When it comes to celebrating your style, there's no better place to do that than at a music festival, surrounded by other people who are like you. You can take this time to experiment with silhouettes and pops of colors, that perhaps wouldn’t usually fit into your daily life.

 

From sticking to light natural fabrics and billowing silhouettes to representing independent brands that you support — here at FARFETCH we want to keep you in the know about what the fashion-forward groups are wearing and loving.

 

But where were all these fashion-forward groups this year? That's right — they were at MDLBEAST festival. The Riyadh-based music festival showcases local, regional, and international talent — on a mission to develop the region's music economy and ecosystem.

 

Did you head to MDLBEAST? Or were you inspired on how to dress for a music festival? We thought so. We recently took the time to speak to four influencers who headed to the festival, they spoke of their style inspirations and why MDLBEAST remains an important date in their diary.

 

Discover what they had to say below.
