Music festivals are obviously on hold right now. Groups of strangers can’t gather and concerts are canceled until 2021. I think back to March, when there was still a glimmer of hope for the summer 2020 music scene (boy, was that ever foolish). Now, as we wrap up July, we must shift our attention to next year, and follow up with our favorite festivals to see how they are coping with a summer of cancellations.
Electric Forest is using their platform to reach out to voters.
This year’s Electric Forest was canceled, but the organizers are still active on social media, challenging followers to register to vote. They partnered with HeadCount, an organization that encourages music festival/concert attendees to participate in elections, to inspire the forest family to step up and vote this fall (not to mention the prize involved…TWO Good Life wristbands)!
We’re within 100 days of the election…
I get it, it’s a bummer to not be bumping into friendly festival-goers with voter registration clipboards this year, but voting is still super cool (I promise). Bring that happy-clipboard-holder energy home with you this election year, and remember to register to vote!
