Thoughts From The Floor: A Journey Through Eating Disorder Recovery

I use to bow down to the obedience I gave to my disease. I felt out of control the first time I purged. Trying to go a day without purging felt like the end of the world, every second filled with temptation and I was ready to give in.

Permission To Come Aboard Desert Daze

You have been selected to take part in a psychonautical expedition from October 12th through the 14th on the multisensory planet of Desert Daze! West coast’’s best psychedelic festival this year will be going down at Moreno Beach in Lake Perris. About one hour east of Los Angeles, Lake Perris is a whole hour closer than last year’s Joshua Tree location at The Institute of Metaphysics. Relocating Desert Daze grounds more west this year comes in favor for festival goers since the heat has been pretty gnarly lately. Breaking new ground, this year’s Desert Daze is nothing like you’ve ever experienced from a music festival. To beat the heat, this venue has one major and unique highlight, SWIMMING!

Lollaplaooza 2018 Promises An Unforgettable Weekend in Chicago

On August 2-5, 2018 Lollapalooza will make its much-anticipated return to Grant Park, Chicago, continuing the festival’s long-standing run of over 25 years. In an era where music festivals seem to be more prevalent, widely advertised, and highly attended than ever, it is certainly difficult for festivals to stand out among the crowd. Lollapalooza, however, has such deep roots in the festival realm and a name known worldwide – with installations ranging from Berlin to Brazil to Paris and even Stockholm – that promoters already have a bit of a leg up on the competition when it comes to drawing in audiences.

Hate Has No Home In Asbury Park: A Peaceful Protest Against The “Festival of Life.”

Over the past few years “Pride Day” in Asbury Park, NJ has gone smoothly but this year was very different. Pride Day is the last Sunday in June and in Asbury Park it’s held in Bradley Park, an idyllic location a block away from the beach. However, this year Bradley Park was given to Revivalist Reverend Jonathan Shuttlesworth and his “Festival of Life.” Shuttlesworth is no stranger to making anti-LGBTQ comments as he once said that “somebody bound in homosexuality [has a] wicked spirit.”  Needless to say that once the LGBTQ community and its allies heard of Shuttlesworth’s festival coming to town, it did not take long for them to come up with a counter festival that welcomes all.

Keep cool this summer with the Coca-Cola stage at the Calgary Stampede

Each year at The Calgary Stampede they host multiple Canadian artists and other artists from around the world at a stage they call "The Coca Cola Stage." Previous line ups included artists such as Vance Joy, Magic!. X-Ambassadors and Alessia Cara. This is the top event to attend if you are someone who wants to discover new artists, view local artists or if you are a music lover in general. I like to view it as a huge music festival that is split into multiple days so that you don't have to endure a full tiring day out in the sun waiting for your favourite artist to perform.
