Which Music Festival is Perfect For You

Whether you are a music festival novice, or a seasoned veteran, certain factors go into figuring out what music festival best suits you personally. Of course, experiencing them for yourself helps you to narrow down what you want in a festival, but if you don't have the time and money to attend every festival that comes around, you can analyze your responses to a few key questions.

Whether you are a music festival novice, or a seasoned veteran, certain factors go into figuring out what music festival best suits you personally. Of course, experiencing them for yourself helps you to narrow down what you want in a festival, but if you don’t have the time and money to attend every festival that comes around, you can analyze your responses to a few key questions.

1: Are you comfortable camping?

Festivals can be categorized in two different ways, camping festivals and city festivals. Camping festivals require you to come prepared to live on the festival grounds for a few days. It tends to work out better to attend these with a big group so everyone can contribute to the campsite. Everyone needs food and shelter, but speakers, tapestries, and lights really make your campground home. Another thing about camping festivals, showers are few and far between. If you have a problem being dirty and grimy for a few days, this might not be for you. As well as the lack of shower access, the sleeping arrangements are not glamorous either. Personally, I love camping festivals because you really become one with mother nature, and are constantly surrounded by festival goers!

2: Are able to travel?

For many people, so much money is spent on the festival alone, long distance travel may not be possible, and that is ok! There are local music festivals all over the nation. When I lived in Florida, great Florida local festivals include EDCO, SMF, Zen Awakening, and Ultra.

I lived all around Florida and had no problems attending any of these festivals, and they’re all so much fun. Here in San Diego, great festivals include CRSSD, Nocturnal Wonderland, Beyond wonderland, and HARD summer. For your specific needs you may have to do some research on what fun festivals are local to you!

3: Do you want art involved rather than just music?

Although we are discussing music festivals, many music festivals implement art within them. Festivals like Okeechobee and Electric Forest have a beautiful section dedicated just to art. You’ll often see free hand paintings, interactive art, and big displays of words and designs. For me, I absolutely love the artsy part of festivals, it makes the festival feel whole. For others, they only go to a festival for the music, so if you are one of these people, art won’t be a necessity whilst making your decision.

After reading this, really think about what works for you and what you really crave from a music festival. Whichever festival you choose, it will be amazing because it is your time to be free, pure, and happy!

All the love~ Leela

  2. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  3. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and
    all. However think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
    this site could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.
    Good blog!

  4. Hey terrific blog! Does running a blog like this require a great deal of work?
    I have absolutely no understanding of coding but I had
    been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have
    any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please
    share. I know this is off subject however I just had to ask.

  6. May I simply say what a comfort to find a person that actually knows
    what they’re discussing on the internet. You certainly
    realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    this side of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.

  7. I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is pretty value enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet
    will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

  8. Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from
    someone with experience. Any help would be enormously

    to put this short article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount
    of time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!
