Rave totems serve several different purposes; to express creativity, spread a meaningful message, or assist your group in easily locating you in a crowd of thousands. No matter the reason, totems are a huge part of festival culture and add fun and character to the environment. Below are some of the most memorable totems we found at Beyond Wonderland Bay Area last weekend.

If you’re inspired to create a totem for the next festival that you’re attending, here’s a helpful guide on creating your own totem: How to Make a Festival Totem
