We’ve created a survival guide for what you should and should not bring to the festival. Along with some helpful tips to enhance your experience.

Recommended Festival Items

You absolutely will need your RFID wristband and your phone for Boots and Hearts! The wristband is what allows you to access different areas of the campground and purchase food.

We highly recommend a backpack to keep your valuables and items with you at all times.

Make sure to bring both summer gear and rain gear. This includes hats, sunscreen, sunglasses, and rain jackets. Boots and Heart is rain or shine, so be prepared for both. Don’t forget the slip and slide for outdoor fun!

Bring a refillable water bottle and stay hydrated. (Cannot be metal)

Bring some personal items, including
  • First aid kit
  • Toilet paper
  • Bug spray
  • Wet wipes
  • Towels
  • Portable phone charger

If you plan on spending the weekend at this festival, you better be prepared and stocked up with these items.

Depending on what campsite you have purchased, bring your own tent.

Bring something to sleep on so you don’t ruin your back for the weekend! Whether it’s an air mattress, cot, or sleeping bag!

Anything is better than nothing! DON’T FORGET a pillow and blankets!

Bring essential cooking equipment including, cookware, utensils, camp stove, propane, and lots of food!
