Howdy! Now that the two weekends of Coachella have flown by, the spotlight is on Stagecoach. Stagecoach is this upcoming weekend, April 29th-May 1st, and is a festival filled with country music, beer-drinking, and crowds filled with cowgirl boots. The biggest struggle is knowing what to pack for these long weekend music festivals, but as always, The LA Girl has your back. After attending our fair share of events, we have now answered this question and know what the must-bring items are. Here is The LA Girl’s Stagecoach Packing List 2022 to help the last-minute packing process go smoothly.
For starters, cowgirl boots are absolutely a requirement when attending a country music festival, but they are also a current major fashion trend, so you can pull them off any day of the week. Buy a colored pair like pink or baby blue for a pop of color to go with your festival outfits.
Purse or Fanny Pack
This is a must! You will need a safe spot to put all of your other necessities, including your ID, phone, sunscreen, etc. A fanny pack can be secured to the front of you and is sure to keep your belongings safe. Check your music festival’s details because some venues now require you to use clear bags and fanny packs for safety reasons.
If you’ve been to a music festival before, you’ll know what we mean when we say sunglasses are KEY. Sunglasses will make the dirt flying everywhere and spending hours in the sun a little bit easier. Also, they are a great accessory for a cute festival fit!
Hair Clips or Hair Scrunchies
You will thank us later for this one! The sun will be beaming down on you, people all around you feeling hot and tired, and you will be so thankful for that scrunchie on your wrist. Having your hair out of your face will make you feel pumped and ready for the long day ahead of you. Buy a fun-colored hair accessory to match your trendy festival outfit!
Having a bandana is helpful to keep the dirt and wind out of your face or even pull your hair back. The desert weather is so unpredictable, so make sure you have one on hand just in case. It is also a stylish accessory so add it to your festival outfit to complete the look.
Hand Wipes or Hand Sanitizer
This may be the most important product out of all of them. Music festivals are known to have messy bathrooms and not many washing stations. Bringing hand wipes or sanitizer will keep you clean throughout the day, especially before eating. Your entire body might feel dirty from the combination of dirt, sunscreen, and sweat, but at least your hands will feel clean!
If you plan on using your phone to take photos and are known as the person whose phone always dies, definitely bring a portable charger! This will allow you to charge your phone completely and contact your friends if you lose them in the crowd.
Hydration Backpack or Reusable Water Bottle
Music festival weekends are always so much fun, but can also feel long and exhausting. The key is to stay hydrated especially if you are drinking cocktails or walking around a ton. Water will be your best friend during a festival weekend, and by bringing a hydration backpack or reusable water bottle, you will be able to use the fill-up stations and stay hydrated the entire event!
Please, please, please do not forget this essential product when packing for your next music festival. It will be such a long day with the sun beaming down on you. Sunscreen will help protect your skin from SPF and keep it moisturized. Sunny days are our favorite, but I am sure we all know how miserable the next day is after getting a major sunburn. Help prevent that from happening by packing sunscreen and carrying it with you in your fanny pack or purse.
We know everyone can relate to that feeling of needing chapstick so bad, but sadly you forgot it… So make sure to pack it this time! Chapstick with SPF in it will help protect your lips from UV rays and keep them moisturized all day long.
Hydration Powder Packets
Liquid IV Packets will be your best friend after a long day in the sun, walking around a venue, and possibly having a few too many cocktails throughout the day. (Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us) Bring a pack of hydration powder packets to ensure you are hydrated and ready for the next day of fun.
