7 Day-Into-Night Festival Essentials

April 6, 2017 • Feel Good / Fun

It’s that time of year again—music festival season! Here are 7 essentials to keep you looking fresh and fierce all festival long.

Coachella 2017 is starting off with a lineup that includes everyone from Kendrick Lamar to Local Natives, so you’ll need to be prepared to play from sunup ‘til…well, probably sunup again. Paring down your packing list can be tricky, so here’s our 7 must-have items:                                                                                            

1.Sun Protection

This one goes without saying; if you’re planning on spending all day in the sun, protect yourself. A funky pair of sunnies is an easy way to add some flair to your festival outfit (day or night), and sunscreen never goes out of style. Pack your favorite formula, bring extra, and reapply often!

2.Water Bottle

Staying properly hydrated throughout the day is key to enjoying the weekend to the fullest. Bring a reusable water bottle so you can save money and the environment by avoiding  disposable plastic bottles at the venue.

3.Ear Plugs

Whether you’re planning to be front and center for the Lady Gaga concert or dancing the day away at the Do Lab stage, your ear drums will thank you for bringing some ear plugs. They’ll also come in handy at night if you plan on getting any sleep!.

4.Multi-Use Scarf

Find a lightweight scarf in a vibrant print, and it will serve you well as more than just a fashion statement You can tie up your locks during the heat of the day, keep warm at night in the cold desert air, or pull it up over your face in case of any dust or sand storms.


Nothing says ‘music festival’ like using a port-a-potty with hundreds of other people! You won’t be sorry you packed extra hand-sanitizer. Bonus points if you attach an LED light keychain for when nature calls after dark.

6.Skincare Essentials

You may be in the middle of the desert, but you can still look fire in those Instagram posts if you keep a golden-hour glow all day. With its compact size and replaceable AAA battery, the LUNA play  makes taking off that festival glitter (or grime) a breeze. Combine it with the FOREO cleansers for the ultimate skincare squad.

7.Portable Phone Charger

Your LUNA play  doesn’t need a charger, but (unfortunately) your cell phone does. And with all those other Snapchat fiends vying for a signal, your battery will drain faster than usual—a lightweight power bank is something you don’t want to be caught without.

With these crucial items tucked away in your waterproof tote, all you’ll have to worry about is making sure your two favorite bands aren’t playing at the same time!
