Daily Beat Staff

Festival season is in full swing. With all the first timers heading into the 2017 season, a festival guide is much needed. 10 essential tips to enjoy every second of it!

1. Drink Water

Drink H20. Not just slightly over room temp PBRs. Water is your friend. Double check with the festival that water will be provided. Many multi day festivals do not provide water. The recommendation is 1.5 Gallons per day/ per person. BPA free plastic only if you're trying to be legit.

2. Bring Enough To Share

Share with your friends or share with strangers. There is nothing worse than going to a festival and not making a single connection. First timers make sure they have enough for themselves, but veterans make sure they have enough for their friends to.
