    Aussie Summer Festivals Round Up

    The much anticipated Australian summer festivals are now in full swing and the 2017-2018 festival season is bigger and better than ever before. Australia has welcomed some of Europe’s finest to our shores with The Road To Ultra on it’s way, while local promoters are setting global trends in the electronic music scene with festivals such as Days Like This 2018 releasing a killer line up of international acts including the Black Madonna (someone Aussie’s have been long awaiting) and the likes of Electric Garden Festival, Let Them Eat Cake, Subsonic Music Festival and Strawberry Fields Festival showcasing some of Australia’s best local acts against the worlds finest underground artists.

    With so many events to add to your Australia summer festival calendars it’s pretty hard to choose where to invest your time and hard earned dollars so we’ve pulled together our favourite round up based on how sick there promo videos and after movies are. Oh, and of course, along with festivals comes a natural need for some new garms and handy tech to show off to your pals back home over instagram!

    Aussie Summer Festival Fashion Guide

    Summer + festivals = new festival gear. With a heap of new festivals in the diary, it's super important to make sure you have a unique look, the handy kit, new tech and most of all, that you're confident and comfortable for the duration of the season. We've decided to take a look at what you guys have been up to around the world and pull together a top of list of must have items for the 2017-18 Australian summer festival season.

    The Original Turkish Towels

    You may well have started seeing these appear more and more at festivals and around Beaches and Parks across Australia over the last few years and there's good reason. Turkish towels are awesome. They're light weight, easy to carry and thanks to The Original Turkish Towel company, you can get them in a selection of sizes and trendy designs that will be a perfect accessory for your festival kit. 

    How ethical are your festival sunglasses?

    Sick of your Ray Bans? It's time for a new look and with growing trends around ethical events, going green, we salute the guys from Bird Sunglasses who have launched a super cool sunglasses brand that has strong ties in supporting ethical projects in Africa.

    And for the ladies looking to make a statement...

    We're loving big and bold statements around festival season and if you've been working hard on getting fighting fit for the summer season then we say, flaunt it!

    And finally, bring on the glitter!

    Festivals are much more than a day of music, it's about lifestyle and experience. It's a time to let loose, be free and become part of a community who have an appreciation for life.
