Bring really comfortable seating, because it's a long evening sitting on the ground. Also, it's pitch black after so make sure you have a light to get back to the parking lot.

You are sitting on the grass, so bring a blanket and I would also bring a pillow. By the end of the evening my behind was a bit tired. Can't bring chairs if you are planning to sit near the stage.
