It’s always nice to get away from NYC for a weekend. Don’t get me wrong, every weekend in this city could be filled with trying new activities, eating at new restaurants, and exploring a new neighborhood. But, hopping on a five hour bus to Washington DC was a nice weekend getaway, especially for a music festival. Virgin Mobile’s Freefest; a lineup that included Robin Thicke, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, and Kaskade to name a few. Bags packed with raincoats and a change of clothes, we hopped on a party bus with about 25 other DC friends and headed to the soppy festival. The rain held off for a good five minutes and then it began to downpour, soaking everyone in sight. The pouring rain didn’t stop us from purchasing funnel cakes (I know you want it), french fries and beer, though. I think a good time was had by all.
