Beat drops & hook ups: new survey identifies the most ‘promiscuous’ music festivals

This post was originally published on this site

A new survey conducted by Tickpick sought to evaluate the hookup culture of the festival scene, and as the findings indicate, it’s thriving.

Tickpick collected self-reported information from 1,050 people from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk about their sexual activity at music festivals. The statistics revealed 50.2% of festival goers to be open to a “weekend fling,” meaning that the odds of finding a temporary rave bae in the crowd are very likely to be in the favor of those seeking one. 33.6% of attendees reported having sex at a music festival.

Camping festivals Electric Forest, Bonnaroo, and Burning Man ranked as the top three most popular music festivals for sex, with 30.2%, 27.3%, and 25.2% of ticket holders experiencing a sexual encounter at each event, respectively.

Tickpick’s data determined Burning Man and Electric Forest to be the top two music festivals for oral sex, with 28.2% of Burning Man attendees engaging in oral activity, and 20.9% of Electric Forest attendees following suit. Electric Daisy Carnival came in third at 18.7%. 46.4% of festival goers stated that they’d had oral sex with someone they’d just met at one of the listed festivals.

A daring 3.8% of survey participants said that they’d had sex in a festival dance tent. Surprisingly enough, a dance tent was the area that saw the least sex: port-a-potties saw comparatively more action, with 9.4% of attendees getting it on by the toilets. 15.3% reported doing so in a crowd, while 7.2% got hot and heavy backstage. The two most popular locations for festival sex were the tent, and the car.

As the survey identified, “face down a** up that’s the way we like to f*ck” isn’t just a favorite song to shout among festival crowds: doggy style turned out to be the most popular position of festival hookups, with 43.9% citing doggy style as their preferred festival position.

Kasbo – Snow In Gothenburg

This post was originally published on this site

Since his breakout with “World Away“—released in 2015 on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective—Swedish producer Kasbo has made quick work of developing a distinct sound. He’s since remixed artists from Big Gigantic to Vance Joy and spent time touring with the likes ofOdesza, San Holo, and Slow Magic. The producer’s spring touring schedule is still being fleshed out, but he has already been announced to play Hangout Festival and two weekends at Electric Forest.

On his newest single, “Snow In Gothenburg,” Kasbo showcases his artistically sensitive shadow, one that has lurked in the melodies of his tracks for years now. Drawing on influences in melancholic house, the song is an interpersonal journey full of atmospheric synths and waning vocals.

“The song itself is about loneliness and isolation, and the freedom of coming to terms with those feelings” says Kasbo of the track.  “Seeing the beauty of realizing that everyone has their own ways to go in life and that not everyone is supposed to have someone.”
