Butter Get Packing For BottleRock 2022
This isn’t our first rodeo! We’ve done our share of packing for music festivals and would like to give you our top tips for an easy-to-love weekend. Mainly, what you should (and shouldn’t) be packing for all upcoming sipping & JaMming shenanigans. You have more important things to do as you prep for the weekend, so sip back and relax.
Below, we’ve rounded up a few “must-haves” for an epic, comfy, rockstar-worthy festival experience!
1. Beach Blanket or Yoga Mat
We know you’re going to be dancing ‘til you drop. Make sure to pack a bright yellow (easy to find!) beach blanket or yoga mat so you have a cushy place to land when it’s time for a ButterBreak in the shade. You’ll be glad to chill on a whim when the mood strikes!
2. Crossbody or Fanny Pack
News flash! All bags brought onto the festival grounds must be 12x12x6” or less…Forget dragging a big ol’ purse all over, keep your essentials in a super cute holographic crossbody like this one. OR Consider this adorable yellow fanny pack or trendy yellow crossbody. Security-friendly AND keeps you cute while cruising through the entry gates?! You’re VIP status already!
3. Reusable Water Bottle
Stay hydrated, BottleRockers and festie besties!! Here’s a helpful reminder to sip plenty of water between glasses of Butter.
Reusable water bottles (up to 1L) are invited to the party, and so are these foldable yellow water bottles! All bottles must be empty when you enter the gates, then fill ‘em up and sip ‘em down at the water stations found throughout BottleRock. Good for the planet? Check. Will keep you hydrated? Double-check!
4. Sunglasses and Hats
This BottleRock, throw some shade…the good kind!
Trends may come and go, but good sense never goes out of style. Don’t forget to pack a pair of sunglasses and a hat (or two) to provide a little shade from the dazzling California sun.
5. Face Wipes and Sunscreen
The cardinal sin of music festivals: slacking on skin protection!
Keep your bronze, ditch the burn. Add a mini sunscreen and a pack of refreshing face wipes to your list. Dancing is hard work and your skin might be craving a cleanse. Face wipes will come in handy for those between-show-touch-ups. Don’t forget to reapply the sunscreen!
*Aerosol sunscreen is not allowed inside BottleRock, so grab a smaller bottle of your favorite sunblock and throw it in your fanny pack for those midday rays.
6. Tame Your Mane
Keep your head bobbing and hair rocking. Pack a few headbands, hair clips, scarves or bandanas to tame your unruly mane and save time for more sipping and less straightening.
Rely on the help of your festival-ready hair accessories to tame your tresses when the dancing starts. Also, consider packing a mini container of dry shampoo powder to make sure your beautiful locks stay fresh no matter how much rocking happens.
7. Hand Sanitizer
This one probably goes without saying, but you’ll def want to remember a bottle of hand sanitizer. Soap can be hard to come by, and it’s never a bad thing to be extra cootie-free! More high-fives, please!
8. Portable Phone Charger
No one likes the “low battery” during a music festival–especially when you’re in the middle of the silent disco not knowing where your festie bestie is. Pack a portable phone charger to keep your phone alive and your crew connected. Back up plan: meet at the Butter Cab-ana!
Forgot to pack something for your BottleRockin’ weekend? No worries! There will be an onsite general store for all things fashion, festival and fun! They’ll have things like gum, lip balm, over-the-counter meds, etc…. Thanks for thinking of basically everything, BottleRock!
