You've probably been shopping on Nasty Gal for the past 6 months and have all the best neon crop tops and 90's shirts that would make Madonna feel like a virgin again.

 

But the best time of year is back again, and all we can think about are sunny days spent with friends at our favorite festivals. We’ve got everything you need to make this season the most epic yet.

 

Every year more and more music festivals are added to the list to attend.

 

Well lucky you, White Girl Sunscreen wants to help you out!
