Fans from the 2023 Festival all reported that the WWWY Festival of 2023 did not disappoint. A man who went to the festival on October 21, 2023, reported “Whether I’ll ever come back, I can’t say. Maybe I’m not young enough for this kind of hot days and crowds anymore, but I’ll always embrace this music that made me.” Many fans have stated this issue as the reason they are not attending the festival. Due to how hot and dry Vegas is and how the audience is much older. Compared to a younger audience who can deal with the hot climate and the very long waits and walking in the hot summer sun. Regardless of these issues, fans all over the world are excited to revisit their youth.
