Concerts are back, and while many cities have lifted their mask mandates, a number of music venues and festival grounds are still requiring the use of face masks.
If you’re going to be masked up — for now — at concerts and festivals, your best bet is to find a face mask that’s comfortable enough to wear through the day (and night), while stylish enough to not cast a Covid shadow over that outfit you spent weeks picking out.
The best face masks for festivals should be lightweight, breathable and versatile enough to take you both indoors and out — all while adding a little fun to your festival accessories game. Here are five of the best festival face masks to buy online.
1. VIDA Limited-Edition Face Mask
VIDA’s cloth face masks are made from a soft organic cotton and responsibly manufactured by artisans around the world. The company says the mask provides 99% filtration, though you won’t feel constricted or stuffy underneath. This series of masks comes in more than a dozen limited-edition prints and patterns, from paisley to florals and abstract art. Purchase: $11 at ShopVida.com.
(Prefer something more protective? VIDA sells top-rated KN95 masks and FDA-authorized N95 masks on its site too).
2. Cremoly Face Masks
One of the most comfortable face masks for festivals and long days of travel, Cremoly’s face masks are made from a super silky microfiber and stretch natural latex for a seamless fit. The masks are designed to filter out PM 2.5 particles (microscopic particulates that are 30 times smaller than a human hair), in addition to blocking out dust, pollen, allergies and mold.
Cremoly says the masks can be used 60 times after washing, which is more eco-friendly than using disposable masks. Choose from more than 20 designs online. Purchase: $9.99 at Cremoly.com.
3. Foot of the Loom Cloth Face Masks (50-Pack)
These Foot of the Loom face masks are great for concerts, festivals, travel or day to day errands. That’s thanks to the super soft and cozy T-shirt material, which is gentle against your skin within rubbing or irritation. It’s cool and breathable too, even in hot weather. The mask is machine-washable (up to 15 times), wrinkle-resistant and won’t lose its shape or stretchiness even after multiple washes. Like a good T-shirt, it even gets softer over time. Purchase: $18.27 (50-pack) on Amazon.com.
4. Tommie Copper Face Masks (2-Pack)
One of the top-reviewed face masks for festivals, these adjustable masks from Tommie Copper boast a 4.7-star rating (out of five) from more than 6000 reviewers online. The masks fit almost any size face, thanks to the 15% spandex blend material and the easy-to-adjust straps. You won’t feel any pulling or tugging on your ears or face, even if you’ve been wearing this mask all day.
The company says it infuses each mask with “Copper Znergy” a patented copper and zinc technology that helps to repel odors. The material, meantime, is naturally moisture-wicking, so your mask will not only stay stink-free, but dry as well. Purchase: $29.50 (for two) on Amazon.com.
5. Henry Masks
We always get asked about our Henry Masks thanks to the unique triangular-style design and fun, bold prints. Whether we’re on a plane or hanging at an outdoor festival, the masks hold up to a full-day of use (they’re reusable too!). The beak-style design makes it easy to breathe without feeling like the mask is sitting directly over your nose and mouth; the straps let you wear the mask around your head or over the ears. Purchase: $49.50 (for four) on HenryMask.com.
