Dreaming of the desert? Us too. Festival season is coming up and we’ve narrowed down our fanny pack picks to make sure you have everything you need to dance the night away.
First things first: let’s chat about what bag to bring. The key to a functional festival bag is to be hands-free. It’s tough to dance and explore the festival if you’re trying to hang on to your cute tote bag. We recommend a bag that you can put on and forget, such as a cross body dry stash bag or one of these amazing fanny packs from Body Glove!

Fanny Pack Essentials
Looking good and feeling good at festivals can be difficult to master, but luckily we’re here to help. Let’s start from top to bottom.
Between the hot days and windy nights, your cute, beachy waves might need to transform into a textured, high ponytail. Make sure you’re ready to go at a moment’s notice with hair ties and bobby pins on hand! One of our favourite things to pack is a traceless hair tie, so you have the option to let your hair back down without it becoming a creased mess.
Let’s talk skin care. Standing in the hot sun all day will require you to drink lots of water and go through multiple sunscreen applications. Security won’t allow liquid sunscreen into the festivals, so this solid sunscreen face stick from Sun Bum is the perfect solution! It gives you protection without making your skin feel greasy. Don’t forget about your lips! Their mango SPF 30 lip balm will keep your lips hydrated and smelling sweet all day long.
Our number one secret for a fantastic festival experience is to bring a pack of all-purpose wet wipes. From sticky hands to dust feet, you are going to want to be prepared for anything. Keeping clean will keep you comfortable, and your friends will love you for having these on hand!
Complete your outfit with a pair of UV shades from Pilgrim! Sleek and stylish, these sunglasses protect up to UV 400, making them the perfect festival companion. Last but not least, add a bright and beautiful flower crown. If you’ve been wanting to try this trend, now’s your chance!
