It Was Love at First Drop For These Music Festival Lovebirds


Love is in the air.


Music festivals have become the utopia for love and connection. Many festivals bring in lovely couples from all over the place – unifying their love for music and one another as well as being the perfect opportunities for new love to form. For music fans, there are few experiences as monumental as your favorite music festival with your significant other. We see couples at these events yet never know their stories.


We went around Splash House Music Festival in Palm Springs, CA – asking couples about their history together. We inquired how they met, what their first festival together was, and how long they have been together. These adorable couples crossed paths in unique ways and all share a similar bond with music festivals. Grab your tissues and check out these beautiful dynamic duos.
