2022 is the year of festival revivals, and we couldn’t be happier. We’re ready to break out from our four walls into the open air to enjoy our favorite bands, DJs, performers and more. Whether you’re riding a ferris wheel in the desert or sipping some VIP cocktails in a misty tent, festival season will surely bring about memories to be loved for a lifetime. 

All the fun can easily distract us from self-care, so L.A. Weekly has put together a handy guide for our inaugural Festival Survival Kit box that includes some of our favorites products and brands that help ensure our festival days are as chill as they are crazy. From the best canned cocktails to skincare that’ll leave you looking like you’ve gotten your eight hours, here are our top picks for surviving this festival season:

Lo-Fi Apertifs

With ingredients plainly inscribed on the bottle, Lo-Fi Aperitifs are a refreshing take on a traditional offering. Each Lo-Fi product is crafted with California wines and natural herbs & botanicals for a classic taste with modern flair.

For some time, Steven Grasse – creator of Hendricks Gin, Sailor Jerry Rum, Art in the Age Spirits, Gansett  Beer, Tamworth Distilling and Guinness Brewers Project – has wanted to create a line of American wine-based aperitifs to go with American craft spirits and cocktails. We found E&J Gallo Winery to be the perfect collaborators, because of their generational expertise and their family heritage. The result was Lo-Fi Aperitifs.

It’s time we ascend beyond “anti-aging” and “turning back time.” Míage believes in transformative skincare that is in complete support and celebration of the present you.

Míage elevates skin in three important steps:

First, leveraging a proprietary La Milpa cactus solution, our products match the natural isotonic conditions of a healthy skin cell. While most skincare products function in harsher hypotonic conditions, Míage creates an isotonic environment that allows active ingredients to naturally (and without force or damage) absorb into cells. 

Second, Míage products release a regenerative nutrient blend that is capable of awakening and activating the dormant epidermal stem cells already present within you. 

Third, as stem cells turn on, Míage’s waterless micro-molecule formulas feed skin a series of essential nutrients, unlocking greater health, vibrancy, and luminosity that blooms from the inside-out.

Mule 2.0

Launched in 2015 by CEO and Founder Lisa Marlow, Mule 2.0 was created to address a desire often voiced by cocktail (especially Moscow Mule) lovers: a consistent and authentic Moscow Mule that can be enjoyed at home. Marlow, a geologist by trade and a mixologist by passion, got to work developing her own formula that would be reminiscent of the original 1941 Moscow Mule cocktail itself. Thanks to her determination, Mule 2.0 was born and cocktail lovers everywhere can now enjoy a delicious ready-to-drink canned Mule at home that packs a punch with flavor and freshness. Now a thriving women owned and operated business, Mule 2.0 is sold in over 35 states across the US including CA. The Mule 2.0 is sold in five incredible iterations: London Mule, Mexican Mule, Moscow Mule, Caribé Mule and Old Fashioned Mule. To learn more, click the link below.

Superbird calls themselves “the best damn tequila that happens to come in a can,” and we don’t disagree. Using agave piñas harvested and roasted locally in Tequila, Mexico, Superbird has created two cocktails handcrafted in batches then poured into individually-sealed cans (we love the prevalence of canned cocktails these days, it’s truly the miracle we have been wishing for), both the Paloma cocktail and the Superbird Free are ripe for your tasting. Their Paloma is sweetened with natural agave nectar and mixed with grapefruit juice and sparkling water to ensure there are no added sugars or artificial ingredients. Their Superbird Free is a flavorful tequila and soda made with Tequila Reposado.

Yada Yada

We wanted to make a brand of flower that’s just easy.

Yada Yada is for people who just want to pop in, get some really good flower for a really good price, then go get high — Easy Breezy.

If people want to delve into the terpene and cannabinoid profiles— which we could geek out on all day—they’ll be very happy with what they find. We make flower that connoisseurs appreciate, but anyone can enjoy.
