Attending a festival is an intense, exciting experience bringing you distilled joie de vivre with heaps of unforgettably crazy moments, drunken philosophizing with complete strangers, all-night-long partying, skull-cracking hangovers, short-lived romances, and (probably and hopefully) great music. There are, of course, many obstacles to overcome and plenty of dangers to avoid while at a festival, and failing to take preventive measures can lead to unwanted and unpleasant consequences as fast as you’d get high from secondhand smoke at almost any festival in California. You can make your festival experience even better with the apps covered in our compilation.

Find My Friends

Even if you’re attending a festival with your innermost inner circle made up of your best friends with whom you’ve been inseparable ever since you were kids, there’ll come a time when you wander away from each other. With Find My Friends, arranging reunions will be as easy as understanding Rihanna’s lyrics. Find My Friends comes equipped with a map on which you can locate your friends (and vice versa, meaning they can locate you), a chat feature, real-time location and news sharing, and navigational help.

Battery Doctor (Power Saver)

Although you’ll be out and about champagning and campaigning like an NBA player at a Houston strip club, you’ll surely be using your Android phone quite a lot to shoot videos, take photos, post updates on social media, and last not least to call your friends and parents. Since phone charging options are, in most cases, far and few between at festivals, you have to be conscious of your battery level at all times and do everything you can to extend the battery life of your device. With the wholly free Battery Doctor (Power Saver), you can eliminate power-draining apps with a single tap, review which apps and features are the most notorious battery killers, see the accurately calculated remaining battery time, schedule power saving modes, and get smart charging tips.

Imagine this worst case scenario. It’s late at night, you’ve already had a few. You’re making your way through a forest of tents, treading on poorly-lit, dusty paths. Somehow, your wallet slips out of your pocket. The instant you notice it, panic floods your mind, and while you’re trying to calm your frantically racing thoughts, you turn on your phone’s flashlight, and immediately start searching for your wallet – but it’s way too dark and the flashlight is too weak. We sincerely hope you’ll never lose your wallet – especially not late at night at a festival -, but a super bright flashlight can come in handy in several situations at a festival, which is why you should download Super Bright LED Flashlight to your Android phone before setting off to have the time of your life. Super Bright LED Flashlight is easy to use, has a surprisingly handsome user interface, and packs an adjustable strobe/blinking mode tailor-made for techno parties.
