Festival season is nearly here and we couldn’t be more excited! To celebrate, we hosted a little warehouse party & photoshoot to with some of our local, long time supporters and friends. It was so lovely to have everyone together in a non-festival setting so we could chat (and actually hear each other!)
I had a ton of fun hosting this event and I was so happy to be able to sit down with this fabulous bunch and get to know them a little better. Read on to learn more about these amazing people and get some festival tips.
Jewelz @jewelzthecat & Corey @foxyspirit AKA @celestial_fae
Tessla: How did you and your festie bestie meet?
Jewelz: We met almost 2 years ago at City Hearts dancing on the speakers together. We danced all night and soon started festivaling together and became great friends. Fast forward and we have created our own performance group called Celestial Fae.
Corey: We are going to be performing at a lot of festivals this summer. Fire performers, fans, hooping. It’s so awesome to be working together to make beautiful visual art and share it with the world.
Tessla: What are your other hobbies besides festivals and raving?
Emileen: I sing! I am a singer and working on an EP right now. I am doing Pop/EDM. My first single is inspired by EDC. It has very good vibes. I am going to release it about a month before EDC so everyone can enjoy it. I’m really excited about it and I think you will love it too."
