TIS' THE SEASON... Festival Season, That Is!

It's a beautiful day here in Washington, PA, which obviously means its a great day for some fun electronic music!  Personally, my SoundCloud likes are filled to the brim with hour-long live sets from music festivals such as last month's Ultra Music Festival in Miami, FL and last weekend's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA.  My current favorite is Louis the Child's set from Coachella, which you can find here: https://soundcloud.com/jwaang/louis-the-child-coachella-2016


I don't know about you, but in the winter months I'm constantly checking festival websites and social media accounts for lineup announcements.  Last year, I attended my first two-day festival: Moonrise Festival in Baltimore, MD.  I saw some of my favorite EDM artsists such as LOUDPVCK, What So Not, and (my favorite by far) Dillon Francis.  This year, I am lucky enough to be attending Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas (pictured above - yes really) AND Lollapalooza in Chicago!  However, the point of this blog entry is not to brag about how incredible my summer is about to be - its to remind anyone who may be reading this that spending your hard earned money on music festivals isn't frivolous or wasteful.  Paying to attend festivals like these is paying for an incredible experience and amazing memories.  I believe that spending money on experiences is a lot more meaningful than buying material things, and that's why I encourage anyone who might be on the fence about attending a festival this summer to bite the bullet, spend the money, and have the time of their life for a few days.

Tune in to WNJR Monday nights at 10 PM to hear me freak out about all the incredible artists I'll be seeing this summer at EDCLV and Lolla and make fun of Jess.
