    Hmmm, not the worst tips I've seen, but far from the best:

    Hair – Loose hair at a longer festival isn't advisable, since before long it'll look crappy, and generally get in the way. Just keep it braided or out of the way to avoid unnecessary hastle.

    Fanny Pack – Good idea, but don't mix creams/liquid and unprotected electronic. Put the liquids in a separate compartment, or clear plastic bag. Also invest in a waterproof fanny pack for added protection from the elements.

    Sunscreen – Consider spray on sunscreen, since it can be easier to apply. Matt spray sunscreen for the face will avoid that greasy look.

    Cash – Definitely take it, but don't keep it all in one place, incase it gets stolen or lost.

    Solar Charger – Not ideal for festivals, as they need to be out in the open to work properly, which increases the chances of theft, and/or rain damage. Just take a regular power bank, so your gear doesn't have to be out while charging.

    Lanyard Shower Caddy: Good idea, as long as you have toiletries that can actually fit on the lanyard.

    Umbrella Beacon: Although beacons are a good idea, an umbrella will be utterly impractical at most busy music festivals.

    Water Jug Lantern: It'll be nowhere near as effective as an actual tent lantern, which cost a mere $5, and can actually be hung up to a tent hook.

    Foam Tiles: Festival goers already have a lot to lug around. Adding a big pile of tiles to that would be a huge hastle. Also, those tiles are not designed for sleeping on. A proper sleeping mat (e.g. the self inflating kind) will be far superior for sleeping, and far easier to carry.

    whah the bathroom thingy was  a great idea!

  6. Jenn says:

    That umbrella looks like garbage. No thanks.

    And seriously. Wearing 2 day old hair in the heat and dirt?! Stay the hell away from me, nasty!

  7. LAYPaulina says:

    NOPE. You cannot bring umbrellas, nor most of the liquid products shown here. :/ Only maybe your water, not in all of them…

  8. Brittany Heimer says:

    Yeahhhh this won't work at warped…

  9. Kessy Mar says:

    Gonna need those hacks at Warped

    I don't know how it is in the big festivals but you l can't bring umbrella in festival teritory only in tent city. I'm kinda pissed that I can't bring water with me , it's not fun to wait in endless lines for expensive water when it's hot outside.
