Summertime means it’s music festival time in the Nutmeg State

April 25, 2014

As the warm weather hits the U.S., the concert season heats up. And the festivals sprout like flowers after a spring shower. Connecticut has a couple of festivals coming up. There are the touring fests, such as Warped, which comes to Connecticut July 13 at Hartford’s Comcast Theater. There also is the state’s own annual Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport, which is held along shoreline July 31 to Aug. 3. And any show where there is tailgating is sure to become a festival on the spot. But what do you wear when you hit the festivals. Here are some suggestions from Forever 21 (Forever21.com) and the Kardashian Kollection at Sears (Sears.com).
