With the restrictions of COVID-19 hopefully behind us, music enthusiasts from across the country are flocking back to festivals. Big events such as Leeds Festival, Reading Festival and Creamfields are on the horizon, and the music scene couldn’t be livelier. Bearing this in mind, here are some handy hints and tips for vaping at festivals.
Can you vape at festivals?
At most festivals the rules around vaping are the same as smoking (1). While outdoor festivals are generally pretty vaping friendly, smoking and the use of e-cigarettes and vapes isn’t allowed in public spaces or buildings. This usually includes inside the arenas.
Stocking up for vaping at festivals
Tents, clothes, and supplies are a necessity when packing for your favourite festival. But what about if you’re a vaper? Here’s a nice list of the basics that you’ll need to add to your packing list before you head out to your chosen festival.
First things first, consider how long you are going to be there and how much e-liquid you will need. Making sure you have enough liquid to keep you going is a must. If you’re unsure of how much you usually vape then take extra. It’s better to have too much liquid than run out half way through your weekend.
There’s nothing worse than having your coil burn out when you’re not expecting it. Make sure you pack some extra coils. Nobody likes to be stuck with that nasty burnt taste all weekend.
A lot of festivals offer charging points, but there can be long queues, and some might charge a fee. Plus nobody wants to miss out on watching their favourite artists perform while stuck waiting for your vape to charge! It’s a good idea to take your own portable charging bank, and don’t forget your charge cables. You might even want to take a spare battery with you.
This might not seem the most obvious one, but tissues are really useful when changing your coil or cleaning up if you’ve over-filled your vape. They’re also handy for keeping your vape clean and dry if the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Having your vape with you is great, but what if you break or lose it whilst you’re there? It’s a good idea to pack a secondary device that you’ll be able to vape if anything happens to your main one. If you don’t already have a secondary device then consider packing something pocket-friendly and simple such at the Skope Air.
Disposables are perfect for taking to a festival. You can pack a couple incase anything happens to your main device, or as a backup while charging. They don’t need re-filling, fiddly coil changes or charging and you won’t be heartbroken if you manage to lose it during the festivities. Why not check out the VLTZ range? Whether you’re looking for a standard disposable VLTZ Bar, a pre-filled pod VLTZ Flex or a refillable disposable VLTZ Re:fuel that can last you all weekend. All VLTZ products feature intense flavours, are cost-effective, simple-to-use and convenient. Making them perfect for festival-goers.
What not to do
One of the biggest issues at festivals, especially when using disposables, is waste left behind. Each disposable vape contains a battery and should be disposed of responsibly. Luckily you can drop off any used disposables at any of our Totally Wicked stores and we’ll take care of recycling them for you.
