Hype-mag.com is a webzine dedicated to festivals and the bands that play them, with an emphasis on photography and video. We strive to change the way music is covered and listened to with each article we put out. Hype-mag.com is really just one man, Phil Sunkel. I have always had a passion for music and imagery. My life's path really became clear when Hype-mag co-founder, Michael Parker, took me to Bear Creek '09. Being my first real festival, it changed my life and opened my eyes to an entire new world of quality music. College, friends and many festivals drove me to create this website to showcase the wide variety of artists, bands, musicians, DJs, poets and people who surround the beautiful world of festivals.
