Bonnaroo Full Guide Festival Outfits Ideas

Bonnaroo belongs to those Festivals where you can wear about everything imaginable, that being said, this guide is here to give you the best outfits inspirations and the best tips so you “roole” this festival, see what we did here 😉

Bonnaroo day and night outfits

The best approach for Bonnaroo outfits is to have in mind the temperature fluctuation between day (can go up to 100 degrees) and night (can go down to 60 degrees). To be fully prepared for the occasion, we recommend the below:

Outfits for women (daytime):

Outfits for women (nighttime):

Outfits for men (daytime):

Outfits for men (nighttime):

All those links are some good examples that have been hand-picked for you (you will only find products that are 4 stars and above).

The list above is to give you a quick start on how to think your outfits through and get great examples. Now, there is no particular dress code at Bonnaroo, people have different styles like the ones you will find below from casual to ravey to chic or sporty.

Bonnaroo outfits tips

All those tips below are 101 festivals but we like to give those reminders to make sure everyone has the best experience possible.

Keep it light, you will get hot

Bonnaroo Music Festival takes place in the middle of June in Manchester Tennessee. Even if the weather is not so good you will get hot and we are not even including all the jumping and dancing that could take place.

So we recommend you to think as a minimalist would :).

Grap and carry only the necessary things and use your backpack.

One thing that we have done as a group is to have a fairly big backpack that will be passed on from person to person, yes one individual will carry a tad heavy but the rest will be free.

Or each person has his or her own backpack and roll with it.

We don’t recommend carrying from the start your night gear and outfits in your backpack, leave them in your tent or your car, and come back to it when the sun goes down.

Water-friendly fabric is a good option

Besides the fact that you will sweat, Bonnaroo has its famous mushroom fountain that allows people to go under, get wet, and cool down.

This is why a lot of people use their bathing suits as their outfit:

  • for the ladies they usually have bathing suit top and they either go with their shorts or alike or simply their bathing suit bottom
  • guys just remove their t-shirt (or not) and go like this with their board shorts and flip-flops

That way, when it gets really hot you can easily cool down by just dropping your backpack getting wet, and getting back to activities or the music!

You might need to use sunscreen

Sunburns are a real thing, especially when you get them on the first day and you have to endure the sun for two more days with sensitive skin.

If you wear a casual outfit no biggie, you can keep your sunscreen in your bag and put it on as soon as you feel you need it.

But people with complex outfits, beware, as if you decide to put some on, we had instances where you could have to get almost naked to apply your sunscreen correctly.

You will have to go to the toilet

We recommend avoiding all clothing that is a bit long that could touch the ground or the toilet floor like long dresses, long fringes, and outfits that are too difficult to remove so you can easily and properly go to the bathroom.

It might be obvious but people have told us festival bathroom stories with outfits that were too long that sounded like pure nightmares…

Pro-tip for the ladies: if you do want to wear long bottoms outfits or that you want to avoid germs, the Shewee is a great alternative as it gives women the ability to pee standing up.

Toilet Bonus tip: in every article that we posted about toilets we recommend baby wipes as they are life saviors in festivals.

You will walk, dance and stand a lot

You will have to bring the most comfort possible to your feet.

Now, people always debate whether to wear flip-flops or sneakers to festivals. Well, we did the pros and cons for you below, so you know what to do.

Flip-flops vs sneakers.

Flip-flops pros:

  • they are almost always the best option, your feet will not get all sweaty
  • they are water-friendly you can go to the mushroom fountain with or without them as they are easily removable.

Flip-flops cons:

  • if it rains, even just one hour they will become your worst enemy with all the mud and slippery ground.
  • you can’t really dance or jump if the area you are in is too crowded, you could lose them and people (it does happen) can step on your unprotected feet

Sneakers pros:

  • For light rain it is way better than flip-flops (if it rains too much you will need boots, we recommend checking a bit the weather beforehand)
  • Your feet are somewhat protected from people that could step on them
  • You have free movement with your feet, you can jump and dance and never worry about losing them
  • It will keep your feet warm at night

Sneakers cons:

  • Not ideal if it gets really hot
  • With all the walking and dancing you could get blisters

So, you guessed it, the best option is to bring both, but now you know what will work best depending on the weather or what you intend to do.
