Tips of Staying Safe at a Music Festival


Music festivals can be a source of great fun, filled with friends, dancing, and amazing performances. To make sure that everyone has a good experience, there are some safety tips to make sure that your experience is as safe and enjoyable as possible.


Pack a bag with what you need


Being dehydrated or getting sunburned can spoil anyone’s fun. Make sure that you go through a checklist of items to put in your bag before you leave. Also read the festival’s rules to make sure that none of your items are confiscated when you arrive. A list of suggested items is:

  • Your ID
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Sunscreen (usually a lotion, many places don’t allow aerosol cans)
  • Any medication you make need
  • Band-aids
  • Sunglasses and/or a hat
  • Cash or a credit card (check to see if the venue is cash-only)
  • Portable phone charger
  • Earplugs


Know where your friends are


Make sure that you stay with your group. Festivals can get crowded, and it is easy to get separated from your friends. Find a map or easy-to find locations so you always know where in the venue you are. Ensuring that everyone’s phone is charged and meet-up points are established keeps everyone safe. Especially in large crowds or in the dark, you should always travel with a friend.


Take breaks throughout the day


Being overheated or dehydrated can not only spoil your fun, but it is also hazardous to your health. If your venue is outdoors, reapply sunscreen as necessary. Take breaks to cool off, drink water, and have a snack during the day, especially if you have been drinking alcohol. Also, don’t drink anything that was left alone or you are unsure of. If you aren’t sure if someone put something in your drink, just find another.


Music festivals are filled with people, art, and music. You can bond with new people over similar interests, and enjoy your time knowing that you and your friends have taken steps to make sure you are all safe.
