Holy Ship 2019

In June of last year, Holy Ship released the lineup for their next round of sailings, which were scheduled for January 2019. The second I saw that Griz was on the lineup for the second sailing, I knew I had to go. I contacted my usual festival crew and only one of my friends came [...]

ACL 2018

This year's Austin City Limits (ACL) marked my twelfth year attending the festival. The first year I went, I was barely thirteen years old. My father wrote a note excusing me from class Friday afternoon because of a "family emergency" and went with me all three days. Although I didn't stay with him the whole [...]

Seismic 2018

In my last article, I mentioned I would be returning to Carson Creek Ranch this September, this time for Seismic Dance Event. However, Mother Nature intervened and the festival was moved to the Travis County Exposition Center. Initially, I was disappointed about the venue change, but I decided I would rather forgo Carson Creek Ranch [...]

Waterloo 2018

With the absence of Euphoria Music Festival this year (R.I.P. Euphoria), three new events sprung into existence to fill the void at Carson Creek Ranch. The first was Anjunadeep Open Air in June, which I wasn't able to attend but did hear great feedback on. The second was Waterloo Music Festival, which I attended this past [...]

Electric Forest 2018

My official review can be read below or viewed on Noiseporn’s website here. For the second year in a row, I returned [...]

Freestyle Sessions 2018

At the beginning of 2018, I set a personal goal of attending one of Bassnectar’s four curated events this year. The first curated event was Spring Gathering, which took place at the end of March. Since it occurred the same month as Okeechobee and BUKU, I decided that Spring Gathering wouldn’t be the one. However, [...]

Backwoods 2018

“I got shot in the head four times with a marshmallow gun last night because a woman didn’t think I was real.” Those words filtered through the trees from the mouth of a security guard as I walked away from the Globe Theater Sunday afternoon. After spending three full days at Backwoods, hearing that statement [...]
