Prep Like a WMC Pro

There are less than 2 weeks left until Winter Music Conference and we’ve booked our room at the Avicii Hotel at SLS South Beach. And considering the 5 day takeover will feature programming by Ibiza super-club Ushuaia, we started hydrating last week in preparation.

But since this is only our second time to WMC, we’ve had a hard time putting together our packing list. So we asked our own music festival veterans for their travel essentials for WMC and put together our must-fly list:

  • Mophie – this small piece of hardware has upped our Instagram game tenfold
  • Comfortable shoes – we suggest Nike dunks or Converse
  • A hoodie – sun goes down, hoodie goes on
  • Hands free bag – we’re talking fanny packs, book bags, whatever works
  • Deodorant (this was on almost everyone’s list)
  • An emergency kit (hand sanitizer, toilet paper, pain killers, etc)
  • Head gear – for the ladies we recommend a flower crown, for the men a baseball cap

One more piece of advice – given by one of our music festival veterans – which we couldn’t help but pass along: party hard while you’re there, but be prepared to take a day or two after the festival to recover. We hear the SLS Hotel Pool is pretty great for a little post-festival R&R and that’s exactly where you’ll find us.
