The Dos And Don'ts Of Music Midtown

The Dos And Don'ts Of Music Midtown

Make the most of your experience.

Although it happens in Atlanta every year, Furman students down in Greenville, SC always get excited for Music Midtown. In case you don't already know, Music Midtown is an annual music festival in downtown Atlanta that spans a Saturday and a Sunday. The timing is perfect for us college students who don't have much time to devote to concerts, and it also helps that the total ticket package for both days is under $200! However, there are always rule that you have to follow for big events like this. Here are some dos and don'ts of Music Midtown!

Do: Buy your ticket ahead of time.

Don't: Wait until the last minute.

If you haven't already bought your ticket, the price has already gone up. But never fear! It's only a $10 increase from the original ticket price.

Do: Arrive early.

Don't: Wait to go until your favorite band is about to play.

Since it's such a popular festival, it does take some time to get through security. Plan ahead and get there early. Also, don't waste all the money you spent just to go see one or two bands. Venue hop and see as many as you can!

Do: Bring an empty water bottle and a blanket.

Don't: Bring alcohol or chairs.

It's the rules. You can only bring a small purse or drawstring backpack, so you better make the most of it. There is security and they will confiscate anything that is against the rules. So make sure you read them ahead of time!

Do: Eat before you come.

Don't: Rely solely on venue food.

Since you'll be there all day, you'll obviously have to buy some food, but try to keep the spending down to a minimum!

Do: Take lots of pictures of yourself and your friends!

Don't: Take videos of the bands.

You don't want to get kicked out, do you?

Do: Have fun with your friends!

Don't: Let anything get in the way of that!

You're making memories here! Have a fun time, listen to great music, and make Music Midtown everything it's suppose to be!

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

My Top 5 Favorite Quotes That Keep Me Going in Life

"Failure is a detour not a dead end street" - Zig Ziglar


Here they are:

​"Failure is a detour not a dead end street"​ - Zig Ziglar

Let me start off with my all time favorite quote. If I ever need motivation or I feel like giving up, I search this quote up first. It is the best quote to tell you that failure is never the end because so many people seem to think so when something small goes wrong.

"Try and fail but do not fail to try"- Jared Leto

Man Standing on Cliff Photography · Free Stock Photo

The best thing about this quote is that it goes for everyone. We can try so hard and still not get something right because that is just a part of life, but if we completely stop trying, there is nowhere to go from there because we're putting all of our effort to waste and that's not fair to ourselves. Everyone and anyone can simply try to accomplish something.

"The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams" - Oprah Winfrey

You can look at this quote in a couple of ways. You can think about what Oprah had in mind when she said this or you can just do what she says. I think we spend too much time thinking about what we could have done or pleasing others to please ourselves. We could either overthink every single step we take or we can set an open mind and take the risk to happiness. I don't know about you, but I prefer the second one.

"You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens"- Rumi

It seems like there is no possible way to ever look at this quote positively, but I beg to differ. This quote tells us that we might go through heartache but as we recover, we get stronger. Once we build up our full strength and something/someone hurts us, we can face it in a different way. Sometimes we feel like we have no value anymore but the truth is that we are just building false meanings for ourselves.

"Every day is a new day"

One of the shortest quotes, but the most meaningful. If everyday is a new day, then why should everyone always worry about what happens on that day? Every day is a new day and every day can be a better day.
