Summer time is rapidly approaching and that means one thing: music festivals. Coachella lovers everywhere are looking for the next music festival to attend, but this time you might want to be a little more prepared beyond your usual cut-off shorts and laid-back vibes. After all, you do have to return back to the real world at some point, and you don’t want to feel as though you’ve been hit by a Mack truck after a weekend jamming out. Here are 7 things you should take with you to your next music festival to keep you feeling good even after the weekend is over:
8 Things to Take With You to Your Next Music Festival
Music Festival Look
The first thing you will consider when you head to a music festival this summer is What am I going to wear? Music festivals are known for their laid-back vibes with eccentric clothing, many times a throw back to the vintage Woodstock days of the 1960s and 1970s. You can keep up this look with a hippie-chic dress like this one from Dolan. With its ruffled bottom, pinstripes, and airy flow, it is perfect for those hot summer days. The tribal-esque strings in the back are vintage of the 1970s.
A great set of earrings can completely update your look to the boho chic that you are going for at your next music festival. A pair of lightweight leather earrings from Lavish Leathers are perfect for an all-day music fest. They are so light that you don’t even notice you’re wearing them, but they offer all the design and detailing you would expect from a heavier pair. They also give you that 70’s vintage look that is popular at music festivals. They have several different styles, designs, and colors, so it will be easy to find something that adds to your look for every day of the festival.
You can pair this dress with a pair of strappy sandals from Cocobelle. The Sabri Sandal has a small wedge that gives the feminine look you want without the pain (and the difficulty of walking in grass) of heels. The cork wedge is comfortable and cute, and the thick criss-cross straps will make you reminisce about those days in the 90s.
Finish off your look with a swipe of Face ATELIER’s Lip RX in Prim Rose. The subtle yet stunning color looks good on everyone and it is good for your lips. It is a sheer lip conditioner that soothes, moisturizes, and protects your lips from the dry desert heat or lack of hydration in the summer months. It also provides UV protection from the sun and is full of antioxidants and vitamins.
Music Festival Health
Keeping yourself safe and healthy is key to a great experience. It is also key to not feeling terrible in the days following the music festival. One thing is certain, no matter which festival you attend there will be people. Everywhere. And with lots of people comes lots of germs, and usually a few port-a-potties. Elyptol creates hand sanitizer spray, gel, and wipes that leave you feeling clean without all the typical chemicals associated with generic sanitizers. These sanitizers are made with essential oils and botanicals like eucalyptus that naturally and safely cleans your hands without drying them out.
Made with the the powerful essential oils of the eucalyptus plant combined with the naturally-derived ethanol they have created a hand sanitizer effective enough for hospital use so it’s definitely good enough for your next music festival. With an unprecedented kill rate of 99.9999%, Elyptol is in a category of its own with the highest industry standards of efficacy in hand hygiene. Elyptol also makes it easy for you to bring everything on the road with you. The convenient carrying case can be put in your purse, or you can hang your spray or gel onto your keys or bag.
Lack of hydration, more booze than you should probably consume, and long days out in the sun mean one thing: headaches. Migraine Stick offers fast relief from those impending headaches by using essential oils like therapeutic-grade peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils all in a base of fractionated coconut oil. It is easy to stop those headaches before they even start, naturally, with Migraine Stick.
Music Festival Recovery
One of the most important things you can do for yourself and your body while out at a music festival all day (or all weekend) is to stay hydrated. Metta is a powerful drink created from Chinese herbs like rhodiola for your mind, ginseng for stamina, astragalus for your immune system, and schisandra for adrenal protection. It not only keeps you hydrated but also gives you energy naturally. Metta helps to elevate your physical and mental performance without the use of caffeine or stimulants. So when you feel yourself start to wane throughout the day, you can drink Metta to help you naturally get your energy back.
Metta is also vegan friendly, gluten free, caffeine free, and contains no sugars or stimulants, making it safe and healthy for you to consume. Its refreshing taste will leave you feeling hydrated and energized even after being in the sun all day.
Nothing can beat hydrating yourself with something as simple as water. Santevia takes your ordinary water bottle one step further with its alkaline recovery stick. The stick allows you to change your tap water into hydrogen-rich and antioxidant powerful water that helps speed up recovery after a long day (like out partying at a music festival). Alkaline water can help speed up your muscle, skin, bone, and brain recovery so you can recover faster from your drinking, eating, and screaming the words to every song.
All you have to do is put the Santevia Recovery Stick inside your water bottle and within three to five minutes you will have better tasting and better-for-you water that will boost your body’s natural recovery process. Say goodbye to the music festival hangover and hello to your body’s natural performance state of awesome.
Music festivals are fun – there is no doubt about it. And the best way to get the most out of your music festival experience is to get the perfect look, to keep yourself safe and healthy, and to prepare for your recovery after a long day in the sun. These 7 items will help you to have an even better music festival experience (and in the days following).
