If you’re a Millennial, chances are, you’ve attended some sort of music festival. And if you haven’t, you should, because they are basically euphoric wonderlands. Although, the cost of an event adds up, you can not put a price tag on complete and utter happiness, boo! I’ve legit cried happy tears in the middle of sets (I know, dramatic.) But honestly, aside from traveling, festivals are where I’ve felt the most alive. There is this indescribable rush of adrenaline that takes over your body and you just become one with the crowd and the music.
This topic may be taboo to some, but I’ve heard time and time again that people only enjoy festival culture because of the party favors, (look it up on Urban Dictionary if you don’t get the reference) but that’s not always the case.
I’ve chosen to abstain from the goodies, because I tweak TF out on just caffeine…so to prevent any hot messes, I’d rather not indulge. Alls to say, you can still have goood vibezzz, sober-ishhh.
Sober at a music festival…WHATTT, you don’t say? Welllllll, not exactly. The pregame and beer gardens keep me going. Your girl just gotta’ stay hydrated (you know what I’m shhhaying) and she good! Oh, and lots of sleep & water.
Although I don’t think that drugs define festival culture, I do believe, there is this societal pressure to dabble. But as with all things, to each his own and if it works for you, God bless! But all I’m saying is it can be done without it and my experiences have been just as magical 🙂
Either way, it is undeniable how infectious the good vibes are. I’ve literally met some of my closest friends at festivals. I mean, there are hundreds of thousands of people, together in one place, all looking to get litty. Whether you’re about to pass out or sober Sally, you are guaranteed an experience of a lifetime. I know I can’t wait to be frolicking around in the desert!
