    • Thanks! We already have our tickets for the Forecastle Festival in Louisville this year. We are also going to see the Gorillaz in the Red Rocks Amphitheatre 🙂

  1. Some very helpful tips, Anna! We have a handful of festivals here in Austin and I’ve used a couple of these tips myself. I would recommend bringing a reusable water bottle to refill at the water stations so you don’t have to buy one. I haven’t heard of the Forecastle Festival before but will look it up. Thank you for sharing these tips!

    • Thank you! I’ve never been to Austin, but it’s definitely on my list. Forecastle Festival is a great smaller festival with great bands, I would definitely look into it!

  2. This definitely is a great guide when attending any music festival and goes very well with me as I am planning to attend few this year. Thanks for such great tips

  3. This is super helpful. I’ve been planning to visit a few festivals this summer and didn’t really know where to start. Thanks for the tips!

  4. Great tips! I agree with your suggestion to walk back too. Traffic is usually so bad at the end of these festivals, since everyone is trying to leave at once, that it’s often faster to walk anyway! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Thanks! Traffic is always terrible after festivals, and surge pricing is crazy, so I always walk. It’s fun to find things along the way too!

  5. I’ve actually never been to a music festival, but these look like great tips! I didn’t know that a lot of festivals don’t allow aerosol! I only use aerosol sunscreen so that’s helpful for me to keep in mind!

    • Thank you! I had no idea until the week before we left! I usually use aerosol too. Honestly the sunscreen stick is one of my favorite festival items. I cannot praise it enough.

  6. What a great post! I totally agree about the suncream stick (I’m super pale) and the keeping mementos – I’m far too sentimental and can never throw away wristbands haha. That first photo is amazing btw – I love your hair and I think I actually have the same heart shaped sunglasses 🙂

    • Thank you! I cannot praise the sunscreen stick enough! I’m so so pale, I have to reapply every hour lol. And I keep my wristbands too and keep them in a shadow box!

  7. Thanks for sharing these tips. I’ve never been to a music festival before, however, the Mr desperately wants to. Bookmarking this for the future.

    • Music festivals are great! There is a festival for every taste. I personally don’t enjoy huge festivals like Coachella, I prefer smaller crowds. Finding the right one for you is the trick! Hope you and the mister find a festival you love!

  8. Some great tips. I will definitely be going to a few festivals this summer so it’s go to remind myself what to do / and not to do 🙂 For me the most important thing is to locate the bathroom, because I tend to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated 🙂
