We love Rock’n’Roll: sunglasses for rock festivals
You want to rock out to drums and guitar riffs? Then you can probably be found at festivals like Download. Alongside the obligatory boots and leather jacket, the ideal sunglasses for a rock festival will have a black frame made out of either plastic or metal, usually with super cool dark lenses. As the glasses tend to be darker, you might want to go for a more striking style of frame, such as cut outs or half-rim sunglasses.
Sunblock don’t stop: sunglasses for hip hop festivals
Hip hop festivals like Boom Bap are now huge all over Europe. The in-look here involves a cool yet casual style: a baggy shirt with a statement on it, trainers that allow you to dance through the night, a baseball cap to keep the sun off your head. Various sunglasses provide the perfect finishing touch. Monoshades can be seen both up on stage and among the crowd. They stand out due to their bold and unusual design. Meanwhile cool black Wayfarers never go out of fashion. Aviator style sunglasses with a golden frame are also ideal for adding a touch of bling.
Electronic beats: sunglasses for electro festivals
At electro festivals like Creamfields the buzzword is colour, with in-your-face neon tones adorning shoes, shirts, caps and of course sunglasses. Not only colourful frames, but also colourful mirrored lenses are a perfect expression of a more extravagant style. Both plastic and metal frames look great when you’re dancing to electronic beats.
If you usually wear glasses, then obviously you don’t want to have to swap them for a pair of sunglasses that may look cool but leave you dancing in the dark due to poor vision. One option is to wear contact lenses with your shades. The alternative is to choose from our great range of prescription sunglasses - on the left side of the screen just use the “prescription-ready” filter option.
