Yo!! It's Saturday night and I'm in my hotel in San Antonio still vibrating from day one of San Antonio's very first Mala Luna Music Festival! When you think of music festivals, your mind goes to the heavy weights: Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Coachella and the like. Come 2017, Mala Luna will be among those greats--for a first year event it was amazing.
Through the amazing people at InStyle Magazine, I was able to have the top tier VIP Package that Mala Luna offered. The Fly Me To The Moon VIP came with a private bar and stage right viewing deck which was SURREAL to experience! There were mosh pits, cake throwing (courtesy of one Steve Aoki) pineapple crushing (chile, IDK but it was hilarious) and plenty of champagne being hosed over the raucous crowd!
The venue was San Antonio's famed Lone Star Brewery-it was the perfect choice: a huge expanse with plenty of cover from the Texas sun. The official sponsor of Mala Luna was Tito's Handmade Vodka which made a super sweet signature drink called The Blue Heeler made of Blueberry Basil syrup, peach puree, sparkling water and a healthy amount of Tito's. I may have had one... (or two!)
