The one question I get asked the most is, “Why do you go to festivals so much??” There’s a very short response to that but today I wanted to share the longer version... 4 years ago I got invited to my first show. It was in a small club with no more than 40 people inside. (R.I.P. AMP) I remember wandering off by myself into the crowd and meeting strangers, who in that moment, made me feel more accepted and loved than some of my life long friends ever had. I felt overwhelmed with emotions by this because the environment I grew up in held such a high standard to how you’re supposed to act and the way that you are perceived by others. In that moment I felt care-free, happy, & at peace. That night I felt a connection with the music they played in a way that I had never connected to anything else before it (@ghastly & @lookas...Ilysm). Going to festivals & shows makes me feel like a kid again. Care-free, no fear of judgement, it’s my sanctuary. This community has brought to me the most amazing individuals in my life who I now hold as close to me as my own family. I learned to love & accept myself and in return, how to offer the same to others.
So very long story short...this goes so far beyond just the music for me. I’ve become the truest version of myself from attending these events & I plan on going to them for many many years to come. Can’t wait to crash the party when it’s my grandkids going. ❤️😉

It’s a strange thing to lose people that we were once so close to. But it’s a part of life... Remember that you were able to be happy before certain relationships or friendships even began and came to their end. That’s that silver lining and hope that you’re more capable of cultivating your own happiness than you know.
