When it comes to music festival fashion- the only rule to remember is that there are no rules at all! Being able to spend a weekend in the most creative, outlandish, skimpy, or colorful outfit of your rockstar dreams is one of the funnest parts of a music festival! Whether you’re a Coachella queen, Roovian goddess, or Lolla lover- there’s a music festival with the vibes for you! If endless good times, high-fives, and playing dress-up while listening to dope music from all genres sounds like a good time to you..? Check out our Coachella – vs- Bonnaroo -vs- Lollapalooza 2018 music festival fashion guide to get you inspired!
Coachella (April 13-15, 21-22)
Coachella is likely the most fashion-forward of the 3! It takes place is of sunny Southern California in April before the temps are too blazin’ hot and the evenings are still on the cool side. You can camp or grab a room for this festival- so pack accordingly, especially if you’re going the tent route! Wear your fashion in layers so you have something for the warm sunny day and cool evening. Grab a denim jacket with a stand-out lace cutlet feature or other dope patches and embellishments! This 90’s grunge look is making its 21st century comeback- rock it with a pair of super cute sunnies and some ornate cowgirl boots.
Pair your trendy Coachella fashion with something bright, colorful and fun on your face! Don’t forget the glitter- I’m talking head to toe shimmer boo! And I’m positive you can expect to see a rainbow of hairstyles this year, too, so don’t be scared to pop out that bright teal wig you’ve been saving for a right moment!
Bonnaroo (June 7-10)
Roo is a magical place where high-fives rule the land and with all the crochet, bandanas, swimsuits and more it seems like an ABC party is going on. You can really wear anything you like at this long weekend of debauchery as long as you wear it with good vibes and a smile! Be prepared to camp out at this middle Tennessee festival in the hot & humid southern summer. I recommend about 4 (battery operated!) fans per tent and large coolers of ice. Keep it cool in some cute crochet crops and comfy shorts! Don’t forget sun protection, and I would recommend a cute floppy hat to save your skin in the daytime.

Lollapalooza (August 2-4)
If you’re ready to get your rock face on then Lollapalooza is the festival for you! This Chicago based festival happens in the middle of the city in Grant park with sick views of the Chicago skyline. You’ll need to find lodging to go to Lolla, so you better book early (like 6 months ago), but at least you have the pleasure of showering daily and sleeping more than 6 inches off the ground in a comfy bed! Throw on a sexy rocker-tee style dress with some grungy boots to take on the city of Chicago. Rock it with some bold jewelry to really set the mood right!

Go glam at Lolla, you are in the city after all! Rock a sexy cat eye or a bit of smoke, and be sure to pair it with a bright, bold lippie. You can rock a funky coral-red, like Poppy from April LiveGlam KissMe lippies or a sexy, satin pink like Butterfly, or go funky with Soft Mist metallic nude color!
