    What Should I Have That I Might Not Think To Bring?

    1. EARPLUGS: Noice induced hearing loss is a serious issue at music festivals. Protect your hearing without compromising the music with a high fidelity pair. 
    2. PASHMINA: While it can be hot during the day, nights can cool down. Don't be caught unprepared and bring our favorite festival accessory!
    3. EXTERNAL BATTERY: Stay powered through 10+ hour days with a fully charged external battery and charging cables. Bonus points if you have a bag that can run a charging cable from the bag to your phone! 


    Don't get caught without anything to carry your stuff. 

    According to Electric Zoo's website,  you can bring a "small backpack or utility bag" but "no multi-pocket backpacks larger than 24’’ X 12’’ x 10” will be allowed into the venue. Unlike some festivals, backpacks do not need to be clear. 

    Hydration packs are allowed, as long as they are "completely empty upon entrance."

    The Lunchbox 

    Lunchbox is the world's first anti-theft hydration pack, designed by festival goers to protect the festival experience. Between its customizable designs, dedicated phone pouch, and rapid refill system, it's the last festival bag you'll ever need. 

    It was built, quite simply, to make your life easier at festivals.
