Your Essential RAVE Shopping Guide

There are some essential items that you always need to bring to every rave or music festival. We’re here to help you gather these items so that you don’t have to worry about the little things and can just enjoy the music and the experience.

But first of all, if you’re not an Amazon Prime member yet, I suggest you get yourself at least the 30-day free trial so your items can get to you ASAP. Because if you need to return it (which returns are also free) you will have time to get another shipment in before it’s too late! Start your prime membership by clicking below

Hydration Essentials

Whether the festival is in summer or in winter, staying hydrated should be a top priority. But nothing’s worse than needing to get water in the middle of an awesome set. So make sure to get yourself hydration pack to quench your thirst! And check out the Electrolyte supplements to keep you hydrated too!


Sojourner Rave Hydration Pack Backpack – 2L Water Bladder – https://amzn.to/2LJCsyS
I recommend the Sojourner Hydration pack because they have really cool designs and multiple sizes of packs. The bigger ones include pockets to store other items.


HAISSKY Running Waist Belt with Water Bottle Holder – https://amzn.to/2XxM81P
If you don’t want to carry a backpack, you can also get a fanny pack that has a water bottle holder. The HAISSKY brand is the one that we personally use and it’s great when you don’t want something hanging on your body.


Hi Lyte Electrolyte Replacement Tablets for Rapid Rehydration
https://amzn.to/2LPosDE
Hi-Lyte is an all-natural, performance electrolyte supplement that provides the perfect balance of fast-acting electrolytes for rapid rehydration and recovery. It’s not going to replace the need for water, but you won’t get dehyrdated as easily.

Self Cooling

I do a lot of dancing no matter what the weather is like. So if you’re like me, make sure to bring yourself a hand fan, an electric fan, or a misting fan to keep you, and the others around you (all about PLUR), extra cool!

THE Best cooling option will, of course, be the Gay Rave and Circuit Almanac Nerdy Panda fan or the MOVE I’m Gay fan!!! Not biased or anything!! 😛 Support our site by purchasing one of our amazing fans!


Gazeled Battery Operated Clip on Fan – https://amzn.to/2LKPcFF
I will personally be sporting this battery powered clip-on fan. It’s actually the size of a football so it gives pretty good wind power. PLUS, you have the option of plugging it into an USB port/portable battery to make it last longer.

Anti-Theft

While at a music festival, or any type of public event, your sure to be surrounded by some of the most amazing PLUR people in the world! Unfortunately there are also people that prey on that, and take advantage of amazing events. There will always be pick-pocketers, so its best to use some form of anti-theft device on your phone, or even bring a “burner” phone. Fanny packs are great for storing you I.D., credit card, cash and gum. It’s a good idea to keep your ID/Cards separate from you phone, as phones tend to be the biggest target. 


BLACKRAPID Wander Bundle – Smartphone Safety Tether System – https://amzn.to/30nYdsg
Here’s a simple cell phone leash that works with most cell phones with a case. The loop fits through the opening for the charging port of the case and then you can have it tethered to your wrist, your belt loop, or your backpack.


Unlocked iPhone SE – https://amzn.to/2oD7j7m
Get an unlocked iPhone (or Android Phone) to use as a “burner” phone to take into the festivals. So even if it’s stolen, you will still have your real phone.

Eyewear

Its always a good idea to keep your eyes protected from the sun’s rays. Here are a few ideas for some cool shades. They are also great for hiding some of those crazy faces you might make while having too much fun! Want to enhance the visuals? Grab a pair with refraction lenses 

Vintage Mirrored Sunglasses One Piece Colored Glasses – https://amzn.to/2LFaJzs
Be the coolest kid in the crowd! These mirrored glasses are SICK!

Kaleidoscope Rave Rainbow Crystal Lenses Steampunk Goggles – https://amzn.to/2S47Xox
Give yourself a light show with these fun refraction glasses! When the lasers are going and the beats are just right, it’s an out of this world experience when you have these on.


PINFOX Shutter EL Wire Neon Rave Glasses – https://amzn.to/2LK5mPl
You’re sure to be the life of the party with these EL Wire neon glasses on. These are battery operated so you may need to bring extra batteries with you if you want them to last several nights.

Essentials

Make sure to stock up on these essentials for any outdoor event. Whether it’s protection for your skin or sanitizing hand wipes, you’ll want to add these items to your packing list for sure!

Coppertone SPORT Continuous Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 50 – https://amzn.to/2JAydTB
Don’t end up being a lobster! The sun will be strong and there won’t be much shade. So make sure you apply sunscreen at least 15 min prior to first exposure and then reapply every hour or so.

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm – https://amzn.to/2LFd2T8
Chapped lips are the worst! It’s going to be pretty dry in the area – and when you’re dancing a lot you’re bound to be dehydrated. So moisten those lips with a good lip balm like Burt’s Bees.

Night Light Glow in the Dark CONDOMS – https://amzn.to/2XAq9Hz
Put on your protection!! And to make sure it’s on right, get the Glow In the Dark ones! 😛
