After two years of canceled and rearranged festivals, we’re starting to enjoy the prospect of being knee-deep in mud, using disgusting porta-loos and waking up in a tent with next-level dry mouth after dancing the night away to our favourite live music.
What we once took for granted now feels like the promised land and what better way to get excited about attending a music festival than getting the perfect clothes to withstand the British summer at an outdoor festival.
Whether you’ve got tickets for an outdoor vegan food festival, a 5-day camping extravaganza or a proper knees-up at a rave in a field for one day, our Festival Edit has everything you need to be prepared for the fun you’re about to experience.
Be seen and unseen with the Papaya Camo
@kushting repping the Papaya Jonah
Functionality meets festival style with this Jonah. The Jonah already is the perfect festival top with it’s kangaroo pocket for your ‘valuables’ including keys, sunglasses, wallet and much more. And now with the Papaya Camo you’ll be sure to standout from the crowd. These pieces are made in Portugal and are individually hand-dyed in the UK, resulting in a completely unique finish to every piece. What more could you ask for from a festival shirt?
Bucket or Boonie, that’s the question
No festival rucksack is complete without a bucket hat ey? Well there’s not much better than a waterproof Bucket Hat. Made from Waxed cotton you’ll be kept dry from the inevitable british summer rainfall and featuring a hidden stash pocket for whatever you might want to stash in a small pocket that security guards aren't likely to check.
Feel like you need a bit of extra protection and something to stay securely on your head while you’re out of your mind dancing until 6am? Look no further, the boonie gives you everything you need. Same waterproof stashed pocket-ness, extra sun protection and neck fastening device thing for staying on head-ness.
Yes we know that using -ness on words is a bit of lazyness.
Arguably the perfect festival Smock
While the dream festival maybe doesn’t include rain, the likelihood of being drenched stumbling around looking for your tent at 4am in the morning is quite high with any UK festival.
The waxed jenson made from medium-weight waxed cotton is comfortable to warm, should keep you dry as a bone throughout the festival and can be packed away very neatly in your bag. This is definitely a festival must-have.
What do every pair of Wellies need?
Socks may not seem to be an exciting festival Must but no-one wants to get trench foot with 3 more days left of the festival. Stock up on socks and thanks to the 1+1 programme someone less fortunate will also have their toes covered.
A pouch for your festival "essentials"
While we have a few bags that would be useful during a festival - Sacoche and face mask pouch - the Crossbody Shoulder Pouch is definitely our favourite for the festival season. The pouch is made from Dry Waxed Ripstop so it’s extra tough and will keep your precious belongings safe and dry. Also thanks to the size it’s perfect for festivals, where you only need your phone wallet, some sunglasses and a beer in hand to have a good time.
We hope this guide helped and we look forward to dancing at a festival with you soon. Drop us an email with where you're planning to go and who you're hoping to see!
