What do you love about a music festival? Is it just simply the music, or is it something much bigger? For me, a festival is about a collection of different factors. Though all of these factors are driven by the music itself, the community that is brought together at a music festival is something every music fan should get to experience. Being surrounded by peers who are equally passionate about music, equally sweaty and drunk, and equally exhausted always makes for an interesting, memorable time.
With more of these events than ever before, there's no reason anyone who considers themselves a music junkie (i.e. anyone that finds themselves on this site) shouldn't make a festival or two this summer.
