Most Useful Apps for Summer Festivals


If you plan to go to any music fes­ti­vals in the sum­mer, down­load some use­ful appli­ca­tions on your smart­phone in advance.

Watching the weather

Going to the fes­ti­val, you prob­a­bly want to know what kind of weath­er awaits you there. Almost every smart­phone has weath­er apps installed by default. But, as a rule, they issue a weath­er fore­cast with ref­er­ence to set­tle­ments. The fes­ti­val, on the oth­er hand, can be held in an open field far from cities, so you should find out the fore­cast from weath­er maps or with ref­er­ence to a spe­cif­ic geo­graph­i­cal loca­tion. It is worth pay­ing atten­tion to appli­ca­tions like “weath­er radar” (Android / iOS), Flowx: Weath­er Map Fore­cast (Android), Radar Weath­er Map (Android / iOS) or sim­i­lar. They broad­cast the move­ment of air mass­es, pre­cip­i­ta­tion, water tem­per­a­ture on the map in real time, and there­fore allow you to nav­i­gate the fore­cast your­self.

Festival navigation

If the fes­ti­val cov­ers a large enough area, it is very easy to get lost on it. A night­time search for your tent can turn into a real quest. This is where the free app comes in. Tent Find­er (Android / iOS). It fix­es the loca­tion of the tent on GPS, and then helps to find it. In the same way, you can mark oth­er sta­t­ic objects — a parked car, friends’ tents, the loca­tion of the near­est pub­lic toi­lets.

Also check out the app. What3Words (Android / iOS). About the oper­a­tion of this alter­na­tive geocod­ing sys­tem, we already men­tioned a cou­ple of years ago. In short, the sys­tem divid­ed the entire earth­’s land into squares of 3x3 meters. Each square was assigned a unique address con­sist­ing of three words. Using such address­es is much eas­i­er than dig­i­tal geo­graph­ic coor­di­nates. There­fore, in regions where tra­di­tion­al postal address­es do not exist, peo­ple use What3Words as a con­ve­nient alter­na­tive. Since the ser­vice allows you to find lit­er­al­ly any piece of land in three words, it can be used for ori­en­ta­tion at the fes­ti­val.

Search for friends

At the fes­ti­val, you can not only get lost, but also lose your com­pa­ny. You can fix the sit­u­a­tion with the help of the appli­ca­tion Find My Friends (Android / iOS). The appli­ca­tion allows you to track the posi­tion of mem­bers of the same group in real time, send mes­sages to each oth­er, or even acti­vate an alarm if some­one from the com­pa­ny is in trou­ble.

First aid

Fes­ti­vals take place in nature under the open sky, and there­fore any­thing can hap­pen. “First aid” (Android / iOS) is the offi­cial appli­ca­tion of the Inter­na­tion­al Red Cross, which we rec­om­mend hav­ing on your smart­phone, regard­less of whether you ride to fes­ti­vals. The app con­tains sim­ple, step-by-step first aid instruc­tions for sit­u­a­tions rang­ing from sud­den loss of con­scious­ness to snake bites and phys­i­cal injuries.

Keeping Fluid Balance

If the fes­ti­val takes place on hot days, it is extreme­ly impor­tant to keep the flu­id bal­ance in the body. Water­Min­der (Android / iOS) is a sim­ple and unob­tru­sive appli­ca­tion that will peri­od­i­cal­ly remind you to drink water.

Battery saving

Even the most use­ful appli­ca­tions will be mean­ing­less if your smart­phone runs out of pow­er. We rec­om­mend that you nev­er leave the city with­out hav­ing a good pow­er bank with you. But even if you have a spare bat­tery, you should not waste the charge in vain.

Appli­ca­tion Bat­tery HD (Android / iOS) very accu­rate­ly cal­cu­lates how soon the ener­gy in the bat­tery runs out. At the same time, it tells how long the smart­phone can be used for spe­cif­ic tasks. For exam­ple, how long can you shoot videos, surf the net or watch movies. Such an appli­ca­tion can be use­ful in any sit­u­a­tion, but in con­di­tions where there are no out­lets near­by, it becomes espe­cial­ly rel­e­vant.
