The Upcoming Music Festival Season




I love to watch the live streams of various music festivals. Aside from Spotify and Jools Holland, this is how I often discover new artists ... I am drawn to alternative music that doesn't easily fit into one of the traditional, boxed categories. I'm also not a big fan of radio because of it's intrinsically limited music genres and formats  ... Often 30-40 songs on rotation (I'm being generous.).

Last weekend, I caught some of Ultra's Miami Music Festival, which was brilliantly timed during spring break at a number of colleges. I was fascinated with the promo videos (shown below) of their numerous festivals in beautiful worldwide locations They combined the appeal of exotic travel with great music.

I enjoyed seeing how the audience jammed and connected with the DJs. I really loved seeing the diversity of the crowd and how the location's culture influenced the outfits of the attendees.

Everfest is a great comprehensive resource for anyone who is planning to go to a festival; whether it's about music, food, the arts, a holiday or some other category. This site also has sections to cater to the performers, organizers, vendors and even festival job seekers.

Happy partying!
