Before starting our music festivals survival guide, let’s make a short summary of the most exciting events this summer featuring some of the best live singers, bands, and DJ’s the world has to offer!

Camping Tips

Why should you consider camping as an opportunity? Of course staying at a hotel or hostel is more comfortable, however, it won’t allow you to experience the excitement and authentic atmosphere of a music festival fully because you will be too far from the crowd and all the action. Staying at the camping city will give you the maximum experience and emotion from the event because you’ll be completely absorbed by the music, fun, and festivities!

How to choose a good spot? You need to plan in advance! Do some research, look at the festival gear guide or read a few articles about festival camp ideas to learn more about the event, destination, and the opportunities that it offers for accommodation and food. How to choose a good tent? Give the preference to the rapid pitch and light tents!

Also, think about your luggage in advance! Attending a music festival is much different from simply going on a vacation. Such event is a type of “active” pastime, and thus, you should only take the most important things with you and try to reduce the volume of your luggage as much as possible!
