Festival Tips from Catherine Clark
Catherine Clark knows a thing or two about festivals, so with Coachella coming up, we asked her to share some tips, memories and of course, a detailed description of what she will be wearing.
Which festivals will you be attending in the next few months? I will be attending the first weekend of Coachella, then heading to Lightning in a Bottle in July. That festival is amazing. Super grass roots. Lots of good music, food, yoga and enlightening workshops. Can't wait to see what's in store this year.
Which bands are you dying to see? Mt. Wolf, James Blake, The XX, Sigur Ros, Passion Pit, Lord Huron, Purity Ring, Benni Benassi, oh my gosh I'm so exicted!!!
Roadtrip theme song? Hmmm it's definitely a toss up between Life Size Ghosts by Mt. Wolf, and I never Learnt to Share by James Blake. They're both kind of moody songs. But maybe I'll throw in a little Sleepyhead by Passion Pit to spice it up ya know?
Camping vs Hotel? I'm actually staying at my Grandma's this year. It's awesome, she lives on a golf course, it's beautiful to wake up to. I've camped for two years, it's fun but miserably hot. Two years ago though, we arrived the Thursday before. And all throughout the campsite, which is huge might I add, you would hear at one end of the field someone start yelling, and suddenly everyone would chime in and you would listen as it moved like this massive amazing wave until finally you were surrounded by it just screaming and yelling at the top of your lungs, pure joy and excitement for the day to come. That was probably one of the best feelings I've ever had being a part of that. Last year, I was in my campsite and just randomly started howling like a coyote and it took off just the same. And then continued in different parts of the camp throughout the night. I'm pretty sure that was at Coachella, might have been at Lightning the year before. Anyways, it was awesome.
