“How about a cheer for all those bad girls/And all the boys that play that rock and roll/They love it like you love Jesus/It does the same thing to their souls” — Tom Petty
Music festivals can be compared to something of a religious exchange. Really. Just think about it. How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to your music gods in return for a blissful, out-of-this-world live spectacle? Would you fry yourself under the unforgiving midsummer sun for hours on end? Would you brave the untold terrors of the port-a-pottys (yikes), or the critical gazes of ever-so-ironic hipster brigade?
