Get the Party Started – Why Hydration Packs are Good for Festivals

Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast, music festival fan or simple looking for the ultimate travel companion, hydration packs are a key component to keeping the momentum going. 

Enjoy more time doing what you love, without interruption, with hydration packs that offer just the right storage options and water capacity to fit your needs. 

Where do you begin when selecting the right hydration pack for a music festival? Start by assessing your specific needs. 

Hydration accessories should be on the top of every festival packing list – for shows of every size and season. When selecting the right pack style – ask yourself the following questions: Do you need ample room for storage? What kind of water capacity do you need? Will you be in a warmer climate that would require more water?

With the right festival hydration pack, you’ll spend less time waiting in line or running to water refill stations and more time enjoying your favourite bands. Save money and ditch disposable by skipping the purchase of costly water bottles while you enjoy the hands-free convenience of hydration packs tailored just for you.

Making A List & Checking It Twice  

Whether you are planning your next event with your festival friends or family, a little pre-party preparation can make your entire festival experience that much richer. Making a list of essential items well in advance of your event can make life easier for all! 

Depending on the length of your event, it’s always good to start with basic categories including hydration, food and cooking supplies, camping gear essentials – like tents, sleeping bags and pillows (oh, and extra blankets are a must!). 

How Much Water Do You Need?  

Prepare for every adventure with hydration tips tailored just for you. CamelBak’s Hydration Calculator offers an easy way to help you determine how much water you should drink. 

Based on factors including, age, height and weight, our hydration calculator assess the ideal amount of water you’ll need for hiking, skiing, running and biking.

Festival Musts – Most Important  

Whether you’re heading to the stage for an all-day festival, weekend event or a simple evening concert, always remember to check your venue’s allowed and prohibited item list to find out the maximum size and water capacity allowed to ensure a flawless festival experience. Checking the weather in advance is always helpful too.
