    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! 

    PSA: CHECK THE BAG POLICY

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

    The Imagine website lists "large backpacks and multi-pocket backpacks over 24"x12"" as prohibited, though cinch packs are allowed. Large purses, bags, and backpacks over 12"x12" are not allowed. Unlike some festivals, there are no regulations around the backpack needing to be clear. 

    Imagine allows for "camelbak style bladders (must be empty)" and "reusable water bottles" as well as hydration packs and backpacks under 12"x12". 

      Looking for your perfect Imagine bag? 

    If you don't want to have to check the bag policy at every festival you go to, check out lunchbox! It's built to get through every security line, anywhere you go. 

    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.


    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: What are camping hours?
    A: For regular camping entry, the campgrounds are open from Friday (9/20) at 10am to Monday (9/23) at 2pm. If you purchased your ticket before July 15th you were automatically upgraded to an early arrival 4-day pass, and camping opens at 11am on Thursday (9/19). Early arrival passes are also available for purchase on Imagine's website. 

    Q: Does everyone in my car need their own camping pass?
    A: Yes! Every individual needs their own camping and festival admission pass. 

    Q: Is theft a problem at Imagine?
    A: Like at most festivals in the U.S. and around the world, theft is an increasing issue at Imagine. Most of the people are amazing, but a few bad eggs can quickly ruin your festival experience. Their website offers some tips to protect yourself and your valuables, but our suggestion would be to invest in an anti-theft hydration pack like lunchbox!
