Top 5 Things You Should Always Bring to Warped Tour

Aside from bringing yourself and your ticket, there are a few other essential things that I recommend bringing to Warped Tour. These top 5 items will help your day at Warped go more smoothly!

1. Sunscreen

Surprisingly, this is something that a lot of people forget to bring (I’m guilty of leaving my sunscreen at home). At Warped Tour, you will be outside and in the sun all day. It is super important to apply sunscreen before you go and bring it with you to reapply throughout the day.  

2. Refillable water bottle

Hydration is vital. It’s easy to forget to drink water when you’re having fun but you can dehydrate if you don’t have enough H2O. We offer free water for all Warped Tour goers at designated hydration stations (like the one in the picture above). Just bring a refillable water bottle and drink up!

3. Spare cell phone battery pack 

While you’re busy taking pictures of your favorite bands, you might not check your cell phone battery. 

It’s better to be safe than sorry so I recommend bringing a portable battery charger. That way, if you’re phone dies, you can easily recharge it without an outlet.

4. Portable fan

This will be your life saver when the sun rises and the temperature spikes. Portable fans are light, small, and they will keep you cool all day! Ex: the picture above shows me enjoying my fan at Warped 2014. 

5. Hand sanitizer 

Everyone gets sweaty and dirty at Warped Tour, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about being clean. Hand sanitizer is an easy way to kill 99.9% of germs when you’re on the go!
