Which Festival style tribe do you belong to?

Pro raver


Your motto is YOLO and you live to dance. You’ll be making your way around Europe this summer, first stopping off in Ibiza before popping over to Barcelona for Sonar and eventually ending the trip at Hideout in Croatia. You’re a trainer kind of gal because when it comes to raving until sunrise, comfort is key. You love an eye-popping print and lots of colour, and shorts paired with a bodysuit is your go-to festival look.

Bikini Babe

guide to festival tribes

You couldn’t decide between a beach holiday and a festival this summer so went for both.  You love to be near the sea and what better way to chill out on the sand than listening to some of your favourite beats at the same time. You can be found partying to the likes of Lily Allen and Chase & Status on the beach at Benicassim and you won’t go anywhere without a suitcase full of bikinis.

Wild at Heart Hippie

festival tribe guide

You’ve been coming to Glasto for years and worship the ground at Worthy Farm. You care more about the hedonistic opportunities the next 72 hours might bring than you do what you’re wearing (kinda), so it’s a boho mix up of dresses, headbands and layered jewellery.

So Cal Hipster

tribes for festivals

You’re a California girl at heart and love nothing more than the yearly pilgrimage to Coachella, your spiritual home.  You’ll spend the weekend keeping your eyes peeled for celebs (but you won’t make it obvious), Instagramming palm trees and drinking freshly pressed juices. You packed colour-coordinated two-pieces, lots of faded denim and a few crochet tops, and accessorized with oversized sunglasses, a cute chain strap quilted bag and your favourite red lipstick, obvs.

Rock ‘n’ Roller

festival tribes guide

You’re not only with the band; you’re in the band. You love music and will be found rocking out in the tents all weekend, keeping a look out for the next big thing. Your all-black uniform is non-negotiable but you do like to mix it up a little with heavy metal jewellery, studded details and a statement biker jacket. You already have your tickets to Download, Leeds Festival and Roskilde but will no doubt be looking for more.

 Glam Squad

festival tribes

As part of the Glam Squad you don’t really ‘do’ camping, preferring to wake up in a comfy bed with access to a shower. You won’t leave the house without a full face of make-up, but then who can blame you when it’s highly likely you might bump into Calvin Harris in the VIP area.  You’ll be wearing a pair of bum-skimming denim shorts with a cute lace crop top, floral headband and colourful wellies and spend the day rocking out to Olly Murs, Sam Smith and Ellie Goulding with your best gal pals.
