  • 17. Used my brother's invalid Drivers License (had a whole punched through it) to get into a Skrillex performance. The security guard said "This is invalid... I'm not gonna give you a wristband for alcohol (cause my brother was 21) but I'll let you in"
    Little did he know all I wanted was to get in LUL xD

    My brother was also about 10 people behind me in line and got in after me xD

  • I was 16, and it was in Brisbane (Australia). It was a concert-festivalish gathering (lol) called Good Vibrations 09'.

    I had a lot of fun! I was with my host family's older daughter. She was in college and got tickets from her campus. Normally you have to be 18+ but somehow I got in.
    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Anyway, to reiterate, I had a blast! The crowd experience was very exciting. I'm sure I wasn't the only underage person there, so I didn't feel too deceitful. Drinks were cheap, food was greasey, and toilets were disgusting. But the overall music and mood of the park was great.

    Oh, Calvin Harris (Scottish DJ who dated Taylor Swift) was there too, though at that time he was in a band and looked a bit different than today (lol).

  • 14, I don't remember what it was called haha. No Doubt and Blink 182 played a set one of the days tho, I remember because I was right up against the stage and when Gwen Stefani was giving people high fives I grabbed her hand and didn't let go so she gave me this startled look and jerked it away. I was an asshole as a teenager smh

  • Never been to one, and this is why:

    The closest I've come is one-off outdoor concerts, or county fairs, or other little events like that. I did once work security at a gay pride event, if that counts?

      Yeah it kinda counts

    • Assuming they let you back in... and if it rains that much, it would take several days of bright sunshine for the ground to be dry (and even then it'll still be all chewed up). Camping in bad weather is miserable enough without being surrounded by drugged up idiots and trying to go and watch bands and DJs.

    • Hahahah true😂

  • Warped Tour (i think 1999 maybe 2000). i was in high school. so much fun and felt so liberated for a day. even when i got dropped on my head crowd surfing during green day's set and blackout.

  • I haven't really been to a true musical festival, just some concerts and parties. I would love to go somewhere though, next year probably since it's not at my list of priorities... 🙃

  • Haven't been to and probably never will. I hate crowds, loud noices and am terrified of getting squeezed to death, since I'm really small. And most of the music festivals cost 100€+ and have usually only one artist I would like to see, so just rather pay the same amount for a concert for that band than to waste money on shitty performers just to see a short show of your favorite.

  • The Feast of San Gennaro, in Little Italy. I was seven. I went with my parents, my sister and my best friend. I ate a zeppole and won a stuffed animal.

  • I have never been to a festival and I never want to go to one. Too many people acting crazy. I can't deal with it. But I did live in Miami for high school where Ultra tickets sold out in.5 seconds of being on the market. Kids would be online in the middle of class trying to get tickets. They were way too expensive for a festival where people get high, wasted, sexually assaulted, and also trampled to their death.
