25 Apps for Music Festivals

From Hydration Reminder Apps to Tent-Locating Networks

— April 10, 2015 — Tech
While there are a variety of festival-specific apps that provide essential information throughout an event, there are also countless apps for music festivals that aren't necessarily branded as such.

From tent-locating apps that allow users to map the whereabouts of their tent to streamline the dark walk back through the campgrounds to an app that tracks water consumption and reminders users to stay hydrated, there are plenty of helpful smartphone applications to enhance the festival experience.

Additionally, festivalgoers will want to keep track of their friends, which is where location-sharing apps and social networking apps that connect users based on proximity, there are plenty of ways your smartphone can make navigating the crowds a breeze.

It's also probably a good idea to go prepared with a reliable weather app, an app to remind you to reapply sunscreen and of course, an app to track battery usage to ensure your smartphone doesn't die before the first set is finished.
