Madeline Megery - CRAZY TOUR STORIES

In this Crazy Tour Stories segment, the indie folk artist, Madeline Megery, shares one of her stories from being on the road. You can check out the story below:

As a new artist, I never thought I would perform at a big festival as one of my first shows. And as a California native, I never thought that festival would be Outside Lands. Fast forward to 24 years old, and my younger self would be shocked to find out that I ended up performing at the Twin Peaks stage at Outside Lands. Growing up in California, Outside Lands was a big deal and I always looked up to the artists who played there, so to be on that stage last summer was wild.

I found out only a week before the festival I would be singing when the artist Forester, with whom I had written a couple of songs, was booked for Outside Lands and asked me to join. I had never played a major festival before so I was nervous, but also very excited and knew I had to do it. I practiced, drove up to San Francisco, stayed in a little beach cottage in Pacifica, and got ready for the set on Sunday.

The Forester guys and I grew up together, so all our friends showed up, along with a big crowd of new faces. The mist of the morning turned to sun as the set began, and soon enough I was up on stage singing the songs we wrote to a sea of dancing people. It was incredible to share the music we created in such.
