We hear you’re going to Glastonbury and trying to figure out what to wear… well you’ve come to just the right place, mate! Glastonbury is a cultural phenomenon full of music and mud, where that spirit of festival adventure really comes to life. With 86 stages from the hidden corners of the Shangri-La to the iconic Pyramid Stage, the sprawling countryside-turned-playground of sound beckons adventurers from far and wide. When it comes to fashion, you’ll see Glastonbury festival outfits that mirror the eclectic nature of the crowd, so you’ll want to wear something that feels most true to you! Of course, Glastonbury fashion is also, in part, defined by the unique landscape of the location itself (along with the elements it brings).

Here we’ve laid out our best tips on styling your Glastonbury outfit. By understanding how to come prepared while living out your festival fashion dreams, this guide will give you the tools to get the most out of the magical weekend. Let’s dive in!

Dress for the Weather… Any Weather!

Glasto is notorious for its unpredictable weather. If you’ve been, you may have learned this the hard way. The forecast could make you believe you'll be basking in the sunshine, and halfway through day one, you're suddenly dancing in a downpour—which can totally be part of the fun!! That is if you’re ready for it. It's essential to come prepared for anything Mother Nature might throw your way. Let’s break it down by each element you wanna be prepared for.


No Glastonbury festival outfit is complete without a trusty pair of wellies and a sleek rain jacket or poncho. Luckily you’re finding this guide in the same place where you can tick some of those boxes without sacrificing your rad festival style. We've got you covered with our Rainy Festival Outfits collection and in particular, our fan-favorite shiny rain jackets that'll have you feeling like a fashion icon (cause you are one) even when you're braving the elements.

And remember, even if the forecast calls for clear skies, be ready for mud—lots of it. ‘Cause let’s be honest, if we catch a clear weekend, it was probably raining all week before. Keep those wellies handy and opt for mid-thigh to cropped-length rave jackets to avoid getting thrashed in the mud. This isn’t the festival for maxi jackets, skirts, or kimonos.

Warm Weather

Don't let the British weather fool you; Glasto can also be surprisingly warm and sunny. Pack your sunglasses and sunscreen. And don't forget to wear base layers you can strip down to for when the sun decides to shine down, or you find yourself in the heat of the crowds. This Warm Weather Festival Outfit collection is a great place to browse those base layers for hotter moments.

Chilly Nights/Transitions

As the sun sets and the temperature drops, be sure to have a real jacket on hand. Crowded dance floors will certainly keep you warm for a time, but trust us; you'll thank us later when you're still cozy and warm while trekking between stages.

Glastonbury Fashion

When it comes to fashion at Glastonbury, anything goes. Think free-spirited and fun. From casual chic to outrageous costumes, it’s a great chance to let your creativity run wild. With that in mind, here are a few style notes for creating your Glastonbury festival outfit.

Keepin’ It Casual

Given the size (quantity of people in attendance), Glastonbury fashion isn’t gonna be as fancy as something like Secret Garden Party. Even with its more casual approach, the festival is still the perfect opportunity to showcase your unique style. Embrace the laid-back vibe with casual rave outfits and opt for comfortable yet stylish ensembles that'll take you from day to night with ease.

Anything Goes

You will see people dressed in literally everything from rave bikinis to bathrobes which makes your Glastonbury outfit the perfect space to flex your unique music festival outfits.


Sometimes restrictions can be our greatest inspiration. Let the weather inspire your Glastonbury fashion! Try a really cool men’s festival jacket or a women’s festival jacket. And considering you might be covering up, go all out with the festival accessories. Go for cool hats, face jewelry, glitter, and embellishments. This will help make your Glastonbury outfit feel dressed up even when not much of your outfit is showing.

Navigating the Glastonbury Wonderland

With its vast grounds and endless attractions, Glastonbury can be a bit of a maze to navigate. There are a few things you can consider in your Glastonbury festival outfit to help you make the most of your festival experience.

Pack Smart: Have Essentials on Hand

may not make it back to your tent during the day, so a backpack or festival bag stocked with essentials like layers, water bottles, and personal items is crucial. These festival bags were designed specifically for both the practical and stylistic needs of music festival spaces. And don’t forget LED lights and a headlamp so you can find your friends in the crowd and your tent when the sun and the stage lights go down.

Choose Good Shoes!

Another thing about all that ground you’ll be covering in a day…your Glastonbury outfit is incomplete without the right pair of shoes! Leave the wedges and new shoes at home and opt for wellies and some comfortable kicks that can handle a day of dancing and exploring in the mud. We definitely recommend packing some comfy insoles for extra support too.

Layering Through the Day

We’ll say it again for the people in the back: the weather is going to be unpredictable! With temperatures fluctuating throughout the day, layering is your best friend. Start with a lightweight base and add on with festival layers as needed to stay comfortable from sunrise to sunset.

And there you have it—your ultimate guide to Glastonbury fashion! Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and embrace the spirit of adventure. Let that creativity shine! The festival space will totally embrace it. And if you're looking for more rave fashion inspiration, be sure to check out our "Shop by Event" page.
