Not many things in today’s world brings people together more than music. Concerts and festivals often bring together like-minded individuals who share a passion for live music and a love for specific artists. Although t-shirts have been a popular way to express dedication to a band since the 60’s and 70’s, pins have seen an increase in popularity as a way to celebrate bands and artists. Hat pins have been widely adopted within the music scene as a primary way to represent a favorite musician while attending events. These pins, custom made to represent a specific musical artist or event, can be a great keepsake to keep the memory of a concert or festival alive. Along with the rehashing of old memories for the wearer, pins can also tell stories of past adventures to others in the crowd.
