It's been interesting to watch Something Wicked grow over the past three years. Walking into the festival on Saturday, it was easy to forget that in the grand scheme of things it's still a very young fest. Quite frankly, between the lineup and the stage designs, the people behind the festival have done a real good job making it feel like an Event as opposed to Just Another Houston Music Festival.
That's probably why it attracted folks from all over the state and beyond to attend. On social media, there were tweets of people spending 12 hours in a car just to rage in Houston. Not bad for a city that isn't particularly associated with EDM.
If you checked out our Overheard at Something Wicked blog, you will have seen the quote from a member of security force in the parking lot on the kids coming and going from the fest: "That's the future of our country right there."
And just who is this next generation that's currently baffling their elders? Videographer Ronald L. Jones decided to find out. He spent some time talking to those outside the fest and put together this video of the people of Something Wicked (and their amazing outfits).
