From the info above one can deduced that that acts that day are super young, hip, and laid back. Most importantly it is going to be hotter than Hades. For Saturday's look you are going to keep the a young and fresh look all while trying to fight heatstroke. The only way I know how to pull both of these missions off is to go with a modern hippie look.
The signature piece of any hippie is tie-dye. To achieve this look you can pick up a great cut tank from Urban Outfitters. On bottom you can maintain your cool and sanity by pairing your tie-dye with these Marni tailored shorts. The shorts are simplistic enough to fit into the hippie culture but cut for the modern man.
As far as footwear goes try to avoid sandals at all costs. There are going to be a lot of people stomping around and your feet are bound to be a target. Not to mention that most mens feet are not attractive enough to have people staring at them. This is why you can pick up these Vans. They are super distressed and super comfortable.
When it comes to accessories they can be as tame or as wild as you want them to be. A straw fedora will keep your head away from the harsh rays and give you a more bohemian look. no matter how big of a hippie you are a man should always be wearing a timepiece. Why no go super funky them with this vintage American Appare l one. To top everything off why not just pop on a pair of bright colored wayfarers. they don't necessarily need to be expensive. You can get a pair for $5 anywhere because they're bound to get lost or broken in the chaos and true hippies don't believe in all that consumerism.
