Tips To Have The Best Day At GLMFest

As managing developer of Estrella, we strive to continually bring great events into the community. Newland is proud to once again be sponsoring the 6th Annual Goodyear Lakeside Music Festival, fondly referred to as GLMFest. This year’s event will feature headline act Smash Mouth, with hits “All Star” and “Walkin on the Sun”. GLMFest will return April 27 from 4-9:30pm at the Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater. Along with Smash Mouth, the event will feature local bands in multiple genres including reggae, country, alternative, blues, and rock. GLMFest is a favorite Estrella event, so we’ve prepared a few tips to make it a day to remember.

Use Sun Protection
GLMFest day is sure to be warm and sunny, so load up on sunscreen before you leave. When outside for an extended period of time, it’s recommended to use a sunscreen that has at least 30 SPF. Be sure to bring extra with you. In April, the sun doesn’t set until 7 p.m., so you’ll want to reapply at least once to ensure your skin is fully covered. Also consider bringing along your favorite hat and pair of sunglasses for maximum sun protection.

Wear Comfortable Shoes
Between the music, activities, and food trucks, there is plenty to do at GLMFest that will keep you on your feet, which is why it’s important to choose appropriate footwear. Leave your heels at home and opt for comfortable shoes. Even if they aren’t your cutest pair, your feet will thank you at the end of the night. Wearing proper footwear can also prevent other body injuries down the road. Throw on your most comfortable shoes, and you are sure to be up on your feet dancing all night.

Plan Your Travel
Plenty of free parking is available for GLMFest, but we encourage attendees to carpool with neighbors or consider walking or biking to the event. For those who don’t live in our community, be sure to check ADOT for traffic updates. Estrella is excited for the construction on the new Loop 202 to be completed, but in the meantime, be sure to leave yourself plenty of travel time.

Pack The Essentials
Be sure to pack everything you need for GLMFest. Blankets and lawn chairs are great items to bring to set up a nice viewing area to watch the bands, but please leave personal tents at home as they can be disruptive to fellow attendees. Keeping yourself hydrated during GLMFest is also crucial. Pack a water bottle with you before you head out and keep it handy. Drinking water throughout the day will rehydrate your body and will allow you to keep your energy up through the night.

Bring Your Friends And Family
The only thing that can make GLMFest any better is enjoying the day with friends and family. Along with a diverse range of music, there are a variety of fun activities and delicious eats for all ages. Children will love the interactive kids’ zone, while adults can check out the wine and beer garden.

These are just a few things to keep in mind as you prepare for a day of music, food, and fun at GLMFest.
