Summer is upon us, and that can mean only one thing: festival season! While you’re enjoying the sights, sounds, and eats, we’re sure you’ll want to bring your favorite vape pen along, so strap on your fanny pack and buckle up those Birkenstocks, because we’re here to talk festival tips!
Before enjoying the musical stylings of your favorite artists, it’s imperative that you read up on their smoking and vapor policies. Having your water vape pen taken away at the gate is enough to put a damper on any occasion, so knowing your event can prevent such a disaster. Most events, like Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Lollapalooza, list their policies in their FAQ section, while others can be a little more discreet. For those that don’t list their policies directly, try the festival forums. Previous festival-goers will have a wealth of information to offer! You could always try winging it, but we promise you’ll be glad you planned ahead.
Once you know where your event stands on vaporizers, you’ve got to choose the right pen for the job. Coachella approves of single-use minis and mid-sized vaporizer pens and electronic cigarettes, but bans liquid refills, so keep such a distinction in mind when you’re packing for your event. If you’re camping, glass is often prohibited, so double-check before grabbing your water bubbler. If you’re not sure, our Slim Twist Batteries are your best choice for smoking on the go; the sleek, streamlined profile fits perfectly into any travel pouch, and it has an auto shut-off feature so it will never overheat in your bag.
When you’ve made it to the event, you’ll want to make sure to keep track of your stuff. Lockers can be a great place if you’re stowing your items for an extended stay. Electric Forest even offers lockers with access to mobile charging! If lockers aren’t quite what you’re looking for, try fanny packs. They might look lame, but they’ve got a functionality that doesn’t quit, and we guarantee you won’t be the only one with one on! If you’re still not convinced, purses and backpacks are definitely acceptable, and while they’ll keep your vape pen close at hand, the convenience of reaching down in front of you can’t be beat!
Speaking of close at hand, we don’t recommend pulling out your pen in a mosh pit at an event like Riot Fest. That’s how things get broken or lost. If you are heading in, hand your pen to a friend or keep it some place secure. Sharing is caring, and you’ll be thanking yourself later! Above all, be conscious of others’ space. Blowing vapor into someone’s face is not cool (unless they’re into that kind of thing). Sometimes it can’t be helped, but try to stay aware of your surroundings. We’re all here to have a good time, so respect others, and you’ll be making new friends in no time!
Between scoring your tickets and getting to the event, music festivals can be a stressful occasion, but we believe packing your favorite portable vape shouldn’t be. Festivals are THE events of the summer, and having your best vaporizer will help you enjoy the tunes that much more; just heed our advice and it’ll be smooth sailing.
Chalice Festival, held from July 7th - July 9th, in Victorville, California brings together arts from all ends of the spectrum but mostly focuses on those in the field of glass blowing and music. Headliners such as Ice Cube, Thievery Corporation, Cypress Hill and many more will bring a great crowd out to the festival. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will each respectively have its own set of performers with new artists out every night.
Centered in the middle of the festival is where most of the glass will be blown. Here, known as The Glass Village, the culture of glass blowing will not only be demonstrated but it will actually be thoroughly explained by the pros themselves. If you are an aspiring glass blower, Chalice is the place to be to get true insight on the industry and culture that surrounds glass blowing. If you are not into blowing glass but are amazed by the works of art that the blowers make, then you’re in luck because many artists will have glass for sale. These hand blown glass pieces are known for their integrity, the creativeness, and the precision that go along with making each and every piece.
Also held at Chalice is a cannabis product competition. Whether it's the best Flower, Solvent, Non-Solvent, or CBD product, all participants will have their equal and fair chance to be showcased as the best product at Chalice Festival. Chalice takes pride in its competition winners, thus ensuring a safe and fair competition and judging threshold for all. Chalice judges include some industry known experts who are highly regarded within the cannabis community.
Chalice will also hold a section for the Visual Arts, which is lead by artists Mear-One, Chris Dyer, Boko Arts, A. Brooks, and Ellie Paisley. Chalice will be a great environment filled with eye-catching art, great hash, and even better glass being blown right before your eyes! Be at Chalice July 7th-9th.
