8 ways to do SunFest like a baller

You may have been to SunFest a million times, but have you ever thought about these eight tips? Plus, one tip to keep your SmartPhone safe!

1) Download the SunFest App

No, seriously, download the app by CLICKING HERE .

WHY?  If your cell phone service is not working because of all the people at SunFest using all the bandwidth; all the festival information is loaded into the app.  You will still be able to look up the schedule & lineup, map, parking info, and more.

2) Meeting up with friends?

Pick a time and place to meet (again your cell phone might not be working).


3) Watch your phones!

Ladies, your short-shorts are cute, but the small pockets make them prime targets for thieves.   At Coachella a man stole over 100 phones before being caught . Use a fanny pack to store your phone (yes, they are back in vogue).

4) Bring cash

While the floating bars and ticketing take cards most other venders do not. There are ATMs on site, but why pay the fees?

5) Get to SunFest by boat, bike, or Ride Share because parking is limited

CLICK HERE to find out how to boat to SunFest, store your bike, or where you will be dropped off by Uber (or other rides share companies).

6) Know what you can bring

No, you can't bring a chainsaw.  Don't act like your surprised! 

But seriously you can bring:

  • Non-professional cameras (No removable lens)
  • Bags smaller than 12" x 12" x 6" (They are going to be checked)
  • Sealed bottles of water
  • Baby food
  • Collapsible lawn chairs
  • Blankets
  • Umbrellas (but you might be asked to take them down if you're in a concert area)

Things you should leave at home:

  • A bad attitude
  • Coolers
  • Glass bottles
  • Beverages other than water bottles
  • Food
  • Pets (service animals are allowed)
  • Audio recording devices
  • Frisbees
  • Roller skates
  • Scooters
  • Skateboards
  • Bicycles
  • In-line skates
  • Glow products (what is a glow product?)
  • Lasers
  • Sports balls
  • Water guns
  • Weapons
  • Knives
  • Firearms
  • Explosives
  • Drones


7) Know what's in style

Guys, cargo shorts are out (I can hear dads groaning across South Florida). Go for a more fitted look.

Ladies, CLICK HERE to get eight looks for summer. BOHO (Bohemian) is really in for festivals.

8) Do the #FordPhotoHunt

You just got to find nine things at the festival, take photos of them, and upload them to the SunFest app.  You can win great prizes like a JetBlue travel voucher, Apple Watch, Amazon Echo, Ford Tech Pack, or $500 to Tire Kingdom.
