It is meant to squeeze in as many bands as possible to draws crowds to these events. The diversity of music artists is meant to appeal to appeal to different groups of people and music lovers.

These festivals are fun but it can be tiring and challenging at times with such a huge crowd in attendance. It is best to prepare and approach events like these with the proper mindset in the case of any incident or discomfort that may come with big crowded festivals. To see some cool videos go here.

How to Prepare:

  • Research the artists and their music
    • Music festivals usually have various musicians, artists, and acts incorporated into the show. You will enjoy and relate to them more if you know their music and their songs.
  • Make friends
    • Especially if you’re planning to go there alone be open to making new friends. You’ll have more fun if you feel you belong there with a lot of people.
  • Secure yourself
    • You are in-charge of your own safety and security while at the festival. Make sure that your surroundings as well as the people around you are not a threat. Report to the authorities for any suspicious activity
  • Apply sunscreen
    • Sometimes music festivals are a whole day event or might even take days. Protect yourself from the sun by bringing and applying sunscreen.
  • Plan the events or artists you wish to see in the festival
    • There is a program prepared with the artists and their performance schedule. You don’t have to attend all of them, you can choose to attend only the activities you want schedule rests in between events.
  • Hydrate
    • Some music festivals are held outdoors so be sure to bring enough water to keep yourself hydrated.
  • Bring nice clothes you don’t mind getting dirty
    • Look fashionable for the event. Take awesome pictures. Since these events take a whole day, you will need a change of clothes to keep yourself fresh and in case someone accidentally spills drink on you.
  • Bring toiletries
    • Music festivals are crowded places and sometimes there might not be enough port-a-poppies. Bring some basic toiletries to keep yourself clean.
  • Carry a flashlight
    • You might need to use a flashlight at night, especially in places which are not well-lit to avoid tripping over stones or people. 
  • Make sure to bring your tickets
    • This is probably the most important things you need to bring other than money. You can’t get in if you forgot this.

 

Have fun!
