How to Have Your Own Music Festival

April 16, 2020

While Being Quarantined

It’s music festival season, but thanks to Corona Chaos, all festivals are either postponed or cancelled.

Even though I wasn’t going to any music festivals, I decided to throw a mini music festival with myself, and here’s (kind of) how I did it:

Minor Details

When it comes to music festivals, most people tend to focus on the music and the outfits. If the lineup is good, they will go to the festival to show off the outfits they worked so hard to put together.

Before we get into the music and festival fashion, there are still some minor details that need to be thought about when putting together a music festival, especially one that is at home.


I didn’t taken any pictures of the two outfits I wore because my lip looks very busted. Long story short: I accidentally punched myself in the mouth in my sleep while dealing with a fever blister. Now the fever blister is making a comeback.

Since I didn’t take any pictures of my outfits, I found some outfits I liked from previous music festivals (Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza) to share with you for some outfit inspo.

Festival fashion trends I like:

For festival fashion, I am all about showing skin but not to much skin and not in a risky way, like the outfits where people have their entire butt out for the world to see.


My favorite thing about this being a solo/at-home festival is you can listen to whatever kind of music you want. I feel like at music festivals, some people only have a good time if it’s their favorite artist performing. Yes, it is a good opportunity to discover new music, but people also get upset when they have to wait forever to hear someone they like while listening to an artist they don’t vibe with.

I tried to have a couple of different vibes for my festival, between slow jams and upbeat bops. My music ranges from WILLOW and The Weeknd to AJR and Galantis. Below, you will find the official lineup/playlist for the SJ Quarantine Festival (I tried to group the songs on the playlist by the artist):

If you’ve reached peak boredom during this quarantine season, I hope you are inspired to create your own version of a music festival with all of your favorite artists.

Yes, it’s unfortunate that events like these got cancelled, but I think it’s important for us to create our own fun; it’ll bring some much needed joy and positivity into our lives.

Be you. Be true. Make smart decisions.
