1. Rent a Locker
Trust me when I say that you won't regret renting a locker. In addition to keeping your valuables safe, Sonic Bloom lockers offer not one, but TWO charging ports inside the lockers. Split the $20 cost in half when you rent a Sonic Bloom locker with your festie bestie. Lockers also make for a great meeting spot with your squad!
2. Pack Smarter, Not Harder

4. Prepare to Go Green
Caring for Mother Earth is extremely important, especially at a music festival where there's a large amount of potential trash. Help reduce your carbon footprint by following a few, but effective tips:
- Pack out what you pack in! Don't forget to bring extra garbage bags to use to separate out your trash and recyclables
- Remove excess packaging before you get to the venue. This will help eliminate more potential waste and also help lighten your load
- Carpool or use on of Sonic Bloom's shuttle busses
- Re-use your commemorative drink cup all weekend long
