Music has always evoked a handful of emotions within me. I enjoy going to concerts, even if they're small or if I'm unfamiliar with the artist(s). I've also had the opportunity to meet a handful of my favorite artists. One of the most memorable music festivals I've been to was SXSW in 2019, it was my first time attending the festival. I ran into a lot of artists just by walking around Austin and I was also able to take their pictures, it was an overwhelming experience since it was my first SXSW but it was one of my favorite festival experiences.

Some of my favorite artists/bands are Title Fight, Ovlov, Max B, Snow Strippers, and Sade. I'm very open when it comes to music and am always on the hunt to try and find something new that I'll like. Although this may never happen, one of my biggest dreams is to see Sade perform live and hopefully get to take her picture. Her music is able to fit any mood I'm in and 9 times out of 10, I have her music playing in the background when I'm at home. My mom would do the same thing around the house when I was younger and I'm very grateful that she passed that trait down to me.

I haven't attended as many concerts this year as I have in the past. I haven't taken full advantage of the amount of concerts I can go to in the Austin area but I'm hoping to change that real soon. I also hope to attend another SXSW real soon, the fact that it takes place the same week as my spring break isn't very convenient. A festival that I would really like to experience this year is Austin City Limits, I unfortunately have yet to attend one. Some other festivals that I hope to go to one day are Lollapalooza, Pitchfork Music Festival, and Coachella.
