The vibe of a music festival lights a tiny flame inside every attendee, a flame of happiness, anxiety, excitement all at once – it is exactly this vibe, and tiny flame that brings all the festival goers together, year after year, through rain and sunshine; making the festival what it is.Anyone who has ever been to a festival will instantly identify the feeling, even if it’s not in those exact words – the addictive adrenaline rush, is an experience that is unique every time you go through it, and no it’s not as good as the drug addled high, it’s better. What’s not to like? You meet people who you normally wouldn’t have, listen to your favourite kind of music, or be discovering a new kind of music/band and making treasure troves of memories that will last you a lifetime!But if there are any of you, who still need convincing, here are 2 solid ways in which a music festival changes your life –
It changes how you see the world
The power of music is amazingly important to each of our individual experiences, coupled with an enormous social gathering where all sorts of people from all walks of life have come to celebrate music together; it becomes a force unmatched by anything else.Music releases dopamine in our brains, which is the feel-good hormone that gives you all the happy and excited feels every time your favourite song comes on.Every music festival is basically, this dopamine high, magnified on an individual and group level while jamming to hits in a beautiful environment, there really is nothing else left in the world that could ever top this feeling!
Festivals foster togetherness
We as people are gifted with the ability to sync with each other, as well as the music pumping through our environments.When we connect with the people and the music around us, all of our lives become a movie. It’s among the most ecstatic feelings that we can feel in this lifetime, and music festivals are all about creating more of this happy feeling!There’s a whole lot more festivals than just blasting loud amps and drugged hipsters raging their days away.During the music festival experience, you’ll probably want to wrap up listening to one of your favourite musicians or bands perform their set; but then you’ll also be left out in the open, with a massive crowd around you, in all directions and zero plans for the next few hours – but that is exactly when the music will suddenly hit you; a distant drum beat may pick you up and carry you to its stage, or a soft electric guitar from hundreds of feet away will grab the attention of you and your friends.
It’s time to disconnect and experience one of the most incredible events of your lifetime. Head to a music festival, and have your life changed. 🙂
