Hey, festival babes! It's your girl, Kelsey Campion from Fringe+Co, and today we're taking a trip around the country to explore some of the most iconic music festivals out there. I've got the scoop on these amazing events and, of course, the sassy Fringe+Co outfits that'll make you the queen of the scene! So, let's get this party started and dive into these unforgettable music festival outfits that embody the sparkle aesthetic we all love!
Austin City Limits - (Austin, Texas) October
Two weekends of pure musical bliss, Austin City Limits (ACL) is a festival staple in the heart of Zilker Park. With eight stages, mouthwatering local eats, and the ACL Art Market, you'll be exploring and grooving all day long. And don't forget about Kiddie Limits for the little ones!
We recommend: Strutting your stuff in our sequin jumpsuit or short paillette caftan for the ultimate ACL experience. The sparkle aesthetic is strong with this recommendation and may cause some festival outfit envy! Pair it with some comfy kicks, and you'll be set to dance the days away!
Lollapalooza - (Chicago, Illinois) August
Get ready for four jam-packed days of music in Chicago's Grant Park. Lollapalooza (Lolla) boasts 9 stages and over 170+ artists, making it a music lover's paradise. Lolla is four fully packed days of music with a plethora of genres sure to fulfill any music lover's needs. With roots set in 1991 Lolla is hailed as one of the longest-running music festivals in the United States as well as one of the most well-known music festivals worldwide.
We recommend: Mix and matching your favorite sequin crop top and sequin pants! Complete the look with our drawstring rainbow mesh bag to hold all your festival goodies. This combo is bound to make your music festival outfit stand out! Don't forget a lightweight jacket for those cooler Chicago nights.
Stagecoach - (Indio, California) April
Yee-haw! Stagecoach is the world's highest-grossing country music festival, and it's the perfect place to break out those cowboy boots. Enjoy a weekend of country, folk, Americana, and bluegrass tunes, with the option to camp on-site in an RV.
We recommend: Rocking a fringe vest (tinsel or non), sequin pants, and some rhinestoned sunglasses for those sunny Cali days! Embrace the sparkle aesthetic (with a country twist) and be the star of the show. And don't forget a cozy blanket for those chilly desert evenings.
Hangout (Gulf Shores, Alabama) May
Beach vibes and music are a match made in heaven, which is why Hangout Music Festival is a must-attend event! This three-day party takes place directly on the white sandy beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama, every May, which means you can party comfortably in some beachside festival outfits.
We recommend: Bringing a mesh short caftan to throw over your swimsuit and a blinged bucket hat to protect you from the sun! Pair it with some cute sandals, and you will be turning heads all weekend long.
Boston Calling (Boston, Massachusetts) May
Located in Harvard's Athletic Complex, Boston Calling is a newer festival that's making waves. Enjoy five stages, over 50 artists, local food vendors, art installations, and a 100-foot Ferris Wheel with stunning views of the city and stages.
We recommend: Sporting your favorite party wrap to keep your hair up, and a party tee to match the headliner (don't forget to get yours custom-made if not already available!). Throw on some comfy sneakers and a stylish backpack to carry all your essentials. You can amp up your regular music festival outfits with just a little sparkle aesthetic!
Bonnaroo (Manchester, Tennessee) June
Bonnaroo is the ultimate festival experience for those who don't want to miss a single second of festing fun! Known not only for its iconic lineup but also for its on-site lodging by way of "car camping." With over 10 stages hosting nearly 150 acts, staying on-site is your best bet on making sure you don't miss a moment. Bonnaroo also prides itself on its green initiatives, making it an eco-friendly choice for festival-goers.
We recommend: Wearing a short sequin caftan to keep you cool, or in the spirit of Planet Roo, your favorite retired Fringe piece! This is a great chance to show an older piece some love and bring it back into the spotlight (or sunlight)! Pair it with some eco-friendly accessories and sunblock for the ultimate Bonnaroo experience.
And there you have it, lovelies! Get ready to rock these iconic music festivals in style with the sassiest, most fabulous Fringe+Co outfits. Wishing you all an unforgettable festival season full of laughter, dancing, and unforgettable memories! Happy festing!
