All Summerfest pro-tips
Here are all the best festival tips to get the most out of Summerfest:
Handle the crowd:
Never lose your group
Pick an app locator, so all group members share their location, and this way you will always know where your people are in case you lose them.
Or you can choose a meeting or a rallying point in case you lose your friends.
So if lost, you can go there and message them “Am at the rally point” without having to explain which alley, close to which store, in front of which brand, etc…
And better to message than to call because depending on where they are, even if they pick up they would not hear a thing of what you say. So pick a rallying point.
If you have kids
Put an identification wristband on your kids.
First, when you enter the festival, identification wristbands are available, so the parents can write down an emergency number and contact information.
Second, spot the lost children’s area. If a child is lost, they will be brought to this dedicated area and checked in with a member of Summerfest Staff.
The South Gate is the best entry point
The South Gate is a good entry point, usually, most people enter via the other gates, therefore you have more room to get in, and the bathrooms are more available.
To see your favorite band up close, be there before the previous show
If you want to see your favorite band up-close, get there an hour before the previous artist.
For instance, for the 10 pm show, get to the 8 pm show at 7 pm.
It really has to be your favorite artist though because by doing so, you could miss other great artists while waiting until 10 pm.
Use the Skyglider to go across or up and down the festival
To avoid the crowd and go up or down the festival, using the Skyglider can be a great option.
Yes, you will have to spend $5 to do so, but here are all the advantages:
- You will be out of the chaos and noise for a bit
- You will finally be sitting, and your feet will say “thank you”
- You will avoid all possible jams
Don’t try to record the event: Live it up
Sure, you want to record the show with your phone, but in truth, those events are made to be lived and not recorded.
Trust us when we say that if you show part of the show to a friend with your phone, he or she will experience less than 10% of what you actually felt.
Therefore, don’t bother too much with your phone, you will miss the best parts.
Have the right footwear
Even though flips flops are amazing for hot weather, they are not really compatible with big crowds, asphalts, and bleachers.
Get comfy shoes or if you really are against shoes you could go with quality sandals like these for the ladies. And for guys, you could go with these male quality sandals.
Walking under the Skyglider equals free drinks… in your face…
Beware the walks under the Skyglider, people spill their drinks. So, unless you want free beer, avoid walking under it.
Be aware of the Summerfest bag policy
