Although festival season is primarily during the Summer, there are tons of fun winter festivals, such as Decadence, Snowglobe, and Countdown NYE. These winter music festivals tend to be a lot colder so you’ll want to plan your outfit accordingly. The perfect winter rave outfit is something that will keep you warm through the chilling cold and easy to adjust for when it’s hot in the crowd.

What to Wear to a Winter Music Festival


Stay warm and cozy in a cropped puffer! Puffer jackets are a very fashionable way of dealing with the cold temperatures. Some festivals have both indoor and outdoor stages, so try and find something that you can easily unzip or hold so you don’t overheat.

If you’re not as cold as you thought, or you just brought a jacket for the end of the night, many venues offer a coat check service. Check with the festival before-hand so you’re not stuck holding your jacket all night!

Platform Boots

You’re sure to rock the dance floor when you wear Platform Boots to the rave! Try to find some boots that can hold up through wet conditions like these furry boots that will keep you warm at cold events. If it’s been raining in your area, chances are you’ll come across puddles or surprise wet spots in the grass. Nothing is worse than standing in a pair of soaking wet socks for hours.
