  1. Sunscreen is a must in my bag. I’ve never thought about a hand fan though. I’m going to a music festival next month, I’ll have to find me one. Great tips!

    • Thank you! I fully planned to bring my SPF 100 cooling sunscreen with me, but festivals don’t allow aerosol cans! The stick was a lifesaver. We just sprayed ourselves down at the hotel with the cooling [aerosol] sunscreen, and brought the stick with us to reapply throughout the day.

  2. You are so right! Especially about the sunscreen stick! It’s an incredibly useful thing to have any time you will be outside for several hours.

    • I’m soooo pale I have to reapply several times throughout the day! Haha. Sure, the spray sunscreen would be easier, but I can’t name a single festival that allows aerosol cans, so the stick is a great alternative!

  3. Haha, I’m trying to think of how many of these things I packed the last time I went to a music festival… None of the above. Lol. Not even water, which was a mistake. Next time! Thanks for the tips!

    • Haha I didn’t bring any of these to my first festival either! But you live and you learn 🙂 Bringing an empty water bottle is a must though! Most festivals get so hot, it’s super important to stay hydrated to keep your energy up!

  4. This is the perfect guide and I found it just in time for festival season! Thanks for sharing your tips I definitely have to remember the fan and the sunscreen stick, it gets hot in a crowd full of people.

    • Glad I could help! I overheat easily, so the fan is an absolute must for me. Plus it’s so cute, people were asking me where I got it all weekend! 🙂

    I always forget packing a hand fan. I have a must-pack essentials bag that I grab things from for every trip, so I’m going to add my fan to my bag now! Thanks for the reminder, and for the great tips!

    • Thanks! I love my hand fan, I take it everywhere. Festivals, fairs, concerts, wherever! It fits nicely in my purse, and it really does help cool me down and keeps my makeup in place!

  6. Sunscreen stick? A towel that cools by snapping? Wind bag? What are these things and why do I not know about them??? I don’t even go to music festivals and yet I’m going to pin this for later reference!

    • They’re not just great for music festivals, but summer activities in general! And check out the “pin it” button at the bottom of my post 🙂

  7. A wind pouch sounds like the perfect thing for a music festival – and I definitely wouldn’t have thought of it! Definitely need this list for summer festivals!

    • They’re great for when you just want to chill out in the back of the lawn! And they’re better than a blanket because they roll up MUCH smaller. I love them!
