Eikon: The Fest 15, Gainesville Rock City

FESTsign.MirandaNathanson.jpg

The Fest is not just a concert, The Fest is a community.

When I first came to Gainesville, Florida five years ago for school, I never imagined this little town could play host to the biggest family reunion the world has ever seen. Every year, more than 350 bands and thousands of fans descend on the city for three PBR fueled days of music, friendship, comedy, and even wrestling.

Fest is a place where the person next to you in the pit automatically becomes your best friend. It’s a place where you can discover your new favorite band and have a beer with them right after their set. I’ve never felt more comfortable and connected to those around me at a show than I do when I step into a Fest venue, and it’s an experience I recommend to any wayward music fan looking for a place to belong.

I had the absolute pleasure of being part of the team documenting this year’s Fest-ivities and was able to work alongside bands and fans who had come from all over the world to take part. Here are just a few of my favorite moments from the best 3 days of the year.

Music Midtown: Summer’s Not Over Yet

mm16-admat-v23-1

If you’re just not ready to wake up and smell the freshly sharpened pencils of a new school year, there’s one more way to hold onto the summer. Atlanta’s Music Midtown may be one of the final fests of the season, but it boasts a lineup so incredible you’re sure to forget all about decorating your dorm room.

If seeing Joe Jonas’ infectiously catchy band DNCE on the same stage as emo pop heroes Twenty One Pilots isn’t enough to knock you out of your back to school blues, the lure of catching the ever elusive The Killers should seal the deal. The festival will also host Euterpe faves, Kesha, Alabama Shakes, Chvrches, and The Coathangers.

We hope to rock out with all of you under the shadow of the Atlanta skyline next month! For more information, visit musicmidtown.com.
