In this First Concert Ever segment, the emo hip-hop artist, ARIA, talks about the story of his first experience with live music. You can check out the story, after the break.
The first Dance Music Festival that I ever attended was Moonrise Festival in Maryland in August 2018. Growing up, I always gravitated towards Hip Hop, so I never expected myself to gravitate towards a dance music festival, however, my friends had been asking me to go to a festival for years, and it wasn’t until I had a dance song of my own coming out that I finally agreed to check out a music festival (the fact that A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Mustard were part of the lineup was another convincing factor for me.)
I must say, even though I didn’t know what to expect, it blew all of my expectations away. The crowds were going absolutely nuts (both days), the sound systems on all stages were incredible, the aesthetics and the thought put behind each set were absolutely on point as well. I ended up having the most incredible time at this show, and very much look forward to attending a bunch more in the future!
