Dust off those disposable cameras, pack a backpack full of sunscreen and water, and slap on a pair of sunglasses because it’s APRIL, you guys, and that means music festivals are back in action.
Music is pretty universal – we’ve all got a song we love, an artist that reminds us strongly of our childhoods, perhaps even a live music experience that totally changed our lives. Sometimes, all of this goodness can manifest in a music festival, and we wanted to explore the roles that music festivals have played in your lives! Here’s what we learned.
In the past, 18% of you have graced Coachella with your presence, 10% at CMA, 9% at Bonnaroo, 7% at Firefly, and 4% at Essence.
Some of the festivals you guys are headed to this season include Coachella, Boston Calling, Panorama, Tortuga, Bonnaroo, Firefly, and When We Were Young.
And hey, while music festivals are centered around, well, music, there are plenty of other things to see and do. From gourmet ice cream to poke bowls to pork cubanos, festivals often bring in the best of the best when it comes to snacking in between shows. (Panorama Music Festival was even written up on Zagat last year!)
Plus, festivals love weaving in various immersive experiences to keep the fun going like photo booths, galleries, and interactive digital art experiences. Here’s what you guys enjoy at music festivals, apart from shows themselves.
But while we ARE talking about music, here are the artists making the rounds this season that have you guys making heart-eye emoji’s.
- Luke Bryan 27%
- Lady Gaga 25%
- The Weeknd 15%
- Darius Rucker 8%
- Lorde 7%
As fun and crazy as they are, music festivals STILL cannot thwart most of us social media addicts. While we assumed that most of you guys Instagram and Snapchat your way through festivals, the results were actually pretty surprising.
Are you guys attending any festivals soon, or listening to any festival artists that we missed in our post? If so, we’d love to hear about them!
