Coachella kicked off the start of the outdoor music festival season back in April. Live music festivals are everywhere and in full swing as summer flies by us. You wait patiently for the day to arrive weather it be at a local venue or it involves a road trip. Either way you are completely stoked for the day to come. The last thing you want to worry about is getting soaking wet from the rain or having the drunk girl ahead of you spill her 13th beer all over. Yes, they both happened to me.
So, from past experiences, I've come up with a few essentials you should pack in your shoulder bag.
The three most important things being a travel size bottle of hand sanitizer, wet wipes, and a rain poncho. Portable restrooms have improved greatly over the years, but you may get one that doesn't offer a working sanitizer dispenser. Don't forget some bug spray.
I always pack two sharpies, black and silver. If you get in on a meet n' greet, it's nice to have a marker handy. Taking along something for the band to sign? Place it in a zip-lock for save keeping. You know, from the rain and/or flying beers.
