Because now that the summer heat has at last settled down for a while, the time has come for Belgium to host some of the most exciting music festivals in Europe. So if your life revolves around music, make sure you get hold of a festivals programme and have a look at the list below. goldenpages.be wouldn’t like you to forget anything essential at home!
Running out of money when you need it the most may become a real problem during a festival. That’s why you should make sure you have some cash with you at all times. Cash machines aren’t always easy to find and credit cards aren’t usually accepted in little food and drink stands.
Taking a camera will ensure the best moments of your festival experience will never get lost in time. Luckily, most cameras have now a video function as well so you can both capture the best instants of the festivals in a photo and record them in a video.
|3. Mobile phone
Whether you need to contact someone or someone needs to contact you, a mobile phone may always come in handy. Don’t forget to recharge the battery the night before!
Do you have a smartphone? Then don’t leave it at home! Most festivals have now their own app containing lots of information on pretty much everything going on around you in the festival. Don’t forget to download goldenpages.be app either. It will always help you find whatever you need whenever you need it.
|4. Identity card
Because you’ll be denied entry to the festival if you fail to show a piece of identification, don’t forget to double check if you’ve taken your identity card before leaving. What’s more, you may be required to present it at any time during the festival, so do keep an eye on it!
Despite nothing makes festivals more enjoyable than loud music, it’s important to high keep decibels within safe limits. Thanks to a pair of partyplugs both you and your ears will enjoy the festival to the full. These earplugs are especially designed for parties and festivals, where music is all but quiet.
Will it rain? If there’s one little detail you can never be sure enough about, this is it. Taking a raincoat is therefore a clever idea when going to a festival, even in summer. Whereas opening an umbrella in a festival can be quite tricky, putting on a raincoat couldn’t be any easier.
Tents keep you protected against insects and adverse weather conditions. Plus, they are a great way to get your privacy back at the end of the day. Most tents take now little space and are very easy to fold and set up, even if you’re not experienced.
|8. Entrance tickets
Few things are more frustrating than getting to the festival entrance and realising you’ve left your tickets at home. In order to prevent this from happening, put your tickets on your bag or wallet a couple of days before the festival and make sure they stay there.
You may not want to leave the crowd to go buy some water when you’re having fun with your friends. That’s why it’s a good idea to always take a small bottle of water in your bag and keep many big bottles within easy reach to fill it up as needed.
On the beach or in a festival, sunscreen remains the best product to protect your skin against sunburn. Severe sunburn can even interrupt the festival fun and force you to go back home, so applying some sunscreen all the day long should become no less than a daily festival ritual.
