Here's What You'll Need If You're Heading to Bonnaroo
Festival season is here! Kick off the celebration with Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee from June 8 to 11. We’ve put together a list of our festival favorites that will keep you looking stylish, without sacrificing comfort. Expect to be on your feet and doing lots of walking at music festivals so comfortable shoes are key. Plan on bringing at least two options, and break them in before you head to Tennessee. You'll also want to be prepared for changes in the weather. Pack a sweater for when it gets cold and sunglasses for when the sun is blaring. Don't forget a raincoat for any unexpected showers. (It happens.) Bring a bag with you so you can easily carry layers when you aren’t using them. Yes, you will be outside in the summer heat, but you don’t have to give up style. Just be smart about your festival attire and you’ll have a great time. See you in Tennessee!
