What to pack:
Got tickets for a concert weekend? It’s amazing how little space one great maxi dress takes up in a tote bag, particularly for the fashion punch your favorite frock will deliver. We say, start your festival mix there and build a few pieces around it for the ultimate outfit mashup, minus the need for a suitcase. A fringe bag is key, as are sandals. This season, you certainly can’t go wrong with round shades. Toss in a tee (or buy one at the show), a pair of destructed shorts and a denim jacket and you’re good to go.
Who to see:
Social media darling Lana Del Rey (aka Elizabeth Woodridge Grant) relentlessly entertains. Even when she flounders musically onstage her wild voice, narrative lyrics and cinematic antics make her a wonderfully hot mess to watch. We’re also amped to see Lorde, Warpaint and Haim.
What to pack:
Scored a VIP pass to a music fest? Good news. No need to think about what to grab from your drawers and stash in your duffel bag. We’ve figured it out for you. A hoodie. Gray jeans. A baseball hat, sunglasses and sneaks. And one last thing: a limited-edition Johnny Cash tee for backstage cred, not to mention, the new lost album “Out Among the Stars” is a solid concession-stand conversation starter.
Where to go:
Brooklyn-based Blood Orange (aka Dev Hynes) sounds like Terence D’Arby on Pop Rocks with a Michael Jackson-meets-Purple Rain presence. It’s hard to stay still watching Dev perform so prepare to boogie. We’re also stoked to see Queens of the Stone Age, Ty Segall and Beck.Read the next article
