The best festival packing list – so you will not forget anything!

We have put together for you the ultimate festival packing list – and best of all: you can print them out as a PDF and check off all points quite easily! That’s how you think about everything.

The festival season starts and hopefully you already have the tickets for your favorites. So that you can enjoy the music and the atmosphere properly, you should consider in advance a lot. What you should definitely take with you, we have listed here. And: Give up a suitcase, with a backpack you are better off!

Festival packing list

You should definitely have cash with you and if you do not always have it with you, even your cell phone (plus charging cable and power bank). And you should also think about that:


  • identity card
  • EC card
  • Electronic health card
  • Possibly. Driver’s license and vehicle registration
  • Festival tickets (and possibly lanyard)


  • Tent (do not forget enough herring)
  • hammer
  • padlock
  • Sleeping bag and mattress
  • pillow
  • ceiling

You can also pack an umbrella , which is often very impractical. With a rain jacket or a rain cape, you have your hands free to celebrate. Instead of a mattress is also good for an air mattress , then think of a bellows. Sometimes it is also worth taking a folding pavilion .
