An American Music Festival Posted by on Aug 7, 2018 in Culture, Travel

Going to music festivals is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. It’s so much fun camping out with friends for a few days, going to see live music and enjoying all the other fun activities. Some people may not realize this, but there’s a lot more happening at a music festival other than music! There’s art, games, food, shopping, and so much more.

An American Music Festival

Summer Camp Music Festival is one of my favorites.

Join me for a little video tour of “An American Music Festival” to get a closer look:

“Music festivals are a big part of American culture, especially in the summer. Tens of thousands of people come and set up camp for the weekend. If you forget anything, you can visit the general store. There are many other vendors selling a variety of things. Here, you can shop for clothing, jewelry, art, hula hoops, and so much more. Of course, there’s lots of delicious food as well.

You can buy the merchandise from your favorite band, or you can just tye-dye your own shirt. During the day, some people chill out in hammocks. Some try to stay cool and get some shade, while others just want to boogie down.

There’s a field day here, where you can join a team and play fun games like twister. Or you can just toss the bean bags with a few friends. You can learn about permaculture in this garden, and join a workshop to hear more.

It might rain a little, but that means you get to enjoy a beautiful rainbow.

There are plenty of places to sit down and relax. You can also shop for some original artwork. You might even get to try some delicious craft beer for free during Happy Hour.

Finally, the sun goes down and the moon comes up. There’s a lot to do at night at a music festival. You can see the bands, as well as live artists painting some incredible pictures and glass blowers hard at work.

It’s a very colorful place, with plenty of neon lights. Go for a walk, and who knows what you might find? You might end up in this funky swing set, or in a group spinning poi. Wind down by the campfire, and then walk back to your tent with friends and talk about the awesome day you just had.”
