10 Outfit Must-Haves For Ultra 2018

| February 23, 2018

Miami's Big 20th Celebration is one month away and it's time to start preparing for what will probably be the biggest EDM festival this year.

Ultra is known for being extravagant and over-the-top, and there is no question that the Miami festival will be pulling out all the stops for it's big 20th anniversary. Miami Music Week is an entire week long with multiple events too, so you'll need to bring all those rave outfit essentials. 

We want you to have the time of your life at UMF 2018, so we've compiled a list of 10 must-have's for this year's edition of Ultra.

Ranging from eyewear to accessories and clothing, this is your comprehensive packing guide for Ultra. 



1. Black Kaleidoscope Glasses


There are many rave staples out there, but you can never go wrong with our best selling Black Kaleidoscope Glasses. These glasses pack all of the fractured visuals of kaleidoscope lenses without the bulk of goggles. Perfect for guys and girls, these glasses match every face shape and will provide mind-melting visuals. These lightweight glasses provide the best of both worlds and will transform the lights and lasers at Ultra into something beyond your imagination. See light shows in an entirely new way with a pair of Black Kaleidoscope Glasses. 




2. Haunting My Dreams Tank Top


A throwback to the golden 90's, our Haunting My Dreams tank top is a nostalgic design for any Pokemon fan. This tank top is at once artsy and abstract, a perfect addition to any raver wardrobe. Proudly rep your love for Pokemon at Ultra, I guarantee you'll find other like-minded ravers who love Pokemon just as much. And the simple monochromatic color scheme elevates this artsy shirt into an elegant abstract piece.



3. Holographic Disco Hydration Pack


Hydration is important no matter where you are, but especially at Ultra, it is essential to stay hydrated. A hydration backpack is the easiest way to keep your body cool and hydrated without having to leave the crowd to find a water station. The Holographic Disco Hydration Backpack features a glitzy and glamorous design that fits right into the Ultra vibe. Click HERE to read up on why hydration packs are so important at festivals! 



4. Unicorn Spew Crop Top


Fun, colorful and wonderfully weird, our Unicorn Spew design is one of our bestsellers. The crop design will keep you cool during that warm Miami weekend spent dancing the day away under the sun. The bright colors and quirky design are perfect for a rave and will fit in with the colorful vibe of Ultra. Check out this awesome design also available in a sweatshirt, t-shirt, pullover hoodie and a tank top



5. Luminescence Sunglasses



Our Luminescence Sunglasses perform double duty by protecting your eyes from Miami's brilliant sunlight during the day and lighting up the dark with luminescent frames at night. With a long lasting battery and a variety of colors, these sunglasses are a must-have for Ultra and can be worn day and night all festival long. 



6. Dreamstate Weekend Shorts


There's no denying that Miami is hot and when you're spending all your time outdoors with other ravers, dancing the day away, you want to make sure that you dress cool. Our Dreamstate Weekend Shorts brings one of our trippiest designs into a cool and comfortable shorts design. The monochromatic palette and  the fractal designs make these shorts a wonderfully complex addition to your Ultra wardrobe. 



7. Pastel Nebula Plush Blanket


Blankets are always a good thing to bring to festivals, and the Pastel Nebula Blanket provides a soft and comfy place to sit and rest between sets. Spread out on the grass or use for shade, blankets are a must-have at festivals. With its soft colors and artsy design, the Pastel Nebula Blanket will draw eyes from all over Ultra no matter where you sit to rest.  



8. Barbed Wire Scrunch Back Shorts


These fan-favorite booty shorts are perfect for your next rave. Utilizing a simple black design with gold accents, these shorts will match any top or accessories that you pair with them. Perfect for dancing the night away, these shorts will keep you cool and comfortable. The glitzy look fits in with the sleek Miami vibe and you'll be the envy of the festival in these bestselling shorts. 



9. LED Poi Balls- 9 Mode


Flow art is an integral part of the EDM community, and we provide some great options for all light show artists out there. Our 9-Mode LED Poi Balls are one of our favorites for poi artists, providing different modes to switch between during a show. When the lights go down at Ultra, your poi balls will light up the night and leave lasting impressions on all those lucky enough to get a show from you. These poi are lightweight, sturdy and will melt faces all night long. 



10. Dazzling Dimension Bandanna 


Personally, my festival must-have is a bandanna. These useful accessories do everything from hiding your bass face during an Excision set (guilty), to keeping the sweat out of your eyes. Especially in sweltering Miami, a bandanna will be a must-have and this celestial bandanna features one of our most popular designs: Dazzling Dimensions. This spacey design will add a pop of color to your outfit and will perform double duty keeping you clean and covered.
