If it weren't for our old friend Corona, we would be in the midst of festival season right about now. These past few months of social distancing have me reminiscing on my times at music festivals: seeing my favorite artists, making memories with friends and living my best life. Although festival season has been canceled this summer, that's no reason not to plan for next year.
There's something for everyone
Rolling Loud Miami 2019
There are music festivals for practically every genre you can think of! Festivals like Coachella focus on a variety of genres (rock, pop, hip hop, EDM, etc.), while festivals like Rolling Loud focus on one genre (hip hop).
Make new friends
Music festivals are full of people who enjoy the same music as you; Why not get to know them? You can especially do this at festivals that offer camping, such as Firefly.
Instagram worthy photos
If you're all about having that perfect Instagram feed, a festival is definitely for you. There is often art and props to get your selfie on.
If you're a foodie like me, you'll love the opportunity to check out the wide variety of food from dumplings and tacos to ice cream in a waffle... yum!
Dance your heart out
You get to leave all your worries behind for the weekend as you hear music from your favorite artists, while creating memories with your best friends.
More bang for your buck
Governors Ball NYC 2018
Rather than paying hundreds of dollars to see one artist in concert, festivals give you the opportunity to see multiple acts for possibly the same price. There's nothing like the rush of running from one stage to the next to catch each artist's set.
