There’s a lot of planning that goes into attending a music festival. From picking the perfect outfits to sorting out the fests’ busy schedules, music festivals are the ultimate mini summer trip. But there are some essentials you must remember to bring and to help us with that list are the people who know festivals the best — the performers!

At this year’s Osheaga, we surveyed a number of musicians — The Kills’ Alison Mosshart, Stars’ Torquil Campbell and Arkells’ Max Kerman, just to name a few — to see what their must-haves are for festival season. From practical things like a phone charger and a jacket to some more hard-to-obtain things like air conditioning and clean bathrooms (the latter is a pipe dream), take a look below at some of the surprising answers and advice we got from music’s biggest stars!
