2. An Extra Thick Fitness Mat by Body Glove
We know not all of our festival-goers are the jump-in-the-middle-of-a-crowd type; some of you prefer to sit and sway in the back, while letting the music flow through you.
Body Glove’s Extra Thick Fitness Mat is perfect for those laid-back, one-with-the-earth moments. And the best part? It comes with an easy-to-use carrying strap so you can get your groove on anywhere you’d like. Grab yours here!

9. The Seaview 180° Sand Free Oversized Beach Blanket by WildHorn Outfitters
I have to confess… we’re obsessed with this product. Whether it’s a music festival on the beach (I’m looking at you, Hangout Music Fest) or aboard the Sixthman Festival Cruises at sea, live shows on the shore leave little room for error… as long as you’re okay with possibly becoming ‘one’ with the sand.
Not anymore!
