We’re basically smack dab in the middle of music festival season right now. Ultra and Coachella already happened, but there’s still Bonnaroo, Glastonbury (for all you international peeps) and this weekend’s Governors Ball. In case you forgot what went down last year at this event, here’s a refresher: Tropical Storm Andrea decided to ambush New York City with heavy rain and flash-flood warnings. The weather was so bad Friday night that headlining acts Kings of Leon and Pretty Lights had to cancel their closing sets “due to high winds and unsafe stage conditions,” a statement from the festival said. But just like life, the beat goes on, and the rain-soaked venue didn’t stop concertgoers from seeing their favorite performers the rest of the weekend. They just threw on denim cutoffs and rain boots to fight off the insane mud on Randalls Island.
We know the bad weather is kind of what makes these 3-day festivals, but we still think you should be prepared. The forecast might not predict wet weather now, but who knows what can change in the next few days. Plus, even if you’re not going to see Outkast or Disclosure this weekend, you should still get yourself a good pair of rain boots and cutoffs for any festival you might be hitting up this summer. Celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Moss have been doing it for years, and now it’s your turn. Click the slideshow to see our picks!
