We've compiled everything you need to have the best festival experience under the stars.
Given that Excision's Lost Lands Music Festival is quickly approaching, it's time to start preparing for those of us who plan to camp at Legend Valley.
If it's your first time camping at a music festival, planning can get overwhelming (to say the least). The Dubstep FBI team has gone camping at some of the world's largest music festivals in the world including Tomorrowland, Coachella and EDC Las Vegas.
Combining our years of experience, we compiled a list of essentials that we know will give you the ultimate festival camping experience.
The list is separated into four categories:
Check out Dubstep FBI's Festival Camping List below and let us know what you think! We also compiled this list into a printable PDF which you can find here.
Tent (I mean, unless you live that YOLO life and don’t mind sleeping out in the open)
Canopy (If you don’t want to end up looking like a lobster or get rained on, you’ll need this)
Solar Shower (for those who refuse to wait in the shower lines)
Air pump (Make sure it has batteries - some festivals have air pumps available for a price)
Blankets and pillow
Extra blankets (believe me, it can go from 90 degrees during the day to 50 degrees at night)
Jumper cables (because no one wants to be stuck without them)
Multi-tool hatchet (We recommend this one)
Ice Ice Baby
Jugs of water
Car power inverter
COOKING SUPPLIES (for those of us who don't want to pay $17 for chicken and waffles)
Extra gas canisters
Pots and pans
Disposable plates (we all get too lazy to wash dishes)
Did we mention ice already?
Alcohol - no glass containers are allowed
TOILETRIES (for those of us who are not trying to live that wook lifestyle)
Shampoo/conditioner (you’re a true wook if you go four days without showering)
Fast-drying towel (we recommend this one)
Condoms (stay safe fam - we don't need any junior wooks running around)
Bobby pins and hair ties
NECKBRACE (did you really go to Lost Lands if you didn't break your neck?)
RaveRunner Hydration Pack (stay hydrated and secure your belongings)
Ear plugs (protecting those ears is paramount)
Electrolytes like Nuun (for the hangover)
ID/credit card/emergency cash
Copy of your vaccine card or negative COVID-19 test (IMPORTANT... don't bring the real thing, you might regretfully lose it)

So, there you have it. The best part about camping is that you can always walk back to your campsite, have a couple of drinks, take a power nap, then head back out. Don't forget to register your wristband and have fun!
