What to pack for a Music Festival!


Each year, one of our own anticipates the trek to Manchester, Tennessee for a taste of great music, festival fashion, and people watching. Meet our guest blogger, Lori Cody, Buckle's Marketing Director. She's an expert when it comes to your Music Festival pack list - listen up, moms know best!

For the past three years, my daughters, their friends, and I have packed up for the 14-hour road trip to Bonnaroo. I will admit that my first few hours were pretty overwhelming, but once I got the lay of the land and "settled down", I had just as much fun as they did. I've learned a few tips along the way in terms of the trends, what necessities to pack, and a few extras you wouldn't think to bring unless you've been there before. Bonnaroo 2013 is just 55 days away! My kids and their friends talked me into buying a ticket again this year, but I'm not sure I can make the trip. However, Tom Petty is calling my name!


We've put together a few collections we think are great if you're planning to join in on the fun this year!
