A music scene as described below


  • You get crushed to the point you think you’re going to die.
  • You struggle breathing in between thousands of people.
  • You queue for hours on end to get near the front.
  • You travel ridiculous distances to see your favourite bands.
  • You sweat and look like a complete mess.
  • You’re being pushed around by strangers.
  • You’re feet kill from being stomped on and jumping around.
  • You have no voice the day after from singing/screaming so loud.

But none of this matters, because you’re having the time of your life.

Obviously never been to a JAZZ concert ;)
