Music festivals are something that everyone should try and something that really helps you connect with humanity and people with similar interests. Somewhat of a new development in the world of music, sort of, festivals are gaining popularity, especially among the younger crowd. Basically every large metropolitan city in the United States is home to at least one music festival, which can make it difficult to choose which one to attend.
The first thing you will want to look for is one that has the type of music that you like. Even though festivals usually support a wide array of genres, there are some that are geared mainly toward a single genre. If you don’t like electronic music, you likely won’t want to attend a music festival.
Location location location. Since there are so many music festivals to choose from, it would be wise for beginners to choose one that is close to where they live. In my experience, most require a bit of driving, but I can tell you for a fact that the mileage adds up quickly. Once you have attended a few, you can then begin to see if there are any festivals worth attending further away.
In addition, you will want to make sure that you choose one that fits with your preferred style of vacation. Many festivals are held in the city and require a hotel room, while others are camping only. If you don’t like camping, there is a chance you will not like a festival that requires you to be a bit more rugged.
