4. Throw Blanket/ Tapestry

Finding a comfortable patch of grass, under a tree that provides the perfect amount of shade to rest on in between acts, is just simply untangible at most music festivals. Instead, patrons are usually forced to sit criss-cross on uncomfortable grounds that are flat and dusty from heavy foot traffic or trek all the way back to their campgrounds to get some rest. However, not all festivals provide campgrounds for festival goers, leaving them with the first option only. Make a comfortable resting spot almost anywhere, by setting down a thick tapestry or throw a blanket on the ground. Bring one with a groovy pattern to fit the festival aesthetic and double as a dope background for festival photo ops.  In addition, this cute prop can be used to shade your head and back from the piercing sun rays. We love versatility!

6. Disposable Camera

What more appropriate way to capture snapshots of the most memorable festival moments, than with a retro disposable camera. A sweet little trinket that has one simple purpose: capture memories authentically, should be used as a replacement for the camera on your phone. Digital cameras have given us a way to capture multiple shots of one photo until we are satisfied with at least one picture. However, this method has caused us to often stage photos of ourselves instead of taking random pictures and fully capturing the raw moment, as well as the emotions and story behind it. Digital cameras bring us back to a groovy state of simplicity. The lengthy development process of disposable camera photos dismiss instant gratification and allow us to relive the moment we captured with more appreciation.
