Here is my secret list shhhhhh... It's not cheap options that's for sure but I like being comfortable I guess, and it's stuff that will last for years of festival fun!

  1. A deep cell marine battery: Available at any auto parts store for about $120. You can then buy a cheap cigarette lighter hook up and intall it onto the battery. Then get yourself a decent 200watt power inverter, about $30. Then you can get some decent sounding speakers that plug in or a bluetooth one. Then you can charge your phone, power the speakers, or charge the bluetooth. With these speakers the battery will last 16 hours! This will also prevent you from ever messing with your car stereo or battery for any reason. Then you can just recharge it with this for next year.

  2. Blackstone's The Dash Portable Gas Grill and Griddle Combo is a great grill to cook every meal you would ever need.

  3. Not to get controversial but these and these have always done me right.

  4. Then this and this will leave you fealing like a million bucks or like someone in GL!

These work pretty great imo. Got them for when bassnectar came thru Chicago for the Spring Gathering and did not regret it.

1.) Sound quality: They have built in attenuators, so they don't just muffle the sound. Sound quality remains solid because they still allow certain frequencies to pass through to the ear canal, but they limit the volume by about + or- 5 to 10db. That didn't sound like a lot to me when I first got them, but damn it made a difference. Woke up the next morning with no ringing or hearing fatigue.
2.) Comfort! I put these guys in right before Rezz started her set, and by the time Lorin started playing I completely forgot I had them in. I literally had keep making sure they hadn't slipped out during the show because I couldn't feel them in my ears after I adjusted.
3.) Clear Coated: Not proud of it, but am definitely self conscious about showing my age and didn't wanna be judged by anyone for wearing ear plugs and looking old as shit in a crowd that's usually a couple years younger than me lol (I know it's irrational, leave me be. I'm old, god damnit.) But it's really honestly hard to tell someone has them in unless you're standing next to them or really looking hard. So there's that also.
4.) Storage: They come with a tiny clear case for storage that doesn't take up too much pocket space.

1.) Expensive: They cost 40$ far as ear plugs go that's more than most. So if you're like me and lose a lot of shit (especially when I'm at shows) be cautious getting them. Haven't lost them yet, but festival season is upon us, so we'll see if I can manage to keep track of 'em.

Definitely recommend them if you trust yourself not to lose them!

I've used both dubs and etymotics for earplugs and prefer etymotics because they are more comfortable.

I like decorating my campsite with tapestries they give your campsite a nice look :)

I also bring an inflatable lazy air bag to lounge in. Can be used at campsite or take it with you to the stages and can chill in it. I love mine and people always want to sit in it!

I bring a portable lantern and fan and this one combines the two so it's great you can see it here.

We all gotta eat so I bring a small propane gas grill. This one is affordable.

A portable charger is a must have.

For drinks, I like to pour it in my disco ball cup. It's a fun way to drink and I always get compliments on it!

u/thehauntedgod · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

I'm no physicist, but perhaps the principle of putting it in your car could perhaps apply to putting it in a trash bag and sealing it air tight. As long as you get your stuff in the bag while it's not humid it probably should be good and dry when you open it later in the night.

For while you're sleeping you should try to keep your tent well ventilated. Keep the rain fly open (if it's clear weather of course) and any extra "windows" open as well as a small camp fan to keep air moving. This will help move your breath moisture out of the tent. However the very very humid Michigan nights will keep everything quite moist until the sun rises. Alternatively, just stay awake until the sun rises then you don't have to worry about the humid nights :)

Following your formatting lol

⚡️🌲 hmmmm tape, scissors, maybe a marker (to mark what cup is yours). The bigger problem IMO is forgetting “obvious” stuff. My first year, I forgot a toothbrush. This year, my friend forgot a pillow. I have a google doc that I maintain throughout the year. As I remember stuff I should bring, I add it to the list. You’re a lot less likely to forget something if you’ve been compiling the list for months.

⚡️🌲 a super comfy bed setup. I have a queen sized air bed cot and I always bring lots of blankets and pillows. Invest in a comfortable camping chair, not just a $10 Walmart one. You don’t have to splurge, I got a $20 one this summer and it’s 1000% more cozy than the one I had before. Bring lots of string lights (solar ones are great and you don’t have to buy batteries) to put around the campsite so you aren’t fumbling in the dark. Don’t forget a lantern for the table. I like having a camping rug/mat for under the canopy so the campsite isn’t muddy/dirty. Also, this is a game changer.

⚡️🌲 Not a solar charger but this is the battery pack I have. Fully charged, it has lasted me throughout every festival I’ve taken it to.

⚡️🌲 2017 I arrived at 9 pm on Wednesday, this year I arrived at noon. I think I had an hour wait this year and about half an hour last year. They’re pretty good at getting you in quickly. I’d say just arrive at the most convenient time for you.

u/zebbielm12 · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

I have this one that I really like. It’s a bit heavier than the one you listed, but it’s very sturdy. Fits an eno doublenest perfectly.

Best Choice Products Portable 10' Hammock Stand W/Cup Holder Accessory Tray and Carrying Case

u/treerabbit · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I have this one and it's pretty nice-- sturdy but "portable" (not like quick pop-up or lightweight, but it means you can put it in your car to/from EF a lot more easily than some of the other ones)

also the cupholder is pretty clutch

u/SpartansATTACK · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

I bought this one. Easy to set up, it's designed for bar hammocks, but it fits an ENO DoubleNest perfectly fine. Comes with a cupholder too which is always nice.

u/Jefe25 · 10 pointsr/ElectricForest

So I will start with the list of things I already have saved from surfing this sub


These are great to put over your tent to keep the light and heat out in the morning so you dont wake up in a sauna at 7am

And finally, I will never attend another festival again without this stuff, it is a foaming body wash that does not require water. We use it at my work all the time for bed baths and whatnot, so I thought I would try it for a festival and it works quite well. It doesnt get you as clean as a normal shower but this and baby wipes can keep you feeling fresh the whole weekend (just dont use it on hair)

u/Irishprisoner7 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I’m looking to get some earplugs and heard etymotics are pretty good. Now my question is what’s the difference between this one ($25) Vs this one ($20)

Upon reading it seems like the $20 ones have inserts that stick out whereas the $25 are more like regular earbuds. Anyone have any advice on which to get? I will probably wear a bandana so I don’t want the plugs getting caught or pulled out

u/jMathews547 · 5 pointsr/ElectricForest

That's the shower tent I have. It's super sturdy and can hold a 5 gallon bag no problem. The bladder that comes with this tent sucks. Intex solar bags are about $7 each on Amazon and much higher quality so we ordered 8 of them so we have 40 gallons of usable hot water, not only for showering, but also for washing dishes and whatnot. There is nothing like having the freedom to shower at a camping festival.

u/ErinWisneski · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

We have this one and it is amazing!

and get a collapsible bucket to put the one end in.


But honestly last year I saw a girl taking a shower using a small watering can. That actually seemed even easier than my shower set up.

u/brebearr · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I used this one last year :) it lasted the whole weekend! It's pretty big but it has so much power it was worth it! Just remember to charge the portable battery pack beforehand haha

u/Cmaclsu · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

If you want to be the star of your campsite bring this amazing blow up couch.

People will try to steal it. I buy a lot of festival items and this is the one thing that has gotten the most attention. Great way to meet new friends as well.

u/TripAndFly · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

something like this

paired with this

and you're set for like 30 bucks

or you could just bring a black 5 gal bucket, fill it up in the morning and let it sit in the sun to warm up and just dunk a washcloth in there to wipe down and use wet wipes on the naughty bits. that would cost you like 4 dollars.

or, you could skip the tent part all together and just plop that bag on the roof of your car and spray yourself down in your underwear/swimsuit or naked if that's your thing...

edit: never tried the shower trailers, heard they aren't too bad though.

u/hTACO · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I had a nice pair, ended up losing them one night. Earplugs are surprisingly easy to lose, especially if you're like me and have to take them out to talk to people.
I buy these (standard size) now -
They're cheap, work well, and if I lose them it's no big deal. I'll also buy a pair to give to a friend if it's their first club show or festival.

u/shy_party · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

I went with

LiveMus!c HearSafe Ear Plugs - High Fidelity Earplugs for Musician, Concert, Drummer, Percussion, DJ & Clubbing - Reusable, Comfortable & Silicone Triple Flange - Protection from Loud Sounds, Noise-Cancelling, Lifetime Guarantee (Standard Size)

I lost them on the last day but they were great

u/ssswerve · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest

I started getting into using a pocket ashtray at Shambhala when they were giving them out ans saw lots of others actually using the damn things. Theyre pretty small and padded so you barely feel them. Just dump out them out when youre near a trashcan and youre all set. The ones I have kinda look like this.

But yea ive also seen people use those plastic pill bottles but it seems like those would sit in your pocket funny.

u/Ace-of-Spades88 · 6 pointsr/ElectricForest

Tip: Bring earplugs for getting rest at the end of the night/morning. We Foresters can be a rowdy bunch.

Trick: A couple car batteries and a power inverter works wonders for charging small electronics throughout the weekend.

Tip: make note of the cleaning schedule for the porta-johns near your campsite. (Hint: early morning seems like prime time.) Nothing like getting an early morning shit out of the way in a freshly cleaned john. Also, they wont have hot-boxed in the sun yet.

Trick: I bought one of these electric shower heads last year and brought a 5-gal bucket for water. Thing worked like a charm! It's less than $50 and rechargeable. Could easily split the cost among your group. Everyone in my camp loved it.

u/ToasterP · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

EL wire is exactly what you need. It's cheap and comes in a number of colors and is battery powered.

If you wear a camel back string it through there. (That's what I do) but hats or shirts are also popular. It's very bendy so you can make it for what ever works for you.

Hope this helps.

u/rinzeefurippo · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

[Here is a really great deal on an Anker external battery!] (

Thanks Amazon Black Friday! This battery is a beast, 6.5 full charges for an iPhone 7, about 5 or 6 for a Samsung, and you can charge multiple devices at once.

u/AGoosey · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

If you have room in your car and room in your tent I highly recommend picking this up!

Coleman Airbed Cot - Queen

Tried at Scamp last month and it helped me get some of the best camping sleep ever.

u/ohmybrown · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest

these are hands down the best ear plugs I have ever owned and totally worth the money. Make it sound wayyyyy crisper and I will never go to a show without them.

Got the girlfriend this gem for lounging around at camp.

u/FlexPointe · 6 pointsr/ElectricForest

Hi! You're in for such an amazing time :) Last year I purchased a cheap solar powered battery/charger off amazon which I failed to test and didn't work...womp womp. This year I have this power bank and I highly recommend it: It can charge your phone 6-7 times.

Last year one of my crew got a glass handle of liquor in, but I think this was only because it was buried under beer. The website does say no liquor so I'd suggest trying to hide it. Curious if others have been able to get past security wit liquor as long as it's not in glass.

As far as what else to bring--you can never have too many wet wipes!!

u/Broglesby · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

I personally have never used either of these, but have had my eye on them since last year. I feel they would be perfect. (There are varieties of both also, shop around)

Campsite Flagpole

Handheld (collapsible) Flagpole

Edit: Formatting

u/98785258 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

Do it. I got this hammock stand from Amazon.

when i sleep at night I lay a sleeping bag down in my hammock and lay on top of it. then cover myself with a blanket. Then you can flop each side of your hammock over top of yourself like a cocoon. Slept in mine this weekend, it was better than any night of sleep in a tent I've ever gotten.

u/Subaudible91 · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest
  1. University Customs makes pretty much all of the flags you're seeing on the subreddit lately.

  2. Use something like this flag pole at your campsite.

  3. Totems are sorta vague in their limitations. I used a telescoping pole similar to this, and got past security with no issue. Once inside I extended it out further so it was far above the crowd.
u/jhams13 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

You'll definitely be roughing it in GA. Portapotties only and $10 a shower. My friends and I brought a portable camp shower this year and it helped tremendously

u/fisheyguy · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

Go to your local auto part store and purchase a used car battery for like 50$. Then buy a battery clip on cigarette lighter socket extension cord for 10$ and a Dual 110V AC outlets and Dual USB 3.1A 300w power inverter for 27$. Now you wont have to drain your car battery charging your phones and it can power other stuff like lights or a pump for your air mattress.

also you can get Portable Solar Car Battery Charger encase you need to charge the battery or use jumper cables.

u/gandalph91 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I have this one and it works like a charm!

u/SenorJoseDirte · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest

One of my best purchases ever. Limitless showers

Coleman 5-Gallon Solar Shower

u/sourgangbang · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

These are the best $13 I've ever spent.

u/trippy-vibes · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

this one has worked well for us. it's a pain to dry out, but for $9, it does the trick. it's easy to fill up, put on top of your car, and wash from there. I don't know about the tent set up though.

u/zNNS · 13 pointsr/ElectricForest

There are showers there. I think they cost $10 and they're usually not the warmest.

I don't think I've ever taken a shower at fest (gross I know). What a lot of people do is buy solar showers and use those. Yeah, they're not quite as thorough but they do the trick.

I'm basically married at this point so I have nobody to impress.

u/monstaface · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

Ive tried a couple different kinds of ear plugs, looking for something that wouldnt muffle the sound, just shrink the spectrum. So far I've been happy with Earasers


u/bereceja1 · 5 pointsr/ElectricForest

I purchased Earasers from the local Guitar Center. I had a fitment issue with my tiny earl canals and they do an exchange program. They are a little on the pricey side but at least you know you will get a pair that will fit!

Amazon (Earasers)

u/ssirish21 · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

They're a little pricey, but a solar shower always did me well. They're like $15-$20 at dicks or target. It's a black vinyl bag with a hose that you fill with water and leave in the sun. It's not a perfect replacement, but for rinsing off the grungy bits, it beats 10 bucks a day

u/fwump38 · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

This is what I just recently bought for forest and was recommended by several people here:

It's a telescoping flagpole with stand (you drive your car over it to keep it standing). It's for the campsite which I wasn't sure if that's what you were asking.

If you're looking for a flag pole for in the forest I think a telescoping lightbulb inserter for tall ceilings could easily be converted into something more portable.

u/iFUBAR · 10 pointsr/ElectricForest

Please don't bring your huge flags into the forest. Telescoping flag poles (like this one) are great for your campsite but leave them there.

u/gamefreak027 · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

Ok this has been discussed a few times already but it's reasonable.

I personally have this Anker Battery. It can charge a phone from dead to full about 6 times.

Since I share it with my girlfriend we usually go through it + have other people camped with us so we received an Anker Solar Charger for Christmas. It works slowly but gets the job done.

There are also locker rentals available inside the forest. In addition to a place to store things in the festival grounds (Things can be left overnight) They give you a little battery and a charger dongle. When it is dead you bring it back and they give you a new one all weekend. Locker rentals are $50.

The cheapest way however is to charge it in your car XD

u/omegamjolnir · 15 pointsr/ElectricForest

If I could only give one recommendation... If you don't have earplugs, buy a pair or two of these.

It will change your festival experience, guaranteed. There is nothing like being close enough to feel the music - but at a volume that's not pounding your ears to death. There will be more space in the sound to tell things apart, and you'll be less fatigued at the end of the night.

If you're experimenting with chemistry, it's a chance to pull them out here and there and cycle through hearing with a fresh set of ears. Or to place extra emphasis on your favorite song in a set.

u/plur_lizzard · 5 pointsr/ElectricForest

I'm thinking about getting some inflatable stuff for camp, specifically this:

Anyone ever used this or something similar? Worth my money?

u/ItsAccrualWorld6 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I ended up going with this one
But out of paranoia, I may end up buying another one too haha

u/TossedRightOut · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest

I have these which I'm a big fan of. Probably going to pick up another pair in case I somehow lose them somewhere. They definitely make a huge difference. Way less walking out of a venue or somewhere going "fuck I can't hear shit right now"

u/acousticrocks · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest

I believe they are using an extendable flag pole.
Here's an amazon link. You can find more by searching "Extendable Flag Pole"
Flagpole To Go 17-Foot Portable Flagpole

u/dancingspark · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

You could try using a power inverter in your car. It plugs into your cigarette lighter and will allow you to use your straightener, but only if the car is running. As long as your engine is running while you straighten, it won't drain your car battery.

u/less_than_nick · 18 pointsr/ElectricForest


These things are cheap af and are perfect little ash trays. They seal up too so you don't have to smell that stale cig stench. I bring em to every fest

u/TheMarginalized · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

Pocket Ashtray. My wife has been using one for years and swears by it. Cheap, compact, and it works.

u/spartan833 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I bought these on May 12 and got them yesterday, so about 2 weeks. ymmv

u/Nichpett_1 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I just bought a pair of these for these years forest.

u/ParrttyPatt · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

u/Jordan-5 · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest

Add this shower head for extra credit. I had the pocket bag already so now I'm just gonna put the one end into the bladder of water and boom I have an almost fully functioning shower.

Here's the tent I just got. Doesn't support the weight of the pocket bag but nether did my last one that claimed it did, and actually just collapsed in on itself

u/bingbing20 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

Battery powered shower head and a 2 dollar bucket from walmart for showers. We used it everyday last year and our neighbors even asked us if they could pay us to use it. We also bought a little shower tent for some privacy.

u/The_Real_DirtyDan · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

I got a $30 portable charger on Amazon, I've been able to get 4-5 full charges out of it for my HTC m10.

u/Cualer · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

I remember the first time I went to a festival, it was EDC Orlando 2014. I bought a pair of Etymotics but I forgot them at home the first day. Holy hell my ears were ringing all night. I made sure to keep them with me at all times after that.

u/PsychedelicVisions · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

I bought this one:

Cost $65 and then it was snapped in half when the little storm came and none of my neighbors stuff was staked down. Their sleeping tent and canopy tent wrapped around my entire car, it scratch and dented the fuck out of the car and broke my flag pole. They found this funny and didn't even help untangle all their shit from our shit. I'm still a little bitter in case you can't tell

As far as that flag pole I had it for 2 years, it works really really well, it stood up to all sorts of storms and high wind, was really well made as well. It goes under the tire of your car to keep the base of it in place. I think it held up well, it just couldn't withstand all of my neighbors possessions smashing in to it at a high velocity.
