Music festivals are events that everyone should experience at least once in their life, but they can be quite hectic and dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.
A music festival usually contains a few things: camping in an open field for days, friends, your favorite artists, and certain X-factors with inebriating properties that will remain nameless for all intents and purposes. It can be one of the greatest experiences of your life or scare you away from festivals for the rest of your life. Here are a few tips on how you can stay alive during a music festival so you can enjoy it to its full potential.
- Drink Water
No matter what, you must remember to drink plenty of water. The sun beating down on you all day, plus walking/dancing, and other dehydrating factors make drinking water essential.
- Take a Break
When you are under the hot sun, heatstroke can happen easily. Consuming inebriating substances only increases dehydration, so it’s important that you find some shade and take a break between your favorite artists.
- Bring Your Medication
If you rely on medication to keep you alive, make sure to take it with you! This can include an inhaler, antihistamines, antidepressants, and more.
- Bring Extra Underwear
You’ll thank us later.
- Pack Shower Wipes
You’re going to get sweaty and stinky, and shower wipes can bring you back to a socially acceptable level.
- Pack the Electronic Essentials
This includes things like your cell phone, camera, a solar-powered charger, flashlight.
- Practice Safe Sex
If you meet your significant other while you both are listening to your favorite band and things get spicy, don’t forget to wear a condom to prevent sexually transmitted infections.
- Use the Buddy System
With so many people crammed into one place, cell phone service will be spotty. Always travel with a buddy and decide on a spot to meet if you get separated.
