While every venue has different regulations for bags that you’re allowed to bring inside, the general rule of thumb seems to be a clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bag that does not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12.″
To help you get your gear in order for Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Governors Ball and other music festivals and concerts, we’ve compiled some great options — mostly from Amazon — for venue-approved bags to carry your belongings in at your next concert.
While you only need an Amazon account to purchase from Amazon, having a Prime account comes with so many more benefits — including discounts, fast and free delivery, and access to movies and TV shows via Prime Video. Check out the 30-day free trial here.
