REVIEW Everfest.com

Disclaimer: I was financially compensated for this post, I agreed to work with this company as I believe the information will be of interest to my readers. All opinions are completely my own.

One thing my husband and I promised ourselves for years we would do is to start attending some festivals, with two young children in tow we never actually made it to any whilst in the UK however we did make it to ACL last year and loved it, you can read about our ACL experience in this post of mine from last year: http://www.expataustinmum.com/2014/10/new-experiences.html

The large festivals are amazingly advertised and literally everyone knows when Glastonbury, Coachella, ACL etc are on the way, which made me realise if my husband and I had simply known more about which festivals were happening near us wherever we were, we would have been able to attend a few more with or without the children before now.

Recently I was contacted by Everfest.com https://www.everfest.com to see if I would be interested in writing a review, I decided I would as I believe a post linked to this company would be informative and useful to my readers as well as for myself.

Reviewing the Everfest website I particularly loved the homepage, the colours and design give off a real fun, exciting vibe and draws the eye immediately around the whole page which leaves you wanting more and I immediately felt I wanted to click on 'About' to learn further about the creators of this company and the full synopsis of their work.

Everfest came together as three founders sharing a common passion for festivals and travel. They believed experiences trump things you can buy, and the pursuit of a great story is a higher ideal than the pursuit of money it was these values that helped create Everfest. Basically a way to discover festivals, book unique travel, find other revelers and share amazing memories. Everfest includes festivals of all types, grouping them across 12 categories and currently in 17 US cities.

On further navigation of the Everfest website I came across the option to 'Suggest a Fest' and the 'Everfest Fest Test' both great ideas and as a potential new festival-goer this gave me confidence that the information I was about to search for will be legitimate and in date. I also think it's fantastic Everfest have a blog which is easily accessible from their website and is regularly updated with interesting and diverse topics with some cool photography.

I personally love to be thorough and when clicking on the Terms page I was pleased to see listed their Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and Participation Agreement unfortunately when I tried to click on the policies to read them each one took me back to the home page a small flaw which can easily be rectified of course.

"Life's a wonderful journey, you have to find the clowns that make you happy and ride the magic. Everest's core goal is to bring people together physically offline in shared interests. We understand the irony as a tech company!"

I focused on the Austin 2016 calendar of festivals https://www.everfest.com/texas/austin-festivals and was enthralled to see a broad and varied range of festivals divided by month and location.

When I clicked on a particular festival listed it took me to a page which had either a background photo or video of the festival with a short to the point overview of the event I had chosen plus an option to click on 'Been, Save or Going'.

More importantly it was also very clear to see the important choices of where to 'Get tickets, Visit website and/or Share festival'. Some of the festivals listed had extra information for choice making such as Instagram feeds and an artist lineup.

In conclusion I love the interactivity of this protocol with its clear and easy to use website, we have been living in Austin for around 15 months now and my husband and I felt we had explored Austin quite well for newbies, well this website left me feeling our exploration has been a drop in the ocean of what Austin has to offer and has given us an extra boost to get out even more...and on a final note when we attend a festival found on https://www.everfest.com I will keep my eye out for a group of dancing humans dressed as rabbits and for sure I will come over and say Hi!
