As the summer festival season kicks off, thousands of music enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating the vibrant atmosphere and electrifying performances that define these unforgettable events. Coachella, the iconic music and arts festival that opened the season in April 2023, set the stage for an incredible summer of music, fashion, and celebration.
However, for those who missed the opportunity to attend Coachella, fear not! The double weekender by Splash House awaits you in August with an exciting line-up that includes house hitters, such as Brazilian superstar Vintage Culture, and longtime scene favorites, such as crossover songstress Aluna. To ensure you’re fully prepared for this immersive experience, let’s explore the ultimate list of summer festival essentials.
Summer festivals often occur under the scorching sun, so staying hydrated is paramount. A hydration pack, such as the CamelBak Classic or Osprey Hydraulics Reservoir, is a game-changer.
These backpacks feature a built-in water reservoir and a tube for easy sipping, allowing you to stay refreshed without missing a beat. With their lightweight design and high water capacity, hydration packs ensure you’re ready to dance and revel in the festival atmosphere while keeping dehydration at bay.
Besides hydration packs, sunglasses are crucial to protect you from the sunny weather. Top-of-the-line lens technology can protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, and polarized lenses can also help reduce the glare from the stunning light displays of festival stages. More than a helpful tool, however, sunglasses are also great accessories that can help spice up your outfits.
Just look at how trendsetter Kylie Jenner often adorns her Coachella festival look with sunglasses. In 2023, she paired her white ensemble with shark fin molded Burberry racer shades. For regular glasses-wearers who want to copy that style, there’s no need to worry about dry eyes and contact lenses either. Even glasses-wearers can recreate this look piece-by-piece or find their own unique pair of prescription sunglasses online, whether it’s another iconic style by Burberry or one of the classics from Ray-Ban. Morgane Speed, the content editor at Lyst, suggests bigger, oversized silhouettes from the likes of Prada if you hope to match the top 2023 summer trend of the Lyst Index.
In today’s digital age, capturing memories and staying connected are integral to the festival experience. With a power bank, you can charge your phone and digital cameras, ensuring you can capture stunning moments throughout the festival.
The Anker PowerCore Essential 20K is seen by many to be one of the best power banks on the market. One shopper writes: “I love that it accepts USB-C charging and that it has two out ports. I bought it because I love attending music festivals and needed the extra battery life, which this is perfect for!” With a fully charged phone, you can easily capture epic moments, share experiences with friends, and navigate the festival grounds with ease.
Practical and fashionable, fanny packs have become a staple at summer festivals. These compact bags allow you to keep your essentials close while keeping your hands free for dancing, mingling, and immersing yourself in the festival atmosphere.
They’re stylish as well! Just see how celebrities Josephine Skriver and Keke Palmer pulled off fanny packs with neon green pants and a boho brown outfit respectively, during Coachella 2022. Give this trend a try to ensure your valuables stay safe throughout the festival.
