Electronic music festivals are, in my opinion, the best type of festival you could ever spend your time at. There are so many things to love, from the atmosphere to the drinks, and especially the people! It would actually be hard for me to say what I think the best thing is, but I could definitely give you a list of the things I like best.
In the summer of 2016, I decided to go to my first electronic music festival. It was amazing! Electronic Dance Music boasts some of the best beats on this planet, and I loved every tune that came on. It’s pretty obvious that if you’re at an electronic music festival you probably love electronic music, but believe me when I say it’s just a different vibe altogether compared to anything you will have experienced. I know I felt that way. It made me chuckle thinking about the DJ at my usual club frantically trying to find the next house song that we’d feel forced to dance to. Electronic music festivals are so different, with all the different genres and songs they go through, there’s bound to be something for everyone.
There’s something really special about being in the same place as thousands of people who all appreciate the same music as you, and the fact that pretty much all of them are ready to start furiously dancing at any second just made the night even better. The atmosphere was one of a kind and everyone was smiling the whole night through. The more I go on about it the more I can’t wait for the next fest I go to! That’s another great thing about electronic music festivals, there’s so many of them to choose from! Doesn’t matter where you’re from or who you want to see headlining, there’ll be something for you.
I’ve got to admit though; I’d probably have to say that the inclusivity of the electronic music community is what makes electronic music fests stand tall above the rest. From the whole ‘European Dance Music’ community to the techno and synth lovers in the USA, electronic music just invites you straight in for a rave and a good time. And boy can we have a good time. The niche aura you get from the community is what first got me to consider going to a festival because it seemed so unique but so open to everyone at the same time. I’m so glad I decided to go as it turned out to be one of the best nights of my life; I made friends there that I will never forget.
I hope that, if you have never been to one before, I’ve said enough to persuade you to find one and give it a visit. I will never regret going to my first electronic music festival, and I’m happy to say it wasn’t my last. Don’t forget to branch out and have fun. We might just bump into each other.
