Ready to rock until you drop?

The Labor Day holiday means another season of music festivals is coming. It’s time for music lovers in China to break out their festival gear and get ready for a blast. As usual, you can expect the cream of local artists along with a few international acts to deliver musical entertainment for days. But a good festival experience begins long before you watch that first musician take the stage. From planning and packing, to choosing a wardrobe style and actually being at the event, check out our 21 tips to make sure you have a rocking time.
五一假期意味着又到音乐节扎堆的季节。对于中国乐迷而言,此时正是拿出节日盛装、准备肆意狂欢的节奏。同往常一样,令人期待的是本地杰出艺人与几位国际大咖携手带来数日的音乐盛宴。但想要体验一次绝佳的音乐节之旅,在开场表演之前,你要做好许多准备。从计划、打包、到挑选服饰风格,再到亲临现场,检查自己是否做到了以下21条,只有做好充足准备才能嗨翻现场!

It’s best to go prepared
行前准备


1. After getting your ticket, study the festival schedule as soon as possible. Besides checking on the location, transportation arrangements and musicians to see, you can also plan your arrival time to avoid missing your favorite band even if you’re stuck in traffic or busy setting up tents.
音乐节门票到手后,尽早研究节目单。除了再次核查音乐节的场地、交通和出场乐队和歌手,你也可以提前规划到达时间,以免因为堵车、忙于搭帐篷等原因错过最喜欢的乐队表演。

2. The Internet is your friend here. Schedules and updates (sudden band cancellations and delays) may appear on the event website, so check often.
网络能够助你一臂之力。最新的节目安排,如乐队演出突然取消和延迟的通知可能会出现在活动网站上,需时时关注。

Take everything you need
需要携带的物品清单


You may not consider all these items to be necessary, but it’s better to be overprepared than underprepared. On to the checklist:
或许你觉得这些东西不一定都有用,但正所谓“有备无患”。以下是物品清单:


3. Lightweight towel: Music festivals can get messy. With a towel you can sit down for a rest anywhere, or dry yourself off if things get wet.
便携毛巾:音乐节的场面可能会乱作一团,随身携带毛巾,就可以随地自如的坐下来休息。如果东西弄湿了,还可以用来擦拭干净。

4. Cash: Most transactions will require cash. There may be ATMs, but expect long lines.
现金:大多时候买东西要用现金。可以到自动取款机取钱,不过估计要大排长龙。

5. Spray-on sunscreen: Spray is quicker than lotion and gives you better coverage.
防晒喷雾:同乳液相比,防晒喷雾使用更方便,防晒效果更佳。

6. Poncho: Lighter and easier to pack than an umbrella, but just as effective.
雨披:雨披比雨伞更加便携,且同样有效。

7. Others: phone charger, bug spray, tissues, earplugs and band-aids.
其它:手机充电器、杀虫喷雾、纸巾、耳机和创可贴。



Don’t forget to have a great time:
狂欢前的规划:


8. Plan out the details: Don’t expect to rely on your phone when contacting your friends inside – it’ll either be dead or without service. Also, remember that as the day progresses, the grounds will get more and more packed. So if you’re trying to be somewhere at a specific time, take walking time into consideration.
规划好细节。在场内联系朋友的时候,手机十分不靠谱——可能死机或无法接通。此外要谨记,随着演出的进行,现场的人会越来越多。如果你想准时抵达某个地点,需要提前考虑步行时间。

9. Avoid the hottest time of the day: If you can’t stand the heat, go later in the day.
避免一天中最热的时候出门:如果忍受不了高温,就晚一点出门吧。

10. Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner: With constant walking and standing, especially on a hot day, you’ll need all the energy you can get.
吃好一日三餐:除了走,就是站,尤其天气炎热时,你要尽可能补充能量。

11. Drink water constantly: Passing out is the opposite of fun. Keep yourself hydrated to avoid a medical emergency.
注意补充水分:如果昏厥的话,那就乐极生悲了,所以要多喝水,以免身体不适。

12. Go light on the booze: Yes, beer and live music are an excellent pair, but pace yourself. How annoyed will you be if you don’t even remember the best set of the day?
不要贪杯:诚然,啤酒与现场音乐是绝配,但要悠着点。如果喝断片儿,连当日最佳乐队的演出都记不住了,你还能淡定吗?

13. Live the moment: Weibo, WeChat and Instagram are hardwired into our lives. But concerts are always better when you’re absorbed in the experience, so let your social network wait. And let’s be honest: You’re never going to watch those phone videos again anyway.
活在当下:微博、微信和Instagram已经深深扎根于我们的生活之中。但如果你全身心投入到音乐节之中,便会经历一次更为美妙的旅程,所以暂时告别社交网络吧!老实说:到时你就会把那些手机视频抛到九霄云外去了。

14. Break your plan: Festivals are about adventure and discovery, so don’t treat your plan like a class schedule. If you’re walking past a band you don’t know, but like the sound, stop and listen. Just go with the flow.
随机应变:音乐节就是探索与冒险的过程,所以切勿按部就班。如果你经过一支不熟悉的乐队,但被他们的音乐所吸引,那就停下来欣赏吧。一切顺其自然。

Music festivals are about live music, but they’re also a runway of chic fashionista fans, sharing their love for music in style. If you’re wondering what to wear to the occasion, here are a few ideas:
尽管音乐节是实况音乐的天下,但同时也是时尚达人的秀场,他们用各自的服装风格来表达对于音乐的热爱。如果你还在为音乐穿什么而苦恼,不妨读读以下几条建议:

15. Dress in denim: Dress up your denim by pairing it with lace or floral to create a cute and flirty look. Or, to create a more grunge feel, throw on a graphic tee with a pair of old, ripped jeans.
牛仔Look:一条牛仔裤,搭配蕾丝或碎花,营造出可爱娇媚的风格。你也可以用印花T恤来搭配旧旧的破洞牛仔裤,打造出一种更加叛逆的摇滚风格。

16. Bohemian beauty: Bohemian style is a classic look for music festivals. The key is to accessorize and pay attention to detail. Put on a maxi dress or skirt for a carefree appearance and then accessorize your heart out.
波希米亚风:波希米亚风是音乐节的经典着装风格。其关键在于装饰与专注细节。穿上拖地长裙,打造悠然自得的风格,更可以装点你的心。

17. Tribal time: Bold colors and print will make you stand out in the crowd. Don’t be afraid to mix and match prints as well. Make sure to pair your tribal prints with a simple accessory to make the print stand out that much more.
民族风:大胆的色彩与印花会让你在人群中脱颖而出。不要为混搭印花图案而头疼。选择一个简单的配饰,会让你的民族风印花图案更加突出。

18. Backpack: Distributing the weight across your body instead of on one shoulder is crucial.
双肩包:与单肩包相比,双肩包可以分担肩膀的负重。

19. Straw hat: Block the sun from your eyes while looking totally bohemian chic.
草帽:在遮挡阳光的同时,还可以将波希米亚风进行到底。

20 Sunglasses: Shield your eyes from harsh UV rays and look cooler.
太阳镜:避免紫外线对眼睛的伤害,同时酷劲十足。

21. Comfortable shoes: Prepare two pairs if possible. If it rains, you’ll be glad you listened to us.
舒适的鞋子:尽可能准备两双鞋子。要是碰到下雨天,你就会为听我们的话而暗自窃喜了。
