So rather than ask "What's the weather like in Byron Bay in April?", I find it much more useful to hear about what people wear to the festival. There seem to be a lot of veterans on this board who I'm sure have their gear scheme down pat. So what do you start off with during the day? Do you add a layer when the sun goes down? What kind of clothing do you use around the campsite? Thanks.

Depends on your domicile and taste.

Shorts & T-shirt Deadend. Never found a need to take a jumper or anything to keep warm in. Footwear is the important thing. Lots of people wear gumboots but I prefer my Rossi workboots, they're waterproof and very comfortable to wear for 12 hours. A folded up poncho doesn't go astray either, good to sit on when the rain stops.

Umm... most people just dress normally, whatever their definition of that might be. You'll run into people in everything from fluro singlets from Jay Jays to full cowboy regalia...

Take something for cold and something for wet and you'll be right. Keep in mind that the giant tents at each stage are great at trapping heat and moisture, so even if it's cold out, chances are you'll be fine most of the day/night.

I swear by my Rossi work boots, too - with plenty of Dubbin!

With that in mind Lone can we expect that you will be in your normal clothes thur-mon but change into you'r funkin' funky attire (pimp'n hat, sparkle glasses, penis nose & nappy) for day 6?

No Mr Bongo it pays not to be too conspicuous as my friend Coppinafield 19[In trying to spell it correctly I've just stumbled on what a great play on words it is] has discovered.

Especially travelling through airports.

The idea is to dress down a bit.

The nose concept you refer to is definitely out this season.
