Side of Style: Billboard Hot 100 Festival

Coachella, Lollapalooza, Firefly, Gov Ball–you name a music festival and I’ve probably attended over the past year or two. I can’t get enough of the collective energy from the large crowds, the variety of artists brought together at the events, and of course people-watching everyone’s creative festival attire.

I’m super excited to be heading out to Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival this weekend at Jones Beach Theater, conveniently right here in New York. It’s a relief to not be worrying about catching flights or pitching a tent to experience an all-star music lineup spanning the entire weekend. Headliners include Ariana Grande, Martin Garrix, Fetty Wap, and the newly single Calvin Harris (wink wink). Tickets are still on sale, but going quick. Scoop up a single day or full weekend pass here!

It’s seriously a scorcher here in New York and doesn’t show signs of letting up this weekend. Dress accordingly and stay safe out there. Wear a hat and stay hydrated to beat the heat. Luckily, music festivals give you a free pass to pretty much wear anything so we’re grabbing some breezy, breathable separates to keep cool.
