yeah really a fanny pack or a cinch sack backpack are the lightest, best things to carry. or wear dreaded cargo shorts. something with pockets that zip/snap/velcro close. If you're actually that concerned about it, that is. If not, check lost n found when you lose your stuff.
This kid at Lolla lost his cinch sack, and then found it at Lost N found, with his bag o' illegal substances. I was pretty impressed that the folks at the lost n found table didn't just take them. Good guys.

I learned last year, sort of. My phone fell out of my pocket during Municipal waste and the floor for the black stage has these sunken squares. Luckily my phone fell smack dab in one, and after I the pit cleared I realized I didnt have my phone and it was their unscathed.
There are small hooks that you can run a string under most phones, well string that and duct tape it, then put the string through a belt slots in your pants, works pretty well. I think backpacks are too much if youre going to mosh/hc dance. No stage dives allowed last year. Hopefully this year will be different.

Uh, one way to hang on to your phone is to not obnoxiously have your arm raised while snappy crappy pics and piss off the person behind you. And you know, there's no guarantee with crowd surfing and stage diving. At one time, stage diving meant you were so maddened by the art that you felt compelled to throw all caution to the wind and dive into the abyss without regard to your safety. If a person is not doing it steel-boot first goon style, a crowd is usually on the same page with the diver unless a person comes across as a braying "Look at Me!" spectator sport d-bag (which can be common with some peeps crowd surfing, like they can be as lame as an arena rock beach ball. People let you crawl on them, it's not a right). I haven't checked but I suspect there will be a lost and found. Have a ton of fun and glad you're planning on bringing some energy.
