Kenneth and a friend went to this year's Outside Lands and got a chance to meet Chromeo as part of Propeller's campaign with HeadCount. Hear what he had to say about the experience below.
Propeller: How did you find out about Propeller and what type of actions did you complete to earn points towards winning this experience?
Kenneth: I randomly found out about Propeller from a post I saw on Facebook. Turns out those random links are worth a click every now and then. Once I looked further into Propeller I found out that this is something that interested me very much. Some of the actions I completed that went into winning this experience ranged from simply signing a petition, donating to organizations such as Calling All Crows, and joining groups like the Sierra Club.
Propeller: What was the highlight of your time at Outside Lands?
Kenneth: My highlight of the trip was probably just the atmosphere of the festival itself. Golden Gate Park was a beautiful area, the weather was amazing, and the people there were very friendly.
Propeller: Did you meet Chromeo? How was this experience?
Kenneth: Meeting Chromeo was very cool. We were taken backstage to their private trailer where we met David and Patrick. It was a quick visit given that they were right about to go on but they still made sure to get a picture with us and even sign a poster.
Propeller: What was the best part of the trip?
Kenneth: Best part of the trip was obviously the music. We were able to see some amazing bands perform. My favorite was probably Rainbow Kitten Surprise. Their energy was insane and they absolutely tore the stage up. Some other favorites were Florence and The Machine, LP, and Bon Iver.
Propeller: Why is HeadCount important to you?
Kenneth: Quite honestly I didn't know much about HeadCount before this trip. After meeting with people from their organization though, such as Emily Gibbs, I believe what they're doing is really important when I comes to getting people to vote and take action for certain causes no matter what they are.
