Who doesn’t love them? You can see many bands in one location and there are delicious drinks and treats. It is both a celebration for friends and for getting to know new people, everyone gathering together to celebrate good music. But one thing must not be missing on these occasions: the perfect and fitting outfit that makes you feel good and shine at the festival.
The first proper music festival as we know it today took place in 1969 and had the name Woodstock Festival. Like our society, of course, festivals have also changed. Although they are mainly about music, getting together with friends, the community, but also the latest fashion trends are increasingly coming into focus. This blog is about the latter. Specifically, the details of a matching outfit at the Coachella and co: the trendiest sunglasses that are worn at festivals.
What began as a one-day festival has grown into the largest festival in Europe today. Tomorrowland seduces the visitors in late April to early May in a fairytale country, where you are spoiled with electronic sounds. David Guetta, Axwell and many other musicians have already appeared on the stages in the Belgian city of Boom. The two offshoots of the festival, TomorrowWorld and Tomorrowland Brazil are no comparison to the original in Belgium, but they are also very popular with nearly 200,000 visitors in Georgia and Brazil.
Big, round glasses with multi-coloured lenses were popular at the Belgian festival last year, as worn by this festival enthusiast.
A similar model is available from Gucci. The model GG 0206SK by Gucci is available with either eye-catching, coloured lenses or simply with blue and gray lenses. Every outfit becomes a real eye-catcher with these spectacles. The glasses perfect the casual festival look with sneakers and a shirt, directing the eyes to the sunglasses without distracting too much.
The Lollapalooza, which initially proved to be a flop and even ended prematurely between 1997 and 2003, is today one of the most successful festivals in the world. Unlike other festivals, the festival founders of Lollapalooza insist that the artists do not perform within a radius of 300 miles for a certain period before and after the music festival. With this clause, the organizers make sure that the fans who want to see a particular band only get this opportunity at the Lollapalooza, and so they are willing to invest in the festival. Lollapalooza also keeps up with the times, as it proved in 2014.The festival became cashless and all payments were made via the entrance bracelets, which were equipped with a special chip. This makes the festival safer because the visitors don’t have to carry large amounts of cash. The venues of the Lollapalooza have changed in recent years, inter alia, between Chicago, Santiago de Chile and Berlin.
In addition to the festival visitors, the stars and starlets at the festival also wear stylish outfits and they are never without the perfect sunglasses! As Lana del Ray shows, not only a sporty outfit is suitable for festivals, but the girlish look is also very popular. Airy skirts with a floral pattern, oversized hats and of course matching sunglasses. Cat-eye sunglasses with a white frame and darkened lenses completes the look perfectly, ensuring a mysterious appearance. You are always in pace with the times with the cat-eye model by Vogue, which simultaneously radiates power and grace.
Another festival that we would like to introduce you to is the Sziget in Hungary. The specialty of this festival is that in summer a small town is created on a Danube island in Budapest. In addition to the music spectacle, catering and entertainment is also provided for the many festival visitors and tourists: there are ATMs, a post office, a lost property office, sports facilities, theatres, shops, restaurants and even program items for children. The bridge leading to the festival grounds was built in 1955 and originally led to the headquarters of the bridge construction companies. Here detailed security checks are carried out. In 2008, a then unknown artist sang on stage for a fee of 30,000 euros. Sziget connoisseurs will know who is meant: Lady Gaga. Another special feature of the festival are the many stages and music genres. Despite the quieter location, the open-air concerts end at 11 pm so as not to disturb the residents. But then the music continues in the soundproof tents.
Glasses not only protect against the UV sunrays, but also against dust. This is practical at the Sziget Festival. Festival visitors wear a casual Ray Ban that is both functional and stylish. A similar model is the Ray Ban in Panto form, where the nose bridge shines in noble gold and you get one or other envious looks.
