Music has touched millions of lives over time.

It holds the power of completely changing moods, reflect our deepest feelings towards an idea, and move us all in a single direction.

Whilst our ancestors had to travel great lengths in considerable uncertainty just to take part in celebrations, things have certainly evolved.

These days, at the distance of a screen, there is no excuse in ensuring we can find exactly what we want when we want it.

With a multitude of Music Festivals taking place often much closer than you may expect, what if there was a simply great way to know exactly what’s going on at any given moment?

Festivals This Weekend provides the perfect answer to that exact question!

By gathering all the great music events in one easy-to-browse map, all you need to do is join us and see what’s going on closest to you.

Organizing for a festival tour can be tricky. You need to come up with a perfect plan on how to get ready and make travel arrangements for the event. How are you getting there? Who is bringing the beer? Did Sarah remember to bring the audio cable? You know, the important stuff. 

Planning for one festival can be tricky enough but what if you’re going on a tour? Going to a few different festivals over the month can take up a fair bit of time. So it should take a fair bit of proper planning too.

Make Some Lists Of Who Is Coming and What They Will Bring.

If you haven’t been on a festival tour before than getting your group organised is probably the hardest thing on this list. It is however the most essential. Knowing who is coming and what gear they can bring is great, someone has more car space for some larger items while another vehicle can take all of the food and drink because the air conditioning might be better. You may even need to hire a car last minute if you’re not prepared well enough for your trip. Something like this can throw a proverbial stick in your wheel and may end up costing you a bit too much.

Having a rough draft of who is joining your little adventure can help you out a lot once you’re already on the road.  

Start Packing.

Once you have your list of friends ready and your list of what everyone is bringing, now comes the fun of packing.

I can hear your whispers of unenthusiastic anticipation from here.

Don’t be discouraged when it comes to packing, if you have created a well planned list than this part of your tour should be easy. Don’t forget your toothbrush. Check out our other article of Some Essentials For Festival Camping to make sure you have everything you need.

This step takes a very high priority on your wanderlust adventure. You don’t want to drive hours away just to realise that you have forgotten to take your cat to your Aunty’s house to be looked after. Plus you also left your phone charger on the bed, waiting to be packed. 

The Long Forgotten Double Check.

This one is pretty self explanatory. Always double check! Go back through your house and check everything. It’s one of those better safe than to be sorry moments.

Check Your Vehicles.

I can’t stress this enough. Checking your vehicle is a must before any major trip. Whether it’s needing a jump start after your first festival or getting a flat tyre on the way to the next event. Be sure to check your tyre pressure, fluids, cables, spare tyre and tools. Go and buy some jumper cables and a car jack if you don’t already have them handy.

Festival touring smile

Last but not least, make sure you pack a smile. Planning for a long tour can get a little bit tiring but once you have hit the road with your friends, you’re all set for your adventure. All of the hard stuff is out of the way as you and your friends watch the great scenery go by and let the anticipation build.

Always remember the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson – “Life is a journey, not a destination” so enjoy your travels as well as your festivals.
