How to Pack Light for a Festival in 2019: Outfit Inspiration + Packing List

13 min read
Attending festivals in Belgium from the age of 15, I’ve become an expert on how to pack light for a festival. For years, I tested outfits, camping gear and the best way to get through a multiple-day festival.
 
With Coachella weekend 2 coming up, a lot of you are packing for your festival weekend. If you’re based anywhere else in the world, you’re probably counting down the days to your first festival of the year. For you, I’ve put together a complete guide on how to pack light for a festival. I’m not only covering the practical stuff. We will also be diving into the best 2019 festival outfit trends.
 
Attending a festival is one of the few times in the year that anything goes. Pink hair and an undercut? Sure! Taking a nap amidst 50.000 partying people, aaaah we’ve all been there.
 
One of my dreams has always been to attend festivals all over the world. It doesn’t matter which festival you have a ticket for, whether it is Sziget in Budapest, Tomorrowland in Belgium or Coachella in California, packing light for a festival will make or break your festival experience!

 What to pack to a festival? Start with the basics

As a teenager, I would spend hours and hours working my way through the crowd to see my favorite artists. At an average festival, you stand and dance for 12h straight. Finding that last shred of energy to dance to Steve Aoki. It’s such a special environment and it takes a special kind of light packing to make the festival just perfect.

A festival is no good if you are anything but comfortable. The following basics are an absolute essential in every festival packing list.
