4 Tips for Dayging at Imagine Music Festival
In under a month, Imagine Music Festival kicks off with fury as one of this summers most anticipated camping festivals. With a projected 30,000+ EDM lovers planning to suit up in their weirdest outfits and camp for 3 days in the late Summer weather, the concern of safety is of utmost importance.
With the luxury of enjoying your own drinks back at your camp site, Imagineers will surely enjoy some grade A Day Raging, known by our staff as “Dayging”. With dope tunes & thousands of strangers to meet a few hours away, a few beers, a slap of the wine bag and a snack will surely be the way many will start their day. Safely & properly.
Daryl will have forgotten these simple rules, dayged too hard, and blacked out; missing all his favorite sets.
Don’t be like Daryl.
I know it sounds dumb & obvious – “Drink Water.” But, clearly it’s not, because I’ve seen MANY Daryl’s lose a whole day from clearly being dehydrated. So before you reach the point of no return like Daryl did, make it a big deal to HYDRATE PROPERLY.
Set an alarm.
Have your friend force feed you.
Sneak water bottles into your case of beer.
But when you’re in the sun, a healthy hydration plan is to consume 8 oz of water per TWO alcoholic beverages.
Stay in your Lane
It’s day one of Imagine Music Festival. Squad wakes up. You go into the cooler. There’s can’s of bud light, a bag of Franzia, and the primest handle of Skull Vodka. Each of these, individually, are historically known to make a festival day a great time. But if you’re trying to actually enjoy both the day adventuring AND the headliners at night, you might want to refrain from switching them around too much.
Some people, like Daryl, will call bullshit. Claiming that only ABV and sheer volume are the only things that matter. Which, hey, may be true. But which of these scenarios do YOU think will land you in half past faded o’clock?
- 10 beers in 6 hours?
- 4 wine bag slaps, 3 pulls of Skull, 2 beers, and 1 shot of warm Cuervo in 6 hours?
Exactly. Don’t be a Daryl. Stay in your lane.

Quite possibly the most crucial rule to keep in mind on this list, but sadly, usually ignored. No, i’m not talking counting every sip. Just… don’t drink like you broke up with your liver and trying to kill it before noon. Like Daryl does.
EVERY squad has that one person on Day 1 that always goes WAY too hard. They hit the point of no return before you all go inside, and you have to leave them sleeping it off in the canopy area. The sun hits them from one angle. Their faces burn on only the left side. You call them “Two Face” the rest of the weekend.
Daryl is “Two Face”. Don’t be Daryl.
It’s silly that we have to list this…but it’s sadly often forgotten.
It’s simple. Even if you aren’t hungry…EAT. If you plan to drink anytime soon, make sure you power down a burger, some festival chicken or even the internationally trusted “Slice of Zah”. No one wants to ride in an ambulance and watch you get a stomach pump cause you refused to eat the Granola Bars because they were melted.
So as basic as this may seem, share this article or tag some friends that are going to take on Imagine Music Festival with you. You might just very well save them from….well, you guessed it… a Daryl.
