Music festivals far and wide have earned a reputation for gathering some of the most dedicated and creative fans out there, many of whom have created their own traditions at these events. One custom, in particular, that we've seen on the rise has been the creation of Totems, or "rage sticks" as some like to call them.
If you've been to an American music festival in the past few years, you've most likely seen one…or a few hundred. They come in all shapes and sizes and are decorated head to toe to express one's outrageous humor or affection of some of the artists performing.
One of our favorite festivals, Electric Forest, just completed its 2016 edition and from what we observed, its become the epicenter of Totems in the United States. It was truly a sight to be seen and since seeing is believing, we've decided to gather the best totems we saw all weekend long.
