We are just a few weeks away from the 3rd edition of TomorrowWorld. Once again, it will be held in the Chattahoochee Hills, outside of Atlanta, Georgia, September 25-27th. I’ve attended TomorrowWorld since it first arrived, and the festival has gotten bigger and better every year. Our group of 15 sets up camp in Dreamville, which is a non-stop party. You can opt to stay in a hotel, but those are further away from the action. So, as TomorrowWorld veterans, here are 20 necessities you should bring to ensure you have a problem free weekend while camping in Dreamville.
1. Baby/bath wipes
It gets hot and dirty at TomorrowWorld. Plus, if a restroom runs out of toilet paper – you’ll want these in your bag!
2. Trash Bags
Bring a box of them in case it rains. You can wrap your belongings in your tent with a garbage bag to ensure they won’t get soaked! They also can act as a poncho.
3. Clean socks
Because nobody likes dirty, smelly socks!
4. Hooded Sweatshirt
It got really cold at night while camping in Dreamville. Pack a light jacket or hooded sweatshirt to keep warm…TRUST.
Yes, after some uncertainty, you are now ALLOWED to bring these in. They are crucial in keeping your body well hydrated at your campsite and inside the festival.
We walked over 5 miles every day – at the LEAST. Bring one to keep track of just how much you walk. And you should start stretching your legs now!
7. Bug Repellant
Let’s be real: there are some nasty insects and spiders you will encounter. I was bitten twice on the shoulder by a spider. It was awful. Bring a few cans of bug spray to use on yourself and around your tent. And have a fly swatter handy to kill any bugs and spiders trying to crawl into your tent! No joke.
8. Large Tarp
A large tarp has many uses. You can pile your stuff on it and slide it all to your campsite on a tarp. You can also use it to cover your tent or camping area if it rains. It rained a little last year during the end of the festival, but it wasn’t too bad to make things muddy.
9. Passport/wallet Holder
It may not be the most comfortable thing, but having one of these around your neck will keep your cash, ID’s and credit cards at hand – and SAFE.
It gets really, really dark at night. So bring a headlamp so you can see and not carry around a bulky flashlight.
Bring a few fold-up or blow-up chairs so you can sit comfortably at your campsite. Just get the cheap ones and save your money for other things like alcohol.
You can bring in a specific amount of booze… bring some or have a friend bring some if you are flying.
It gets hot and humid in ATL, so be sure to slather on the sunblock!
A cooler will keep your booze and bottled water cool. Pack it up with ice and water before you arrive! And hopefully it has wheels too!
15. Frozen jugs of water
This will keep your cooler cold, and when it melts, you will have a fresh supply of water to drink!
16. Frozen jugs of juice
If you freeze your mixers, you can keep everything cold in your cooler!
If you are planning on getting it in Dreamville, be sure to wrap it up. You don’t want to take an STD back home with you.
18. Portable Phone Charger
It’s a good idea to invest in a good portable phone charger to TomorrowWorld. If you don’t want to spend money on one, you can also rent them at the festival.
19. Battery Powered Fan and Battery Powered Air Mattress Pump
You will want a battery powered fan to help keep your tent cool at night. You’ll also want to get a battery powered air mattress pump so you can keep your air mattress inflated. Be sure to bring extra batteries too!
20. Good Vibes
Be sure to celebrate in a fun and positive way at TomorrowWorld. We’ve all traveled hundreds or thousands of miles to be there. SO be a good neighbor to those around you.
There are many other things you will need to bring if you are camping – just be sure these are on your list! Tickets are still available to TomorrowWorld, but you need to secure yours before they sell out.
