My most powerful concert memory was at Bonnaroo in 2013. It was the weekend of my 21st birthday, and I road tripped to Tennessee with 6 of my closest friends. I was having the time of my life.
At one point on the second day, I had gotten separated from my friends. I started to get stressed about not being able to find them, as my phone had died and there were massive crowds. As I was walking around looking for them, I heard the start of “Hey Jude” in the distance, at the other side of the festival. I ran over there, it was Sir Paul McCartney up on stage.
I arrived just in time for the bridge. I ran into the crowd and got as close to the stage as I could. I looked around and felt 70,000 people screaming the “Na, na, na, na na na na” melody. It was wild. I have never felt so overcome by the energy of a crowd. I started to cry. It completely affirmed my dedication and love for music, and will remain one of the best memories of my life.
