In the surreal universe of music festivals, it's easy to forget about this little concept called "reality." You forget about real adult obligations—bills, deadlines, watering your plants, sunburns. The festival grounds can be a wonderland, until of course you come back for day two with an epic sunburn that would make Doug from The Hangover proud.
Repeat after me: never forget to pack a good sunscreen.
While every festival has different rules and prohibited items lists, it's safe to assume that you should leave your aerosol sprays at home, and stick with a lotion or stick sunscreen.
Below are a few of my favorite go-to's for festival-approved sunscreens. But be prepared to share, because at least three people are going to have forgotten theirs, and will need to borrow yours ~giant, giant eye roll~
