The Festival Survival Kit

Hello Darlings, With the summer sunshine comes the festival season. With a long weekend, OVO and Veld behind us; August is officially known as the Sunday of summer. I know realizing a fact that summer is coming to an end is  a difficult fact to accept. So what’s a better way to enjoy the rest of your summer season, if not with an outdoor festival. Now you may not be a music expect and not know that festival are taking place. Well, no worries I’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of worldwide festival including Canada and US from Music Festival Junkies and plan your next adventure.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending Veld Music Festival at Downsview Park for the second time. I has a blast dancing the days away to DeadMau5, A$ap Rocky and Steve Aoki. Despite mother nature not being very kind to us with terrible thunder storms, resulting in an early cancellation of the event on the second day.

Deciding on which festival to attend might be a challenge but planning for one is most crucial. Which brings me to the most important part of festivals, and that is being prepared for just about anything. With a number one rule of safety is protecting your skin from harmful rays with sunscreen. To make sure that any cuts or scrapes and blisters are properly healing be sure to have have them covered with waterproof bandages and you can continue on dancing. Also consider bringing a light jacket and an umbrella, along with a water bottle and never forget your charger. It’s always better to be prepared!
