Here we go again for another fulled filled festival season! By now, you’re probably scanning the line-ups for your favorite music festivals to strategize how to see all of your favorite acts throughout the course of a weekend. But, don’t get too carried away! Remember there are things you need to take with you to survive a festival.
Below are some of my MUST HAVE items as I galavant, sweat (I like to think of it as glow…) and stay organized as I conduct my interviews during festival season, from Life Is Beautiful in Vegas to BottleRock Napa to Coachella and beyond!
From booze (which you all are enjoying as I conduct my interviews) and accessories to the perfect outfit – this is the essentials list to make your festival that little bit more comfortable and bearable – because there’s so much more to surviving a festival than just putting up a tent and having a good time…right? Right.
The lovely people at Exposure USA, Herschel, Teeki, DT PR, ChicExecs, WalletBuckle , Salty Mermaid, Arrojo, Jose Cuervo and Green Goo by Sierra Sage hooked your girl, All Access Music writer, Nicole DeRosa up with a round up of the top festival essentials that Nicole is currently coveting and that she thinks you need to pack!
1. ARROJO’S ReFinish Dry Shampoo
Most music festivals last two to three days, and between the concerts, activities, parties, and mustering as much sleep as possible, the last thing you’ll want to do is worry about washing and blow-drying your hair. ARROJO’s ReFINISH dry shampoo cleans hair without water by absorbing excess oils. Creates texture and volume while protecting hair from damage caused by daily cleansing. Link to purchase here .
2. Jose Cuervo Ready To Drink Margaritas
Now it’s easy to enjoy the great taste of a top-quality margarita anywhere, anytime whether its in your tent, around a bonfire or at a friends backyard pool party in Palm Springs! This drink provides a deliciously convenient cocktail option with premium ingredients for any spring or summer festival occasion. Flavors include: Sparkling Paloma, Classic Lime and Strawberry Lime Margarita. Available in 4 pack cans. Link to purchase here .
3. Herschel Supply Co. Dawson Daybreak Backpack
If you’re heading to Coachella, a backpack is the chicest way to carry all of your essentials. Herschel Supply Co. has recently released the Dawn Collection, a line of bags and apparel made with vibrant straw tapestry, premium leather, polished brass hardware, and custom cotton finishes.

4. Special Edition Rolling Stones Jose Cuervo Especial
For the rockstar in the front row of every performance at every music festival– there is the Cuervo family’s blue agave recipe bottled at 81 proof. Pace yourself! The bottles are like a portal into rock ‘n’ roll history; your chance to party like The Stones and the gaggle of celebrities and fans in their wake. The bottle was created to celebrate the pivotal role Jose Cuervo® played in fueling The Rolling Stones™’ notorious 1972 North American tour, which was dubbed the ‘Tequila Sunrise Tour’. Price: $19.00 USD. Link to purchase here .
