Summer is now officially in full swing and that means one thing: Summer festivals and concerts! Last year I was able to go to Lollapalooza and I have to say it was one of the highlights of my summer! After going to Lolla I realized that there are a few essential items that are must haves at a summer concert! Whether you’re heading to Gov Ball this weekend, Lolla, Panorama or a local outside concert later this summer, I have all the concert essentials for you! You can shop the pieces directly below, and let me know what other things you always have with you! xo
Choosing a summer dress as one of your festival looks is an easy go-to! It is light and airy which will keep you cool during the hot day! I suggest choosing a fun and unique pattern so your friends can spot you in the crowd!
I know that fanny packs are all the rage right now, but I’d rather be practical! A backpack can hold so much more than a fanny pack and also it’s more durable! A fun summer print like this one is an easy choice for any festival!
Sunscreen is a must have! You are going to be outside for 12+ hours which means you need to protect your skin! You don’t want to be messing with a killer burn while your favorite band is on stage. Try to choose one that is SPF 50 or up!
Portable Phone Charger
Let’s be honest most of us are on our phones all day trying to record our favorite artists and by the time the sun falls our phones are on 1%! Your phone dying at a concert is the worst, especially if you’re split up from friends! This portable charger is one of my favorites because it is also a compact mirror!
Flash tattoos are a fun and simple way to dress up any festival look! They’re so easy to put on and finish off that festival look you’re going for! Also they come in bulk so you can share with your friends!
When it comes to standing all day, sneakers is my #1 pick. I wore boots to Lolla last year and my feet killed me! Sneakers are comfy, protect your toes, and can add a bit of “cool girl” to any look!

Let’s face it, it’s not fun walking around all day with the sun in our eyes so make sure to wear sunnies! Since it’s summer I like to opt for colors other than black and tortoise shell! Adding a fun pair of sunglasses can top off your perfect summer festival look!

Hats are the perfect accessory for a summer concert. They provide just enough shade to protect your face from the sun and they also give you a cool vibe. These two hats are my absolute fav and can go with any summer look!
GREY HAT | BLACK HAT
Sometimes flash tats aren’t enough and you want to accessorize with some of your favorite jewelry! I’m obsessed with jewelry so I would love to show some of mine off at a festival. I love big and chunky pieces that create a statement – I usually pair my favorite necklace and bracelets!
NECKLACE | CUFF
A music festival is the perfect time to test out a little neck scarf; you already know that I’m obsessed with them right now! They are stylish and can also protect your neck from sun damage. Choose one with a fun print!
Your shorts or skirt aren’t complete without a belt! Double buckle belts are one of my favs right now!
It isn’t unknown that I have a slight obsession with denim! Adding a denim vest to your unfinished outfit can take your look from 0 to 100 real quick. This vest will for sure spice up your outfit!
I know that I have a graphic tee collection and I’m sure that many of you do too! Choose a tee with a lot of colors – it is summer after all! A graphic tee gives you a comfy but stylish look!
Like the rest of the world I’m obsessed with bodysuits! They are so easy to style and wear! A bodysuit is a festival must-have because you won’t be adjusting it or fussing with it all day! It gives you that casual but classy look that you’re going for!
Shorts are more comfortable than jeans and a skirt when you’re moving around all day. I usually like pairing my favorite shorts with a graphic tee!
But, if shorts aren’t your thing opt for a skirt! They’re comfortable, airy and aren’t fussy during a long day at your fav festival! Pairing a simple skirt with a body suit gives you a polished festival look!
Always bring an empty water bottle with you! Chances are the festival is going to have water stations all around and it’ll be easier to refill your reusable bottle instead of getting a plastic cup every time! Always remember to stay hydrated!
