Festival Season Essentials: What to Pack for International Music Festivals

It’s almost festival season, and this year, there are tons of great music festivals worldwide. To get the most out of your experience, you need to make sure you bring the right items. We know it can be daunting to plan what to pack for festivals and overnight camping, so let us help you start with some suggestions to make your life easier.

Packing, Storage & Carrying

Make sure you pack everything you need and can carry essentials around comfortably with these picks.

The Insider Packing Cubes (Set of 4)

3 black packing cubes

Pack your bags efficiently with a set of packing cubes. They keep your items flat, organized, and protected, with water-resistant material and a mesh panel that allows you to easily see what’s inside without needing to open everything.

Customer Review: I always resisted using additional packing accessories, but decided to try these after seeing my wife's use of them. I'm glad I did - they're super lightweight, take no room when they're folded up, and they are great for keeping my different groups of clothing separated and organized so that if I'm going from hotel to hotel, it's super easy and fast for me to find and put away things. Highly recommended! -Fred W.

Veckle 2 Pack Clear Fanny Pack

a black and clear and a pink and clear fanny pack with items inside them

Fanny packs aren’t just a silly trend from the ‘80s. They’re super helpful to carry around at a concert or festival to keep your belongings close and easily accessible. You can wear them around your waist or as a sling bag across your chest. These fanny packs are clear, making it easy to find what you’re looking for and they comply with any venues that require clear bags. This two pack lets you share with a friend or gives you a different pack to wear on different days to match your festival outfits. 

Customer Review: I used this for the Taylor Swift eras tour and it held EVERYTHING! I have never had a stadium purse that worked this well. It fit all my friendship bracelets and was still within stadium guidelines. I will keep this for every concert I ever go to! -Savvy

Customer Review: Bought this rolling cooler, not only because it’s on wheels, but the handle is long enough for my tall husband so he doesn’t have to hit the back of his legs when pulling it. Also keeps things nice and cold. Hard to find a cooler that actually works good. -Jen8005

Water Bottle Holder with Strap

2 water bottles with black straps

If your water bottle doesn’t fit in your bag of choice, invest in this water bottle strap so you can carry it around hands-free. It’s adjustable, so it can fit different-sized water bottles, and it can be worn as a cross body, on your shoulder, or just used as a handle to make carrying your bottle a little easier. If the festival allows you to bring reusable water bottles, they are a must for staying hydrated and saving money on overpriced bottled water.

Customer Review: I bought these for our water bottles when we traveled and knew we would be walking a lot. These worked perfectly. Would 100% recommend to anyone. -D

Camping Gear

Have the best camping experience with these camping essentials.

Kodiak Canvas Flex-Bow VX 2-Person Tent

a white and green tent

This tent is great for festival camping. It fits two people and is made of breathable, waterproof materials, ensuring you’re safe from the rain and cool in the sun.  It’s easy to put up and comes with four windows and two storage pockets inside, giving you plenty of room for your belongings.

Customer Review: Bought this tent for an annual fishing and camping trip. This year, I camped for 4 days. It rained every day, and it rained hard with heavy wind. This tent stayed unbelievably dry. All of the other campers (and there were a lot) had nylon tents and they all got wet. I was the envy of the group. In addition to the ability to keep the rain out, the quality on this tent is so high. It is clearly going to last for many years and lots of use. Hard to describe how well it is made. Only regret is that I didn't get the bigger model. -swagadelic
