Whether you’re a Pilgrimage pro or this is your first time to attend, we’ve put together a list of essential items to bring to the festival. And don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes as you will rack up some miles walking back and forth between stages.

Sunscreen – To enjoy the music, you’ll be in the sun for hours.Bring your sunscreen and be sure to reapply throughout the day so that on day 2 of the festival you won’t be dealing with a sunburn. You might also want to pack some aloe vera lotion because, if you are like us, we always miss a spot.

Water Bottle -Pilgrimage will allow you to bring an empty water bottle to fill at one of the many stations on the grounds. It saves you money by bringing an empty bottle and the environment by reusing your own bottle.

Phone Charger – We know you’ll want to document your time at the festival, so don’t forget your charger! You will find charging locations at the festival.

Change of Clothes – The weather is unpredictable. One year, it rained and the next it was over 90 degrees. Either way, it’s nice to be able to change your shirt after an unexpected rainfall or after a humid afternoon. An extra layer for those after dark performances would be nice to have on hand. If you forget, you can always visit the merchandise tent to purchase a festival shirt.

Earplugs – Are you the type to stand as close to the stage as possible?  Protect your hearing by bringing earplugs. You’ll still be able to hear the performance at a reasonable level.

Don’t have tickets yet? There are still a few available for purchase online here.
