In two weeks I leave for my final festival of the year, Voodoo Music and Arts Experience. This year I was blessed to attend Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Forecastle Festival, Southern Brewers Festival, 3 Sisters Bluegrass Festival and Fly Free Fest. Trying the “new to me” festivals such as Forecastle and soon-to-be Voodoo Experience has got me wondering what is in store for me in 2015.
Bonnaroo ’15 will be my ninth and sometimes for a brief moment I consider skipping a year. Honestly Bonnaroo is so massive, it’s can be a little overwhelming compared to festivals such as Fly Free Fest. I quickly snap out of my delusion and realize I would go insane if I weren’t on the farm that weekend in June. Bonnaroo is my first festival love. She was there for me before I was even aware of all these others. I’ve created so many beautiful memories with her, and she has introduced me to so many friends.
Another reason I know I’ll never leave Bonnaroo. This damn recap video gives goosebumps and makes me teary eyed.
But remember, Concert Hoppers monogamy is not the way to be when it comes to music festivals. Be very polyamorous and embrace every festival like it’s one of your many beloved wives. Be safe.
See you on the farm in 238 days!
