  • Governor's Ball - May 31-June 

    • Helping us round out the spring and dive into summer is New York's multi-genre fest, Governor's Ball at Randall's Island Park in NYC.

  • Bonnaroo - June 13-16

    • Spend the weekend on hundreds of acres of nature at Tennessee's annual classic Music and Arts Festival at Great Stage Park in Manchester, TN, and hear live performances from a lineup that always draws a crowd.

  • Firefly Festival - June 21-30

    • With a lineup spanning Top 100 Charts of nearly every genre, Firefly Festival promises a good time of glamping in The Woodlands of Dover, Delaware.


They may be a little ways away, still, but these fests are can’t-miss events each year and it’s never too early to start preparing for the festival experience of a lifetime.


Lollapalooza - August 1-4

  • Burning Man - August 25-September 2

    • Burning Man is unlike any other festival. Rather than watching artists perform, participants join together to co-create the temporary Black Rock City in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada and build a community of acceptance and art. It’s an experience and an experiment in radical self-expression and an all-time favorite of attendees.

  • Austin City Limits - October 4-6, 11-13

    • Last, but certainly not least in the festival season lineup comes Austin, Texas’s undeniable fest, Austin City Limits. Known for its genre-diverse lineup and delicious Austin cuisine, the two-weekend-long fest is the perfect end to round out festival season on a high note, and you won’t want to miss it.
