Top 10 Camping Essentials For Elements Festival 2023
You don't want to roll up to a camping festival after having hurriedly packed the night before leaving. The last thing you want is to set your tent up, head into the festival grounds, and then return at 2AM only to realize you forgot a flashlight, contact solution, shower sandals, a hoodie, or any number of other essentials that can make your life a lot easier.
All you really have to do to avoid this fate is consult one of the countless camping checklists that ravers have made on Reddit or other social platforms, and then assemble what makes sense for you. Trust us, it's worth it. As The Elements Music & Arts Festival approaches (Aug. 11-14), we have put together a list of items that will put the cherry on top of your camping experience.
Check out iEDM's Top 10 Camping Essentials For Elements Festival 2023.
Even though Elements takes place in August, it can still get chilly in the early morning hours. The Neon Forest Hooded Blanket is super warm, while being easy to carry around. Plus, if you're going to brush your teeth at night, you don't have to worry about the blanket sliding down your back because your head will hold it in place. Functionality aside, the design is dope and fits with the festival's forest vibes.
Blankets serve many purposes at festivals. They can keep you extra warm at night, provide a clean space to sit on the ground, and even adorn your campsite for some added flair. The Pure Bliss Plush Hoodie is perfect for all of the above. It's also just mesmerizing to look at.
Tapestries have become staples of the camping festival experience, acting as canopy walls to provide privacy and relief from the sun. They also double as campsite decor, communicating your values. The Chill Sloth Tapestry will let everyone know that you're focused on taking it easy and having a good time. Keep the good vibes going with the Chill Sloth Hoodie.
Remember: you need three to four tapestries to create an enclosed canopy space. The Sleepy Hollow Tapestry conveys the spirit of wanderlust that will guide your time at Elements. Check out the Tapestry section of the website to find the final tapestries for the campsite.
Fanny packs are low-key the MVPs of festival season. They're easy to carry around, spacious enough to accommodate your goodies, and provide a measure of security against pickpockets. The PLUR Life Fanny Pack has the added benefit of a colorful design that sends good vibes to fellow ravers.
Drawstring bags are ideal for sunny days that involve a lot of walking. The lightness of the Sparkle Geometric Drawstring Bag will keep your back and shoulders cooler than a standard backpack, and the interior is still spacious enough to hold festival essentials.
If you need a little more space to, say, carry your Pure Bliss Plush Blanket, then you might need to level up to a standard backpack. The Spring Backpack is spacious and lightweight with a padded back for comfort. The cute design will no doubt generate a friendly compliment or two as you roam Elements.
The Easy Changes Backpack has a vivid design that's easy for friends to spot if you get lost in the crowd. It's also optimal for holding all of your festival knick-knacks and gear. You can even elevate the look with the Easy Changes Bandana.
The sun can be blistering during summer festivals and bucket hats are an easy way to protect your face from sunburn. The Enchanted Flora Bucket Hat shields your face, while also having a gorgeous design that will make you stand out in the crowd.
You have to pace yourself at festivals. Make sure to hydrate, stay out of the sun when possible, and rest your legs. The Foxadelic II Beach Throw will come in handy when you need to take a break from dancing. Just unfold the stylish throw, place in a relatively empty area, and rest on the comfy material. Since this fox is so cool, you might as well get the cozy Foxadelic II Pillow to go along with it.
