Music is something that has been a part of my life for quite some time now. It gets you through the ups and downs, takes you on an emotional roller coaster of sorts. I do not just stick to one genre I love anything that sounds good and achieves the mood it is trying to portray.
To me it’s about more than liking something because your friends do or you were raised listening to it. I like to expand my horizons and always keep an open mind to new and old music. Bob Marley once said “One thing about music when it hits you feel no pain”. I live by that, music is a way to let go of the past or future and live in the present.

EDM(Electronic Dance Music)
Electronic Dance Music as of late has turned out to be one of the biggest movements since Woodstock. Millions of kids, young adults and heck even some of your parents are hoping on the band wagon of this new scene. It’s the kind of thing where people from all kinds of races, nationalities, ages and even parts of the world can come together for the one thing they all have in common…
By definition a Music Festival is an entertainment event featuring a number of musicalperformers or bands ofa certain genre or centered on a theme. But in reality it is more than that. It is a gathering of creative minds from all over where people meet and converge for a common purpose. To share, communicate and learn from one another. It is based on a central theme dedicated to Arts and Music. And that alone is enough to bring hundreds of thousands of people to one place for one amazing weekend.

In conclusion it’s all about the music for me. Your supposed to live your life and chase what makes you happy. It’s because of the music I’ve listen to and the concerts I’ve attended that makes me who I am today. I hope to turn my education into a career for promoting and coordinating these amazing events. It’s a career based on passion and constantly evolving materials and followers. So let loose a bit go enjoy the world but make sure you do so listening to your favorite song.
