10 Types Of Music Fans You'll Meet During This Festival Season

Posted at December 19th, 2015 | by Sidhantha Jain | in

New Year celebrations at music festivals have been on our ‘to-do’ lists even before India’s biggest EDM parties were announced. These festivals incepted as a niche for hardcore dance music fans but over the years they’ve seen all kinds of people come from different walks of life; from wanna-be DJs to professional photographers and today we boil down the types of people you’re bound to bump into this year in Goa!

Check ‘em out:

  • The lost newbie

Blokes who’re there just because their best-friends are dance music fans and cannot be found in the crowd.

  • The confused pop fan

He/She who’s shocked to know EDM is more than just ‘Get low’ and ‘I need your love.’

  • The “I don’t care what EDM is” Hipster

Dressed different (not weird), they’re here only to enjoy the good vibes, travel and care less about the music.

  • The awkward head-bangers

They tend to let their hair down even during the pre show sound check.

  • Overly sentimental heavy metal fan

Wearing a Metallica t-shirt, they expect not to look odd in the crowd.

  • The old-school raver

‘The Beach Boys’ fans who think that everything after the 90s is not music.

  • The human Shazam

Has to guess every song which is playing and take it to the ego if they can’t recognize a tune.

  • The underground veterans

They mostly avoid the main stages and dedicate themselves to the “less commercialized” artists.

  • The overly enthusiastic Beliebers

Summing up Justin’s journey from ‘Baby’ with Ludacris to ‘Sorry’ produced by Skrillex, he has successfully transformed the way music industry looks at him. 2015 was a good year for him as he managed to break into our playlists with one of the biggest tracks of the year ‘Where Are Ü Now,’ making us all “Beliebers,” but some fan girls take it to the next level and you just can’t ignore them!

  • The future Martin Garrix

The 19 year old attended Ultra Music Festival, Miami in 2013 as a fan and performed on the main stage in 2014. Who knows, you might be heading next year’s line-up itself!

Happy Raving 🙂
