Festivals aren't just about legendary live bands or raving-it-up in the rain (although both of these are great). Bespoke, alternative festivals have popped up all over the place.
Get arty, practice your live-poetry skills and cloud-gaze to a backdrop of mellow beats – or maybe a local foodie festival is forthcoming.
Come rain or shine, rock or pop, stay sartorially savvy with these five festival outfit ideas for guys.
Band tee time
Key Piece: Official Bob Dylan T-Shirt, £14.99
Band tees are back, pick your fave and wear them on your chest with pride. This Boy Dylan t-shirt is a trendy tribute, or rock-out with a Guns & Roses or ACDC print tee.
Urban Outfitters have released a rocking collection just in time for festival season. Style your band tee with black ripped raw edge denim shorts.
Vintage sunny separates
Key Piece: Men's French Connection Jopadhola Crew Neck Jumper, £29
Create a colourful look with a vintage feel – choose cotton-jersey sweatshirts and classic crew neck tees in pastel colours.
Faded pastel colours create that vintage effect – look for light yellow, faded raspberry and powder blues with a washed-down finish.
Wear them with distresssed denim shorts and frayed hems. Top off the look with a pair of vintage style sunglasses, like some half-frame Clubmasters.
Key Piece: adidas Originals Windbreaker, £34.99
Keep your s**t together with a small backpack, sensible shoes (no white plimmies unless they're disposable) and a lightweight waterproof jacket.
An adidas Originals windbreaker jacket is a statement piece and a well-worth-it investment.
Cotton canvas backpacks in khaki and navy are great for festivals, Swedish label Sandqvist have a design-led range worth checking out.
Other festival essentials to pack are a couple of grey marl cotton-jersey tees and a zip-up hoodie.
Embroidery & patterned trims
Key Piece: Ted Baker Woven Geo Print T-Shirt, £45
Bohemian touches and embroidery add interest to simple t-shirts and denim. Look for woven fabrics and linen shirts for easygoing summer style.
Patterned details on t-shirt hems and cuffs are festival-fitting and add fun. Look out for distressed denim shorts or jeans with contrast patch pockets in bright embroidered patterns for extra detailing.
Key Piece: Camo Print Men's Onesie, £20
Getting dressed in a tent is a challenge. Slip-on a comfy jersey onesie at the start of the festival and hope for the best.
Look for zip-up onesie styles with incorporated hoods for added benefits. A camo-print onesie will diguise all manner of horrors, grass and mud stains included.
