These events often entice thousands of ravers from around the world, fitting them into relatively small spaces, where the intimacy of the party does not compromise the energy generated by big crowd.

Festival Bucket List: Paradise City Festival

When it comes to large scale events, the “best of” conversation tends to swing itself towards areas of high subjectivity…how we define what we “like”? How our personal finances affect our decisions? What kind of core values do we look for? Many questions, none of which with easy answers.
