Yes, it’s just about spring. And that means it’s time to get ready for your favorite music festival, like Lollapalooza, Coachella and Bonnaroo, just to name a few.
Now you can assemble your festival survival kit for less: Best Buy dedicates this entire month to music and great deals during March Audio Fest. From the Beatbox Portable Speaker (save $100) to great buys on the iPod Touch (all models), check out the serious savings.
Wondering what to get? Best Buy has compiled a tech survival kit to avoid common mistakes that first timers (and veterans alike) make when getting ready for the festivities.
Campsite to concert, concert to campsite
Even if they didn’t join you, everyone wants to see the performance as badly as you do, so equip yourself with the Samsung Galaxy G S 5 (1). And make sure you keep the mophie Juice Pack (2) handy, so that after draining your battery — it adapts for any smartphone — you can find your friends after the concert.
If you’re partial to the iPhone, Lifeproof (3) will protect your smartphone from the elements (rain, clumsy friends and drinks) and the mophie smartphone case (4) will keep your phone charged following hours on Instagram and sharing Snapchat videos.
Want to re-live the experience for years to come? The GoPro Video Camera (5) can help make that a reality.
Before, after and in between performances
Instead of stuffing your car with soft drinks and water, pick up the Soda Stream (1) and get both in one. As you’re getting psyched for your favorite concert, make sure you bring the Jawbone Jambox Speaker (2).
If you’re ready to turn in for the night, but the campsite’s still raging, you’ll be glad you have Jaybird Earbuds (3) to block out the noise and recharge.
And with all the munchies you’ve consumed, you’ll want the Fitbit Flex (4) to compare calories against how far you’ve walked. But hey, at least your burger will be cooked to perfection using the iGrill Thermometer (5).
