Bud Light Getaway

DJ Natty Heavy

Who doesn’t love a good music festival? And who doesn’t love a music festival in their backyard? This past weekend I attended the Bud Light Getaway music festival at North Charleston’s Riverfront Park. I had the same WTF reaction as most people when I saw the lineup. Up-and-coming folk-pop singer, Harry Hudson, Lil’ Jon, Dashboard Confessional, and country music headliner, Sam Hunt. While this wide-genre festival left people confused, it was really a good thing for Charleston because it will lead to more festivals.

With over 3,000 tickets sold, making this a sold-out festival and a huge reason for large advertisers like Bud Light to keep hosting more large-scale events in Charleston. Charleston is becoming an ideal destination for music festivals like High Water, Be More Tea, and now Bud Light’s Getaway. There are some pros to having larger festivals setup in our Holy City: jobs for local restaurants/vendors, sponsorship deals, and profit for the city as people will be spending money.

As an avid concert attendee, my gal, Ali, and I came prepared to take in all there was at North Charleston’s Riverfront Park. Bud Light made sure to take advantage of the space with pick-up trucks for seating, palettes turned into lounges, and bars conveniently placed throughout.

This would make any concert-goer pleased with the number of areas to relax, drink, and listen to music. While we did try to get an interview with an artist this year, unfortunately, due to scheduling, we weren’t able to make that happen. We did, however, we did get an opportunity to meet Lil Jon. Overall, the festival was run smoothly and efficiently. It was a good time had by all and let’s hope that more show organizers see what makes Charleston an ideal festival town.

ACL Fest

ACL FEST

Exciting news happening over in the Teepee!

I will be jet-setting to Austin next weekend for Austin City Limits Music Festival. The festival will be held over two weekends, October 3rd -5th and October 10th -12th, and I’ve managed to wiggle myself into the first week’s set of concerts. The headliners for weekend one include Outkast, Beck, Skrillex, Eminem, Calvin Harris and Pearl Jam.  However, one of the best parts of attending an event like this is finding new artists and bands. 

ACL Fest has been a music festival bucket list item for years, and the excitement is almost uncontainable. Austin alone is a city that oozes creativity and innovation, and throwing a music fest on top of that may make my head explode. I will be documenting the shows, sightings and fashion from the event so stay tuned to my Twitter and Instagram for the latest updates.
