The New Year is upon us. For most people, it would mean a fresh start, another shot at life, and a new set of chances. Therefore, it’s that time of the year when resolutions are on focus. We all would want to set some goals that we want to achieve this year.
Ravers are no exceptions to having New Year’s resolutions. Can’t think of anything to commit to this year? Here are some you would definitely relate to:
Buy tickets really early.
Going to buy tickets when the music festival is exactly a few days away is one of the most common mistakes of ravers. The result is that they tend to spend more on those tickets because the ones left on sale are priced a lot higher than the early releases. So it must definitely be an NYE resolution to buy tickets at the earliest. Not only would it cost less, it also would reduce the hassle of trying to find where else to find tickets. In order to keep this commitment, though, you have to be sure to manage your other expenses. This would allow you to be on the lookout for ticket release and to be ready to pay for it once it’s out.
Make new friends.
Ravers are not at all snobs—they are social animals and extroverts at best. They make friends easily especially as they go to highly social events like music festivals where a lot of people loiter about and start up conversations with those they do not even personally know. Hopping from one friend group to another is certainly a no-brainer. Sometimes, you don’t even have to look for a group; they would very easily spot you and let you join in whatever conversation and activity they are having and doing. Expectedly, it would not be a difficult NY resolution for ravers to make more friends when they go to the upcoming festivals. Maybe this can just be tweaked a little bit to mean: broaden your social circle. Go and meet with people from totally different professions. It would help you open up to more possibilities and an even wider network.
Discover new music.
Some ravers go to music festivals because they know which performers they like are in the lineup. They buy tickets solely based on which musical performer or band is going to be in the festival. It would be a great New Year’s resolution for them this year, then, to try and find new favorites in the coming festivals. It’s not unheard of that music festivals really do invite and feature up and coming performers and bands. Some bands even take shots at festivals because they get to introduce themselves to the listening public. Hence, it is not difficult to open yourself up to new music. After all, these are gatherings for both new and existing names in the industry. Music is for everyone, also, so it won’t run out of tune no matter how much new voices you discover each year.
Expand your experience.
It would be perfect for ravers to understand that being in music festivals is not just for the music. It’s for the peaceful, creative, and harmonious you. Some festivals even have yoga classes during the day as well as other activities you would totally and equally enjoy. There is also a wide variety of group classes that you may want to try out for the first time. Sure, the main purpose for being in a festival is to be one with music. But expanding your experience by trying out different things would be just as rewarding. At least, you make the best out of your trip and out of the ticket price you have surely painstakingly saved up for.
Keep within a budget!
Well, this must be a resolution for ravers and non-ravers alike. But for ravers, keeping within a budget is a must. During the festivals, it’s easy to find things to pay for: souvenirs, logo tees, food, clothes, and even cool fanny packs. Resolving to keep within a budget does not mean avoiding these things. It only means not buying everything on sight. Going on budget would mean just buying what is necessary. You can still keep a memorabilia but maybe limit it to just one or two items.
Having these resolutions does not stop at simply knowing what they are. We must remember that goals are something to be worked on. So, happy raving people and may you always keep these resolutions in mind.
