One of my favourite music festivals starts tomorrow: Rifflandia! With so many venues to visit, I always try and pack smart when it comes to my photography gear. While I want to be prepared for any shooting situation, I also don’t want to end up weighed down with gear while trying to explore everything that Rifflandia has to offer. At this point in my photography career I seem to have amassed a bag for just about every possible situation. This year my go-to for “city” festivals has been a leather rucksack with the insert from a camera back tucked inside. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to be practical and look stylish. Packing gear (along with anything else I might need like a wallet, some extra layers of clothes and an umbrella) always seems to feel a little bit like a game of Tetris…








Whether you’re rocking a backpack, fanny pack, or have everything tucked away in your pockets, what’s your top festival must-have to bring along? Leave me a comment below! (Mine other than camera gear is a snack, because you never know when you might get hangry and stuck in a giant food truck lineup!)
