There's definitely something in the air (and probably something in the water) at music festivals.

1. You have a reason to get a group of your friends together for a crazy weekend.

Music brings people together. So whether you're going with your best friends or people you're just starting to get to know, music festivals are a great place to bond!

2. Music festivals are the perfect place to meet new people.

Whether you get lost and find a cool group of people, or a lost wanderer stumbles upon your group, music festivals are great places to meet incredible people.

3. There are usually different stages, so there's music for everyone in your groups taste.

If one friend is into trap but the others into house, there's no problem! There's plenty of different music to be heard and lots of time to run from stage to stage.

4. The people at music festivals will make you question why people outside the festival can't get along.

Most people who spend money on their festival tickets are going to have a good time and put out good energy. While you're in there its gonna be weird to think that there's a reason for hate in the world. There's so much love inside a festival and people give that love out to friends, family, and even strangers.

5. P.L.U.R.

Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect. Thanks to the EDM community, music festivals are a great place to be completely yourself and not have to worry about judgement.

6. It's a great excuse to come up with a killer costume.

People bring their a game to festivals. From homemade costumes, to expensive ones and from being covered head to toe, to just barely being covered at all, music festivals are a great place to let your freak flag fly.

7. Camping.

Some festivals offer camp grounds which means the party literally doesn't stop until the day after the festivals over!

8. Art

There's so much art to be found in a festival. Sometimes artists are hired to sell and make their art inside, and sometimes people bring and make their own. Gloving and hula hoops have become a huge trend at festivals. People will bring their accessories inside and put on shows for people resting in the grass.

9. The stages are beautiful

Festival designers come up with crazy stage ideas that will blow your mind. From huge owls, to cathedrals, to waterfalls on stage and fireworks, you'll be taken away by their beauty.

10. Festivals will change your life for the better.

There's a feeling that I'm pretty sure everyone gets when leaving a festival. While walking through the gates to your car, you get a pit in your stomach and it feels like a sense of belonging and love for everyone you just spent the last few days with. Everyone inside has a connection with each other. The connection comes through the music and its what keeps everyone coming back again and again.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.
