Music Festival Event Hacks and Tips and Skills To Live By
Music Festival events are the rave nowadays. The young and carefree crowd do save up tons of money just to attend and hear their favorite bands on stage. Some could go for a whole day, and if you are an Eventurer you would go hard or go home. In which case, you’ll chose to stick with the former. We are all Eventurers by heart and it is imperative that if we choose to attend an event we prepare for it – from our outfits to our must haves. Here are a few hacks and tips to live by and we hope you find delight in our Eventurer’s guide to surviving music festival events.
Apart from your cellphone, here are some event must haves you should arm yourself with whenever you are attending a music festival
Event Must Haves 1: Dry Kit
Obviously, it refrains your gadgets from getting soaked and wet when there’s an out pour of rain in the middle of the Music Festival event. They can be easily brought at malls, or sometimes, at the event proper themselves. My companion once bought a dry kit in Boracay and it was a gadget saver when big drops of rain started pouring from the clouds. It’s no fun enjoying an event if you know that the aftermath of it is your gadget getting lost, or worse, getting soaked.
However, the same cannot be said to our other companion, who claims that his camera was swimming in the pool of water inside his dry kit and he only found out at the end of the day. It turns out he wasn’t able to securely lock his dry kit. So before buying one, make sure you read and understand how to securely lock your gadgets inside.
Event Must Haves 2: Power Bank
Personally, I don’t have one. But the dire need for my cellphone to be charged every now and then is apparent. #IAmAnEventurer who is always on the move and I can’t afford to lose access to the digital world. I’m pretty sure you also want to capture all the bands that will be performing on stage and that is why you need a reliable power bank that could capture that worthy IG story. Right now, in the market, Anker is making waves as one of the best power banks both for iPhone and Android.
These are just some of the essentials. Now, it’s time to talk about being comfortable throughout the Music Festival event. I enjoyed making the event hacks and tips on the second part because I somehow benefited from this. Here’s to hoping you will find the following Music Festival event hacks and tips guide useful.
Event Hacks and Tips 1: Use belt bags
Personally, I am a backpack person. But I learned from my father that in crowded places, belt bags are easier to manage. Whenever we travel international, he would put all our passports, documents and pocket money for the day in his belt bag. They’re compact, light, and hard to be pickpocketed from by other people. You can put your essentials here and you can be assured that your gadgets are in order while enjoying the music festival event. You can find hip and stylish belt bags at Etsy.
Event Hacks and Tips 2: Rompers is a no-no
Uhm, need I say more?
Event Hacks and Tips 3: Ditch your umbrellas and jackets. Use beanies or bonnets, and scarves instead when attending a music festival and other outdoor events.
Personally (how many times do I have to say this in this article), I don’t like carrying umbrella in my bag. It’s heavy and a space eater and I don’t want to walk on the street with my back aching. In lieu of umbrella, I carry a bonnet instead. It is lightweight and can protect my head from the sun and light rain all the same. I also carry with me an infinity scarf lounging around my neck. Not only is it stylish, it is equally useful to when the sun is too hot to handle. I just pull it all over my head. While covering an event once, I simply put on my bonnet and wrap around my precious DSLR in my scarf that easily to protect myself from the light rain. I just make sure to find a suitable cover before it starts raining cats and dogs. Here’s also a simple guide on how to style your infinity scarf. Find out how at Wikihow.
