Summary/Abstract: The article aims to look at the phenomenon of music festivals from the perspective of autoethnography. The author, who first participated in 2015 in such events, tries to understand why people are so eager to participate in them. At festivals a special kind of social relations is produced that corresponds to the needs of today’s times of liquid modernity: they are intense, but also short-term and non-committal. At the same time, the popularity of the festival shows the great need in modern society to feel part of a greater whole.
