There’s so many friends, lovers, ex-lovers and acquaintances here. Combine that with partying, great music, and the feels come out. I’ve heard this musician say that Burning Man is hard on the couples. I think that all festivals test relationships in some way, in their own way.
…The more that I dip my toes into mainstream, big budget festivals, the more I see how special the camp-outs are.
And the way that the festival was set up, with its location up against the mountains like in a moraine, it was perfectly positioned to receive the deluge.
Bringing a partner to a festival can be wonderful or disastrous, so I’ll share a nugget of wisdom here. Break-ups happen at festivals because, similar to road trips, they’re a glimpse into how compatible you two are. If you want to put your relationship to the test, then go on a long road trip to a festival far, far away.
