At that time limited festival fashion trends didn’t play a big role in what people would wear. As time went on, the rave scene became more mainstream and fashion trends began to play a bigger role in what people wore to festivals. Rave fashion is always evolving and changing, so you can always expect to see new and unique styles at festivals.
