We’ve been to WeFest a time or two, so we’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks to teach you how to music fest. Share your best tips in the comments below!

1.)   Set up your campsite before starting the festivities.

Trust us, you’ll thank yourself later.

Pro Tip: We’ve already got some theme ideas to decorate with for you right here.

2.)   Bring adequate food and beverages.

Munchies, WATER, fun drinks, you name it - you can never have enough. Sometimes it’s hard to find time to eat when you’re having that much fun but make sure to keep your body fueled.

3.)   Have proper “festival” attire.

This means cowboy hat and boots, American flag attire, flannels, short shorts, fanny packs, bucket hats, and sunglasses. Go all out - we’re not going to stop you!

4.)   Pack your shower bag.

Don’t forget the essentials: towel, flip-flops, shampoo/soap, and your other personal hygienic items. The showers are free, and the lines are long but after being in the hot sun all day and staying up all night, you will probably need one.

5.)   Don’t be afraid to show how much fun you’re having.

Dance like a maniac, sing like you’re on stage, cry happy tears, laugh out loud - don’t be afraid! When you’re having fun, others around you are sure to have fun too. And isn’t that the whole point of this thing?

6.)   Expect the unexpected.

You never know when something crazy could happen - a surprise in the campground (hint, hint), making a new friend, a change in the weather, the list is never ending. Embrace the experience and enjoy the journey - so many memories are made that you’ll talk about for years to come.
