There was no shortage of westerncore staples like denim and cowgirl boots at spring music fests in and around the Queen City. But we also saw sundresses, tulle, leather and lace as we made the rounds at Moo, Brew & ’Que Music Fest, BrightFire Music & Arts Festival, and Charlotte’s new mega-festival, Lovin’ Life. From Stevie Nicks’ heartfelt tribute in the rain to an Avett Brothers homecoming, this new blockbuster event was the place to be the first weekend in May. Mark your calendars for May 2-5, 2025, when the festival returns in what’s sure to become hotly anticipated new Charlotte tradition. And let these styles serve as inspiration for the upcoming summer festivals and concerts to come.
