What To Pack For Bonnaroo Music Festival

Who’s going to Bonnaroo this weekend?? It always pains me a bit to not be there… this festival is near and dear to my heart. It’s the first one I ever went to, and it opened my eyes to the wonderful, magical world of music festivals. While we won’t be attending this year, that doesn’t stop me from thinking about what I would pack if I was there! Here’s what would be in my bag – what would you bring?

Above: Festival Swit Cami, Dolphin Hem Cutoff, Flower Chainmail & Coin Collar, Chevron Fringe Pendant, Mascara Sunglasses, Printed Wire Tie, Hard Bangle Set, Toulouse Sandal.

  1. I’ll be there! I love the second and third looks here…I wish I had those items to take with me! Instead I just have a bunch of boring tank tops and shorts! Oh well…maybe next year!! :)

  2. I especially love look 3.

    My essentials included a canteen, a wide-brimmed hat, a bandanna and a watch.

    It’s very hot, sunny and dusty at Bonnaroo and the clothes I brought in 2011 smelled like sunscreen and dust well after the festival was over. Maybe my washing machine sucks majorly (#collegelyfe) but I would caution anyone who loves their clothes to only pack items they don’t mind beating up a bit.

  3. I can’t be there this weekend but I will be at Lollapalooza! I’m already starting to plan out outfits (already includes several Free People items, I just can’t help it!). I’m still trying to think of what shoes to wear though. I went in 2010 when I was 16 and I remember almost breaking down into tears on the way back because my feet hurt so bad. What are your comfiest sandals that would last 3 days of major rocking out?

  4. do not wear open toed shoes unless you do not plan on being close to your favorite band. I wore sandals to lollapalooza this year (in Santiago, not Chicago) and almost lost a toenail – I made it out with half. if you don’t want to be preoccupied by making sure your feet don’t get stepped on, then boots/converse/vans are the way to go.
