Only one more week until my first festival of the season takes place and so the Ultimate Packing and Planning commences. With (a tiny bit of pride) I present: The Ultimate Guide To Packing Your Festival Bag. Do you see anything you love and absolutely need in your festival bag?

1. Labello Fruity Shine Cherry lip gloss
This lip gloss is my loyal friend on a daily basis, but it is my ultimate savior at festivals. Why? Because it does not only keep your lips soft, healthy, and sun-protected, it also gives them a nice gloss with a subtle shade of red. This cherry lip gloss is the ideal alternative to wearing lipstick at festivals.
Spending time at a festival means spending most of your day outside, where you are exposed to the sun. That is why I always bring a mini sunscreen in my bag, to be able to re-apply it throughout the day and keep those nasty sunburns away. My favorite is the sun milk from Kruidvat. My skin is a remarkable easy target of sunburns and 50 SPF sun milk keeps me and my skin safe.
Do I need to say more? Sunglasses are essential at festivals. They look fabulous and they protect your eyes from the mighty sun. This heart-shaped pair from Urban Outfitters will be the finishing touch to your festival outfit.
Band-aids always come in handy, but especially when you are walking around a festival terrain all day! Blisters are annoying, so make sure you have a couple of band-aids in your bag to keep them from ruining your day.
I take my iPhone everywhere I go – also to festivals. Safely hidden in my bag, I only take it out in case of emergencies, such as snapping a picture of the stage or texting my family where we are meeting up for some kebab.
Tickets! They might be the most important item in your festival bag, since you need them to gain access to the festival every day. To keep them safe from pick pockets, I always store them in a tiny and secret pocket inside of my bag. You would have to be a super-trained expert in stealing to rob me off my tickets!
10. The Ultimate Bag
A couple of seasons back, I found the most perfect festival bag at H&M. It is black, so it matches with all of my outfits, it has a secure zipper on the front of the bag (pick-pockets, I dare you!) and it has pockets on the inside that can be zipped close (for keeping your essentials safe!).
Nine essential items. One small bag. I am ready for the festival season!
