The Pitchfork Festival in Chicago celebrates its 14th year this summer. With headliners like The Isley Brothers, Robyn, and Haim, it’s no wonder the expected attendance for the 3-day festival is 60,000 people. This year’s Pitchfork will boast over 40 acts, highlighting the best in emerging talents and old festival favorites.

Level Up Your Music Fest Camping Experience by Bringing More Than Just Basics

Campouts have long been a part of music fest culture; unfortunately, Pitchfork Fest’s grounds don’t have room for festival camping. But don’t fret. To stay closer to the action, save money, and make the most of your festival experience camp out at Camp Bullfrog Lake or Camp Sullivan on all three days of Pitchfork.

When camping at Camp Bullfrog Lake or Camp Sullivan, it doesn’t matter if you’re there for the festival or camping out in general, you still need to come equipped with camping gear and essentials. Because your campsite will be home-base for the next 3 – 4 days, you’ll want to make it as comfortable as possible.

Pitchfork Fest has a Kids’ Zone and if you’re bringing the whole family, you need to come equipped with more than just the basics.  While campsites boast many amenities like restrooms and showers, you have to remember that Pitchfork Fest attracts 20,000 attendees per day. That means most hotels, motels, and camping grounds are going to be full of Pitchfork Fest attendees. Expect there to be long lines everywhere, including at the bathrooms and showers.

Skip the lines by bringing your own portable lavatory and portable shower system. Not to mention, you and your friends will also lower the risk of picking up a disease or fungus from using communal bathrooms and showers.

The RESTOP Personal Lavatory System bundled with the NEMO Helio Shower comes with a sturdy, collapsible privacy shelter, the award-winning NEMO Helio Shower, a commode with full-sized seat, and a supply of waste bags. Waste Bag is an industry standard term that stands for ‘Waste Alleviation and Gelling’ Bag. Restop waste bags are odor-free, puncture-proof, spill-proof, and disposable.

The beauty of the NEMO Helio shower is that it’s not like those gravity camp shower that produce dismal water pressure. With a 2.9-gallon capacity and 7-foot hose, this award-winning shower system delivers pressure that’s strong enough to wash your hair and rinse of your gear. Not to mention, it’s engineered to last, so this high-quality portable shower will make a great companion for many more music fests and camping trips to come.

The privacy shelter’s quick connect joints allow easy set-up and breakdown. It can also function as a changing room. Its zipper locks from the inside, so you don’t have to worry about anyone busting in on you while you’re doing your business.
