Coachella weekend kicks off next weekend, then there's Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, and so on. Some festivals are one-day events, others let you unleash your inner hippie and camp out on the grounds (or if you're like me, book the nearest hotel). Either way, the show will go on-rain or shine-so you'll need to pack accordingly.

Start with this basic packing list, and even if you're not headed to any of the above, these items will prove useful for any spring and summer outing like picnics, beach days, hiking trips, beer garden runs...you name it. And if you are headed out to a fest this season, don't forget to check the official website all the dos and don'ts. Have fun!
