Maybe it's the music (read: loud electronic music by the best EDM artists in the world). Maybe it's the art. Maybe it's the friends. The answer will be different for everyone of us and for every music fest. In fact it seems that the entire US music festival experience can depend on your willingness to embrace it. That's why we love a good festival camp out where we're all forced to relinquish control over our everyday privileges and have to rough it with our friends. Plus, it's one of the best ways to stay off the roads after a long day and night of partying. In fact, I think music festivals in the USA should have mandatory overnight camping for everyone's safety.
Next time you decide to search for the best music festivals in the world make sure you pick them for the right reason. While lineups matter there really is a lot more to consider. It's up to all of us to look into the host's history and make sure they have a reputation for safe and sustainable music festivals in the US. The same applies for any festival in other parts of the world.
Your decision to attend and participate really does help shape the future of these events in America and across the globe.
Please party responsibly. Festival always. And remember to listen to the best electronic music every day.
Peace and love,
Best Music Fest
