Find Your Perfect Festival Sunglasses

Find Your Perfect Festival Sunglasses

Who doesn’t love a music festival? Whether it’s a one-day music, food and drinks affair or a long weekend camp out, there is plenty of fun to be had. Festivals are a place to spend time with your friends, enjoy some tunes, have adventures, and most importantly, make memories.

While the music and atmosphere of the event is certainly a standout – so too is the fashion and adventure of it all.

Whether you’re a festival goer who loves to go all out with a themed costume or you want to give off cool rocker vibes, one of the must have music festival fashion accessories is of course a pair of sunglasses.

You need a pair (or a few pairs) of sunnies two reasons – the first reason is pretty obvious; sunglasses can make or break an outfit. The second reason is that if you’re spending your day outside, regardless of the season or weather, you’re exposing your eyes (and the rest of your body) to UV rays.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are probably aware of how harmful UV rays can be for your eyes and skin. They can cause irreversible damage and disease, so it’s important to keep your peepers protected.

While we could spend all day talking about the importance of wearing sunglasses when it comes to your health, today, we actually want to help you find the perfect pair of sunglasses for your festival outfit, so we’re going to tell you about 7 sunglasses brands that have an awesome array of sunglasses perfect for festival season.

7 Brands Who Offer Festival-Worthy Sunglasses

There are literally hundreds and hundreds of sunglasses brands (not to mention styles) out there for you to choose from. So, to help you narrow down the list and make it easier for you to find a pair of festival sunnies, we’ve put together a list of 7 of our favourite brands that manage to capture the festival spirit in their range.

But, just before we dive right in, we just want to let you know that the brands we’re talking about today all offer 100% UV protection and are of the highest quality. So, with that out of the way, let’s jump in.


otis eyewear glasses

Otis Eyewear

Otis is an Australian sunglasses brand that stands out from the crowd in a few ways. Having been around for the last 20 or so years, the brand was founded on the basis of creating premium, sustainable and affordable sunglasses in timeless designs.

Otis sunglasses have mineral glass lenses, which is a super sustainable and endlessly recyclable material that offers the wearer spectacular clarity.

The styles of Otis sunglasses are pretty classic and traditional in terms of frame shapes and styles, but it their range of colourways that gives them another point of difference and individuality. The colours available are somewhat earthy toned and inspired by the world around us.

You can learn more about Otis sunglasses here, and you can shop the entire range available at Great Southern Sunnies here.



If you’re after the bougee look and feel that intricate detailing and oversized sunglasses can create, then a pair of Furla sunglasses might be the best option for you.

Timeless and elegant in style, these Italian designer sunglasses are pretty sophisticated, but they also are reminiscent of the oversized “It Girl” look of the early 2000s, which let’s face it, is still pretty big festival inspo to this day.

The oversized style is also particularly great because it ensures coverage of the delicate skin around the eyes too!

Furla sunglasses are available in a huge range of styles, with tortoiseshell and gold detailing dominating the colour ways. You can shop our range of Furla sunnies here.

Le Specs

A cult classic Australian brand that has been doing the rounds since 1979, Le Specs is a festival fashion favourite for a few reasons.

Firstly, they offer a pretty broad range of styles for men, women and people everywhere. With styles that are reminiscent of some super classic cool styles as well as some more expressive designs.

And while the broad range of styles is one of the main reasons for their popularity, it’s probably the fact that they offer high quality, on-trend styles at the fraction of the cost of some of the other big sunglasses brands out there. Le Specs retail for under $100, which means that you’re not going to break the bank to complete your look.

You can check out the Le Specs range we’ve got available here.



Dragon is probably most well known in the skating, skiing, surfing world, with their range of sunglasses being designed for those with an active lifestyle, but their range has a bit of spunk and pizzazz that is perfect for the music festival world.

Dragon is mostly geared at a male audience – that doesn’t mean that only men can wear them – but for the man taking his first footsteps in the world of music festivals, these sunnies might be just what they need to make them feel at home.

One of the stand out features of Dragon sunnies is the range of lens colours – they have a huge range, basically every colour of the rainbow available. This is one of the main reasons why we love them in the festival world. That and the fun range of oversized styles they offer.

You can learn more about how Dragon got started and check out the Dragon sunglasses we’ve got available to buy here.



Another somewhat conservative festival option is the range of sunnies available from Tonic. Tonic sunglasses have been around for almost 30 years now, and they were originally created for those who love boating and fishing and wanted high performance sunnies to match.

Well, the clarity and polarisation of these sunglasses make them totally comfortable and reduce your eye strain, but on top of that, to combat the glare and difficult visual conditions you might experience on the water, their range of sunnies come in a huge range of lens colours.

The styles of the frames themselves are the conservative part but they do offer great comfort, but it’s the lenses that can do the talking – definitely worth a look if you want something a little different but that isn’t going to stand out too much.

ray ban

Ray Ban

We couldn’t possibly talk about music festivals and not mention Ray Bans – they have some of the most iconic pairs of sunnies, some of which have been made so iconic by musicians – particularly the Wayfarers and Aviators.

Ray Bans ooze effortless cool, and if that laidback, relaxed, cool vibe is what you’re after, then you really can’t go wrong with a pair of Ray Bans.

Another reason Ray Ban is a great option is because not only are they known for their cult classic sunglasses, but outside of these styles, they still have a huge range with details and styles to appeal to anyone. A pair of Ray Bans is definitely not going to disappoint.

The last brand on our list is one that you might not have heard of before, unless you spend a lot of time looking for sunglasses and eyewear that has been made to stand out.

Valley sunglasses have been around since 2011 and they have an edge of darkness, with the cool appeal of the brand laying in the contradictions of the design choices. The brand blends sophistication with raw edginess, midnight black with crisp white, ultra feminine with bold silhouettes.

It’s these combinations that make them perfect for the festival goer who want to stand out and be noticed. Their range includes styles that are cool and classic and others that are weird and wonderful. Bright colours and raw aesthetic make them absolutely ideal in the festival world.

We’ve got a collection of Valley Eyewear sunnies available here.
