As summer is wrapping up, I (Steph) decided to check one more thing off my bucket list and attend a full-fledged music festival. Here are my top five best, and worst, moments during my experience at Jay Z’s Made in America Festival 2015.
- WORST: Overcrowding.
Jay Z, you sold wayyyyy too many tickets to this event. There were entirely too many people, which took away from the experience.
- BEST: Getting almost front row views of The Weeknd’s performance.
It definitely took standing in the hot sun all day, but it was worth every minute.
- WORST: Smells.
Which for the most part were disgusting and unidentifiable.
- BEST: Meek Mill bringing his boo Nicki on stage.
From what I heard, Nicki was the best part of the Meek Mill performance.
- WORST: Food.
The food was horrible, but then again, it’s a festival soooooo I can’t complain too much.
- BEST: Staying in downtown Philly.
This was by far the best decision I could have made location-wise. Staying close to the venue and train station was a life saver after long festival days. Not to mention we got upgraded to a suite room!!
- WORST: The nightlife scene.
It was kinda weak. Even being in the heart of downtown Philly. But for all my Ohio State friends, I found another Insomnia Cookies!
- BEST: Making new friends.
When your 2 inches away from the people around you for 6+ hours, you’re bound to make a couple of friends! Here’s to all of you who sustained my armpit sweat.
1.WORST: Closing Headlining with The Weeknd rather than Beyoncé
Beyoncé should have ended the concert. Reason? Because she is Beyoncé. Who better to end a festival?
- BEST: BEYONCE!!
Her performance was flawless. All hail Queen Bey!! And not to mention her man Jay Z was supporting in the crowd.
