Live music is back, and it feels so good! Although Washington state was one of the strictest states for COVID-19 restrictions, starting in July restrictions were lifted. That meant that live music and music festivals have been able to make a comeback.
Fresh Pressed, organized by myLifeEveryDay and White Rabbit Group, was the first music festival planned in the area, and since it was a brand new festival, many music lovers in the Pacific Northwest were excited for the new experience. This was a two-day festival which happened on July 17th and 18th. The venue was a newly used venue, and the festival was held in a field by the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington. There was a lot of parking in the area and the venue was easily accessible for a lot of people. There was a lot of room to dance and move around, and overall this venue seemed to be a crowd favorite. The festival was 21+ so the event consisted of an older crowd, which a lot of the attendees seemed to enjoy.
The lineup consisted of mostly house music artists such as Claud Vonstroke, Nora En Pure, SNBRN, Will Clarke, and other amazing artists. It was awesome to see some artists local to the Pacific Northwest such as Frida K and Johnny Monsoon on the lineup as well!
Overall, the weekend was a success, and many people were very happy that Fresh Pressed was their first festival back after having no live music for almost two years. One attendee, Antonia Truong said, “Fresh Pressed was a great first festival to come back to after this rough year and a half. The music, vibes, weather, set up and crowd were all amazing.”
Another satisfied attendee, Amanda Tanadinata said, “Everything was very organized, cashless (which was amazing considering during this time around), check-in was quick and effortless. There were a lot of food and drink options as well, and there was shade provided in the back for us who were scared of the sun. [The] music and vibes were amazing all-around! It made the first comeback of festival season with friends such a memorable one.”
With the first festival back in the Pacific Northwest being a huge success, this brings a lot of hope for events that are being planned for the future. LED Presents looks forward to next year’s Fresh Pressed and more events in the near future!
