This weekend, thousands of happy ravers made their way to Pimlico Race Track in Baltimore, Maryland for the fourth annual Moonrise electronic dance festival.
The Vibe Tribe came to dance the rain away and spread the word about the best hydration packs for music festivals. As always, we had a Vibedration station set up and met a whole new batch of festival friends who were rocking their favorite hydration packs.
Moonrise 2017: The Vibe
Some festivals are more about the hang and the experience than the music. Moonrise is not one of those festivals.
Festival organizers packed the heavy hitters of EDM into a relentless two day lineup. It’s the opposite of chill, but we mean that in the best way. From the moment we got to Pimlico Race Track, we were in rave mode, and the party showed no signs of stopping….
Until it did.
Unfortunately, the weather was ominous enough for the organizers to evacuate the festival on Saturday. Amid much confusion, we finally found out that the festivities were starting up again around 9pm.
At Vibedration, we like to find the silver lining in every bad situation. Even though the weather stopped the fun for a while, everyone was incredibly pumped to end the night on a high note. The energy was at an all time high for the remaining sets.
We raged to RL Grime and Must Die!’s standout sets before we had to evacuate. When we were let back into the festival, Madeon was waiting for us with a killer set, proving the night was far from over.
Day two went off without a hitch. The weather didn’t pose a problem, and people were ready to get their fix of raving after Saturday’s weather problems.
Carnage turned up in the early evening, and the night only got crazier from there. Porter Robinson played a life-changing set on the Lunar Stage while Excision shook the earth with his patented style of HEAVY dubstep.
The night ended with Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus’s project Dillstradamus on the Stellar Stage, while Pretty Lights played an epic live set on the lunar stage. It brought tears to our eyes.
Did we mention the mud? Yeah, there was mud. Lots of it.
That didn’t stop anyone from enjoying the music though. People embraced it, actually. There were mud puddle dance floors and people covered head to toe in the earthly sludge.
Aside from the mud, rave booty and outfits matching our hydration packs, sheer dresses and tops, along with fishnet stockings were popular among the crowd. Space buns were everywhere too (hair tied in two high buns.) Rave booty space buns. Say that 3 times fast!
The Best Hydration Packs for Music Festivals
It’s easy to become dehydrated at a music festival -- even when it’s raining and muddy. Having water readily available is the key to fighting off fatigue and keeping your festival energy at an all time high.
Vibedration’s rad hydration packs keep you hydrated while you express yourself. From Coachella hippy to Moonrise trippy, there’s a style for everyone.
