Music Festivals & Parties

by | Jul 27, 2015

San and I are music festival junkies and travel around the world based on which music festival we want to attend and where. In fact, this is how we met each other many years back when we were dancing in a PsyTrance music festival in Thailand! In 2016, we attended eight music festivals in different countries. In 2017, we have attended only 3 so far. Needless to say, our favorite travel souvenir is our collection of music festival bands.

Here’s the thing – we don’t just attend any music festival. In fact, we will NEVER attend festivals like Tomorrowland and Coachella because they are overly commercialized. We pick smaller festivals where organizers make an effort to reduce the visitors’ carbon footprints. Environment friendly is the way to go!

Our preferred music genre for music festivals is psychedelic music. From psychedelic rock to psychedelic trance, we like it all. We enjoy forest psytrance, dark psytrance, Hi Tech.. but can also enjoy ambient trance when we’re in Yoga mood.
