Top Picks for Festival Utility Belts and Bum Bags

The festival bum bag or festival utility belt is one of those things that you wouldn’t be seen dead wearing usually, but they’re somehow essential for festivals! Let’s face it, being able to carry your day-to-day items hands-free is pretty liberating.

What to look for in a festival utility belt or bum bag

What makes a good festival bum bag? Not all bum bags are created equal. Many fashion retailers sell festival utility belts for this very purpose. So what important things should you look for when buying a hard-wearing waist accessory that will serve you many festivals in the future? Let’s find out…


Having multiple compartments is very useful. Zipped compartments are better. Secret zipped compartments are even better again. Having multiple compartments is useful to store your items separately.

You want to keep your tampons and tenners separate, of course, so you need plenty of pockets to keep things in.


Whilst being completely waterproof in British weather would be pretty far-fetched, if there’s any chance of rain you’ll want it to be a water-resistant fabric. You’ll probably have your phone in there, and you don’t want a soggy phone, do you?


You’ll want your festival utility belt to be adjustable and fasten securely. If you’re planning to wear clothes with belt loops then you can loop it through those for extra security.


You’re probably not going to be using this stylish bum bag in your day-to-day life, so you don’t want to be spending too much money on a festival-specific/single-purpose item. I personally think bum bags and utility belts are underrated and should be used more often. Either way, a budget of £10-£15 is realistic for a decent bag.
