  • Combat festival funk with plenty of baby wipes, hand sanitizer, dry shampoo and scentless deodorant (it won't attract bugs)
  • Drop a pin win you park so you won't have to search for your car several days later
  • Use a wagon or wheel barrow to transport items from car to camp site if necessary
  • Bring a back-up charger or solar charger - yes your phone will die without it
  • Set up a meeting point with friends and use flags to keep your group from getting separated in the crowd
  • Freeze bottles of water and stick in the cooler - to double as ice packs
  • Strap a head lamp to a jug of water for an instant light at night
  • Hide some extra cash in your phone cash just in case
  • Keep phone, cash and ID on your person just in case or better yet bring along a lightweight shoulder bag or waist pack so you can always keep hands free
