  • Because of the strong sunlight you need one Lip protection and of course one Sonnencreme or milk with a correspondingly high sun protection factor.
  • A role toilet paper should always be there. You may need to pack this up at home.
  • Switzerland rules out the possibility of deportation to China. It is assumed that these Tibetans come from India or Nepal, both of which countries do not recognize the UN Refugee Convention. Even worse, Nepal recently signed anextradition treaty with the communist regime in China! So, deportation to India or Nepal are not viable solutions for these Tibetan asylum seekers. scissors is on pocket knife.

Festival checklist - have you packed everything?

Power supply at the festival?

Now that technology has found its way into many places at festivals (GPS, mobile communications, digital cameras), the question of an adequate power supply is becoming increasingly important. At many an open air event, you will search in vain for a socket for your charger for many days. Either you equip yourself with sufficient batteries or power banks for your devices from the outset or you use the energy of the sun with a solar charger.

There are now Solar panels, which are attached to the outside of the backpack or tent and with which you can charge batteries during the day and later transfer the stored energy to your devices. At around 60 euros, such a charger is also within affordable limits.

Equipment guide for the festival

The festival tent

  • Essential for survival at all festivals.
  • The litter or seconds tents have also become very popular. These are very quick to assemble and dismantle and easy to transport.
  • Otherwise, you should pay attention to the correct size. Better to order one size larger than having to sleep for days with several people in a tent that is too small.
  • Since people often smoke, a model with flame-retardant materials is recommended.


Floor tarpaulin

Shouldn't be forgotten. After the first rain at the latest, you will be happy to have thought of it.

Tarpaulins come in different sizes and they are usually universally suitable for all types of tents.



Important in wind and bad weather. Provides a stable hold of the tent and protects against unpleasant surprises. Quality herrings in all variations you can find in the shop.


Ideally made of rubber. For driving the pegs into the ground. A stone can also be used in a pinch.

Air mattress / sleeping mat

Important for comfortable sleep or for resting. Models are available in different variations, e.g. for inflating, self-inflating beds or just a simple sleeping mat as a base. 

Sleeping bag

Who needs it ...

If you don't get enough sleep, you're not fit for either Raven. We recommend a light summer sleeping bag with a small pack size.


If the sleeping bag is not sufficiently padded, a fluffy pillow can be an advantage. Some sleeping bags already have pillows integrated.


Flashlights / lanterns

Is strongly recommended to find the toilet at night or if something is lost and you have to look for it at night. 

Tables chairs

Almost compulsory at every festival. Chairs or tables to cozy in front of Squat tent and chill.

Pocket knife / multitool

You can always use it. Regardless of whether to pitch a tent, to open cans or to repair something.


This is important to curb overly curious festival-goers a little. In addition, someone doesn't always have to watch out for the tent.

trash bags

In case it should rain. Mostly misused as a document. You can also use it to dispose of your rubbish and help the environment.
