t’s almost time for the big one on every festival goers calendar, Glastonbury 2022. After two years of cancellations the UK’s most iconic festival makes its long awaited return. Soon enough you’ll be in heated debates with your friends, carefully selecting which artists you’ll be seeing with more attention to detail than ever before.
Here at HUNGER, we’re taking a look at some of this summer’s essential pieces for you to rock at your festival of choice. If you’ve missed out on Glastonbury this year, not to worry, there’s still plenty of huge festivals taking place this year to show off your new garms…
Dr Marten’s have always been a staple of any festival and in recent years their sandals have seen a lot of love across the summer fields of Britain. But if you want to go even louder then why not go for the new quad platform sole. Not to mention, it’ll give you that extra boost you need when peering over the endless crowds in front of you.
It’s easier to lose your phone at a festival than anywhere else, probably. As well as a great chance of dropping your phone as well. Luckily for you, this neat little accessory negates both of those possibilities. The phone necklace does what it says on the tin, it’s a phone case with a necklace attached. Available in a variety of colours and perfectly practical for festival life, it’s definitely one to think about if you’re incredibly clumsy.
Looking for something with a higher price point? Something that’ll keep you warm in the unpredictable British summer time? Look no further than this sustainably made Gilet. Finished with a festival-ready tie-dye pattern, it’s one for all weathers and brings a bit of luxury to those boggy fields.
If you want something simple yet eccentric this Boiler Room tee is the perfect look. Featuring the classic Boiler Room logo alongside a bright orange acid drip dye you’ll be turning heads at every opportunity.
Arguably, there’s no better feeling than pulling on a fresh pair of brand new socks in the morning at a festival. HADAS may have a slightly higher price point than that throwaway pack of 5 you buy just for the festival but that extra level of luxury is most certainly worth it. With a variety of colours these socks allow you the freedom to mix and match with whatever multicoloured ensemble you choose for the day.
With the popularity of cargo pants over the last couple of years it was obvious that the trend would eventually transition into shorts/skirts. Turns out cargo skirts work pretty well in a festival environment. There’s endless space to hold your phone, makeup and any drinks you try to sneak into the arena (don’t blame us if you get caught). Keeping with the festival theme this skirt also features a bright acid wash to make sure you stand out amongst the rest.
If you’re heading to a slightly cleaner festival, if that’s possible in the UK, then this lightweight shirt could do the trick. Featuring two graphic panels it has a bit more personality than your standard white shirt without going too over the top. If you want sleek and simple then this is a festival wardrobe essential. Just be extra careful with your drinks…
