"FestWorld Magazine will be geared towards these super fans, providing seasoned festival goers with an honest account of the festival experience," the release read. "It will educate all generations about the vast number of music festivals that align with their music tastes and general interests."

A print magazine fits right into the festival ethos, which is rooted in travel, adventure, and new friendships," he explained of the venture, which will not have a digital or iPad version.
