    Default Clothing

    What kind of clothing is recommended to wear to this festival? I've only been to Bonnaroo and for some reason I keep getting this impression that one has to almost "dress to impress" at this festival. Am I wrong?
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Comfortable shoes, shorts, a hoodie/sweater if it get's cold at night.

    Dress to impress if that's your thing, but that's only important to celebs, their friends, fashion companies who surround the festival with parties and pop-up shops, fashionistas who show up late just to see the last three bands on the bill, and those who are otherwise confused as to what Coachella actually is.

    There's not a dress code, so it doesn't really matter what you have seen in photos that publications have chosen to show you. Bring comfortable shoes and plan on it being hot, but pack some warm clothes just in case it's not.

    Comfort is key. Especially for footwear. Light tanks and shorts or cropped leggings for day with a light hoodie for the evening. Sundresses are great too. Dressing to impress will likely lead to chafing and/or blisters.

    The only thing I notice in this picture is how terrible the Weekend 2 "Grass" is.

    The girl in the little booty heels is hiding the tears being caused by her blisters behind her big ass shades.

    Wear what you'll find comfortable. If you're trying to "dress to impress", try going to a club instead of Coachella. Nobody except the incredibly shallow will give a shit what you wear to Coachella or judge you for it. Unless it's an obnoxious costume that gets in everyone's way, then they'll judge the HELL out of you.

    Went to Bonnaroo last year for the first time. I don't think there's really much of a difference from Coachella. Maybe slightly more people "dressed up" at Coachella, but a huge majority will just wear what's comfortable.

    I recommend hats during the day (the sun can be killer), comfortable tennis shoes of some sort (feel may get stepped on during dancing or will be covered with dust if you wear sandals), and light clothes. I like to wear like layers that cover my shoulders so they don't burn. Make sure to bring a sweatshirt and some warm clothes for the evening. It can get cold when the sun goes down!

    Those boots look terribly fucking uncomfortable and how is she wearing pants (even those light ones) in 100+ degree weather, I have no idea.

    A simple chambray shirt was a lifesaver item for me last year. Light enough to wear over a tank and not suffocate (and keeps you warm-ish if it's cool out), but you can also carry it/stow in your bag if it gets incredibly hot.

    I wear long pants every year, it's not that hard. It helps if you've lived the last 20 years of your life in the eastern valleys of San Diego though, where triple digits is normal in the summer. You get used to it.
