Pack light! Fanny packs, belt bags, crossbody bags and sling bags are great for music festivals and concerts, especially if you’re going to be outside and need a hands-free way to carry your belongings.

For the stylish minimalist, Lululemon’s Adventurer Belt Bag ($68) offers up enough room to hold smaller items that you might need to take to a music festival (your ID, cell phone, portable charger, etc).

The beloved belt bag has interior and exterior pockets with a zipper closure and adjustable belt.


The Adventurer bag measures 11 inches x 3 inches x 6.7 inches, and it’s highly recommended with more than 300 customer reviews.

“I was looking for something that fit more than your regular belt bag,” reads one customer review on the Lululemon website. “I wanted my whole billfold to fit in it because of my busy life. This is perfect! Just what I need. Plenty and no extra. Perfect for daily use for my busy life.”

The Adventurer bag is currently available in tan, black, twilight rose and heritage camo, and the sizing is just right, as another customer review noted: “Not [too] small, not [too] big! Perfect for holding a little bit more! I wear it as a crossover bag.”

The bag was on sale for $49 in aquamarine, but it sold out on Wednesday (Aug. 30).

Despite hundreds of positive reviews, some customers have had issues with the Adventurer’s adjustable strap. If you’re interested in a cheaper alternative, the crossbody bag pictured below is just $17 at Amazon.


The Telena Fanny Pack has a 4.6-star customer rating and it’s available in nine different colors including light brown, black, blue, beige, green, brown and pink. You also might want to consider the bestselling Ododos Unisex Mini Belt Bag ($16) at Amazon and similar Lululemon bags such as the Mini Belt Bag ($38) and the All Night Festival Bag Micro 2L ($68).


This micro version of Lululemon’s All Night Festival Bag ($78) can be worn as a crossbody versus around the waist like a traditional fanny pack. It has multiple pockets and easy access to your concert essentials. The foldable bag is available in forest green, twilight rose, allspice, black/silver and black/gold.
