While attending this festival with some friends, I sought out to discover the appeal of music festivals for fellow music lovers like myself. As music is constantly progressing among millennials with genres like rap and EDM, I asked others, what is your genre preference? And is this preference an important deciding factor to which music festivals you attend?
Megan, 21, from Charlotte, North Carolina, records one of her favorite pop duos, Oh Wonder, as they play a slow piano medley called "All We Do." She describes the chills on her arms as her hair begins to stand up. "I think music has the capability to produce emotion in some people. And I also think those people are really lucky. Music is such a beautiful thing and to have it touch you in a special way is a gift."
Devin (left) and Cody (right), both 22 from Knoxville, Tennessee, have been counting down the days till arriving to Atlanta to witness "the glorifying vocals and dance moves of the vivacious Bruno Mars." While they came mainly for Bruno, they describe themselves as "fest heads". When asked for a definition, Cody simply states, "A fest head is someone who lives for this sh**!"
