Tip #1: Practical packing
Depending on what means of transportation you are using to get to the festival you should pack practically. If you go by car, you can park your car next to your tent, this way you don’t have to carry much with your stuff and you can bring as much gear as you want! Every other means of transportation can give you restrictions on what you can take with you. Make sure you have a good bag which you can use to carry your stuff to the perfect camping spot. Suitcases are a bad idea because the wheels will not work in the grass or sand and they are difficult to carry! Check our checklist for MetalDays and make sure you have everything you need!
Tip #2: Bring garbage bags
Garbage bags are useful for literally every situation you are going to face during MetalDays Festival. Use them to throw away all of your empty cans of beer, stretch them over your backpack to keep your things dry or use it as a festival rug. With a little bit of creativity you can even turn it into a fancy raincoat. Garbage bags also come in handy to put your dirty clothes away and keep them seperate from your nice new outfit. The options are endless.
Tip #3: Bring your inflatable crocodile!
A large part of the time you will spend on the water. The bands only start performing in the afternoon, so you’ll have plenty of time to relax during the day. MetalDays has a beach bar at the point where the two rivers Soca and Tolminka meet. Bring an inflatable bed to float in the rivers or relax at the bar!
MetalDays is de perfect combination of a vacation and a festival!
Tip #4: Take the bus
There are many different transport options for a trip to MetalDays. What we recommend: go by bus. It is the cheapest, greenest and most fun option. Along the way you will meet some fellow festival-goers and on the way back you don’t have to think about the alcohol still in your body. There are bus stops throughout Europe.

Compared to other festivals, the price of drinks at MetalDays is very low! Life in Slovenia is a bit cheaper than in the rest of Europe, in general. At the campsite you only pay €1,- for half a litre of beer. Food and drinks are paid with rechargeable payment cards.
Tip #6: Discover the festival area
MetalDays is not a very crowded festival. It’s a festival where you don’t have to fight for the best spot on the campsite, wait in line forever or push to be in front of your favorite band. It’s a holiday and everyone behaves accordingly. Everything is done calmly and relaxed. With only two stages not far from each other, you can easily switch stages without losing your spot in the middle. Perfect, right?

Tip #7: Discover Velenje
The last one in our list of tips for MetalDays festival: discover Velenje! Velenje is located at a lake and is a paradise for nature lovers. This small town is still a fairly unbothered part of Slovenia, so definitely worth a day to look around! Public transport in Velenje runs very irregularly and often does not reach places of interest in the area. Renting a bicycle or car is the best and most fun way to explore the area.
