    Lollapalooza 2019: The Ultimate Schedule

    Lollapalooza 2019: The Ultimate Schedule

    Lollapalooza: one of Chicago's biggest, if not the biggest, parties of the year. Hundreds of thousands of people descend upon Chicago's iconic Grant Park every year for a summer weekend to hear a conglomeration of extremely talented musicians/artists paint the Windy City all types of colors. For four days, the Midwest is blessed with a beautiful cacophony of one of humanity's most complex yet gorgeous forms of art, music. That particular weekend is here, and after taking a hard look at the line-up, I have compiled a schedule of artists I personally recommend on seeing, with the possibility of hitting all the stops. Don't follow every recommendation I give, because sometimes I make mistakes (and plus this is all really based on opinion), but I hope you are inspired by my input.

    Survey Reveals How Prominent Substances Are at Music Festivals

    Survey Reveals How Prominent Substances Are at Music Festivals

    It’s officially summer, which means it’s officially music festival season. These concerts are opportunities like no other to see your favorite artists all in the same place at once. They also offer an unmatchable environment to meet people with similar music tastes, and just let loose.

    Love Music? Be Festival Ready...

    Love Music? Be Festival Ready...

    The sun is shining (sometimes), the rain has gone (every so often), and the cider cans are out (yeah, boy). Glastonbury is around the corner, and it’s festival season alright. If this is your first rodeo though, there are a lot of things to get to grips with. So what are the rookie mistakes you should look to avoid? Well let me tell you.

    Ariana Grande - Fourth Woman to Headline for Coachella 2019

    Ariana Grande - Fourth Woman to Headline for Coachella 2019

    Ariana Grande has made headlines with her single "Thank u, next" streamed by millions since it was released in November and now she will be the fourth female to ever headline Coachella 2019. And this number itself is somewhat of a systematic issue on Coachella's part, along with other major music festivals all around the world that spotlight more female artists that are worthy of having a headlining spot.

    The Magic of EDM Music

    The Magic of EDM Music

    Raving truly is a universe of possibility. Despite what you might’ve heard, the wonder of going to a rave or music festival doesn’t necessarily lie in the drugs you take, or which DJ's are playing, but rather the unity and oneness that exists throughout the spirits of so many people collaborating their feelings and impulses together. And boy, is it infectious!

With demand far outweighing the capacity, tickets are snatched up within minutes, leaving many people with a feeling that I, myself have experienced, and never want to experience again.

    Bestival

    Bestival

    This time 9 months ago I told myself 2018 would be the year I throw myself into every new experience and opportunity I am offered. Admittedly, this hasn’t always worked out in my favour, with my main experience being the consequences that come with saying yes to absolutely everything and the realisation that this probably all stems from my deep rooted fear of missing out. Despite this, rewind to a month ago, when I was sat with some friends and listening in to their excitement about an upcoming festival, my "FOMO" came into play. Three hours later I had called work in a blind panic and miraculously booked holiday for less than three weeks time, somewhat a miracle when working in retail, drained my bank account to cover the cost of a ticket, and called my family to let them all know I would be taking a hiatus and would not be available to be booked for any family events from August 2 – August 6.
