Pack like a pro: 9 essentials you really need for Lollapalooza
Read Full Story
Remaining hands-free during the festival is a must, and a backpack makes for some no-fuss dance moves.
Festivals can get hot and sweaty, but heavy perfumes are so not the answer. A rollerball fits in your bag, is easy to apply, and most importantly, won't overwhelm your fellow festival-goes.
Advil, hair spray, nail file -- if you need it, this tiny little kit has it. Throw one in your backpack and you'll be prepared for whatever beauty emergency comes your way.
Did you happen to catch the photos from the Governor's Ball festival earlier this summer in NYC? Trust us, bring some rain boots and you'll thank us later.
Chicago is known as the Windy City, and it might get a little chilly at night. Bring an all-purpose jean jacket to throw in your bag.
Dresses are kind of the perfect thing to wear to an outdoor festival. This one is light, breezy, bohemian, and especially easy to pack.
Gotta have a cool pair of shades, and these have an old-school vibe that feel very Chicago to us.
Okay, we know a thermal spring water mist sounds a little unnecessary, but trust us -- this guy is way more chic and refreshing than carrying around one of those little squirt bottles.
If it isn't raining, having an alternative closed-toe shoe is essential. Festivals get dirty and dusty, and a pair of cute espradrilles will keep your feet free of grime.
