As many of you know, I am a big fan of going to festivals and seeing DJ’s perform at venues in New York City. I got into house and techno music when I was abroad my junior year of college mainly because they played nothing else when you went out to the clubs. For whatever reason it may have really been, it stuck with me, and as a result I try to go to shows whenever I get a chance and whenever I have enough money to afford it. Over the years I have accumulated some apparel and accessories that have become staples for show-going…
1) Fanny packs are essential in order to be hands free. There is nothing worse than having to deal with a handbag falling of your shoulder or a sidebag draped over your entire body. And yes, I am glad you asked, they do have speakers!
2) Festivals happen over the summer, so it is always super sunny outside. Cool neon sunglasses are essential for keeping your eyes protected and dealing with the blaring sun all day long. I have been given many compliments on my smiley face sunnies.
3) My friend and I got matching shirts last year for Electric Zoo and this shirt is by far my favorite of all the bright colored ones I have. Everybody loves a good smiley face tank.
4) As mentioned before, it can get quite hot and quite sunny over the summer. This stereotypical EDM festival hat helps keep you shady and also keeps the hair out of your face. So useful.
