Pack Your Bags: 8 Festival Essentials

Pack Your Bags: 8 Festival Essentials   

Music festivals are as much about style as they are about music. The fringe, the boho hair, the flower crowns—getting a look together that’s effortlessly cool is all but a prerequisite to attending. But, knowing what to pack can be harder than actually scoring tickets. Before you get the show on the road, we’ve rounded up our favorite finds for head-to-toe festival ~feels~. Consider this your official inspo.

Cool Kicks

Depending on the state of the grounds themselves, and any mosh pits that might ensue, you might not want to go with exposed toes. Plus, you don’t need an excuse to be comfortable. These silver metallic faux leather high tops bring the edge and the ease.

Cross-body Bag

Every festivalgoer knows a cross-body bag is a must for toting essentials in a secure way. But beyond just function, form is an equal must. This embroidered leather carryall has all the festival vibes—bright color, embroidery, fringe—in one crazy-cute pouch. It’s the kind of arm candy that stands out in a crowd.

Boho Hair

Tousled waves for days are a festival signature. The best way to reinvigorate unwashed hair (because you know there won’t be a shower in site) is with a texture spray. Cuvée Champagne Spray delivers that piece-y, bed heady wave in every spritz for a lived-in effect that still feels clean.

Broadspectrum Sunscreen

Those festival grounds have no shade. And hours out in the sun can mean some serious rays. This sunscreen is oil free and water-resistant, so no matter how much you sweat dancing to your favorite bands, it’ll stay put.


Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen Broad Spectrum 50, $19,

Glimmering Glow

If there’s one makeup product that wins a festival beauty look, it’s a highlighting stick. Milk’s Holographic Stick is like liquid gold in a solid. You can use on your lids, lips, and cheekbones to give yourself all kinds of shimmering angles.


Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Golden Peach, $28,

Concert Tee

Even if you’ve never heard of half the bands playing at the show, somehow, rocking a vintage concert tee gives you major music authority—and just looks authentic. Period. We love this Blondie number because Debra Harry is the original cool girl.

Water Bottle

So, obviously you need your H2O to stay hydrated out there on the circuit, but no ordinary water bottle will do. This Swell sport bottle not only keeps your drinks cool for 24 hours and has a handy clip so you won’t lose it, but the pink and blue ombré design is giving us a major unicorn moment, which is always a good thing.


Swell Artemis Sport Collection, $40,
