A new study looked to social media, Instagram specifically, to find out which was the preferred drug at each American music festival.

Here’s where the real data becomes interesting. Detox next took all the posts in the above chart — those mentioning drugs or alcohol from each festival — and figured out how often specific substances were being talked about. At Bonnaroo, for example, 47.5% of mentions were related to alcohol, 27.3% were about marijuana, 13.3% were just about “generic drug terms,” and 9% were about LSD. LSD was most popular at Electric Forest, where 18.1% of posts were about the psychedelic. Attendees of the Michigan fest were also fond of weed (45.3%) and alcohol (23%).
Speaking of psychotropics, it’s interesting to see that Burning Man burners prefer LSD and mushrooms at precisely equal levels: 15.1%. Camp Bisco fans get down far more often on ‘shrooms (16.8%) and are pretty fond of some grass too (51.5%).
Below are some interesting graphs.
Obviously, music festivals do not encourage drug use, so make sure you stay safe. And if you have a problem with drugs and alcohol, get help.
