Lululemon All Night Festival Bag Review
If you’re looking for a low-maintenance cross-body purse, you’ll love the All Night Festival Bag. Lululemon makes four different styles of this bag including:
- Lululemon All Night Festival Bag Micro
- Lululemon All Night Festival Bag Micro Zip Top
- Lululemon All Night Festival Bag 5L
- Lululemon All Night Festival Bag Zip Top
All styles are composed of the same material – the body is 100% nylon and the lining is 100% polyester.
They’re also all water-repellent and easy to clean with just a baby wipe!
For more stubborn stains, a dab (I put it on the end of a Q-tip) of micellar water is all it takes.
The exterior zippered pockets and interior compartments are great for staying organized!
It’s a great option for a diaper bag too.
Here’s what the 5L size looks like from the front.
Lululemon All Night Festival Bag 5L
This bag is comfortable and lightweight, and the strap is easily adjustable.
At the time of writing this review, it’s available in three different colors:
- Grey Sage
I chose the Chrome/Silver version.
You can wear it over your shoulder or as a crossbody bag.
Here’s how it looks as an over-the-shoulder bag.
I like the second option since it lets me move my hands more freely, a must when you’re out with the kids!
The clip at the front of the bag is easy to pop open and closed and makes for a wide opening.
Here are all of the baby items you can fit!
I managed to get my wallet, a spare outfit (size 18 months), some diapers and wipes all into the 5L bag.
It’ll easily hold your wallet, makeup, keys, and other essentials with room to spare.
The front zippered pocket is a nice little area to stick miscellaneous things like a lip balm.
I also like to hook my keys onto the metal hooks of my bags – it saves space inside and they’re always visible so I don’t have to go digging for them later.

Lululemon All Night Festival Bag Micro
This Micro’s volume isn’t listed on Lululemon’s website but the dimensions are nearly identical to the Everywhere Belt Bag (EBB) which has a volume of 1L.
The Micro comes in the same three colors as the 5L Festival bag:
- Grey Sage
You can also adjust the shoulder strap to wear it as either a purse or a belt bag.
Honestly, I find the fold-over style looks a little funny on as a belt bag though!
I prefer the zip closure of the EBB.
That said, the pop clip is the same as the 5L and it offers the same wide opening to make accessing your goods a sinch.
Lululemon All Night Festival Bag Zip Top
This version of the Festival bag offers the same 5L volume as the regular one but features a secure zip top.
It also has three strap loops that you can clip a nano pack onto – great for something like your keys, an inhaler, a chap stick, or another essential you reach for frequently.
There are currently two color options to choose from:
- Pink Pastel
- Black (with silver accents)*
This zip top festival bag is only available online.
*The black colored zip top version of the Festival bag uses silver hardware while the regular one has gold accents – something to keep in mind if you’re coordinating with the jewelry you usually wear!
Lululemon All Night Festival Bag Micro Zip Top
The Zip Top Micro Festival bag has the same shape and features as the larger size we just talked about above – including the same three strap loops!
Like the other micro, it has a volume of just 1L though.
There are currently four color options available:
- Black (with silver accents)
- Bronze Green
- Seal Grey
- Pink Pastel
The shape of this micro bag is better for use as a belt bag than the regular micro Festival bag.
Lululemon Festival Bag Dupe
Adidas makes a pretty good festival bag dupe!
It’s called the Courtside Crossbody.
It has the same shape and pockets as the Lululemon bag and the dimensions are also very similar to the 5L size.
The Adidas version is 12.5″ x 4.5″ x 9.75″ while Lululemon’s 5L is 11.4″ x 3.9″ x 8.3″.
Lululemon Festival Bag Review: Final Thoughts
The Lululemon All Night Festival bag is an awesome choice when you’re on the go!
There are four styles to choose from in either the 1L volume size (micro) or 5L size:
- All Night Festival Bag Micro
- All Night Festival Bag Micro Zip Top
- All Night Festival Bag 5L
- All Night Festival Bag Zip Top
All of them are made from the same 100% nylon exterior that’s easy to clean and water repellent.
This is really important to me as a busy mom whose kids often have messy hands!
But if you’re on the hunt for a small 1L waist bag, I think you’re better off getting the Everywhere Belt bag.
The simple top-zip design and square shape of the EBB are better for maximizing the use of your space than the half-circle shape and bottom zip opening of the Micro Festival bag.
That said, I do like the 5L size with the pop open top and wide opening.
The bonus 4L volume of the 5L All Night Festival bag lets me pack a few extra things than my EBB does so it’s better for long days out with the kids.
If I didn’t have so many black purses with gold accents, I definitely would have chosen this color over silver!
The black and gold bag is super elegant and can be dressed up or down while the grey sage and silver/chrome colors are more limited to athletic looks.
Which color Festival bag will you get? Are you feeling the wide opening top or zip top?
