Rock Out with These Concert and Festival-Goer Dream Designs

Music-inspired designs

Music lovers rejoice! Summer—and music festival season—is well underway. Finally, all the bands you’ve been following on social, listening to on repeat, and dreaming up ways to see are touring, which means they might stop in your city. Perhaps you’re planning to travel to a fest you’ve saved up for or grabbed tickets to concerts around town. Either way, summer is the best time to see live music; it’s the season that brings out both big, mainstream names and buzz-worthy indie acts on the cutting-edge of their genre.     

To have the best live music experience possible, decide what to wear and pack in advance, planning ahead for what to expect based on the show, or shows, you’re seeing. Unless the concert’s inside at dingy dive bar, you need to pack for weather. Scorching sun, pouring rain, relentless wind or chilly night air are all possibilities that will make enjoying your favorite band difficult. Wear sleeveless tanks or lightweight tees with a zip-up hoodie or sweatshirt for when the sun sets. Sport comfortable shoes that can handle plenty of walking and lots of standing. Whether you’ve got tickets to a three-day extravaganza or plan to see a concert after work in the glorious summer dusk, pack light. Use a drawstring or tote bag to carry your water bottle (hydrate, people). Wear sunglasses, a hat, and, for daytime or early evening shows, sunscreen.      

Get in the spirit to see summer shows by rocking witty, cool designs infused with good vibes. You’ve got plenty of your favorite band’s tees, so add some new favorite music-inspired designs to your wardrobe for this season’s show lineup.
