Finally, A Festival Website that Does It Right

Finding anything on the internet takes patience. Knowing where to search, what to search and how to search can sometimes be a little much. Perhaps that's why so many people have taken to believe every single meme they see posted on Facebook. Well, now there is one website that exists to give you what you want, and that's it.

Music Festival Nation is here to tell you what, when, where, how and why for music festivals all over, with a community aspect. To use the site, simply type the festival you're looking for in the search bar in the top and chances are it'll pop up. You can also search through festivals by searching alphabetically, by location, or by date. Once you find a festival, there are links to get to their official websites and social media connections. Many have photos attached, the full lineup, and every festival has it's own ride share page.

Ride Share for Hudson Music Project
People want to come to festivals from all over the country, and with this it could be possible for people to connect and see where the other is. Right here there's people in Michigan, Florida, New York, and New Jersey looking for and giving rides to the Hudson Music Project. It's super simple and to the point, it's a very useful tool.

This is everything you would need to find a festival to go to, buy tickets and get there. The community aspect is enormous, and Music Festival Nation makes it easy to do. The guys behind it (Jared and Blaine) have been around for a few years, and recently they have been updating their look and outreach. I would highly suggest checking it out, and seeing if there's been any ride share info posted up. I found a ride last minute for The Hudson Music Project, but I was about to grab one from New Jersey originally from someone offering a ride on Music Festival Nation. Right off the bat the site helped me out.

Remember, if the festival you're looking for isn't there, take a moment to add it in with some info. Usually the festival's Facebook page will have most of it. You can also just comment on how excited you are to be going to a festival already listed! Either way, it is important to know that this site is online and has so much information and connectivity to it.

It's been too long, and I am thankful that Music Festival Nation now is here.
