As a crazed music fan and avid show-goer, I was looking forward to my first local music festival since moving to Miami two years ago. South Florida doesn’t see a ton of good artists come through (yeah, I said it), so I was looking forward to the sick line-up Riptide put together. The cool thing about South Florida is that despite the festival being in December, we could rock alongside our favorite bands in jean shorts and flipflops right on Fort Lauderdale Beach under a full moon.
Float Fest is coming up! The festival that combines everything Texans love, floating down rivers and music is finally upon us. This is such a unique festival just because you have the ability to float the river pre-festing.
Whether you’re heading to the beach for Hangout Fest or the campgrounds at Bonnaroo, you have to prep for festivals. Here are some of out favorite things to keep in our bags.
What happens when you get Migos, Lil Uzi Vert , Gucci Mane , Snow Tha Product and Chance the Rapper all in the span of 10 hours? You get JMBLYA. Pronounced just like the dish “jambalaya”, JMBLYA is just that, an eclectic hip-hop/EDM mix of musical meat and veggies that somehow tastes so good to your ears. While I have my issues with the way that some aspects of the festival played out, overall I feel satisfied. Not as full as I should have felt after I left, but satisfied. Instead of focusing solely on the musical acts of the festival, I’m going to go through some logistics and overall feel of the show.
Festival season is like a 4-5 month Christmas that comes every year complete with a new wardrobe, road trips, and magical moments. It is beautiful and stressful and nothing gives me more joy and panic attacks. We’ve rounded up the best festival gear from our favorite shops.
Sound on Sound is the cool kid of the Austin festivals. If every basic you know went to ACL, you were there at Sound on Sound.
I think a better question would be what didn’t go wrong with the meadows? I mean seriously this was the worst festival I have ever been too. I will say this is the festival’s first year but they are owned by Founder’s Entertainment, the same company that also puts on The Governor’s Ball Musical Festival that was founded in 2011.
