipe down with these will having you feeling so good.
Let’s face it. Music festivals are places to go to get your beauty rest. You can get a blowup mattress and have a comfy set up in the tent but that won’t mean anything with the constant noice. People party. They party all night long until they feel the need to pass out. What does that means for people who like to get some shut eye and not rage all night? That means you probably won’t be getting a whole lot of sleep. But this is where earplugs will come in handy and I will definitely be bringing them this year. After 3 years, I’ve learned my lesson.
3. SHOWER SHOES
Public showers are gross and that’s the honest truth. The last thing you want is to be stepping into the shower with bare feet touching god knows what. The first year I went to Stagecoach, I forgot shower shoes and had to use my good sandals. I was not very happy about that. So the next year I made sure to grab some cheapie ones like these here. With shower shoes you will be preventing yourself from getting any fungal infections and not ruining your favorite sandals ;). This will make your camping shower experience so much better.
This seems like a no brainer. But when you’re packing and your excitement can’t be contained you forget to pack the most obvious things. Obviously being in the sun all day you’re sweating and going under water misters that can cause sunscreen to wear off. So having some on hand and in your backpack that you’re taking into the festival will definitely save you from a painful sunburn.
5. EYE DROPS
Dirt. Sun. Bright lights. All of these things can cause your eyes to be irritated. The dust out in the desert is unreal and if that wind starts kicking up you better hope to have a bandana to cover your face and some eye drops. Having irritated eyes is the worst especially when you can’t do anything about it. That’s why having a bottle of Clear Eyes Pure Relief® Multi-Symptom eye drops is a must have for any festival.
My eyes get really irritated from all the dust and grit going on at the festival and towards the evening is when you really start to feel it. Clear Eyes Pure Relief® Multi-Symptom preservative free eyes drop comes in multi-dose bottle at retail in the US and delivers up to 12 hours of relief. Your eyes will be thanking you for getting these.

These are my top 5 things to bring to a music festival. I will be posting my entire list on the blog soon so keep an eye out for what I’ll be packing. This year we are getting an RV and I’m so thankful for not tenting it this year. I love camping but this RV thing is going to be a nice treat.
