Description

The What Podcast is a weekly show by two veterans of the entertainment media universe with a passion for live music and music festivals.

In fact, since launching in 2018, they found kindred spirits all over the world who also love the vibe found only at music festivals. Each week they share their own stories and opinions, but they also dig deeper and talk to the musicians and industry insiders who make the magic happen.
