Review: Galantis | Pharmacy

Review: Galantis | Pharmacy

On June 8th, 2015, I was rewarded with the fruits of a long, long wait. I finally got what I’d been waiting on since October. Of 2013. Pharmacy, the new LP from the Swedish duo Galantis had an incredible build up. Their journey technically began with an oddball collab with A-Trak titled “Jumbo,” but they […]

At some point after you attend enough festivals, you establish a kind of routine in getting ready. You have a recurring list of all the things you need to pack, a good idea of what to expect at the festival, and you don’t do things like buy a new pair of shoes the day before […]

This experience is impacted by a number of different factors, ranging from the sound quality to the frequency of smiles shared by fellow fans. The Coachella experience was once dominated by hipsters, with the […]

Event Review- Feed Me @ House of Blues, Boston MA

I’m a little late getting to Boston for the show.  My little brother, who’s navigating, directs me right into the throng of Red Sox fans congregating around Fenway Park (in the middle of the street) for a night game. “Are we near the venue?” I ask, drumming my fingers on the steering wheel, frustrated and […]

A Lesson in Optimism: Summer Set Music Festival

If you’re going to organize a festival, you have to find a way to stand out enough for people to notice you. You have to decide on a focus point to leverage yourself against the growing number of new festivals, as well as the established ones. For a small festival in rural Wisconsin, their choice seems […]

Electric Forest: 6 Must-See Outliers

Electric Forest: 6 Must-See Outliers

Below the large, fancy fonts and logos of Electric Forest’s headliners lays a sea of standard-font, small lettered artists.  It’s a daunting task to sort through all of those names in an effort to narrow down to a concise list.  No worries, though, ElectroJams has your back. I intended to create a list of Top 5 […]

Electric Forest: Five Must-See Headliners

Music: The meat of every festival sandwich.  Or, in Electric Forest‘s case, the soy-meal protein patty.  Naturally, you probably want to know what you’re getting into before you bite into that sandwich.  Or, maybe you’re into mystery meat, in which case, this may not be the article for you.

Electric Forest: Be Prepared, Be Excellent

Electric Forest: Be Prepared, Be Excellent

Going to a music festival is not as simple as hopping in a car and driving to the venue.  Especially in the case of Electric Forest, spanning four long days with camping in a remote location, meaning you have to bring everything you’ll need when you’re awake, sleeping, dancing and quite a bit of walking.

Electric Forest 2014: A Preview

Electric Forest 2014: A Preview

When I first started going to festivals almost twenty years ago, there wasn’t a lot of thought put into them beyond the basics.  They consisted of three to four stages, porta-potties and the same food options as those found at a little league baseball game.  There are garage sales with more thought put into them […]
