I want to start off by saying that I visited quite a few big festivals. On this occasion I'm not going to name them, but I can tell you that those festivals were in Germany, Italy and Croatia.
Throughout my rave - journey I went to all kinds of different electronic music parties, to finally find the music that suits my ears the best. By that I mean all the different techno -tech house-house genres that are out there. By experiencing different music genres, I also experienced different clubs, venues, open airs, festivals.. I'm glad I did it. It got me to analyze things and to learn the important components needed to enjoy the party to the fullest.

It also brought me to today's 5 reasons why I don’t do festivals, boiler rooms or similar events.
All big and popular events are armed to their teeth with security. There are security staff left, right and center, just picture them right now in your head flying around like flies flying close to the shit. I am fully aware that it is a big gathering and we do need somebody who's going to keep things in order and safe. However, some of them are not very welcoming.
So, my point here is - first they welcome you at the entrance. Nicely touching you and rearranging your backpack, purse or whatever you have on you. So, my mood is already slightly fucked, and I am not even inside. Don’t forget they are inside the venue also! Enough to remind you to not relax completely and to not enjoy yourself.
My experience taught me that there are a lot of people visiting these events purely because they are popular events. A lot of people just love visiting festivals. It is a thing. There are also a lot of people there just because of their friends. They are not really into this kind of music but they think "it's going to be a fun experience and the chance to hang out with my friends". So, you have a weird mix of people that doesn't always provide you with a good mood, vibe. What is an important thing, after all.
3. QUANTITY OVER QUALITY
At first, I wasn't sure if I should mention this together with point two. In a way, they are similar points but yet different. Since I'm writing MY 5 personal reasons, I think to myself, fuck it, I'm going to be brutally honest with you guys. There are just too many people there for my taste.
4. DJ THRONES
It is like an unwritten rule among festival organizations to have a huge "stage". I don't know if they are competing with each other or what? You know, like every Douche out there thinking he has the biggest one.

I guess it is wow for people to see it. I mean for those who are there for everything except music. I'm not impressed with it, find it totally unimportant.
-If I want to be impressed, I book myself a flight to see the Egyptian pyramids.-
The whole point of this magical music is that, that it is all that you need.
For this one, I want you to think about all the times you visited festivals. So, you know exactly no matter where you stand, there are always people passing by groups talking. Just like at your local Sunday food -market. No matter if there is a brand new, pricey sound system - it's just how it is at big events. You are always going to hear more people around you than music. Vice versa, clubbing where you are sure "if I continue partying for a long time, I'm going to lose 60% of my hearing while still being young".
