The Best Music Festivals In The World To Be Ready For

No matter what genre of music you listen to, there are all types of music festivals available around the world.

Unfortunately, there are not that major music festivals in my country but we also have summer music festivals that last for more than a few days.

So, I thought, giving you tips about what to wear at music festivals should be pretty helpful to get ready for them.

Before I start sharing music festival outfits, let me share a shortlist of music festivals you may need to get ready for.

There are some very popular music festivals that you should attend.

Some of the most well known ones are Coachella, ultra music festival, Tomorrowland, and others.

The good thing is you can wear all these outfits (that I am going to share today) to any of those music festivals. No matter which one you choose.

Let me give you some general tips before sharing actual outfits.

Going to music festivals means you should do everything you enjoy there. But it’s also important to dress in appropriate clothes.

What I mean by that is you have to feel comfy and confident in every single outfit you wear at a summer festival.

And we have no rules here. You can wear whatever you want to wear.

So, don’t listen to anyone who says don’t wear jeans, or long sleeve tops or whatever on music festivals.

I do have some outfits that contain denim jeans but as I already said above, the main thing here is to feel comfy in them.

You can also find some additional tips that you should know before going to music festivals. I am sure you are gonna thank me later.

And now, it’s time to start creating cute and comfy outfits for music festivals.  

I searched and decided to style summer music festival outfits from online trusted brands.

And if you want to find other online stores that you can shop at check out this article here.

What To Wear AT Music Festivals – Tips And Tricks

Now let`s talk about tips you`ll love about what to wear at music festivals. 

When I was researching, I found out things you don`t have to wear at music festivals.

One of them is a romper or a bodysuit. Choosing them is not a very smart decision, because imagine you need to go to the toilet and guess what?! You will need to get almost naked to do this thing. It’s not a very bathroom friendly piece, you know what I mean.

Another thing that some people found weird to wear at music festivals is a skirt or a dress.

While you are going to a festival, you will undoubtedly dance a lot. And unless you wear something long (in summer that`s hard) you feel very uncomfortable.

So, keep in mind to avoid wearing a short dress or skirt for that day. Or another way, you can wear swimwear underneath the dress. That gives you an opportunity to move around as you wish.

I mentioned above, waist bags are the best option to wear at music festivals. The reason behind it is the thing that, in summer, under the hot direct sun you would definitely get a tan.

And the crossbody bag will leave a weird tan shape on your body. Also, while dancing it won`t be comfortable to dance with it. 

Don`t even think about taking a backpack with you.

I know it’s just a music festival, but you need to make your personal things secured somewhere. But having them out of your sight is not a really good idea.

What to take with you?

In most cases, music festivals are some days or a week long. Sometimes it runs for a month too. And if you have a ticket, once you go in you can`t go out (if you did anyway, you can`t enter again).

So, there are some things you definitely need to take with you. It`s not required but at least it`s your job to do, to keep elementary hygiene.

The first useful thing you should carry with you is definitely dry shampoo. It will give you the ability to keep your hair clean, as much as possible.

I mentioned direct sun several times in this blog post. In summer usually, the weather is hot enough, so don`t forget to grab sunscreen to music festivals as well. 

Because you will be out the whole night, you have to take a jacket with you. No one knows how the weather changes during the day. Even take the raincoat with you. You don’t need to be wet for some days, or worse, you don`t wanna leave the party. Keep that in mind!

Another must-have thing for music festivals is cash. Yeah, don`t forget to take a little amount of cash with you.

You will need money for going to the toilet or buying a bottle of water or whatever you`ll need. But don`t take too much, because there is a high risk of losing it in the crowd of people.

And the last thing you will become best friends with during those days is wet wipes.

Before going to sleep, you need to remove makeup,  but you can`t take the whole makeup bag with you. Buy a pack of baby wet wipes and have them safely kept in your bag. Use it for either removing makeup or cleaning your body.
