Ever since I fell in love with the beauty of electronic music in 2012, I have been obsessed with the festival scene and all that it has to offer. I originally found Festival Squad through Facebook and upon hearing more about it from my boyfriend, I was very eager and hoping to get involved. With this opportunity, I am excited to share my experiences at the events and any tips for future attendees. My favorite aspect of festivals is the ability to let go of your worries and express yourself in any way that you’d like. The creativity is always booming, clearly evident in the outfits, flow toys, and dance in general. These events have brought a love of dance into my life for which I will always be grateful for and they allow me to express it with beautiful music as support. In terms of the future, I hope to cover a large scale festival like Lightning in a Bottle because there are so many inspiring things to write about it and I would love to share the experience with others. I am currently pursuing a Biomedical Engineering degree at Arizona State University but I try to lead my life with balance, always allowing myself to attend a good show or festival when it arises. I spend most of my free time hanging out in my hammock, hooping, or coincidentally, looking for the next festival I am going to attend.
