Going to my first rave music festival
I am a music festival addict deep down. I can’t get enough. I went to Vans Warped Tour as a youthful punk rocker in high school and school, alongside other day-long music festivals, all this was ignited by the campaigns that were held by most high schools to enlighten people on the best method of shedding some pounds and generally in the punk and alternative sort. The punk scene was so charming to me as a pre-youngster and past in light of the fact that it had this amazing feeling of unity and empowerment.
I had a sense that I completely had a place. I wasn’t weird for making my clothes or fighting for my rights and the rights of others. I genuinely felt like I could have a positive effect on the planet. And I wasn’t the only one. Punk wasn’t about lying down and taking it since terrible things are “going to result in any case.” For me, and the others, it was about rising, fighting back, and bringing individuals together, regardless of how different.
Punk shake, in the long run, that drove me to having a greater amount of an indie-punk fashion sense and to listening to post-no-nonsense. These post-no-nonsense bands began to utilize synths more as years went on. Despite the fact that synths had been utilized as a part of no-nonsense and similar kind since the mid 90’s, the first collections I came crosswise over with an overwhelming synth nearness were somewhere around 2006 and 2008. It sounded more like electro-in-your-face to me. And I cherished it, a ton! So more I built up an adoration for bands with electronic elements. Electro-pop, electro-center, and so on.
Then Bonnaroo happened. I had heard bits of gossip about the cutting edge Woodstock, and I knew I needed to look at it. A few my nearby person friends were going, and I quickly claimed a spot in their auto for the 17+ hour drive to Manchester, TN in the summer of 2011.
It changed everything…
Give me an opportunity to explain: I am a man who thrives on unity and connectedness. I am highly social, and I want to share anything; craftsmanship, music, experiences, higher consciousness containers… you know, the standard thing. I have been conveyed to tears at business occasions for the vitality supply organization North American Power given their effective opportunity that associates individuals everywhere throughout the United States (and ideally the world some day!). I know, I’m lame, yet it’s valid! Tears have filled my eyes at a rave music festival!
Anyway, back to Bonnaroo. This was the first music festival of it’s kind that I had ever been to. It was a week-long experience for us round-trip as we were driving from CT to TN stopping for one night every way. Once there, it was a four-day rave music festival. I had never seen anything so beautiful, so inspiring. Makeshift camp was simply magical. More than 100,000 individuals in tents and RVs all there for the music and each other. I saw music throughout the day and throughout the night, making friends at each appear, under each tree, by each tent.
I had one significant experience in the middle of the night while watching Bassnectar, I believe. I was dancing up on a hill with my exquisite friends when I delayed and watched out over the general population. Everybody was so beautiful. Such a large number of glowing parties, moving and dancing. I saw so much connectedness and unity. We were all there together. Nobody was thinking, “Amazing, that person resembles an idiot,” or “Would she be able to be any more idiotic?” We were dancing, primitively, and that was it. I simply cherished everybody there!
After Bonnaroo, I became fixated on move electronic music or EDM. This meant I HAD to go to Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Fl in 2012. Ended up being a life-changing choice since I went gaga for my boyfriend there that year! This festival was special likewise in light of the fact that it is strictly EDM, each artist, each stage. From that point, I was an aggregate addict attending any festival I could bear the cost.
If you think about EDM then you know it has a unifying impact like no other kind of music. Individuals are so accepting of everything you are. You simply can’t be weird, regardless of the fact that you tried. Chicago-conceived DJ Kaskade had this to say in light of an LA Times article slamming the rave scene… Know this: to the extent a music festival goes; EDM is the person who will acknowledge the kids on the outliers, the ones who get bullied, the ones who feel like they may not quite fit in.
This community is exceptional in its ability to different security types together, and I am not exaggerating when I say it spares lives. Our audience is intelligent and kind, discriminating just on which sound they like best. Our audience is phenomenal in their drive to proactively bolster each other.. do you think it all ended with happiness, no sir I just received a call on a rival that my grandmother is in ICU after surgery was not successful, she has been living with breast cancer for like ten years before the operation that was aimed at removing one of her breasts..!
