10 Must Haves For Any Festival Lover

especially for #OMF2016 attendees

1) Ear Plugs

If you manage to get close to the stage you are going to want a pair. Only $12-$15 it wont stop your music experience and will keep your ears from ringing for weeks.

2) Fanny Packs

fanny1 fanny

Yes. We said it. A fanny pack. Now revamped, they come in many fashionable trends and colors to fit your style, but more importantly they can transport all your needed gear hands free.

3) Blankets

Cozy blanket

 

So you can layout on the lawn in a cozy-like-fashion! 

4) Portable Chargers

Music fests last all day so a portable charging case is the best way to capture all those moments and keep in touch with the world.

5) Bathroom Essentials

porta potty

We know you know the struggle so stay strapped and bring some of these essentials: baby wipes, tissue, hand sanitizer.

6) Cozy Clothes

shoes

If you’re moving and grooving and getting your dance on wear cozy clothes you don’t mind sweating in with closed toe shoes for that footwork action.

7) Sunglasses and Sunscreen

sunglasses

Georgia is HOT as we know but we don’t want you to burn so make sure you have your shades and sunscreen.

8) Sweat soakers

sweating

Fashionable bandanas or small towels will help all you party-goers stay cool and fresh.

9) Body accessories

glitter glitz

Get flashy and fancy with body glitter, jewels, and flash tattoos we want you to shine like the stars but remember less is more.

10) Parking spaces

park parking

We know how hard it is to find good parking just as much as you guys so get there early before those parking spots are gone.

7 Facts You Did Not Know About Anderson .Paak

7 Facts You Did Not Know About Anderson .Paak

1. Anderson .Paak is 30 years old

1

Although some would confuse Anderson .Paak for a graduating senior, .Paak recently turned 30 in February. Born and raised in California, this XXL Freshman, has made quite some noise in the hip-hop scene over the past year. Standing out in the wave of artists, that is the LA scene, has not proved to be easy for most, but this 30-year-old has finally broke through the barrier between irrelevance and stardom.

2. .Paak is Dre’s Newest Protege

4

.Paak’s singing, rapping, drumming, and producing caught the ear of some important figures on the west coast. Dr. Dre has a knack for discovering hidden talent, and .Paak has proved to be the latest diamond in the rough. Featured on 6 songs of Dre’s latest album ‘Compton’, his warm, strained voice, with hints of Sam Cooke, surely raised the ears of music lovers naive to his sound.

3. Anderson is Family Man

5

.Paak has a five-year-old son named Soul Rasheed, and a beautiful wife from South Korea.

4. Anderson .Paak was formerly known as Breezy Lovejoy

3

Before re-branding, .Paak went by the name of Breezy Lovejoy. Under that name, he released 2 albums, ‘O.B.E Vo. 1′(Out of Body Experience) and ‘Lovejoy’ in 2012. His music was all over the place, and he decided to focus on fine-tuning his skill under the name of Anderson .Paak. He says the dot in front of his surname is to remind himself, as well as others, to pay attention to detail; everything has a purpose, and nothing should go unnoticed.

5. .Paak previously was Weed Farmer

7

.Paak spent his weekdays crafting and performing as Breezy Lovejoy, and on weekends he and his wife worked on a pot farm in Santa Barbara. Things were going okay for a while; he was making music, getting by, and raising his newborn son. But, life came to a sudden stop when he lost his job at the farm and was forced to be homeless with his family. Singer-producer Shafif Husayn took .Paak in and helped him develop his music while times were tough. The rest is history.

6. Drumming was his first love

.Paak began playing drums at the age of 11, and ended up drumming for American Idol contestant Hayley Reinhart gaining the recognition he has today.

7. He already released 2 Albums

venicemalibu

.Paak has released 2 albums since 2014, ‘Venice’ and ‘Malibu’. ‘Venice’ showed hints of brilliance, but it was sporadic and lacked a sense of direction, bouncing from smooth jazz to trap and everything in between. ‘Malibu’, his second album, was more focused and really told his story in a way that exuded positivity and sonic brilliance. Mixing influences of jazz, soul, and funk, .Paak created a boom bap style with rhythm and cadence some would describe as a Kendrick Lamar that could sing.
