Festivals are one of those things you need to do atleast once in your life. It’s even more fun when the festival is in another country.
Passport validityThis should be first on your checklist, you don’t want to be sentback at the airport because your passport has expired. Some airlines may require you to have atleast 6 months validatidy for your return trip.
Find a festival buddyThis should be someone you are really close with and like hanging out with, you’re going to be there for a week or more you don’t want to be stuck with a joy killer.
Plan aheadDo not leave this for the last minute as you might forget something. This includes checking the weather for the period that you will be at the festival, it willl help you pack accordingly. If you’ve been to a festival you know how overwhelming it can get, decide on which artist’s you want to see beforehand and those you would rather miss.
Cash on handFestivals get packed so brace yourself for all the long queues you are going to have stand in, make sure that you have enough cash on hand for food and drinks atm’ s are not so popular around such events.
Research lawsWe know that you’re there to have fun, however, doing a bit of research around drinking and smoking laws will do you good if you’re a drinker or smoker. Keep in mind that countries are governed differently so what is acceptable in your country might be against the law in another country. Better safe than sorry.
Explore the citySeeing that you’re in a foreign country make some time to do touristy stuff by sight seeing, eating their food and buying a few sovuvenirs.
Capture your momentsWhat’s a festival without taking lots of snaps, this will be great to look at when reminiscing about your trip.
