  • How To Stand Out At a Music Festival with EL Wire

    The summer season is our busiest time of year at GlowCulture because of all the great music festivals happening across North America. When you are in a crowd of 10,000+ people it can sometimes be difficult to stand out which is why EL wire has always been a popular accessory at festivals like Shambhala, Burning Man, EDC and Sasquatch Festival. EL wire helps you stand out in a crowd and makes finding your friends a breeze at night as the vibrant colour of EL wire makes anyone stand out.

    The most popular choice for people attending music festivals are our pre-made EL wire glow glasses. Our glow glasses are lightweight, trendy & available in a wide range of colours. The EL wire faces outwards and is rarely seen by the wearer, but the glow effect looks amazing at night. We sell glow glasses in a wayfarer style, aviator, heart shaped & zig-zag.

    If you are feeling a little more adventurous and want your own unique glow set-up we sell a variety of pre-made EL wire kits to suit your needs. We have you covered whether you need a basic 1 colour EL wire starter kit, or 20 meters of EL wire in 4 different colours. All of our EL wire kits contain everything you need to use them aside from batteries, and EL wire is easy to attach to clothing, bikes, backpacks, hats, robots, dinosaur costumes or anything else you can imagine. Our smaller kits use a tiny 1 battery driver that can easily be hidden while our deluxe multi colour kits sometimes use our larger 12v battery pack that can glow for up to two days.

    Have fun this summer with EL wire from GlowCulture!

Which EL Wire Kit Is Right For Me?

EL Wire Buyers Guide

EL wire is a great way to add a wicked glow to clothing, costumes, backpacks, hats, bikes, and more. It is a thin, heat-free plastic coated wire that gives off a cool 360 degree glow. EL wire is available in 10 colors and 4+ lengths to suit your needs. Our glowing wire is flexible to allow for intricate designs and is simple to attach to fabric, surfaces, and items. EL wire which is short for electroluminescent wire is made up of a tiny copper wire coated in a phosphor that will glow when powered by a 'driver'. There are two smaller 'corona' wires surrounding the copper wire that carry the electricity back and allow it to glow. The inner wire is covered in a PVC casing that gives the wire its unique color and it also protects the core from the elements.

 

Here is a breakdown of our 4 main kit types:

 

EL Wire Starter Kits

Our EL wire starter kits offer a great way to get started with EL wire as they are ready-to-use and contain everything you need. We have paired up our extra bright & colorful glow wire with a small & easy to hide driver to light it up. These kits are great for small to medium sized projects such as adding some glow to the brim of a hat, lining the zipper of a hoodie for Shambhala, or decking out your bike for Burning Man.

 

Deluxe Multi Color EL Wire Kits

Our deluxe multi color EL wire kits are great for when you need multiple strands connected to one driver. Our kits come with 2 to 6 individual strands of EL wire, a splitter, and a driver designed to power that length of wire. The deluxe kits are great for medium to large projects such as decking out your bike, lighting up your campsite at the next music festival, or building that winning Halloween costume. The drivers are typically a little bigger than the starter kits, but on the upside the battery run-time is a lot longer.

 

Sewable EL Wire Kits

Our sewable EL wire kits are similar to the starter and deluxe kits except the wire included is a 'welted' version that is made for sewing. The welted EL wire has a small 1cm plastic tab that runs the length of the wire so you can sew or pin it to clothing & costumes. Regular EL wire can still be sewn using a loop method which can be more efficient depending on the design.

 

Sound Sensitive EL Wire Kits

Our Sound sensitive EL wire kits are extremely popular and make a great choice if you are going to be using it around music. These kits will dance, pulse and flash to the music when in sound mode. We sell single color EL wire kits as well as 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 color deluxe kits. These kits are great for parties and outdoor festivals, but sitting next to the speakers will have them fully lit as it can overwhelm the sensor.

 

 Which EL wire kit is the right kit for me?

It's better to round up when measuring your required amount as most people don't buy enough length the first time, and extra EL wire can be cut and capped. Picking out 2 funky colors will help your design stand out, the most popular combinations are blue & pink, lime & red, and purple and yellow. With all of our EL wire kits we highly recommend our 2m power extendersallowing you to keep the driver in your pocket or tucked away somewhere safe.
