Summer time is festival time and in fact it is always with you – smartphone. To make your trip to the festival as perfect as possible, we present some apps that should not be missing on any mobile phone.

Of course, before you start, you’ll need to pack your things first. With the “PackPoint” app you are in a very good position on the subject. There you can not only create packing lists, but also specify the type, duration and location of your whereabouts. This information will adjust the weather forecast and give you useful suggestions to add to your packing list.
For a good overview: Festival Apps
Most festivals (eg Parookaville, Tomorrowland, Airbeat One) now have their own app. There you’ll usually find timetables, a map, and other useful information.

The “Radiate” app is especially good for making new contacts. There you can chat, connect and of course flirt with others about the festival.
find your friends again
With so many people attending a festival, it can easily be that you don’t find your friends. Apps like “Find My Friends” show you where your friends are on a map in real time via GPS.
With iPhones, such an app is already called “Who ist?” with pre-installed.
where is my tent
While we’re on the topic of “discovery”: At the festival’s campsite, you can sometimes lose your bearings, especially after a beer or two. Before you risk wandering around for hours, it’s best to have an app like “Find My Tent” (iOS) or “Tent Finder” (Android) installed at home. After setting up your tent, you can mark the location for a safe place directly in the app.
Do you need to reach out to someone urgently, but you’re not welcome? With the “OpenSignal” app you can see where your best welcome is at the festival grounds.
If you don’t have reception anywhere, you’re well equipped with the “FireChat” app. With “FireChat” you can chat with each other freely from internet and network.
