We asked two agency veterans at Huge, global ecd Jason Musante and managing director of media Beth Mach, to share what they pack to outlast a day at the festival, which could include a blustery boat ride, a business meeting, a mile-long trek and a four-hour dinner that starts at midnight. Just watch out for spilled rosé.
