Fashion is a huge factor of the music festival experience. Surprisingly, music festival fashion hasn't changed too much throughout the years.
Given that fashion has, in fact, been modernized, the average middle class person wears clothing to modern festivals similar to that of the hippie days.
Some popular clothing choices are bathing suits, denim, headbands, sunglasses and hats.
European fashion is very similar to American fashion. However, most Europeans wear rain boots to their festivals, even if it's not raining.
Music Festivals: a series of performances at a particular place and inspired by a unifying theme, such as national music, modern music etc.

Festival,
held in Roskilde, Denmark, is the largest in Denmark. Frida has been here and says that when she thinks of festivals, she thinks of camping and rain boots.
