As EDC Las Vegas quickly approaches, we thought it would be helpful to put together a camping checklist to ensure you don’t end up leaving any necessities behind! First, check out the Camp EDC lineup they have in store for us. From motivational speakers and yoga to hooping classes, they have it all!

Camp EDC

Set to return to its home at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in just a few days, EDC Las Vegas has completely sold out of camping options as well as GA 3-day tickets. It’s projected to be quite a fantastic time! Now let’s get to packing. 

Camping Supplies

  • Sleeping bag – Coleman Sleeping Bag
  • Extra blankets
  • Blankets to sit on
  • Pillows
  • Air mattress (if you pack this also include pump or extra batteries for the pump, a patch kit for repairs, and sheets to cover it with)
  • Head lamps
  • Lantern
  • Extra toilet paper
  • Bath towels, at least one per person and an extra
  • Chairs
  • Coolers (it’s a good idea to pack a large for drinks and to use as a table and a smaller one for food
  • Febreeze for the tent
  • Lysol spray for the tent
  • Cleaning spray (Windex, etc.)
  • Jugs of water
  • Stereo or music player (also include extra batteries, CD’s or whatever you need for this)
  • Jumper cables
  • Tent locks
  • Hand warmers, hot hands
  • Flag  (to mark your campsite so you can find it easily)
  • Optional items like a fold out table (regulation beer pong size or otherwise),
  • A rug or tarp for the ground outside your tent/rv
  • Shade Awning-Small shade tents, large umbrellas, and Sunbrellas can be helpful to block out sun and rain during the shows if the festival allows them in the venue
  • Tapestries to hang up for decoration
  • Ash trays
  • Trash bags
  • Something to share

Food and Cooking Supplies

  • Camping stove
  • Extra gas canisters
  • Biodegradable dish soap
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Pots, pans, pot holders, spatulas, silverware, plates, napkins (a good rule of thumb is to figure out what kind of food you are bringing and make sure you have the necessary equipment to prepare it)
  • Cups
  • Straws
  • Ice (fit as much as you can into the coolers, making sure to keep half a bag in the plastic to use for drinks.  Ice will be sold on the festival grounds but it will be twice as expensive as in the real world so stock up as much as possible before entering)
  • Condiments (butter, ketchup, mustard, etc.
  • French press for coffee
  • Coffee or instant hot chocolate and cider, and don’t forget cream and sugar
  • Lots of bottled water, more than you think you will need.
  • Something to share

As far as food goes it’s up to you what to bring but try and pack things that are easy to snack on as well as meals that can be easily prepared in the dark or with limited supplies.  We always pack lots of chips, sandwiches, and granola bars because those seem to be the things we eat the most.

Toiletries and Personal Items

  • Travel shampoo/conditioner
  • Face wipes
  • Baby wipes (there are not always convenient showers available so if you refill jugs of water you can use these to brush your teeth and hair.  Baby wipes can help you stay clean throughout the day) *please do NOT dispose of these in porta potties!
  • Toothpaste / toothbrush / Mouthwash (this is convenient when you are getting ready to go to sleep and you’re too intoxicated to deal with toothbrushes and water)
  • First aid kit (Band-Aids, Neosporin, etc.)
  • Pain medicine
  • Pepto and antacids. Any medications you are taking (birth control, anti-anxiety pills, motion sickness meds, etc.)
