Best bags for festivals
During the summer, events such as festivals attract a lot of people. At festivals, music is playing and people are having fun, while new memories are created. When attending festivals, dressing accordingly for the event and the weather is necessary. However, the biggest question is: what to wear to a festival?
One of the most important features of a festival outfit is a bag – A festival outfit is never complete without a bag. Festival bags allow you to go hands-free and take in the shows, while keeping all the essentials in one safe place. The bag needs to be both functional and practical at the same time as being a part of the outfit.
What to look for in a bag for festivals
The most important thing to keep in mind when finding a music festival bag is the type of festival or venue.
During a one-day music festival, such as the Yam Carnival, a crossbody bag is a safe place to carry essential items, such as phone, wallet and keys. A crossbody bag is a practical accessory to bring about on a music festival, because it will give optimal movement throughout both day and night.
At festivals over several days, such as Glastonbury Festival, Isle of Wight Festival or Leeds Festival, a waterproof weekend bag or a box bag will give opportunity for keeping both clothing, toiletries and electronics dry and safe. The weekend bag can be carried over the shoulder or across the body with the detachable shoulder strap, or as a handbag with its carry handles.
An all-weather bag
The weather forecast should also be kept in mind, as it impacts what type of bag is needed. The best bag for music festivals is ideally one that is waterproof and lightweight, because it will be carried around all day, regardless of the weather. To keep electronics and other essentials safe and dry, it has to have compartments and pockets with zips as well.
