Ann Arbor Affairs: Keep your love

Illustration by Megan Mulholland

BY HALEY GOLDBERG

My group and I quickly separated, my phone promptly died, and I found myself stranded in the middle of a mud field, trapped not only in muck but all my fears about music festivals. But in the past-tense words of Icona Pop: I loved it.
