We love music festival season here at Retro Review! Nothing beats listening to your favourite music whilst playing some of the best retro games. As homage to some of our favourite games and movies we decided to create a series of mashup designs taking characters and places from them and introducing them into the music festival scene in the form of awesomely retro fest shirts.
Star Wars As A Music Festival
We felt that one festival wouldn’t do the Star Wars Saga justice so it was split into two music festivals; celebrating both the light and dark side of the force. Darklord Festival took inspiration from the UK’s Download Festival and Rebel Fest took inspiration from Blackpool’s Rebellion Punk Festival.
Killer Festival – Horror Music Fest
We had a lot of fun with this one! Each scary slasher and horror villain has been paired with iconic band logos from the past and present. The sponsors are even the oldschool horror legends Wolfman, Dracula and Frankenstein.
Wyld Stallyns Excellent Tour – Music Festival
As huge fans of the movie Bill and Ted we have had the honour of working for Alex Winter (aka Bill S Preston Esquire) on some previous Wyld Stallyns designs. This latest festival shirt brings the best festival lineup since 410BC in Athens. A parody of some of the most iconic band logos of all time featuring the famous faces of Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure.
As seen worn by Keanu Reeves with Hideo Kojima:
Recently updated to full colour:
Wyld Stallyns – Battle of the Bands
This Bill and Ted’s Bogus journey design is part of the Trilogy I am working on. The colour scheme was chosen by Alex Winter himself and his kids love wearing theirs.
Mutants Rock – TMNT Festival
T.U.R.T.L.E. POWER. with this TMNT inspired festival tee. This design was also created with sleeve designs for long sleeve tees.
Batapalooza – Batman Festival
As a bit of a comic book nerd and lover of the Batman Arkham series it was only natural that Batman needed his own festival design, complete with the most metal of logos for the bat himself.
Triforce Tour – Zelda Music Festival
No festival lineup would be complete without everyone’s favourite Hyrule warrior!
