It’s summertime, with the relaxed feeling that comes with it, which means that there is going to be a lot of music festivals all over the country. In fact, according to the current agricultural trends, farmers have been taking advantage of this in order to make use of the parts that they lay fallow for the season. What many of these people forget is that 1), it is the middle of the summer, and 2), if it’s not being held in a farm area, the festival is usually located in the middle of godforsaken desert. Either way, there will be the brain-baking heat that’s intense enough to barbecue the local roadkill. Read More
It’s summertime, which means all of the major music festivals will be held all over the world. For the summer is the perfect time to get outside, enjoy some good music and to wear a Rage Hat that says something like “Party Gurl” or “Dope”.
With all of that said, here are the best festivals of this year in general and this summer in particular. All of the choices were based on popularity, vibe and the probability that the weather on that day will not be boiling hot (we are dealing with summer, after all):
As rap music, trending topics, hashtags and memes get more and more popular each year – the result is a barrage of new slang terms. Slang is defined as very informal language that is usually spoken rather than written. Slang can be used to reference an entire era. Phrases like “eat me”, “psych”, “radical” and “righteous” defined the 80’s generation. “Oh, snap”, “for sure” and “totally” are instant 90’s cliches. But that was then, this is now and its 2016. We’ve got rap music, Twitter, Vine, Tumblr, YouTube, and other sorts of social media to facilitate the spread of the current vernacular.
We wanted to be absolutely sure that we’re dialed in on how people are speaking this year, so we looked at all of the random hat orders we’ve had over the past year and picked out the most common phrases this year. Chances are you either use these words multiple times a day, have never heard them spoken, or are you already so sick of hearing them that you hope they die forever.
Ultra Music Festival
Hey Guys, as many of you know, we attended Ultra Music Festival this past weekend. Normally our flagship “RAGE” Hat leads the festival sales, but YOLO hats came in strong. We prepared a decent amount of YOLO hats, only to have them fly off the shelves. The Ultra Festival was filled with neon hats, and people ran over to the booth, exclaiming that they only lived once! We don’t know what it is, but we know that YOLO is the hottest new hat on the market.
What are Rave Gloves?
Rave Gloves are LED gloves with 5 multicolored internal LED microlights. Unlike typical light up gloves, they flash in a variety of different colors, with multicolor changing mode, strobe mode, and flashing mode. They are the ultimate accessory for raves and parties. You guys have been requesting them via facebook and twitter, and from our experience at music festivals, we know they would be a perfect fit for rageing hard! The neon colors will match your hats and sunglasses!
What are trucker hats?
Trucker hats are unique. Trucker hats are a type of baseball cap that gained popularity as a trendy item in the early 2000’s. Originally used for promotional giveaways, the lightweight mesh design, giant foam front, and comfortable style allowed the trucker hat to gain wide variety of followers.
Do you love to “frat”?
With more and more people tailgating, attending football games, and getting rowdy, frat parties are growing faster than ever! Rage Hats is pleased to announce custom frat hats! Now you can frat even harder by creating your own neon mesh trucker hat. As always, these hats are snapback style caps, one size fits all!
Electronic Music Festivals?
If you are reading this, than you probably have experienced the wonderful world of electric dance music. Whether you attended a major festival (Electric Daisy Carnival, Identity Fest, Ultra ect ) or caught a local DJ… there are commonalities we have all came to realize. EDM draws us in. It involves more senses than just the ear; you see it, you hear it, you feel it. It’s attractive because it’s… “underground”. Even with growing popularity among younger audiences, mainstream North America seems uninterested, seeing it as a “niche” genre.
