The ultimate guide to mens festival style

Ah, summer. The sunny months leave us with longer nights, frequent daytime boozing and best of all, a tonne of amazing festivals! With big British events like Bestival, Reading and Leeds and V festival still on the way, many of us are preparing for a weekend of mud, warm beer and unforgettable memories. But before hopping on that festival bus so soon, make sure you read our guide to men’s festival style to get you looking and feeling the part.

Pick some patterns

Festivals are the perfect time to have some fun with your wardrobe, so don’t shy away from experimenting with colours and patterns. Palm tree and tropical prints are no longer reserved for 80’s fancy dress, and have become a huge summer menswear trend. Keep an eye out for stars, stripes and anything else that takes your fancy for your festival wardrobe, and you’ll be sure to turn some heads!

Dish out the denim

Denim shorts, jeans and jackets should be a staple for your festival style. Not only do denim garments give you that laid back festival feel, but they’re also durable and versatile enough to pair with any outfit. If you’re feeling extra funky, look for bright colours or distressed denim detailing - just maybe lay off white jeans in the mud..

Remember rainwear

It goes without saying that every British festival is to expect a little (or a lot) of rainfall. Make sure you’re as prepared as possible by packing some quality rainwear. This includes a pac-a-mac that you can carry in your pocket ready for impromptu showers, and a good men’s parka to keep you warm and dry to keep you warm and dry in cooler conditions.

Take a trusty tee

Band tee’s might seem obvious for a music event, but they’re a timeless staple that deserves a place in every festival goers backpack. Just make sure the tee’s logo of choice is a musician that reflects your personal taste - get caught out that you don’t actually know any of Nirvana’s songs, and you might as well bury your head in the mud in shame!

Keep it comfortable

From the dreaded trek to find a suitable camping spot, to the miles you’ll walk from one stage to another each day, get ready to do a lot of walking over the weekend. Your feet will thank you for investing in some comfortable footwear to last you for the entirety of the trip. Wellies are the obvious choice for muddy festivals, but the cheaper you go the less support they give and the bigger likelihood of aching feet and blisters. Consider spending a little more on some quality wellies that will last you many festivals to come.
