Tips for Beating the Heat

  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day (even if you don't feel thirsty). Try to avoid drinks that dehydrate the body.

    And, if you’re an XPN Member we’ll have beverages available in the Members Only Area, but bringing your own for back up is a good idea.
  • Dress for the heat. Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing in layers. Avoid dark colors that absorb the sun's rays.
  • Wear a hat or bandana to cover your head and neck.
  • Bring a wash cloth or bandana soaked in ice water to wrap around your neck.
  • Wear Sunscreen. Protect yourself from sun exposure even on cloudy or hazy days. In addition to dressing for heat apply a broad-spectrum (protection against both UVA and UVB rays) sunscreen and reapply as indicated, wear eye protection (wraparound sunglasses that provide 100 percent UV ray protection) and wear a wide-brimmed hat.
  • Take frequent breaks to hydrate and cool yourself. Avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.
  • Be a good neighbor. Check in on the elderly, young children and pets to make sure they are not suffering from the heat.
  • Never leave a child or pet in a parked car - even for a few minutes. The inside temperature of a car can quickly reach 120 degrees.
  • We will have a couple of misting tents at the festival so make frequent visits to cool off!
And we are working on more ways to help keep you cool at the Festival grounds throughout the weekend, so join us for a great weekend of music!
