If music festivals are as important a part of your summer as iced coffees and exposed toes, you'll know that each one has its own particular flavor and, thusly, dress code. Coachella is all good-looks and manicured-vibes (requisite attire: flower crowns and on-trend crop tops). SXSW is where DIY reigns supreme (cut-off black jean shorts with ankle boots). As for Bonnaroo? With no real hotels around, show-goers are also de facto campers, which provides a whole extra element of realness to the mix. Clothing has to be practical, durable, and cool, too, but at this festival, the toned-down Tennessee crowd does not dress just for the street-style cameras to snap 'em. Ahead, 26 outfits that remixed working it with roughing it and made beautiful music.
