As of July 2014, I’ve been to four major music festivals in my life. I know this isn’t a ton, but I’ve already experienced my share of the heat, the rain, the walking, the sweating, and the dancing. I’m a schedule person—I like to know when to be where, and who I’m seeing. Festivals usually give out paper brochures or booklets that let you keep track of your weekend, but what if they get soggy and wet in the torrential downpour of Shaky Knees 2014? What if you keep your schedule in your phone and the phone dies?
I present to you:
Music Festival Schedule Temporary Tattoos!
This mockup was made with an abbreviated schedule from Bonnaroo 2014, and yes, I did actually make these.
I would love to keep my schedule in a place immune to the elements, and resistant to fumbling around in my bag. Let’s say you could buy temporary tattoo sheets with all the bands, times, and locations already in rows, and then cut them out to assemble your ideal day.
Simply cut out your top picks, lay them on your arm in order (probably the most complicated part), and hold a wet washcloth on for thirty seconds. This is easy to do in your tent, or in the car on the way to the festival. Want to do the whole festival in one go? Stick ’em on your knees, on your other arm, on a friend (but don’t lose the friend).
Peel off the paper backing, and there you have it: a fool proof way to make sure you never miss another show.
What do you think? Would you wear them?
Update: Here’s what they might look like if we did make them for, say, Bonnaroo:
