Electronic dance music is more than music. For most of us, it’s a way of life, and we represent that lifestyle proudly. The scene is bigger than ever and companies are cashing in on our dedication by churning out some pretty gnarly threads. From everyday wearables to unique festival fits, EDM fans have an overwhelming amount of outfit options to suit their fancy. To help weed out the wankers, we have the fashionable deets on some of the hottest electronic dance music clothing companies.
“The brighter, the better” is the motto, at least in festival land, and New York-based Team InMind has got some of the brightest threads on the block. From sunrise to sunset, and right back around to sunrise, Team InMind has the gear to help you shine at any event. From graphic tanks to bootylicious boy shorts, this brand has a little bit of something for everyone.

Into The AM
Based in Anaheim, California, Into The AM set sail back in 2012 with one goal in mind: to capture the essence of EDM with wearable art. Into The AM saw a need for self-expression beyond the all-too-popular “Where’s Molly” tanks and typical neon graphics. Treating clothing as a canvas, rather than a billboard, the gang fought to bring a sense of sophistication to the party with their gear.

It is not only worn by celebrities and big-name DJs like Afrojack, but also by the very fans who help to shape the scene.
