Music festivals can serve so many functions.
Music festivals are such a giant deal for this era. They’re actually cool as a result of it’s like a live performance for all of the bands your love directly, all in the identical place. You don’t have to purchase one million totally different live performance tickets and run out of cash making an attempt to see all of your favourite artists individually. You get to purchase one ticket and see them with all your mates, and oftentimes you get to see different bands that you just wouldn’t usually pay to see — and who is aware of? You would possibly find yourself loving them too.
As of late many music festivals happen over a number of days, often a weekend (if not two). Occasions like Firefly pageant and Electrical Daisy Carnival can final upwards of three days, whereas the most important music festivals on the earth such because the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Competition and Extremely Music Competition happen two weekends in a row. All music festivals that final a number of days provide a whole lot of various bands, singers and DJs all through the times, and folks make it some extent to design totally different outfits to correspond with the themes for every of the times.
It’s humorous how all these music festivals are form of like a modern-day Woodstock (which really is getting a re-boot itself, with the brand new Woodstock 2020 going down in August 2020). The unique Woodstock pageant happened in 1969 and attracted greater than 400,000 attendees. It was notorious for the theme of "peace and music", and is the premise for many of those modern-day festivals, now internet hosting upwards of 420,000 folks in a weekend.
Some festivals have themes to them as nicely, like nation music festivals, rock festivals, digital music festivals and so forth. In relation to shopping for tickets, you sometimes should buy them not less than few months forward of time (for the larger festivals). The pricing can even differ primarily based on the kind of live performance you’re attending. Bigger festivals like Coachella, Firefly and Austin Metropolis Limits can cost over two and 300 dollars per ticket.
