Back in high school and college I was really into music. During this time, we would actually go to the store and buy a CD or get a burned copy from a friend unlike today where everything is downloaded! Some of my favorite bands back then were Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Dave Matthews Band and U2 among many others.
I used to also really love going to concerts although I’m not really into that kind of thing anymore. I couldn’t see spending money on a concert unless it was for a few select bands and even then I’d have to really think about it.
Back in college many summers were filled with attending concerts, especially a couple of music festivals. I used to love spending long days at packed venues like Randall’s Island (in NYC) hearing lots of great music with friends.
The two festivals that I had attended were Lollapalooza and HORDE Festival. Both events featured artists performing on multiple stages and traveled around the country to various cities. Lollapalooza still exists after a reboot and only plays a couple of shows per year, HORDE’s last show was in 1998.
I can’t say that I’m really interested in concerts anymore but memories of those music festivals still stand out.
