For those of you who don't know, I'm from Atlanta! Every year around September 20th or so, there's a huge two-day music festival (like more than 100,000 people huge) called Music Midtown. This year was my third year going, and let me tell you, it was the best year yet.
First of all, the lineup was amazing! We're talking Lorde, Magic Man, Eminem, John Mayer, 21 Pilots, Zac Brown Band, Bastille, Fitz and the Tantrums, and tons more. I didn't know much music by Magic Man or 21 Pilots, but after their concerts, I am in love with them!
So, I thought I'd put together a playlist of some of my favorite songs that I heard and share some of my pictures!
So this is the crowd that was behind us for Fitz and the Tantrums, Bastille, and Lorde. We were front row for those shows and we were at the same stage for 6 and a half hours! Crazy, I know. There was seriously an insane amount of people.
Can we talk about what an amazing performer Lorde is? This was definitely one of my favorite shows of the entire weekend. She was absolutely stunning and even better live than she is on the radio. The craziest part? She's 17! I'm 17 and all I've done with my life is go to school and make this blog...
So take a moment to really look at this picture. On the right is the drummer for 21 Pilots who CROWD SURFED his drum set! My friends in front of me held up the drum and some other people held a platform he stood on while he drummed. He put water on the top of his drum which was absolutely amazing to be 3 feet from.
Now take a look at the picture on the right. The lead singer CLIMBED the stage! I'm serious, it was a 40 foot tall stage or taller. He eventually got to the top and finished the song from there. It was the craziest concert I've ever been to.
Of course I wore J. Crew shorts to a music festival...
And finally, here's the lead singer of Fitz and the Tantrums, who is also an amazing performer. This weekend was absolutely amazing and crazy in the best way. I really hope I can go again next years!
Have you all been to any music festivals?
