Global Dance In The Mile High City

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of checking out Global Dance Festival in Denver. And it was a BLAST! The first day was a little chaotic for me because I had some car trouble. My trip there was supposed to be 12 hours long and of course, my car acted up. So day 1,…

Until Next Year, Bonnaroo!

I spent 114 days sharing each artist on the original Bonnaroo 2022 lineup as part of an Artist of the Day series before the festival. My love for sharing new tunes fueled this project as music has changed the course of my life for the better. The magic that I’ve found among the harmonic collision…

We’re Not Really Strangers (LIB Edition)

I’ve been struggling to write this because there are only so many words to describe the experience I had at Lightning in a Bottle this past weekend. Sentences and pictures could never paint the magic and kismet moments that LIB embodies. This festival isn’t just a music festival, the music is amazing, but it’s really…

I’ve gone every…

Struck At LIB (And Wanting More!)

I want to begin by saying that I work pretty much every festival (with the exception of Okeechobee and Electric Forest) because most festivals and raves are relatively the same. However, after working media at LIB and being struck by its uniqueness, I will undoubtedly be attending this festival for years to come. I’ve heard…

Shaky Knees Once Again Shakes Atlanta

The last weekend in April had me shook. As many of you know, both Shaky Knees and Sweetwater 420 Fest were the same weekend in Atlanta. I had a ticket to 420 Fest but was itching to hit up Shaky Knees just to see a handful of artists including King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard…

I can’t believe festivals are already underway for 2022! I kicked off my festival season with High Water, and let me tell you that this festival was definitely one for the books. The music was phenomenal with My Morning Jacket killing their Saturday set and Jack White going hard to close out Sunday. I had…

Coachella Weekend 1 Recap: Harry Styles.

Let me begin by mentioning that I (Ellie, the journalist) don’t do well in the heat. If I could opt out of being in the heat, I would take any measure within reason to avoid it. However, Coachella is the one exception. People will say what they want to say about this fancy desert festival,…

My Spooky Time at Escape Psycho Circus

Welcome back to real life! Who would’ve thought that most of us could survive EDC AND Escape Psycho Circus back to back?! There was a time when I could.  Now that my body is withered and wary from all my previous festivals, doing two festivals two weekends in a row is mentally and physically draining.…

My Experience Under the Electric Sky

Man, oh, man. Now that it has been two weeks since EDC and a week since Escape, I feel that I have finally decompressed and can write about my experiences. Now to say, I think having two back-to-back festivals is a horrible, horrible idea for me. I didn’t even have enough turn-around time to recuperate…

Shaky Knees Has Me Shook

I’m a huge fan of indie and alternative music, especially some good old rock and roll. That rush you get when an artist pulls no punches and beckons the crowd into madness is out of this world. Most of the time you can score an hour of pure bliss at a tour stop for your…

I Broke My Neck at Conrank and Hydraulix

I’m not joking when I said I broke my neck at the Conrank and Hydraulix show last weekend. I was lucky enough to check out the Iowa City show and boy, did I break my neck. I headbanged so hard that my neck was sore until at least Tuesday! While that wasn’t the most comfortable…
