Swa-Rai Travels Wishlist: 6 Events, I Want to Attend

You guys already know that I have been fortunate to travel from state to state covering some of the best and sometimes most exclusive events. One thing, I’ve been working on doing is creating lists of places and things I want to do in my life. I wanted to attend New York Fashion Week, I did! I wanted to attend CES, did that as well but now I’m ready to expand my list! I’ve compiled a list of several events that I feel would be the coolest events to cover, who knows maybe some of these event are on your list as well!

1. Essence Fest- Can you believe, I’ve never been to the Essence Fest? Held in New Orleans, this music festival is widely attended and looks like a ball of fun. Besides all the great musical artists, I traveled to New Orleans for the first time last year and instantly fell in love with that place!

2013 Essence Festival

2 Coachella- Yes, another music festival! I missed it this year but it’s definitely an event that I want to attend in the future. Held in California this stylish fest is always a hit among festival goers.

2013 Coachella3. As much as I love BET, I really need to travel to LA to attend the awards show one of these years. All my favorite celebrities in one place at one time… I can only imagine!

16by9-BETX-image-beyonce-promote4. Kentucky Derby- I know what you are probably thinking, but why? I’ve always thought the Kentucky Derby was one of the coolest events ever! The thought of getting dressed up and putting on your big hat to watch the horserace intrigues me! This really is an event that I want to attend. I’ve been to Kentucky before and I had a great time, but I would love to go back for the Derby.


5. Paris Fashion Week- I’ve attended and covered New York Fashion Week but my dream is to attend Paris Fashion Week. I’ve never been to Paris before so this would be a double treat!


6. Lollapalooza-Now, I know what you are thinking this is in your hometown right? Why yes it is, but I’ve never attended and the time when I could, I was out of town. Lollapalooza is another fest that is fill with some of musics bests and it sells out months in advance.


So there you have it, my event wishlist! This list is no where near finished but I didn’t want to overload you all at one time so stay tuned for more! Hopefully, I can fulfill each and every one on my list! What are some of the events on your wishlist?
