Top 10 Things To Bring To A Music Festival

Music festival season is upon us. Coachella has come and gone. Stagecoach is right around the corner along with Hard Summer, Life is Beautiful and Lollapalooza to name a few. For anyone planning on going to any of these festivals this year or in the future, these are the top 10 things to bring.

1. Bandana


This mainly applies to any festivals that take place in the desert or a dusty place. You have seen the photos everywhere. People with bandanas covering their noses and mouths. Well these accessories are quite practical. With all the dust and dirt in the air a bandana helps protect it from getting in your nose and mouth.

2. Closed toed shoes


There are so man people at these festivals. When the most widely liked artists come on the stage to perform everyone packs in next to each other like sardines. Your feet are bound to get stepped on, so wearing a pair of boots or sneakers helps protect your feet from getting too hurt when they get stepped on.

3. Fanny pack


Some people hate them. Some people love them. Some wear them around their waist. Some wear them over their bodies like purses. Whatever your opinion or style, these are super practical since purses can get annoying and you don't want to drop your phone.

4. Sunglasses


The sun is shining, dust is blowing, and well, its fashionable. Sunglasses are super practical for music festivals but also fashionable if you match them to your outfit.

5. Sunscreen


This item is a no brainer to pack. Getting a sunburn and having it for the rest of the festival would be miserable. So do yourself a favor and save yourself the pain and lather on sunscreen throughout the day.

6. Chapstick


So much dry air and singing. Your lips will feel so chapped after just 30 short minutes out in the blazing sunlight. Any type or flavor works, just protect your lips and coat them with your favorite chapstick.

7. Portable Charger


Several photos. Many many Snapchats. Instagram posts. You name it. You phone will die so quickly if you are using it all day during the festival. Portable chargers aren't expensive and will save your butt when your phone is at 1% and your favorite artist comes on the stage.

8. Hand sanitizer


Using port-a-potties, grabbing on to random things for stability, you never know when you will need to sanitize your hands. Where there are a lot of people there are a lot of germs and you do not want to get sick while at a long weekend music festival.

9. Advil


Whether you get a headache from the heat, dehydration, loud music or some other cause, Advil is always a necessity just incase a headache comes on or incase you hurt yourself and need a pain reliever so that you can keep dancing the night away.

10. Hat


Big hats are super important for sun protection. Especially when you are in the sun for multiple long days in a row. Not only are they super adorable with some outfits, they help protect your face from a nasty sunburn.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
