Your options are limitless when it comes to picking out the right sunglasses for your festival fit. On the subject of festi shades, we know a thing or two: Quay actually started out with inspiration from the Australian music festival circuit. If you’re looking for the perfect fit to throw shade in style, we’ve got you covered. Here are our fave Quay’s for living up festi life—we’ll break it down by festival-type to help you find a statement pair.
From EDC to Tomorrowland, the focus here is all about bright, bold colors, whether it’s the Kandi bracelet you share with your bestie or the neon lights on stage. With sunnies, go bold with colorful glasses frames or balance your technicolor fit with a timeless pair.
Get INTO IT with a flattering aviator silhouette. Available in smoke or purple, these frameless injection square frames turn heads with a bold brow bar but won't overwhelm your colorful festival style.
Lean into colorful vibes with NIGHTFALL, punchy, easy-to-wear shields that you can pop on for a statement. Find a range of colorways, from purple-blue to pink. Plus, it just so happens to be the perfect afterparty fit.
Whether you’re stopping by the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival or the Tobago Jazz Experience, dance it out in an effortless getup. Whether you’re in breezy shorts or a sleek dress, sunnies add to that cool-cat element.
Flex it ‘cause you’re STILL RICH. These specs are jazzy statement-makers with their bold one-piece shield shape, classic-cool fade lenses, and contrasting black frames.
Channel those oversized jazz sunnies with ALMOST READY. These luxe squares feature all premium details: a gold lens logo, cut-out details, and polarized lenses.
Under the desert sun, stay cool with a water bottle and a pair of sunnies. The desert is where it’s at, home to festivals such as Coachella, which is one of pop’s biggest weekends, and Dinah Shore Weekend, which is the largest event celebrating queer women. Style can be a free-for-all at desert festivals, but sunnies are an outfit must.
SHOW UP in a Y2K vibe with small statement sunglasses. The high-quality injection frame paired with timeless brown lenses and thick temples will have you cool + ready for all those hot desert festivities.
When in doubt, keep your look HIGH KEY with cult-fave aviators. Great for Coachella fashion, this oversized metal frame features flat lenses, signature triangle notches, and adjustable nose pads. It comes in different colorways so that you can flex the style you want, whether it’s fade lens sunglasses or pink festival sunglasses—you can even get it with a prescription.
Heritage Music Festivals
Heritage festivals, such as Essence Fest and Mawazine, are cultural celebrations that embrace fashion, food, and music. Looks can vary, but you can never go wrong with sunnies as you hit up all the events.
Get SO SERIOUS with microsunnies for a retro-cool mood. These stylish sunnies amp up the specs appeal of any fit with their high-end gold deets. Bonus: they have premium injection frames and thick temples for extra durability.
Pop on NEW MONEY for a sleek look. These luxe frames feature a waterfall edge, gold accents, polarized lenses, and a statement semi-rimless style for all eyes on you.
