The ultimate bag for festivals and raves… Vibedration have got you covered for all those hot days in the sun and late nights dancing away under the stars… each backpack has a secret water compartment stowed away to keep you hydrated all festival. Or… gives you the perfect portable cocktail pouch, depending on how you look at it (I know how we’ll be using ours ;)). In trippy prints and holographic foils and glitters, Vibedration has got the look down too, their bags really light up and work SO well with our holographic reflective catsuits.

As any regular festival-goer knows, when the sun sets the party doesn't stop and neither should your look! The reflective spandex panels in our clothing really come to life under a camera flash or festival lights and some of our fabrics even glow under UV light but if you want to add to your nighttime look then here are some options to help you stand out in the dark.

Anything UV reactive is always a winner so why not grab some UV face paints by the guys over at Moon Glow. They offer 16 incredible UV shades from pastel pinks to vibrant violets and they are ethically made in the UK which is a massive thumbs up for us 👍

UV Rave Festival Make Up

If you want to take it that one step further they also have UV eyeliners, lipsticks, nail varnishes, hair streaks and soo much more to keep you glowing through

the night.
