What to Bring to Tomorrowland 2018 – A Party Animal’s Packing List

You’ve shelled out for a Tomorrowland ticket. You’ve got your friends excited for the festival. And you’ve booked your plane tickets. Now you just have to figure out what to bring to Tomorrowland in order to make this once-in-a-lifetime experience count!

Beyond a list of the essentials that you need to be comfortable at Tomorrowland (don’t forget those flip flops for the shower!), I’ll also show you how to save money on alcohol and take your festival experience to the next level. After 5+ years festivaling, here’s my ultimate packing list.

Basic packing list

Bare essentials – things you’ll survive on even if you forget everything else


Those that know me know that I swear by my fanny pack. It’s the best for dancing! It is also harder to steal from (unfortunately there are people like that out there), and works for both men and women.

This galactic design is great for raves:

And they’re also available with different designs (i.e. American flag!)

Note: You can buy many of these clothing items (except maybe shoes, socks and underwear) at the Tomorrowland merch store, so it’s not the end of the world if you don’t bring enough clothes 😉



Dreamville Camping packing list

A party animal’s packing list

Tomorrowland is expensive. And of course, you can’t bring your own alcohol into the festival. However, of course, for the delinquent raver, there are ways around this. In today’s world you can buy anything off of the internet, including… decoy flasks!

Bring a couple of these flasks, bring your own vodka into Tomorrowland, buy a soft drink for the price of a token, and spike up your drink. And you’ll have a great time without breaking the bank!

Recommended secret flasks:

Tipsy Tubes 8 Oz. Hidden Alcohol Flask.

GoPong Sport Bottle Sunscreen Flask 2 Pack, Includes Funnel and Liquor Bottle Pour Spout

Speakeasy Briefs, Men’s Stash Underwear with a Secret Front Pocket

Note: You are allowed to bring food & drink, including alcohol, into Dreamville (the camping area). They just need to be in plastic bottles, not glass.

Ultimate comfort packing list

For an elevated festival experience

Women’s Hooded Raincoat Waterproof Transparent

Don’t let the raincoat hide your outfit! Get a transparent poncho.

For an elevated Dreamville camping experience

Note: You can buy these supplies in Boom. Dreamville has shops and a grocery store, but they don’t sell alcohol.
