Dancing Gear: The Ultimate Buyer’s Guide For EDM Festival Addicts
Buying music festival dancing gear can get tricky. You can either buy good quality products the first time, or you can waste your money until you finally get something of quality that will last you for years.
This is a pretty thorough post with a lot of information, but here’s the short version of my recommendation on festival dancing gear: It’s worth spending a little more on quality items. While festival-goers who push hard or want to spend the big bucks will see nice benefits in the higher-priced items, you can really get a good bargain on some of the needed gear and save a few hundred dollars in total. My recommendation for a variety of good quality dance music gear for a reasonable price starts with the feet, specifically with the Adidas Ultra Boost, available for men & women (click on the links to see them on Amazon). Experienced ravers (and EDC reddit group members) recommend these quite often, or generally, a good pair of athletic shoes. But you can’t go wrong with a pair of quality Adidas shoes. These will make sure you can dance around and move freely without causing any foot pain, which can affect your whole festival experience. In the below article we will also discuss dancing outfits and accessories which we highly recommend.
Why I choose The Adidas Ultra Boost?
These ultra boost are very comfortable, look great and let your feet breathe. During a music festival, your feet will be subjected to long hours of heavy activity, jumping and dancing, sometimes even running. So your feet will need enough spring and comfort. If you are looking for a COMFORTABLE shoe with bounce and roomy toe boxed this might just be the pair you need. You can rely on them to not give you blisters. They are a bit pricey but have a long life span and absolutely worth the investment if you walk a lot, go to a lot of music festivals and are somewhat the active kind of person.
Go For LED Shoes
If you’re on the more adventurous side, and would love to add some glam and attention to your outfit, maybe you would consider checking out these nice LED Rave Shoes from Festival Fanatics. Made for both men and women, they boast seven static color modes and one changing color mode. They will last 8 hours so you need not worry about them running out throughout the night. These Shoes have the brightest LED available with each pair including multiple LED Colors being Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, purple, aqua and white. The Shoes are backed by a sixty-day warranty. So why not grab a pair today and be the envy of your friends and all your new fans at the next festival!

Geared for cross training, they will handle easily the flexibility and movement of your dancing at the festivals. On the other hand, their fabric and material is moisture wicking which transports heat and sweat away from the body, what more can you ask for?
On another hand, you can also check out this nice pair of shorts from Game Gear if the above pants are not what you’re really looking for. These have the same moisture wicking fabric, are 82% Nylon, 18% Spandex, and have four-way stretch as well. You can easily cold wash them and hang them to dry after returning from a long weekend of dancing and walking.
