Thank you to Walmart+ for sponsoring today’s music festival packing list post! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I am so, so happy that festival season is back, in full force. I know many of you started following me in 2020 and didn’t get to see me enjoy live music that much these past couple of years, but music festivals are still my thing.
After years of going to festivals, I’ve learned one thing: you’ve gotta prepare accordingly. Food at the festival is pretty expensive, and the portions aren’t huge, so we like to rent a house/rentals with a kitchen to fuel up for a long day of fun and dancing in the sun.
Here’s my ultimate packing checklist if you’re headed to a music festival soon!
The Ultimate Music Festival Packing List with Walmart+
Ordering Snacks for a Music Festival with Walmart+
I’ve gotten so much use out of my Walmart+ membership over the past couple of years. One Walmart+ benefit that I use often? They offer free same-day delivery straight from my store, which is handy for last-minute snacks and water at festivals ($35 minimum. Restrictions apply). If you don’t feel like going to the grocery store, or if you forgot a key ingredient, you’re always covered! With a Walmart+ membership, you can get fresh, high quality groceries and more delivered as soon as same-day, at the low prices you love.
The snacks featured in today’s post can be delivered from your local Walmart store. If you’re ready to try out Walmart+ for yourself, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial. I’m also thrilled to report that Walmart is now offering six months of Spotify Premium for free for Walmart+ members — which is a $59 value!
The Ultimate Music Festival Packing List
If you’re headed to a music festival soon, here are some essentials you’ll need for the house. Note that you can’t bring outside food or beverage inside a festival, but it’s convenient to have them before and after the festival. Trust me; you’ll want to chug 7 million bottles of water after you get home!

Music Festival Clothing:
