Music Festivals and Art: It's More Than Music Now

Not so long ago, visual art didnít play any role in most music festivals. There was a standard concert setup, some lights and smoke and that was it. Luckily, things are changing more and more and the use of new visual contexts is present in a larger scale.

The main goal today is to interconnect the music and visual art to such extent that it becomes difficult to make a difference which is which. Most modern technologies are being used to manipulate the sound, light and space with one ultimate goal to create a unique experience. And the good thing is that they really make it happen.

The best thing in music festivals is that the people coming to the festival are extremely receptive and ready to experience something different and powerful. They want to experience more than the music coming from their large Bluetooth speakers, they want to create their own memories. And for the artists, this is an ideal opportunity to present their visual artwork which canít be seen anywhere else. You definitely canít have that experience anywhere else than in the music festival.

The fine border between the visual art and visual art began to disappear when the enormous LED arrays began to appear on festival stages. This made it possible for artists to perform in front of high-quality video. Luckily, this happened just in time when the new generation of visual artists began to mature and they saw a massive opportunity to express their creativity. The size of the screens has been increasing and people were testing the limits of this new format. And because of that these video shows and art installations started to attract people to come to the festivals just as music did before.

It was easy to predict that things were going to develop this way. It became inevitable for the music, digital art and media to become one. With the development of stage lighting people began to use them in some new, artistic ways and the border between a concert environment and art installation began to disappear.

Because of that many music festivals have both music and art in their name today. This creates a special atmosphere where you can expect to see different types of creativity. You can enjoy in the live paintings, poster art, enormous sculptures and interactive art. All of this gives a special touch to the festival and at the same time your festival pics and selfies will be amazing if you have some of the art installations in the background.

If we had to make a list of the most popular music art festivals we would like to visit at least once in our life, we would definitely put the following on our bucket list: Tomorrowland, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Escape: Psycho Circus, Okeechobee and Ultra. Of course, you can also have an amazing experience at other music art festivals, but these are the first tat have come to our mind.

Some of these music art festivals like Coachella do their best to innovate their art installations over and over again, and others like Tomorrowland use the stage for their amazing visual art. Although most people come there because of the music, you simply canít ignore these spectacular art installations.

The entire concept of music festivals has evolved and even when it comes to drinks and food things have changed and they have become part in the overall experience. Now you can expect to have everything from the traditional corn dog to food prepared by some of the most popular chefs in the world.

When you think a little, everything you can see at the music festival, all the music, people, art installations and events Ė everything is there to stay in your memory forever. And at the end, besides everything being offered on such festivals the main point is and will be the music. It is just necessary to avoid the standard concert setting and create something that will lift your overall experience to a completely new level. And as time goes on, this experience will definitely be richer year after year.
