Elevated camping is just a hilarious concept to me. As if one person in a planning committee was like "I want to do everything identical to regular camping, but sleep 2 feet higher", and since they were a generally nice person, everyone else politely nodded their head.

Like I'm legitimately confused as to its merits over an air mattress in a regular tent. Feel like it just dramatically increases the probability of accidentally falling onto the ground during a groggy morning or drunk night.

That being said, I'm confident that whatever camping option you have, you're going to have a BLAST! Firefly is an awesome experience- great people, great music, and great vibes all around. In addition to what other people have suggested, I'd highly recommend a reusable water bottle to bring into the festival, as well as a handkerchief in case it's dry and dusty. Also a cheap camp shower works wonders if you don't want to wait on line for a shower!

USE SUNSCREEN. Wear a hat. Wear sunglasses, bring extras. Bring several pairs of comfortable shoes, flip flops or worn out shoes are going to be a bad time. Carry extra socks with you, amazing how refreshing it is to change your socks in the middle of the day.

Earplugs are a must, for loud music areas and for trying to sleep.

Bring a larger tent than you think you need. Room is nice. also bring a luggage lock - a small combo lock that can fit through your zippers and make it a bit more secure (but lock real valuables in your car.)

In addition to your tent, bring a 10x10 canopy like this to shade your tent or the area in front of your tent. It will keep the sun off of your skin while chilling, and if used over your tent can cool it off inside.

Get some solar powered lights to put in or around your camp. Find a way to put the solar charger outside, outside lights can help you find your tent, light the interior on under the canopy I suggested, and makes it look pretty cool.

If you are worried about juicing your phone, clip one of these to your backpack as you walk around all day. A good one can keep your phone topped off pretty well. Get one per phone, they aren't that heavy. Beats having to visit charging stations.

I posted elsewhere about using a camping stove, these are really good - make sure to get some JetFuel for each one. Bring old pots and pans, a kettle to make hot water, and butter cooking spray is the bomb to keep things fairly non-stick. To make coffee, use a simple pour over device with cone shaped paper filters. Bring reusable cups for each person.

Bring bags for garbage. Try to reduce the amount of plastic you throw away.

If you don't want to pay for showers, bring one of these camp showers. I also bring another 5-gallon container to refill your bag and for washing dishes etc, and a folding wagon to carry it in because I'm too old to struggle.

Bring rain boots just in case. Last year's mud fest turned into a shoe graveyard and I ruined several shoes that I brought.

Also Walmart /camping stores have solar powered shower bags for real cheap (like under $20) bring a big jug of water and dedicate that jug solely to shower water, its not the cleanest feeling (if you don't have a shower tent you can wear a bathing suit and wash up outside of your car) but i certainly hope youre not going to a camping festival thinking you're going to be clean anyway, its definitely better than waiting in a long line and paying for a shower

*sorry about the links I'm on mobile

I think I may be in the minority on this, but the shower bag never really did it for me. I brought one like this and it was really lack luster. Im 6 feet tall and after hanging the bag, the nozzle was below my waist. That would have been fine, if not for the fact that the shower head just barely dripped, Placing the bag on the roof of the car got the water nice and hot within an hour or two. But if you want to get clean I might go with one of these with some kind of wash basin, or a kiddie pool and a bucket work really well for a quick cleanup

u/dancethedistrict · 2 pointsr/FireflyFestival

The best thing I brought to FF was definitely saline rinse spray. Nerdy, yes, but I was able to get most of the dust out and didn't have to figure out where to find safe water. This goes into my "never forget to pack" list along with the bandana from now on.

u/eastwest1929 · 2 pointsr/FireflyFestival

These are the earplugs i use for sleeping at festivals, i have found them to be good because they mold to your ear, just make sure you follow the instructions when inserting so you actually create a seal.

Intex Classic Downy Airbed Set with 2 Pillows and Double Quick Hand Pump, Queen

EPAuto 12V DC Portable Air Compressor Pump, Digital Tire Inflator

The compressor will make inflation fast and easy. Also good to keep one in your car for flats.

Electrolyte tablets. This stuff is pretty cheap; if you have other junk to get off Amazon it'll cost you under 6 bucks atm. And since it's tablets, you can bring them into the festival (you can't bring pedialyte or gatorade in - that's just at your site - or buy the powders).

u/fartlekbritches · 3 pointsr/FireflyFestival

I've tried Dubs and Downbeats. I like the fit and sound of Downbeats much better, plus they don't stick out of your ears, and really aren't even visible.

Odoland Portable LED Camping Lantern with Ceiling Fan - Hurricane Emergency Survival Kit

I used something like this in my tent last year, I had two in my tent with two people. It wasn’t the best but sure helped me sleep through the night.

u/cheezypooofz · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

Buy one of these. Fill it up stick it on the roof of your car and you should be good to go. We bought two and filled them once and it was enough for 4 guys to make it through the festival washing every morning.

u/hagermah · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

Absolutely! We bring something along the lines of this:
Just have to fill it up with water, let it sit on your car in the sun and in a few minutes it warms up and you can use the spigot to hose yourself down. It was perfect last year

u/periodicBaCoN · 2 pointsr/FireflyFestival

I've had these for 3 years now and I love them. There's a string that connects them so I don't lose one and while they make me bit lose my hearing at concerts, they still allow me to have conversations with anyone around no problem. I also have somewhat tiny ear canals and yet they stay nice and snug for me.

Edit: I give up trying to make that link look pretty on my phone.

u/doMinationp · 11 pointsr/FireflyFestival

In the festival: Gold Bond powder for chafing/sunburns/itchiness, hi-fidelity earplugs (I use DownBeats bcecause they're more compact than others), Anker 10000mAh battery pack and a multi-USB charger cable so all your friends can get their charge on w/o having to stop at a charging station

Camping: Mio water enhancer for electrolytes + flavor, Anker 20,100 mAh battery pack

u/Jillmoney · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival
This is the one i got.. it looks like price went up by only by 20 dollars!! Make sure you bring an extension cord tho if you choose to buy this...its a little hard to get it through the door of the tent

u/kshucker · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

Tried looking it up on Amazon. This looks like what Jill mentioned. Intex Dura-Beam Series Raised Downy Airbed with Fiber-Tech Construction and Built-In Pump, Queen, Bed Height 22"

u/haroldgreengard · 3 pointsr/FireflyFestival

I use these from Etymotic and I really like them. I don't usually use ear plugs for festivals unless I'm right next to the speakers in front or something, but for regular concerts or house shows I do!

u/delawarekid · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

I have relied on these Hearos Earplugs for the past year and they are wonderful for dampening the volume but keeping the mid and high range detail.

You might have to buy a pair or three to find something that fits your ear/liking. Also buy some foam guys as backups, for sleeping and for the amigos.

u/MmmmBeer814 · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

I got these for Coachella this year. Those plus gold bond extra strength and I had no issues with chafing.

u/be_to_the_bop · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

Buy a shower tent and a portable shower, acquire something to stand on like SMALL wooden pallet so you're not standing on mud, bring a few 5 gallon jugs of water (empty or filled, you can fill it there) and you can shower right at your campsite. It won't be the best shower you've had but it'll do.

u/mgreco49 · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

Most capacity I’ve ever seen for the money. I have used this for 6 years

EC Technology 22400mAh Power Bank Ultra High Capacity External Battery 3 USB Output(5.5A) Powerbank Dual Input Port (4A) Portable Charger for iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Nexus and More, Black and Red

u/Flupox · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

I have 2 of these for me and my wife. Between both of us, that lasts us all week.

u/Quattro4442 · 3 pointsr/FireflyFestival

They look legit, but there are still ways to tell if it's water vs alcohol without opening the bottle.
