Find out what’s shakin, and how you can get involved!
WakenMake.com was originally created as a blog to inspire others to travel and explore more. I’ve recently decided to narrow its focus to travel related to live music, festivals, and other events that bring people together through culture and art. We all have something to gain by seeking out experiences that celebrate creativity. This website will promote upcoming events, and offer resources to help you prepare for them.
The quick flick below was the *OG* original video I created for WakenMake back in the day. Stay tuned for the next one that will reflect the new focus on live music and festivals!
Life is a celebration, not a destination.
Create a life you love to live.
Here’s What to Expect in the Coming Weeks:
- I’ll be re-launching a completely new website which will include my current project: The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Thrive and Survive at a Music Festival.
- I’ll be re-launching my online store that will feature the most innovative, useful, and dopest festival gear out there.
- I’ll be networking, looking for people to collaborate with, events to attend, and gear to sell and promote.
- I’ll be recruiting homies to join me, and get involved!
