Halve the stress and double the fun!
Now that we’re well into winter, it’s truly time to say goodbye to this summer’s music festival season. Here’s our round-up of the worst problems we faced this year, and how to solve them so that you’re ready to hit all the concerts in 2017.
1. DEHYDRATION AND HUNGER
There’s nothing worse than missing out on all the fun because you’re all partied out. Always carry a water bottle and some snacks to make sure you’re energised enough to keep partying through the night!
2. HEAT EXHAUSTION
Concerts can get hot, and we don’t mean the Ranveer Singh shirtless kind of hot – we mean the sticky, need a shower kind. We recommend wearing a floppy sun hat to shield your eyes and provide some much needed shade.
3. SWOLLEN FEET
Concerts were made for dancing all night! Remember to wear comfortable shoes like these to prevent aching feet, because no one wants to be that girl walking home barefoot with her heels in hand.
Don’t let the Mumbai monsoons rain on your parade. Be prepared for any kind of unpredictable weather by dressing in a versatile outfit that’s ready for rain or shine.
5. DEAD PHONES
Nothing sucks more than seeing your favorite band up-close and personal and realizing that you can’t take any photos because you’ve drained your phone’s battery. Make sure you’ve got enough juice on that selfie-machine with a portable phone charger.
6. LOOKING CUTE
We know the struggle of looking cute when you’re sweating under the hot sun with a million other excited fans – it’s probably the only thing worse than rush hour on the Mumbai locals. Put on a comfy, effortless music festival outfit to bluff the #WokeUpLikeThis look.
7. INSTA-WORTHY SELFIES
If you didn’t post any #flawless selfies from last night’s music festival, were you even there? Be photo-ready by using this 24-hour makeup protection primer so all your pics are insta-worthy.
8. FESTIVAL ESSENTIALS
Remember when your mom told you that you would get a headache from all that loud music but you didn’t listen? Be ready for any situation with our music festival essentials kit including these items:
- Hand sanitizer
- Mosquito repellant
- Tiny deo
- Band aids
- Hair tie
9. HEARING LOSS
We know you love hearing the bass blare through those speakers, but your eardrums may not. Save yourself from premature hearing loss with some great earplugs so you can still jam to your favorite artist’s music long after the concert.
Ah, the bane of every Indian teenager’s existence. How will you get mummy and papa to say yes? Do your research, plan your trip, and let them know all the details to show them just how prepared you are. But if all else fails, StyleCracker has some great goodies to help you power through the negotiation process. Here are our picks for your mom and dad.
