Health at Summer Music Festivals is Important for Millennials
Health at Summer Music Festivals is important for Millennials to consider, especially when the actual temperature is over 80 degrees, but the weather outside really feels like it is 100 degrees or more, the sun is beaming down on their faces and they are walking in desert-like conditions.
This might happen at Summer Music Festivals like the very big and popular Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. where attendees flock to the area to see big name artists in all genres of music, during two weekends in the month of April.
Thus, if Millennials go, water, hats, head cover, light clothing, sunscreen and sunglasses are essential so that Millennials do not get burned by the sun, and so that they can help prevent themselves from getting skin cancer later in life, as can happen if Millennials are not careful early on in their lives.
Summer Music Festivals are fun, and can be even more enjoyable, than they already are, if Millennials come equipped with the aforementioned items. Even better, is if Millennials get briefly cooled off by rain showers from Mother Nature, and then the skies clear up again.
If Summer Music Festivals in other locations are in cooler, more spring-like environments like the also big and popular Governors Ball Music Festival on Randall’s Island in New York City for one weekend in the month of June, Millennials might only need to dress for cooler weather, and not pack as much water, or wear the articles of clothing, clothing accessories and lotions, as they would in hotter, and warmer climates.
As Randall’s Island is an island in the middle of the water, just off of the harbor of the Southern-most part of Manhattan in the New York City borough’s downtown Financial District, between New York City’s Staten Island borough, and attendees to Governors Ball, an event which could be dubbed “East Coast Coachella,” or the Coachella of the East Coast in terms of big and popular Summer Music Festivals, access the Governors Ball festival’s outdoor venue, by boat; a fleece and a waterproof parka would be good for Millennials to have so they can stay warm from the wind and breeze from the ocean, and don’t become sick from water hitting their faces from the waves of the boat ride from Manhattan, New York over to Randall’s Island, and any spontaneous rain or thunderstorms that fall from the sky on their way to the event as is also sometimes the case in late spring, especially in New York City, and on the East Coast, during the event, and after the event as they are heading home from it.
The extra layer of clothing will also help prevent Millennials from coming down with a cold, or flu because of the sudden and drastic change in temperature that rain and thunderstorms can bring, and how it affects one’s body and its immune system. Pollen and allergies are also rampant in the spring, therefore making the fleece and parka that much more beneficial and wise for Millennials to wear.
Dehydration is still possible, however, in concert venues in cooler climates because of all the walking, dancing, and moving around that Millennials do, so Millennials should pack some water so they do not become tired and dehydrated. This doesn’t have to be as much water that Millennials would bring to an outdoor concert in the desert, or inside an enclosed indoor concert venue, if a Summer Music Festival is moved, or held inside, and indoors as those in the Mid-western, Western parts, and other parts of the United States are sometimes held, especially where it can be humid in cooler temperatures and climates, because the amount of water for Summer Music Festivals in cooler climates should be enough to get Millennials through all parts, and aspects of the Summer Music Festival they are attending.
A hand-towel is also good for Millennials to have so that they can stay cool, not sweat so much from the heat, and dry off, especially if the location is hot. Sometimes, putting a hand-towel, briefly over one’s head can help alleviate this as well, and if Millennials are lucky to get their hands on one, a hand-towel with cold water on it, feels very good on the face, and provides great relief from the warm, spring-like, and summer-like weather.
Most venues allow items mentioned in this article, but if Millennials are told that they cannot bring in certain items, that are meant to ensure they survive, and have a good time at the Summer Music Festival that they are attending, then they should prepare to either throw it out, or give up the item that they are told by security staff at the attraction, is not allowed into the venue.
Before the Summer Music Festival, and to get good, and full use out of the items so it doesn’t go to waste if something happens to it, Millennials can also drink as much of their water as they can handle before the shows, in case they are told it is not allowed into the venue or onto the property, they can’t bring it in, or are asked to throw it out, along with other items they have brought with them to protect themselves at the event for their own health. They can also laver themselves up with sunscreen in case their bottle of suntan lotion is a no-go.
In all cases, Millennials can also put on, and also possibly bring into Summer Music Festival outdoor venues, bug spray, to help prevent bug bites from Mosquitos, and other critters who like warm and muggy conditions at any Summer Music Festival in the spring and summer.
If a Summer Music Festival is at, or moved to the enclosed indoor venue, as they are sometimes moved indoors because of the weather as previously mentioned; water, light clothing, and hand-towels become essential to help Millennials not sweat since the indoor venues, and locations with retractable roofs like arenas and stadiums can also sometimes feel hot, and rise in temperature from the great entertainment and action from festivals, shows, concerts and the like that go on in and inside them.
Doing the aforementioned precautionary health measures before Summer Music Festivals, will allow Millennials, who attend the events, to enjoy them, during their duration, and after they are over, especially years later, when Summer Music Festivals are great memories, in photos and videos on cameras and smartphones for attendees to look back on as epic times.
