We are officially four months into the year 2021. Our review- Earth can do better. The news keeps getting weirder and our hopes, well, what is hope? If we could, we would like to ask the world to cool it a little. And like what every toxic friend does, it has been read and ignored.
"Many, many artists to look forward to, like Doja Cat, Purple Disco Machine, err… you have seen the poster, there is someone for everyone."
The only thing keeping us going is the summer break. There are always good reasons to fly to Spain, but this year might not be the best for a vacation. Unless of course the vaccines work their magic by then. Either way, good things are set to happen in Stockholm this July. Something which brings with it strong reasons to be excited (even though the bar has never been lower) and validates stronger beer. It is probably too early to be excited about this and we are too drunk in the morning for this, but finally a music festival, Lollapalooza, is landing in Gärdet in July. Yes, a M U S I C F E S T I V A L. And we have decided to start drinking already so we can just skip past the time in between.
More so than live music, what we are really missing is being around with people once again. Taking part in all the crazy experiences and bad dancing, happy even though our makeup has fallen completely out of place. We want to get out of the sanitized conversations on Zoom, and see people being themselves, unfiltered. It would be so good that we will probably not even complain about the dirty porta potties. Okay, we still might. Aside from the washroom situation, we are excited about EVERY-thing.
Lollapalooza is promising us the experience of the year. All the music we have been listening to at home, alone, we can finally be dazed to. Many, many artists to look forward to, like Doja Cat, Purple Disco Machine, err…you have seen the poster, there is someone for everyone. Also, a major part, food, is also going to be better. This we can say so surely without having had a taste is because the festival has switched to sustainable food options. And this might sound like a bummer to some, but a good life reboot for your younger siblings is also on the plate - Kidzapalooza. They too can have fun.
Not to dull our excitement, but we must point out the obvious. We are still in a pandemic. Thankfully the organizers promise that in case the event gets cancelled (like most of our dreams for the past whole year) you can claim full refund or roll over the ticket to Lollapalooza Stockholm 2022 (this option is only for the optimistic ones). For even more optimistic ones, go ahead and ask your friends out. Because what good is it, without our friends.
