It’s almost the end of June and the UK festival season is well underway. The weather is dull and humid, and this weekend thousands will descend upon the legendary Glastonbury festival.
Revelers will be in for a treat this weekend with a stunning line up featuring Arcade Fire, Metallica, Kasabian, Jake Bug, Lana Del Rey, Dolly Parton, Rudamental, The 1975 and so many more. I think it is fair to say that Glastonbury caters for all musical tastes and that is before we even begin to look at other entertainment to be found there.
Sadly the Urban Surfer team can only look on with envy and green eyes as we will not be attending the festival this year, but I for one will no doubt fill the Sky Plus box with recorded highlights from weekend and find myself snug on the couch, not wet or soaked in mud, with, ‘the best view in the house.’
With festival season in mind, here are our hot festival picks available now from Urban Surfer:
1 – Vans Spicoli 4 Shades – Black Frosted – Keep the ‘off the wall’ style whilst looking on at the UK’s greatest stages this summer
2 – Neff Tie Dye Tank Top – Multi – An awesome vest for any occasion but if you can’t wear tie dye at a music festival then when can you?
3 – Animal Forestoke 3 Pack Socks – keep your feet fresh and dry (or as fresh and dry as you can) all weekend with a three pack of Animal socks
4 – Converse All Star Ox Shoes – Navy – Converse shoes, essential, need we say more?
5 – Enjoi Dis Hat Cap – Navy – Keep the sun (or rain) off your head with this quirky cool cap from one of our favourite brands
6 – Nooka Zub Zot Watch – Mike Spinner – Meeting your friends after Miss Del Rey has finished her set? Nooka provide the perfect time piece, durable and different; it’s a great conversation starter too…
7 – Alpinestars Torch Keychain – Finding your tent in the dark? No problem this teeny torch can be carried anywhere
8 – Sprayground Gammaxy Backpack – There is no backpack cooler right now than a Sprayground – Their designs are show stopping and functional to carry everything you need
9 – BawBags Psycho Boxers – We don’t need to remind you to pack clean undies do we?
There you have it – the Urban Surfer festival season essentials. We’re sorry we’ve posted this too late for the Glastonbury goers but with the rest of the Great British summer ahead, we just know they will come in handy. Don’t forget – there are music festivals held allover the UK for all kinds of music fans. Take a look here for a calendar’s worth of events in the UK, and go no further for the highlights of 2014 that are yet to come. We’re still excited for…
