Concluding our coverage of this summer’s festival season, we take a look back at the features that comprised Festival Week. Enjoy each piece below and stay tuned for future themed content weeks.
Kicking off our week of themed content was a lookbook featuring a model who reminded many of our readers of Justin Timberlake circa 1998. Colorful outfits were comprised of clothing from brands like A.P.C., Penfield, Boneville, Edifice, MCM, BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS, Mr.BATHING APE, Uniforms for the Dedicated, Le Coq Sportif, Frescobol, Vans x Stussy, Patagonia,NEIGHBORHOOD, Tourne de Transmission, Samsoe & Samsoe and Dita x Thom Browne.
Getting ready for our next festival experience, we rounded up a list of 20 products guaranteed to ensure a good time miles from home. Nothing kills a vibe better than being short on the right gear, so our list featured a number of appropriate festival items, from essential necessities to relaxing ways to wind down in between the music and partying.
Among our most popular features, we called on the talents of Josh Parkin to illustrate the 10 people you’re sure to meet at this summer’s music festivals. Everything from rocker Dads to mud mavens and hipsters to hippies was included to the delight of many readers and festival-goers.
Getting introspective, we asked the age old question, “how old is too old?” with regards to attending festivals. An intimidating and humility-inducing subject to approach, our conclusion caused divisiveness amongst our readership.
Turning back to the more lighthearted aspects of festivals, we rounded up the 10 festival fails you should be sure to avoid this summer. While many of us have already learned from our mistakes, if you haven’t, take it from us and abide by our rundown.
Last but certainly not least, we went back in history and related the humble beginnings of six of the world’s best festivals. Included in our selection was Coachella, Glastonbury, Burning Man, EXIT, Woodstock and Isle of Wight.
