Well guys, I made it through my first music festival. Outside Lands was this weekend in Golden Gate Park, and Jordan and I spent Sunday afternoon into the evening rocking along with Foals, Hall & Oats, Dawes, Vampire Weekend and Red Hot Chili Peppers. I had a great time. Key to my enjoyment of the festival were a few things. First, we tested the waters with a one-day pass, rather than diving head first into the 72-hour-long mosh pit of music. Six hours of festival-ing turned out to be a good amount for me. I also dressed in layers so I could enjoy the nice afternoon but stick it out for the Chili Peppers once the fog rolled in, and roll in it did. We also ate our way through three of the food tents, sipped some local beer, sat down when we felt like it, danced when we felt like it, and generally just got our hipster on.
Here’s a vine video of the fun. Also, this gratuitous video of some tweaked out festival dancing.
How was your weekend? Have you ever been to a music festival?
