The 2012 Summer Music Festival Season is almost upon us!!!
Are you ready? Do you know where you will be going? And who you will be listening to?? Do you even care this summer???
I LOVE the summer music season…usually! This year maybe not so much.
“Summer outdoor music festivals offer plentiful listening opportunities, fresh air and a chance to catch up with festival-only friends.
“The idea of being able to camp and share an experience, and a living environment – you end up creating these friendships that are very intense,” said Dan DeWayne, co-founder of the 16-year-old California WorldFest in Grass Valley. “You spend more time (with festival friends) than with your best friend.”
A festival friendship “is very leveling,” DeWayne added. “No one cares what you do with your outside life – what car you drive or what you do for a living.”
At festivals, musical affinity and/or discovering new acts matter more.”
