“Part of me took succour in thinking that better people than I had shitty days. That sometimes even Mother Teresa got out of bed, rolled her eyes and thought, ‘If I have to deal with another God damn leper today….’ But that was until I met Tucker Gumber.”
These are the words of my friend Byron, whom I met on Craigslist and gave a ride to Vegas on the way to a EDC.
Have you ever heard this speech by Alan Watts?
He says that if you find something you love and do it, you will eventually become a master of it and find a way to turn it into a career. More importantly he says that you will be happy. I took these words to heart and have dedicated my life to music festivals. Over the last three years I have lived my dream to the tune of over 85 festivals, totaling over 240 festival days, including five trips to Burning man.
During this time I tried to learn everything I can about the music festival industry and the festival community. I found that volunteering at festivals was not only a great way to meet new friends, but was also a great glimpse of the inner workings of the festival. Now that I have all of this experience under my belt, I am ready to find ways to improve the festival experience for everyone.
My new mission is to find ways to improve the festival experience. I’ve created a company called FestEvo to put my ideas into action. Our first product is a mobil app that gives festivalgoers the tools they need to have their best festival.
Here is what it’s all about.
