9) Oscar the Nug Unisex Hoodie

Oscar the Nug Unisex Hoodie

One of the top rules of shows and festivals is simple: don't be a grouch. In light of that guideline, we are proud to present a superior alternative: Oscar the Nug. The lovable Sesame Street character is depicted here as a luscious nugget of cannabis, which most people would agree makes you anything but a grouch. 

Oscar is wearing sunglasses, and their reflection shows a tropical, pink, and blue sunset with money raining down. You know, your typical situation at a music festival. If you often find yourself muttering phrases like “me want wubs” or “me want 128 bpm” then this hoodie is undoubtedly for you.

A psychedelic take on the popular cat from Alice in Wonderland, this hoodie features intricate designs that take on a bevy of colors from pink, purple, and blue, to yellow, green, and everything in between. 

The Cheshire cat's mischievous grin represents the childlike joy that many find at their favorite shows and festivals. This hoodie is the perfect piece for someone who wants to get noticed and start conversations with their fellow ravers.

If you have ever watched the popular TV show 'Hey Arnold' then you have probably developed an affinity for Arnold's best friend Gerald. 'Chill G' may be the most popular example of the revered high-top fade haircut in a cartoon. 

Gerald is always bringing positive vibes, and wearing this outstanding hoodie dress means that you will too! A stunningly swirly pink and blue design adorns this piece from top to bottom, meaning that you will be sending out all the right vibes at your next show.

6) Imaginary Friend Unisex Zip-Up Hoodie

Imaginary Friend Unisex Zip-Up Hoodie

Representing one half of a famous comic strip duo, “Hobbes” the tiger is another beloved character for an entire generation. This large, pensive cat is seen here deep in thought, appearing in blue over a yellow background. 

While some ravers are all about partying nonstop, others are inclined to step back and take it all in thoughtfully. If that applies to you – or if you can appreciate the importance of an imaginary friend – then you should secure this zip-up hoodie today.

5) Meditating Rafiki Unisex Hoodie

Meditating Rafiki Unisex Hoodie

Every experienced raver understands the circle of life as a fan in the EDM scene. Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed newbies will rush to the rail and go crazy. However, with experience comes chill wisdom that is embodied quite well by The Lion King's famous zen master Rafiki. 

Sometimes, all you need to have life-changing fun is simply finding your own personal space bubble and locking in, as Rafiki is here on this hoodie. Varying shades of green provide the backdrop for this chill mandrill, who only has one instruction to his fellow ravers: Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe.

4) Dragons Unisex Hoodie

Dragons Unisex Hoodie

This hoodie represents the intersection between mystic lore and visually stunning art. Dragons from the uber-popular show Game of Thrones circle over the backdrop of a dark purple sky. Dark silhouettes of the trees below are emphasized with white flecks that appear to be stars.

One need not be a GoT connoisseur to appreciate the beauty of this piece. However, being a fan of the show yields an even greater appreciation of the story behind the artwork. No matter where you fall on that spectrum, this hoodie is a must-have.

3) Futurama Unisex Hoodie

Futurama Unisex Hoodie

Next up on iEDM's extensive list of pop culture-inspired apparel is the Futurama Unisex Hoodie. A green spaceship is seen flying over a futuristic city, with bright sunlight peeking out from behind the vessel. 

Up above, stars can be seen dotting the sky, which is a cosmic blend of red, blue, and orange. Not to gatekeep clothing styles based on what styles of music you like, but if you appreciate sub-genres like Future House and Future Rave, then it is a no-brainer that the Futurama hoodie should be in your wardrobe.

1 Up Unisex Zip Up Hoodie

If you are looking for a zip-up hoodie that will turn you into a fun guy (or girl) at the drop of a hat, then look no further. Mushrooms in Super Mario World have the power to provide an instant speed boost to whoever consumes them.

Mushrooms in the rave world have the power to bestow great wisdom and uncontrollable laughter upon whoever consumes them. Truthfully, we are unsure which of those effects will apply to you when you put this hoodie on, but it seems like a win-win to us. Featuring a cute green and red mushroom over a light blue background, the 1 Up Hoodie is a winning addition to any raver's closet.

1) Tripping with Him Unisex Hoodie

Tripping with Him Unisex Hoodie

The pinnacle of pop culture-influenced hoodies features one of the most iconic cartoon characters of all time – Bart Simpson – melting in a psychedelically colorful puddle. The background features writing on a chalkboard that repeatedly states “I will not trip alone.”

While Bart might not appear to be the best influence at face value here, the reality is that he is bringing an important message to the people of EDM shows and festivals. Beyond his prudence, this is another gorgeous piece. The rainbow hues are given an extra boost by the contrast of the black and white hoodie background.

If your vibe is about combining hedonic pleasures with responsible use, then the Tripping with Him Hoodie is the ideal choice for you.
