FESTIVAL PREVIEW: 5 Ways To Prepare for Purple Hatters Ball

PURPLE HATTERS BALL – May 8-10 2015 – Spirit of Suwannee Music Park

Purple Hatters Ball is an intimate and friendly festival located in the magical Spirit of Suwannee Music Park. It may not be massive, but it has a very special vibe about it as the memory of Rachel Morningstar Hoffman brings people together in a blissful excitement to celebrate life and music. Check out our full 2014 review for more info about Rachel and last years festivities. Right now were focusing on 2015! Here are 5 things to do after purchasing your Purp Hatters ticket.

1. Get A Purple Hat


Almost all the festival attendees take part in the Purple Hat tradition of the festival. Wearing a Purple Hat is a staple symbol of the fest because Rachel, who the festival honors, always wore a fuzzy purple hat. It’s fun to have something fuzzy and purple on your head, and while festival sells the official purple hats at the festival, it’s a good idea to have some options for the weekend.

2. Practice Your Dance Moves

Dancing is obviously a natural festival activity but the dance moves at Purple Hatters get extra funky! Everyone feels like your best friend here so you will probably end up twirling someone you’ve never met or someone you’ve known for years. Get your dancing shoes ready and practice a couple moves in the mirror so you can really break it down while Lotus is kickin’ out the jams.

3. Listen To Our Purp Hatters 2015 Playlist With Lotus, Nahko, and many more on the 2015 lineup it’s sure to be a blast. Do some research and listen to our playlist featuring Purple Hatters artists from this year’s lineup. You might find something new!

4. Get New Swimwear

The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park holds more than just amazing music and live oak trees. There is a beautiful natural flowing river that acts as the perfect afternoon venue for a beach party. Purple Hatters really kicks off the summer season so you’re going to want some new swimwear anyway. If you feel like getting fancy, check out these cool trunks from Michaels Swimwear.


5. Convince All Your Friends To Go

Purple Hatters is a festival experience that will turn your friends into your family. It’s really an experience like no other. Round up all your friends and tell them they’re are going camping for a few days in May! It’s affordable, the music is awesome, and the scenery is gorgeous. You surely won’t regret it!
