Because you shouldn't have to go home between music festivals

After losing contact with some newfound friends at a Dave Matthews Band concert in 2011, Portland, Ore.'s, Hunter Wilson and Arianna Singleton created Family of Festivals to help music lovers connect.

FOF gives festival attendees a central place to find information on upcoming music festivals—everything from Sasquatch to Bonnaroo to Coachella to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival—along with a catalog of pictures, videos and reviews to refer back to and reminisce about after the festival is over.

"It's more than the music, the atmosphere, the attractions," the couple wrote on familyoffestivals.com. "It's that perfect little world we all wish we had. It doesn't last forever. But when you're there, you're in the moment."

The Family has grown exponentially since the formation of the website, familyoffestivals.com, in January 2012. Now, those who sign up for free to become part of the Family are entered to win two tickets to any 2014 festival.

"Though our numbers are growing rapidly, that's not how we judge our success," said Wilson. "It's up to the Family to make us successful. We've had so much positive input from people all over the world. The sky's the limit for us."
