Firefly Spotlight: Top Five Most Anticipated

Image
There are tons of great bands playing Firefly this year covering a wide variety of genres. Every time I look at the lineup I seem to find an artist that I either forget was playing this year or didn't even know was on the lineup. I've been thinking a lot lately about who I'm most excited to see and I think I have narrowed it down to my top five (in no particular order since that was making it way too difficult).

1. The Weeknd- I've really been enjoying his Starboy album and he was on my list of people I wanted to try and get to see this year before the lineup was dropped. I think it's going to be a great high energy show. "False Alarm" is one of my favorite songs off his new album and I can't wait to dance like crazy when that song plays.

2. The Strumbellas- If you aren't familiar with The Strumbellas you should absolutely check them out. "Spirits" is a good place to start. They have a sound that is similar to The Lumineers and I think the…

Firefly Spotlight: Attractions

In addition to all the music at nine different stages throughout The Woodlands there are many activities scattered around the site to enjoy. Here's a look at some of my favorite things to check out during the weekend.
The Thicket- Want to dance? Head on over to The Thicket! This silent disco has two DJs playing tunes non-stop. You pick up headphones when you enter and can switch between the two different stations to listen to whichever DJ is playing your favorite songs. It's also fun to take off the headphones every once in a while and just watch all the people dancing and singing without any music playing. Hidden in the trees this spot also provides good shade coverage
The Nook- Formally known as the Hammock Hangout, this is where I go whenever I need to relax. You can bring your own hammock to tie to the trees or sit in one of the seating options that is already provided. In the past this used to be hammocks but it looks like they will have new seating options this year. I ten…

Firefly Spotlight: Top Five Firefly Performances

During the three years that I have been to Firefly I've seen countless artists perform and put on great shows. It can be hard to look back and think of what my favorite set was since each one can be so different. Some sets I've been up front and was able to feel like I was interacting with the artists, others I've been further back in a massive crowd of people feeding off the energy of the crowd and sometimes I'm far back sitting on the lawn chowing down on some food and just soaking in the vibes and sunlight. It's difficult to say that one kind of experience is better than others but I think I've finally  come up with a top five list. Here they are in no particular order:

Paul McCartney '15- Chills. I've never gotten so many chills during a concert in my entire life. Seeing such a legend perform with giant high definition screens, fireworks and such skill was a truly special experience. One of my friends has a tattoo referencing "Ob-La Di, Ob-La D…
