Summer heat can be quite troublesome to deal with. Sure the weather may be sunny, making it an awesome day to spend time dancing around with friends and such, but the sun can blind you from being able to get a great set currently playing on stage. Equipping yourself with a hat can be some great help with that, it’ll keep the sunlight from hitting your eyes and makes you look really trendy.

Not only that but keeping the sun away from your face will guarantee a lesser chance of gaining sunburn, which is something you really don’t want to deal with. Personally, I tend to wear my Disco Snapback whenever I go to the festival, not only is it really cool looking but it helps keep the heat off me quite well.

Mirrored Sunglasses.

Drawstring Backpacks.

A handy backpack is really necessary for any festival goer. You don't want to end up losing your keys and belongings right...? Trust me, I've lost a ton and these bags are life savors.

The best kind to take with you is a light style that leaves enough room to store all your important supplies. You also want it to be able to sling over your shoulders without having to worry about losing any important items. Drawstring backpacks have actually become quite popular as of recently because of this. The strings themselves barely dig into your shoulders unlike other backpacks, when worn for long periods of hours. And unless you have a place that you can leave your bag safe and sound, you’ll most likely be carrying it on yourself. As for colors, most people opt for some really tye-dyed look so try to get yourself a really colorful one, making it easy to spot in case the worst happens and matching it with your own crazy outfit.
