There is no doubt that we all miss the adrenaline rush and the fun that comes with concerts and music festivals. They allow you to enjoy your favorite artists and also discover new ones in an event where there is only room for entertainment and emotion. They are places where you can loosen your inhibitions, meet new people and enjoy seeing the outfits of the most creative people who walk around the venue. Maybe you don't miss the portable toilets of these types of festivals so much, but... I'm sure that right now you wouldn't mind using them in exchange for going to one of them.
Music festivals were born thanks to the most important rock and pop groups of the 60s and 70s. They were the ones who promoted the creation of a space in which various artists of more or less the same style came together to create a show full of stimuli for and by music fans. Some of the pioneering festivals were the Woodstock Festival in the United States and the Isle of Wight Festival in England. Both starred artists and rock fans.
Currently, festivals are the star of our summers, or rather, they were the star of our summers. The health crisis swept away all kinds of celebrations and festivals were not going to be the exception. Since then, we long for the moment to be hoarse again singing the songs we like the most with a good beer in hand.
In addition to being an event dedicated to music and the culture that surrounds it, it is also a space where you can appreciate the most daring and crazy fashion you will ever see. On the lawn of a festival, any style is suitable as long as it is carried safely and firmly. Chiara Ferragni, Alessandra Ambrossio or Dulceida are just some of the stars of the most photographed looks at festivals like Coachella or the Madcool.
In short, festivals are the big event of the year and represent a culture full of music, food, drink and good company. This summer 2021 seems to have reconciled a bit with the festivals, and also, if the situation allows it, there are some that already have tickets on sale. We can't wait any longer to enjoy them!
From Hanukeii we bring you 5 of the top festivals in the world and 5 outfits that you will not want to miss when they are celebrated again.
Coachella: Where Hollywood stardom and music ruled the stage.
If we talk about famous festivals around the world, we cannot fail to mention Coachella. It is one of the most anticipated events of each year and takes place in Indio, California. Its duration is three days and it has a standard campsite and a Vip campsite for people who want to enjoy the festival to the fullest. Thousands and thousands of people come to it every spring in search of a unique experience and memorable performances. The capacity of the venue is 250.000 people approximately.
The average price of their tickets is 500 euros and despite their high cost, they don't take a single day to sell out. Year after year, the organizers of the festival bring together artists such as Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Kanye West, Lady Gaga or Beyoncé. In addition to the artists on stage, the event sees a huge crowd of celebrities, singers, models and influencers from all over the world every year who join in enjoying the festival.
When is Coachella coming back?
Unfortunately, we will have to wait until next year 2022 to enjoy its music and atmosphere in a safe way. But in the meantime, we can start to get inspired by some of the top looks from previous years.
It is clear that festivals are there to break the rules and release the adrenaline that you have not been able to release the rest of the year. For this reason, it is in this type of event where the liveliest outfits of the entire festival season emerge. Fringed T-shirts, frayed shorts, cowboy boots, see-through dresses, fanciful headbands and feathered earrings. These are just some of the garments that are most successful on the Coachella lawn, and also the most photographed by the Influencers of fashion who attend the event. If you decide to go to the festival and live the experience, select one of the above garments, add glitter all over your body, put your hair in braids and do the most strident makeup to shine on the Coachella stages.
Festivals are the perfect space to give free rein to your imagination and fill your suitcase with new combinations. Despite being the time to innovate, be true to your personal style and don't dress up. Whatever you wear, let your look make you feel comfortable and beautiful. If you plan to go to Coachella next season, be cautious and start visiting your favorite clothing stores now!
Tomorrowland: A nation of electronic music.
Tomorrowland is one of the most famous techno music festivals on the music scene and also the largest in the world. It is held every summer in Boom, Belgium and its venue has a capacity for more than 400.000 people The price of your ticket amounts to 1000 euros and it is a real luxury to be able to live this experience. If you want to treat yourself, you should know that this year 2021 it reopens its doors during the last weekend of August and the first of September and its tickets are already on sale.
If you want to know how the festival works and the looks of its hottest guests, keep reading!
Tomorrowland was launched in 2005 by two Dutch brothers who worked in an events company. Their passion for techno music led them to create the festival, and since then, it has received artists such as David Guetta, Alesso, Tiësto every year. ,
Tomorrowland's looks tend to be much more extreme and hardcore than Coachella's, but again, the festival will allow you to play with your imagination and come up with new combinations without no rules. Some of the most repeated garments at the event are the t-shirts of rock, heavy metal or punk groups, shorts jeans with studs and rips, black ankle boots with notched soles, long knitted vests and accessories with feathers and beads. Combine these pieces with temporary tattoos, glitter and intense makeup and you'll be the envy of your entire Instagram for a few days.
Living the experience of a festival of this caliber is undoubtedly an adventure that will make your look need nothing more than attitude and energy to enjoy their performances.
Rock In Rio: The Latin American bet in one of the cities with the greatest entertainment in the world.
This festival was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil more than 30 years ago. It is held every 2 years and it is an incredible occasion to enjoy the most successful pop, indie, rock and alternative music of the moment. Cities like Lisbon, Las Vegas and Madrid have been the great hosts of the festival on several occasions. This year 2021 the event was going to take place in Santiago de Chile for the first time in its history, but as we already know, the festivals are not going through their best season and Rock In Rio has had to lower the blind this summer.
Through its stages we have seen international artists of various kinds such as Rihanna, Elton Jhon, Taylor Swift, Metallica, Katy Perry, Shakira or Alejandro Sanz. It is a musical show that brings together great performers who have triumphed in the industry scene for years. In addition, Rock In Rio also gives space to new singers and music groups to make themselves known to an audience dedicated to the industry.
As for looks, the festival gives room for creativity and personal style. It is a much more mainstream event than the previous ones and in it we can see outfits of the simplest and most wearable to enjoy a festival full of dance, music and fun. The star item of this type of event are the shorts, which in addition to being able to combine them with an endless number of garments, are also very appropriate for the heat that you will spend watching your favorite artists. Opt for a basic set made up of denim shorts and a basic and cool t-shirt and combine it with a fringed jacket, some cowboy boots and your trusty sunglasses: you will not complicate your life and you will look very trendy!
Mad Cool: The event that made Madrid a trend in Europe.
Last but not least, the Madcool. It is a national festival that is held in Madrid every year and has already been running for 5 editions. It is an event that brings together art, music, fashion and gastronomy in a single weekend. It is an event of smaller caliber and with a more affordable price compared to the previous ones but just as fun and appetizing. The festival has 6 stages, food trucks with a variety of food, a giant Ferris wheel and photocalls to live the experience to the fullest. Its tickets are around 200 euros and its capacity is 75.000 people This year 2021 has had to be postponed due to the health situation but there are already tickets on sale for the next edition, don't miss them!
The festival has received great international artists such as Green Day, Dua Lipa, The Arctic Monkeys, Rosalía and Bon Iver. Their 2021 lineup features singers like Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish.
It is celebrated during the month of July and is an event that promotes tourism to the capital and has quickly become one of the most recognized festivals in the country.
The looks most photographed from previous editions follow the aesthetics of Coachella and Rock In Rio. Marta Lozano is one of the many influencers who walked around the venue during the 2019 concerts, and with her, we have been able to see that animal print and sandals also have a place in the festivals. Take the riskiest dress you have out of your closet and combine it with sandals in the same shades to give a boho touch to your outfit. Finish it off with a bunch of beaded necklaces and you're ready to take thousands of photos with the festival Ferris wheel.
Although during the last year 2020 we have not been able to enjoy the festivals as we would have liked, the outfits of the previous editions have not ceased to inspire us for when we return to visit their stages. Get ready, the events are just around the corner!
