Summer is coming soon and who says summer, says festivals ! Have you already purchased your tickets and are looking forward to attending? U.S. too ! We are planning to go to Les Ardentes , maybe we will meet there? Besides, we have already spotted a pretty hat to avoid sunstroke and keep a great memory of the festival! We have also unearthed some original souvenirs for the Eurockéennes, Tomorrowland or Glastonbury...  

The Ardentes graphic bucket hat  

A Belgian festival created in 2006, Les Ardentes is THE hip-hop event of the year. More than 210,000 people attended last year, and this year promises to be a success again. Indeed, the program is likely to attract a large number of festival-goers: Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Aya Nakamura, SCH or even Booba.  

As we told you just before, we will be there! And we spotted, among all the super graphic official products of the Ardentes, a little bucket hat that catches our eye ! So, more than for the sunstroke, it's above all for the style that we want it!  

Since last year, the bucket hat has become the new fashion accessory . And this year, we have the choice: black or beige, and with two different logos, according to your desires. Our favorite is black with LA23 writing .  


The very aesthetic card game of Tomorrowland  

If there is a well-known festival in the world of electronic music , it is Tomorrowland. Created in 2005, the Belgian festival brings back more than 600,000 visitors from around 200 different countries every year. This year again, the tickets sold out at full speed. At the sight of the line-up , you will tell me "it's normal": Tiesto, The Chainsmokers, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki...  

 You can imagine that with such a scale, the festival provides a large number of official products to allow you to keep memories . Among the jewelry, headphones, clothes or even candles, we have selected the card game for you !  

For what ? Already, it is very worked : protective metal box, aesthetics developed with precise drawings and a golden border. In addition, you will always use a card game : whether in the evening with friends or with your grandmother to play belotte.  

The “old school” posters of the Eurockéennes  

Festival of eastern France, created in 1989, the Eurockéennes is the meeting of several musical styles , from rock to electronic, pop to reggae and many others... The festival offers this year big names such as: Indochine, Orelsan, Skrillex, Shaka Ponk or Apple.  

Like many other festivals, the Eurockéennes offer totebags, notebooks, bibs or even clothes bearing the image of the festival. Besides, on a very affordable budget (5€) , they offer you the possibility of buying very original posters of the different editions of the Eurockéennes.  

 From 1989 to 2023, you can acquire superb posters with the programming of each year . You can clearly see the evolution of the graphic style and you can completely please yourself or your friends by offering them the poster of their year of birth, for example!  

The Hellfest Drawn Puzzle  

How not to know the Hellfest? Since 2006, it has been the meeting place for metal fans ! With more than 400,000 festival-goers in 2022, it was one of the biggest festivals in France. This year, the program is still incredible: Kiss, Iron Maiden, SlipKnot, Machine Gun Kelly, Sum 41...  

The Hellfest is a unique experience and identity . And they didn't hesitate to play on it for their official products! In the shop, clothes, beach towels, bathrobes, bags, watches and clocks... But we have found better! A puzzle of the Hellfest map drawn comic version.  

Why is it original? A personalized puzzle according to the festival is unheard of! In addition to being useful, for young and old alike, it's a great souvenir to keep at home.  

The Rolling Loud Portugal tropical socks  

Rolling Loud, or the global hip-hop festival . Created in 2015, it now exists on almost all continents: North America, Europe, Oceania and Asia. We have focused on the one in Portugal and this year, the program is still very varied: Travis Scott, Playboi Carti, Meek Mill, Central Cee, Gucci Mane...  

Each of the festivals offers official products depending on the continent they are in: swim shorts for Miami, short-sleeved shirts for Thailand, hats for Toronto... And for Portugal, we have chosen high socks !  

Associated with white sneakers, high socks are the new streetwear accessories (“street style” in French). These socks are both a useful and original souvenir: what better than colorful flowers and the name of the festival to personalize your style this summer and tell your friends “I was there”!  

Glastonbury 50 Year Book  

Glastonbury is one of the biggest festivals in the world . Since 1970, it has offered pop and hippie music, but also dance, theatre, circus, comedy and even cabaret. This year, will be present : Lana Del Rey, Wizkid, Artic Monkeys, Elton John, Lizzo, Guns N' Roses...  

In addition to the traditional official products, the festival also offers committed products , in connection with various causes ( Oxfam, Greenpeace, Wateraid )… If you like the festival, we recommend the book of the 50 years of the festival instead.  

Completely retracing the history of the festival, it is the perfect souvenir to remember the different historical dates, review photos and past programming . We love it!  

There are far too many festivals in the world to recommend a souvenir to keep each time. We advise you to buy for yourself, or your loved ones, a souvenir that touches you and that allows you to remember your favorite festival all your life !
