Boots & Hearts Festival is for the young-at-heart, the party lovers and, of course, the country fans. With all the excitement around this four-day music festival, you may forget some key things. Here are our top tips to make sure that you’re ready for the time of your life at Boots & Hearts this year.


1. Dress appropriately

Dirt meadows, beverages, and misters means muddy feet and dirty clothes. So, dress appropriately and wear things you don’t mind getting a bit dirty. Boots are always a great idea.

2. Remember your camping essentials

If you’re camping this year, remember your camping gear, flashlight, plastic bags, bug spray, bed padding and small locks for your tent.

3. Better safe than sorry

Long days away from your tent and thousands of fellow campers might lead to some missing items. Lock your valuables in your car so you don’t have to worry while you’re away.

4. Sun protection 101

You will be spending long, awesome days under the Ontario sun. Wear your SPF.

5. Keep the fun going

You might want to spend some time hanging with the crew “next door”. Bring games for your campsite. Plan some fun daytime activities in between music sets. Make some new friends.

6. Mark your territory

The campgrounds will be tents galore! Mark your site with something unique so it’s easier to find it in the dark (or any time of day for that matter).

7. Arrive together

Only one car is allowed per campsite so make sure all of your camping gear is in the same vehicle.

8. Post-festival wind-down

If you need a break after three days of non-stop dancing, head over to Spa at the Horseshoe Resort. It’s the popular thing to do post-festival so make sure to book a reservation in advance.
