Festival Park Event Essentials to Pack in Your Day-Bag

Festival Park, in the east end of the city of Madison, hosts over 100 performers and hundreds of thousands of people each year. Here are some festival packing essentials, suggested by a few locals:

1. Tissues

Don’t forget the Kleenex.

2. Clothes and Clothes Closet

Always pack an extra pair of underwear, t-shirt, socks, shorts, underwear, and other outfits that are needed in the heat of festival day and night. A smaller wardrobe may be more sensible.

3. Earplugs

Turn your brain off, and rest. Earplugs might be useful.

4. Camera

Use it!

5. Disposable Blender or Stick Pack

Never know when you need to make a smoothie!

6. Cash

You’re going to need cash.

7. Credit Card

Although it’s impossible to carry enough money, having a credit card is easier.

8. Passport

Not only will you need your passport to fly home, but you might have to change flights.

9. Needle-Free Bottles

Be safe and pack a few tubes of lip gloss, mini chapsticks and new glossies and a mini-jug of lotion for emergencies.

10. Sunscreen

What’s up with sunscreen not being available everywhere? Wear your sunscreen and stay hydrated.

11. Advil or Ibuprofen

Whether you’re attending one festival or 50, avoid big headaches and sores from the sun by packing an extra bottle of Advil or Ibuprofen.

12. A Water Bottle

Take it easy with your water consumption during the day. Buy a refillable water bottle, and fill it up throughout the day.

13. Mini-Grill

Pack a lighter BBQ or grill into your day-bag, if of course you have a small enough one that you’ll actually use.

14. A Bottle of Lotion

Sunburns and sunscreen can cause blisters and chafing. Stick a small bottle of lotion in your day-bag.

15. Socks

Even if you’re not camping, you’re going to be in the grass for a long time. Socks are a must.

16. Folding Chair

Not only are you going to be sitting for hours, but remember that people have to sit too. These days options include the likes of a much more convenient seat walking stick which saves tonnes of space.

17. Small Snack Box

You won’t go hungry with a few granola bars and trail mix.

18. A Water Bottle

This is probably obvious, but it’s great to have a water bottle to keep with you.

19. A Back Pack

Your day-bag is never going to be big enough.

20. Whatever You Need

You’ll probably pack too much, but whatever you need to make your day-bag as small as possible is a good idea.

Festival Days

Travelling from the Big Muddy (Madison) to the Cedar River Center is a long walk, especially when you’re lugging your day-bag on your back. But when you’re packing your day-bag, don’t forget to have a water bottle, sunglasses, a small towel or a brush, clothes and towels and a few other essentials that are needed.

On the way to the festival, don’t forget to have your pass, tickets, wallet, credit card, cash, water, and whatever else you’ll need.

Whether you’re parking at Festival Park, or the nearest hotel, there’s no need to feel that you have to spend your time wondering where you’re going to stay, just pack your bag in your day-bag. There’s never a bad idea to have a water bottle or two.
