Over the weekend, NYC celebrated August’s full moon the best way possible: Full Moon Fest, an annual music festival taking place on Governor’s Island. Though this event is smaller than your typical summer music festival, the lineup certainly doesn’t lack for talent. With acts such as Santigold, SBTRKT, Pusha T, and Allah-Las, some of the coolest tastemakers came out to have a good time, by which we mean dance and drink and party. And they looked really good doing it..

While the festival itself boasts a huge sandpit and plenty of fake palm trees to transform Governor’s Island into a tropical paradise, the downtown Manhattan skyline in the background doesn’t let you forget where you are. This all makes for a super specific vibe which manages to be a little bit city, a little bit beachy, and feature some of the best summer fashion we’ve seen in the festival circuit. 

Though it downpoured on and off over the weekend, that didn’t seem to put much of a damper on anyone’s outfit choices. We had a photographer on the scene to capture all the excellent fashion in action. Click through the gallery below to check out our favorite looks.
