With festival season unfolding in New York City and beyond, there’s a familiar buzz in the air — and we’re not just talking about music. From laid-back gatherings to massive events like Governors Ball NYC, there’s something special about enjoying a lovely high amid the backdrop of live music and community. From tips, pre-festival rituals, and product recommendations, explore everything you need to know about cannabis during the festival season.

The Travel Agency’s music festival prep list

To make the most of your festival experience, plan! This list can help you be sure to have an absolute blast on your next festival trip.

Know the rules

Take the time to research the laws and regulations regarding cannabis where the festival is located. Make sure you understand whether or not cannabis is permitted at your event. While you can smoke cannabis in some public areas in New York City, the festival itself may have rules against it. Checking those rules ahead of time can save you from an unpleasant surprise. Always review the festival’s policies beforehand to determine whether bringing cannabis to events like Gov Ball is allowed.

Pack smart

Prioritize essentials when packing for your festival trip to enhance your comfort and enjoyment at the event. Remember to bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated (especially after your sesh), sunglasses, and a hat to shield your eyes from the sun. If allowed, bring some protein bars or something small to snack on for when the munchies kick in. Don’t forget to charge your phone fully before leaving, and consider bringing a portable charger to stay connected.

While it may be tempting to bring cannabis with you, for most festivals, it’s best to consume it before you go and leave the rest at home. This will help avoid complications at security checkpoints and ensure a smooth entry into the festival grounds.

Safety first

Keep your well-being at the forefront of your mind throughout festival weekends. Apply sunscreen to protect your skin, and stay aware of your surroundings as much as possible. If you consume cannabis, make sure your friends know about it.

If you’re camping at the festival, secure your belongings and lock valuables away when not in use. Always trust your instincts; if something doesn’t feel right, don’t hesitate to seek help from the festival staff or security.

Plan your day in advance

Festivals are generally large, busy places and it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of where to go. Review the festival map and schedule beforehand to familiarize yourself with the lineup and stages. You can prioritize which artists you want to see and plan accordingly. It can also help show you the way if you feel overwhelmed. Print out the map and schedule, or secure a festival brochure to keep with you during your visit; this way, you have everything handy if you don’t have cell phone service.

Stay connected

Come up with a plan to stay in touch with your group in case your phone dies or you don’t have service. Coordinate a communication plan and try to check in with one another at specific times throughout the day. This will help ensure everyone stays together and can regroup quickly if needed. Familiarize yourself with the ground layout and amenities like bathrooms, water refill stations, and medical tents.

FAQs about cannabis and Gov Ball NYC

Can you bring cannabis into music festivals?

Cannabis laws vary by location and event, and some music festivals may allow you to bring cannabis products in. However, it’s important to note that you cannot bring cannabis into Gov Ball or many other large, popular festivals.

Also, remember that all bags will be searched for before entry. At Gov Ball, small clutch purses and fanny packs that are 6″ x 9″ or smaller do not need to be clear but can have no more than one pocket. All other bags larger than 6″ x 9″ must be smaller than 12″ x 6″ x 12″ and clear.

Can I smoke at a festival?

Cannabis consumption at Gov Ball is prohibited. Please be mindful of the rules at the festival and refrain from smoking on-site. Instead, consider consuming beforehand and choosing products like edibles that provide a long duration of effects.
