Coachella just kicked off music festival season, which means ironic teepees, face paint, and other ridiculous ripoffs of Native American culture abound. Take, for example, this feathered headdress, which is currently being sold by Free People for $438. Cultural appropriation issues aside, how annoying would it be to stand behind someone wearing this during a show? Umm, ma’am? You’re totally blocking my view of Bon Iver. [Free People]

In Defense Of Lilith Fair

In 1997, you couldn’t have paid me to go to Lilith Fair. Sarah McLachlan, Paula Cole, the Indigo Girls—all undeniably talented, but not even slightly to my taste. What was up with all the emo singer/songwriters? And, ugh, were they really using an image of a naked woman with a flower growing out of her head as their logo? No, that summer I was too excited to see Hole, Devo, and Beck at Lollapalooza to ever give the hippie dippiness of Lilith Fair a chance. Ditto for every summer until the concept of the all-female music festival fizzled out in 1999.

But then this year, Sarah McLachlan announced a rebooted Lilith Fair. The concept was the same but the lineup was truly off the hook, spanning a huge number of genres, ages, tastes, and aesthetics. For the top 40 lover, there’s Rihanna and Ke$ha. For indie rockers, there’s the Gossip, Metric, and Tegan and Sara. On the R&B tip, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, and Erykah Badu. Not to mention my personal ’80s favorite—The Bangles. Keep reading »

Hunter Makes Wellington Boots For The Hard-Core Festival-Goer

Wellington boots are such popular footwear for summer music festivals, like Bonnaroo in Tennessee and Glastonbury in England where mud and dirt abound, that Hunter decided to create a special “Festival” take on the basic rubber boot. These badass wellies, which feature crocodile-stamped panels and silver-tone rivets, resemble tough-looking motorcycle boots. In our opinion, these $200+ rubber rain boots would make wearers look like they’re trying too hard, but maybe super fashion-conscious concert-goers will go for them.

    Slideshow: Musical Mayem At The Glastonbury Festival

    Ahh, Glastonbury, the ultimate U.K. musical festival where regular folk hobnob with Kate Moss and risk getting punched in the face by Amy Winehouse. How we wish we could have gone and hung out this past weekend, checking out performances by everyone from Duffy to Jay-Z. Unforch, we will have to settle for the next best thing…the slideshow after the jump. Tally-ho! Keep reading »
