9 Essential Tips for Surviving Music Festivals Party Proof Your Festivities with SWELL's Pre-Coachella Checklist
Brixton and Juxtapoz Magazine threw the Sight & Sound at the Yellow Jacket Social Club in Austin, Texas during SXSW. Enjoy the evidence and lessons we learned during the rockin Brixton bender.
1: Don’t Wear Sandals
As ideal as it sounds to wear flip flops in the hot desert sun, blackened feet or a sandal blowout can sabotage your style. Opt for some low-cut classic Vans with festival flair.
2: Don’t over-book your band schedule
See a couple artists to scratch off your the bucket list, but save time to discover up-and-comers on the smaller stages.
3: Bring Cheap Backup Shades
4. Bring A Bike.
Cruise past lines of cars and be hero by going on a beer run when everyone is too pickled to drive. Grab a beater bike off craigslist for $30 though, chances are it will get jacked.
6. Urban Camping
When every hotel is booked or overpriced, rent an camper or big van to crash at RV park
7. Get Graphic
Psychadellic Standout tee graphics are the cornerstone to guys festival style.
8. Tip a Street Performer
Its just good Karma, and you’ll need it more than that 3 bucks
9: Sleep When You’re Dead
Get your monies worth and don’t miss out on a single set, or you’ll have full FOMO remorse on the way home.
