This past weekend, I attended my very first music festival – Outside Lands! Conveniently located in San Francisco – therefore, the easiest one for me to be somewhat spontaneous about attending (not so spontaneous because we got tickets months ago, but at least spontaneous about wanting to attend…)
I’ve never been to a music festival before so I didn’t really know what to expect, but I’m glad I went with people who knew what to do and where to go (I got lost within the first five minutes of stepping into the park) and I enjoyed listening to new music since I’m pretty bad at listening to and discovering new artists. There were a lot of people, and at some points it felt very close to being a stampede mob or something where someone got hurt. I think that’s just part of it though. Also a lot of basic people taking basic photos but hey, when at a music festival, what else are you supposed to do, right?
I think I would go again, but be a little more prepared listening to music beforehand and driving in earlier in the hopes of finding a parking spot. But, all in all, a fun experience and I’m glad I went!
