I never thought I would see the day that I would say I need to attend a concert or festival because it is healthy for me.
There was a study conducted at Yale University recently. With this study, there was some interesting information that was found out. The professor and/or scientist at Yale is named Dr. Daniel Yudkin. They basically utilized the lockdown from Covid as part of the inspiration for doing this study. According to Louder Sound, the professor and his team were inspired from many places. In addition to the lockdown, they utilized traditional religious celebrations as well for inspiration.
The result of this study shows that going to festivals can have lasting effects up to approx 6 months. I think during the pandemic, the period of time a lot of people were in the house, it probably made some have a feeling of loss. It almost creates grief in my opinion. A lot of individuals lost jobs, businesses, friends, and family. I can understand why going to a festival gives you a long lasting high in a sense. You are actually creating memories again and you realize it. When clubs, amusement parks, restaurants, and more were closed, we couldn’t get together for lunch and hang out with our friends. I think it created a void and a concert or festival gave us what didn’t realize we took for granted. What are your thoughts?
