The music festival survival season is just kicking off which means one thing: it’s about to be hot AF and you need essential gear to enjoy the full experience. So the question is what are the best hot weather essentials you need to have on deck to survive?
Don’t worry. We got you covered!
It’s no secret that climate change is to blame so you’d better enjoy this sh*t before it’s literally too hot to pull up anymore! Heat exhaustion is a real thing and once you mixed crowds and an endless vacuum of reggie smoke, you are going to need more than just water.
Hot weather essentials are needed to survive music festivals
Here are 8 carefully curated hot weather essentials and gear for your next music festival that will keep you cooler. Enjoy the summer music festival season and stay safe!
Topping our music festival survival gear guide is the hodded sports head towel.
This hooded sports head towel can be used anywhere. Not only will you look like Doctor Strange in the middle of the mosh pit but you’ll have full hooded coverage which is necessary when the sun is beaming.
The breathable cotton perfectly insulates you from your neck to forehead and regulates your body temperature in the blazing heat.
There’s nothing worst than running out of batteries when you’re outside so the USB port for charging is clutch. This is a hot weather essential for any music festival this summer.
One of the biggest challenges at any festival is keeping your “water” cool. Do yourself a favor and invest in a Rambler by Yeti.
Yeah, you can find a more inexpensive option out there but trust us that you’ll be using this bottle for a long time. Probably for the rest of your music festival-going life!
The Chill Pal Cooling Towel might be the greatest invention you never knew you needed. You might need an ice bucket (or at least cool water) for this one but having this on deck during the sweltering heat is a must.
You can really get your Druski on and cop a whole cooling vest with 4 ice packs. Look at this as a fire extinguisher. You never know when you’re gonna need that sh*t! All you have to do is load it before you head out and you’ll be good for a few hours.
Two words: cooling wristbands. Not only does the cooling on the wrist keep you more insulated but you can use it to wipe away any sweat that may get in your eyes.
These wristbands are more than necessary hot weather essential. All you gotta do is throw some cool water on them when they dry out again and you’re good to go!
Bringing a UV umbrella to a festival might sound a little aggressive but just listen. The sun doesn’t play games and this is hot weather gear that will come in handy.
You never know what conditions you’ll be heading into but being prepared in case of any monsoons or direct sunlight will have you doing crazy things.
Now, this may take the right fit to really pull off otherwise you might end up looking like a construction worker. Who cares though when you’re head top is perfectly insulated?
