Somebody really crazy came up with the idea of having a music festival in the desert in the middle of June.
The temperatures in the desert in the middle of June are easily 100° or higher. My best friend got free tickets to the concert event and we decided to check out the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We got a tent from one of our friends and decided we would sleep outside like everyone else. The closest hotel was 45 minutes away from that concert venue, so tent camping was honestly the most ideal suggestion. During night time when the sun was down, it was extremely comfortable inside of the tent. It might have even been a little chilly. During the day, things were much different. It was extremely hot and there was no air conditioning anywhere at all. We were outside in the middle of the desert with no AC except for the one in our car. We didn’t want to run out of gas, so we didn’t use the AC. We dealt with the miserably hot temperatures and uncomfortable atmosphere all four days. By the end of day two, I didn’t recognize a problem with the heat much at all. I was already getting used to the hot daytime temperatures and they didn’t seem to bother me as much as they did on the first day that we arrived. On day three, I could have slept in the tent during the day. I never thought I would feel comfortable in the desert heat, but you really do get used to it quickly.
