8 Best Festival Apps

Ready to spend a few days in a muddy field, listen to some great music, or just hang out with your friends on a hard tent floor? Me too!

But with all the fun of festing, there come a few problems. From navigating your way back to your tent to tracking down your lost friends, read on for our selection of the best apps and sites to help you survive three days in a muddy field.

With great service from U.S. Cellular, paired with an awesome device like the iPhone 7, you can take your fest experience up a notch!


Get organized and delegate tasks with Wunderlist! Decide who is bringing the tent, beer, food, or whatever you need for the ultimate festing experience, then assign it to the right person on a group to-do list.

Wunderlist is a free organizational app that allows users to share and assign to-do lists, set due dates and reminders and collaborate on projects from any smart device.

Packing Pro

Find My Friends

No best festival apps list would be complete without a way to find your friends. Never lose your friends again with the Find My Friends app (free for Apple or Google Play) that allows you to find a friend’s location or share your own. 


GroupMe (also free), allows you to communicate seamlessly via group message, no matter your device. Use a phone, computer, or tablet to instantly chat with someone in a group.


Not interested in ‘roughing it’ in a tent? Find, save, and book the perfect place to put your feet up at the end of a long night of festing with the Airbnb app.

Android equivilent is Camp Finder.


Need to split costs for the campsite, food, or more? Try using Venmo (Play Store), a secure way to pay anyone with your bank account or debit card.
