Who doesn’t dig a festival? Nobody who knows what’s good for ‘em! A full-blown, round-the-clock shindig with truckloads of booze and and a free-flowing, loved-up feeling that anything is possible. What’s not to like?

Then there’s the fashion. Festivals are the best place to jettison your inhibitions and give conformity a big fat festive middle finger. There is no better place to rock men’s leggings! 

So what you are gonna wear to your next festival? Let’s boot down the barriers and help you express your inner wildman. Check out our guide on how to turn heads with men’s festival fashion clothing.

1. Colour For Days! With Meggings, Brighter Is Better

Men’s festival clothing ain’t about subtle grays and tasteful beige. It’s about a crazy off-the-chain mishmash of the brightest colors under the sun. There’s gonna be a ton of dudes wearing some insane shit. So, top the lot and unleash your inner psychedelic rainbow warrior with some cool-as-hell getup. 

The bigger, brighter and the bolder the better. Rules? Ha! Rules are for cub scouts and prison screws. Piss on the rules and go full-on kick-ass kaleidoscopic peacock, making sure all eyes are on you.

2. Stand Out With Shiny Metallic Leggings

Metallic silvers and golds are a surefire way to rock festival outfits for guys. Think a slick disco dance floor dude from a bygone era, or cyborg sent back from the future to party hearty. 

Stop the show with a pair of Jake the Snakes or 24 Carats. Pair with midnight black, accessorize (or should that be excessorize) with chains, studded leather, steampunk style and all kinds of wild and random trinkets.

3. Channel Your inner Wild Man With Animal Prints

Go native and get buck wild with some epic animal prints. Men’s festival clothing is all about getting primal, going beast mode and strutting your stuff in some killer outfits. This ain’t about streetwear. Denim don’t cut it on the D-floor. 

Regular rules are out the window, son. Now’s the time to cut loose and use your imagination to whip together some untamed flair. Trash it up and clash it up with a mix up of prints and colors for some seriously savage savannah-style getup.

4. Comfort is King

Whether you’re getting down with your bad self under the Cali sun, losing all sense of time and place at the Glasto Stone Circle, or rocking the stage at Trecco Bay, if you ain’t a comfy ass king, it don’t mean a thing.

You know those dirty old festival favorite jeans that your mom bought you back in the day? The ones with the crotch rot and the blood stained knees from nights of misadventure? It’s time to let go, my friend. Because free movement, second skin feel and breathability are gonna take you (and your plums!) to a comfier place. For lightweight comfort, Kapow Originals Meggings are where it’s at.

5. Wear Team Outfits With Your Mates

Sometimes, getting wild is a team effort. Kit out the tribe in some collaborative festival outfits for guys and turn every head in the area, whether you’re heading to the playa for the Burning of the Man or frolicking in a field in Europe.

From a team of starlords to a motley crew of metallic multicolored madmen on a mission of mayhem, there’s nothing like getting kitted out in some outlandish men’s festival clothing and getting up to all kinds of mischief with your band of merry men.

6. Keep Your Phone Safe With Pocket Leggings

Okay, so you’re getting wild and primal, and getting back to basics. But still, this ain’t the stone age. 21st century madmen still need to carry a few essentials.

Here’s a collection of men’s leggings with pockets that have not one, but two (count ‘em!) pockets – a secure bounce-proof phone pocket and a zippered stash pocket for, ahem, essential festive items. So, you can lose your inhibitions and nothing else.

7. Get Dusty At The Burning Of The Man

As the birthplace of Kapow, this one gets a special mention! Tutus, motorcycle boots, steampunk gas masks, viking helmets and not a pair of jeans in sight motherflippaaa! Burning is all about dressing like a badass barbarian at a post-apocalyptic party. Or a 22nd century cyborg with a penchant for dresses. Or whatever the hell you want!

Because, more than any other festival, this is where radical self expression takes center stage. Need some inspo? Feast your eyes on our comprehensive Burner Fashion Guide and get set for the wildest week of your life. For some more great outfit inspo, check out playa costume galleries here and here.
