From fanny pack to flask: these are the essentials.

Fact: Nothing comes close to a killer music festival.   The art, the drinking, the dancing – all of it.  And you and your squad want to look good while doing it, because these days, music festivals are about being seen.  Below, we’ve listed five next-level accessories that will elevate your music festival experience and have people turning heads.

Warby Parker Barkley Sunglasses

At any music festival, you’re going to be outside – a lot. And nothing says “hipster cool” like a good pair of shades. Warby Parker’s Barkley sunglasses come in five distinct fades, and like a tailored suit or little black dress, they look dope on everyone. As with all of Warby Parker’s gear, Barkleys are durable, anti-scratch, and offer 100% UV protection. Accept no exceptions. $150

Ember and Ash Dragon Scale Nomad Hood

A music festival ain’t all sunshine and bikinis. Sometimes it gets cold.  Or damp.  And it’s in these moments when any festivalgoer needs a gorgeous hood – for real. Enter Ember and Ash’s Dragon Scale Nomad Hood. Meant to wrap around your neck like a scarf, this Etsy favourite headpiece is portable comfort, perfect for unexpected volleys from Mother Nature, or the next Lord of the RIngs covnention. $60

Fonesalesman QiStone+ Portable Wireless Charger

There aren’t a lot of power outlets lying around music festivals, so if you want to keep your Instagram feed flowing, you need a charger. And the Fonsalesman QiStone+ is just plain sick. Designed to look like – yes – a stone, the QiStone+ can charge two devices (phones, speakers, cameras, etc.) at once, with or without a wire. This charger will keep you topped up all day long and snugly fits in your pocket or wallet. $80

Stone Cask’s Original Shot Flask

Music festivals are about getting turnt up.  And drinking laws be damned, a sexy flask is meant to be shown off.  Stone Cask’s Original Shot Flask has collapsible 2oz shot glass built within it.  And like a boss, the flask’s sleek, stainless steel frame is wrapped in high-quality leather.   Let’s be honest: imbiding always makes things more fun, and the Original Shot Flask is a stylish way to go about it. $40
