When it comes to talking about the ultimate music festival ever, nothing comes close to Woodstock in 1969. It created a revolution and sparked a culture of its own. There have been numerous attempts by various people to bring back that magic but it has never worked out. Over the years, there have been many successful music festivals such as Wacken Open Air in Germany, Tomorrowland in Belgium, and Ultra Music Festival in Miami among many more. Hundreds and thousands of people attend such music festivals for a day or two or three. To conceptualize and execute music festivals require expertise, commitment, hard work and above all, finances. A young boy from King of Prussia, Pennsylvania is making huge waves in the festival scene is Chris Yangello.
Born on June 5th, 2002, Chris showed great interest in music at a very young age. He says, “Music has always been my passion ever since I was a kid. I realized it was my calling at a very young age.” Seeing his passion and taste for music, Chris has hired to create audio and video content for Sony Music Entertainment’s REDMusic Label. Here’s where Chris learned a lot about the music business and worked with some of the biggest artists including Zedd, Trippie Redd, DaBaby and so many more. As a content creator, it required Chris to visit numerous music festivals all around the country which included the famed Firefly Music Festival at Dover International Speedway in Delaware. At the 2019 edition, Chris took charge of covering the entire festival through his camera lens. The lineup included Panic! At The Disco, Tyler, The Creator, Travis Scott, Post Malone and many more. The after-movie of the festival was shot and edited by Chris and can be seen on YouTube. At just 17, Chris has over 135k followers on Instagram and the number is just growing with time. When asked about his future plans, Chris says, “I love the life I’m living right now. It is great to be on the road, meet my favorite artists and create great content. You can only expect the best from here on out.”
