The Big O Music Festival is definitely a start to what could possibly be the next alternative version of Coachella Festival to say least. The festival took place at the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando on Sunday December 7th from eleven o ‘ clock presented by Orlando’s new alternative station X 107.3 FM. They had three stages all together sponsored by the Jagermeifer, Axis Local Noise, and the main stage Monster Energy. General Admission started at $39.50 and VIP: $89.50
The Big O definitely brought an all time lineup from performances of bands like Felicity,The New Politics, J. Roddy, Bear Hands, Big Data, Dirty Heads, Young The Giant to legendary bands like Weezer and since 2009 Fall Out Boy!
My top personal favorite performances: Big Data, Dirty Heads, Young The Giant, Weezer, and of course Fall Out Boy!!
Besides rocking out all day, meeting some lovely music fest fans, and having the time of my life with my best friend dancing and singing; I also took time to scope out the scene.Here are some cool photos I took of the festival scene.

MEET: CULTURE CROSS
Owned by Ben Chaffee, and Alex Zinn who started collecting vintage handmade artifacts from their travels and have created an amazing shop of unique tribal jewelry full of history and culture. I fell in love with all of their jewelry and trust me I would have bought the whole place if I could have. I definitely fell in love with this amazing gold chain necklace with a purple stone, as well as with this leaf bangle. I love the bohemian, gypsy style and as soon as I saw their merchandise I definitely identified with them. If you love any of these styles definitely check their shop on their Etsy store Culture Cross
