A new study out of Yale University says attending music festivals can make you a better person.

It found that nearly two-thirds of people how attended festivals fest “radically changed” by the experience, with a greater understanding and willingness to help others – an effect that can last up to six months.

Researchers believe music festivals offer a similar sense of community to religious celebrations, pilgrimages, or other ceremonies.

Ever find yourself ‘radically changed’ after attending a concert or festival?
