It’s summer, y’all! As we all know, summer is indisputably the best season for many reasons including but not exclusive to: Barbeques, fireworks, summer fragrances, and having a go-to excuse for anything stupid. “I quit my job, dyed my hair blonde and am going on a hang gliding tour of Europe. What? It’s summer!” But the best thing about this season, by far, is that it’s the season of music festivals! Days upon days of live music, friends, and sun. I’m smiling just thinking about it.
Your favorite music festival says a lot about you, and I’m here to break it down for you.

If you weren’t able to make it down to Manchester, Tennessee this year, don’t worry. You can still check out the sights and sounds of Bonnaroo on NPR. Their festival pages feature photos and live concert recordings of artists like The xx, Regina Spektor, She & Him, The Gossip, The National, The Flaming Lips, The Dead Weather, Melvins, LCD Soundsystem and tons more. We highly recommend that you check it out.

“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?
