Part of the reason I want to go, is this idea, however infantile or juvenile it sounds, is the idea that going to a festival can change your life. That seeing a band can change your life, that one night or 3 days and nights of music, can alter your worldview. A moment where everything makes sense, where the outside world doesnt exist and its just the music and thousands of your closest friends.
Its not all that crazy, because its happened several times to me, seeing mindblowing life changing live shows, but it seems like with the large amount of bands that attend these shows, the probability of this would be hightenend. I have only attended standard shows, 1 or two opening bands and then the headliner. What appeals to me about festivals and coachella is that there usually is 20 bands worth seeing and many more, who you dont know, but would most likely be worth checking out.
After attending coachella do you feel different? Changed?
