Lovers and Friends Fest! Las Vegas
I had a great time at the Lovers and Friends Festival in Las Vegas, so I wanted to share my experience with everyone. If you're interested in a video version, please check that out on Youtube :)
This was my first time attending an all day music festival, and I definitely wanted to be prepared for the Vegas heat, so first I'll share what I packed for the festival.
- clear backpack - This was a must as festivals as well as many other events only allow clear bags or super small clutches. I definitely needed something of a pretty good size to carry all of my other options.
- gatorade powder - This was a major key in staying hydrated in the 100 degree Vegas weather. Some people use the Liquid IV packets, but some form of electrolytes are definitely a must.
- collapsible water bottles - I chose these because I wanted to have more room on my way to and from the festival when all of my other items were in my backpack. I reserved a locker, so some of the less essential things (listed below) were left there which made room for the full water bottle.
- high-fidelity ear plugs - I ended up not using these as it wasn't super loud, but I'll hang on to them for future use.
- sunscreen - Sunscreen on my face is a daily thing for me, but full body sunscreen (with re-application) is a must for being in the sun all day (yes, even for those of us with melanated skin). There are many options but I typically purchase SPF 50+ sunscreens that are both water and sweat resistant.
- hat - I wore a basic black baseball cap
- umbrella - This helps to provide shade when away from the shaded areas.
- first aid supplies - I definitely made use of my anti-chafing gel (The girls with thick thighs know what I'm talking about) as well as my bandaids to prevent blisters. They do have a medical tent, so not much is needed.
- sandals - I brought these in case I wanted to air out my feet. I ended up not using them
- small towel - to sit on...nobody wants to stand for 12 hours
- portable charger - to keep your phone from dying
- mini fan - self explanatory for 100 degree weather
