Your LouFest Survival Guide

Posted By on Fri, Aug 26, 2011 at 10:03 AM

BE PREPARED, GIRLS AND BOYS!
  • Be prepared, girls and boys!

It's time to get your gear in order for LouFest, so we asked RFT Music's Facebook friends to share what they think everyone should bring to Central Field to make the weekend perfect.

Jennifer M.: Well, it's St. Louis - so you can't just pick ONE thing (that or it's a toss up) and that's all thanks to the "wait 5 minutes for a change" attitude of St. Louis weather, particularly in the summer.

Matt K.: YOUR EARS, SO YOU CAN HEAR THE MUSIC, BECAUSE IT'S A MUSIC FESTIVAL, ROFLSAURUSREX Kevin K.: Hearing ability.

Stephanie T., Megan D.: sunscreen.

Eric W.: Designated driver.

Tiffany E.: Friends who love to party!

Bo J.: Your ticket, duh.

Stephen M.: A copy of Deerhoof's Reveille and a confused look when Bradford Cox refuses to sign it (this is an assumption.)

Ryan M.: You gotta bring a freed mind! 'Cause like George Clinton said...FREE YO' MIND AND YO' ASS WILL FOLLOW!!!!

Ryan W.: pants

Jeff N.: A positive, ready to party, let's-not-be-meatheads-and-start-fights attitude. Michael T.: Emergen-C. If you put it into a PBR or Coors Light (or any low-cost beer) it tastes like a Blue Moon and it might just be the jolt of nutrients/energy that you need to make it through the day. This was one of the greatest tour/festival secrets we ever stumbled on.

Ryan M.: DUH...you need a unicorn that pees gatorade (the blue kind).

Abby G.: Water. It's important to stay hydrated! (Indeed. LouFest allows everyone to bring one sealed bottle of water, up to one litre, or an empty refillable bottle. Like last year, there will be a free water bottle refill station.)

Brandon R.: My cell phone, so I can post on the new RFT Music Facebook page, thanking them for the free concert tickets.

Zac E.: Beerbelly stealth beer system, but don't tell security, m'kay.

Daanish Q.: Sinister Dane t-shirt

Tim S.: Gold Bond. Any male vetern festival goer knows that. Rookies take note. Lifesaver!
