1. Electric Daisy Carnival, Nevada
If you like electronic music, you should go to the largest electronic music festival in the United States. More than a million people go to it every year, so you can definitely meet a lot of people from all over the world. At the end of June, the festival is held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which is turned into an amusement park for adults just for the event. It is also an adult-only festival, so you won’t have to deal with small children screaming and you can listen to great electronic music from the best artists in the world as much as you want.
2. The city of Bumbershoot, Washington
If Electric Daisy was more for adults, then this year’s Bumbershoot festival is definitely for kids. In Seattle, there is a festival that lasts three days, and everyone who likes festivals is sure to find something to do. One of the biggest modern festivals in the United States features not only the best musicians but also comedians, theatre, and literature. And, of course, this festival is also for kids, so if you have one or two, bring them along. There are lots of things for kids to do here.
3. Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival
This festival is still pretty new (it began in 2012), but it has a lot of potential to become one of the best on the East Coast. No wonder, since the Firefly Music Festival got professional musicians like the Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney, Snoop Dogg, The Killers, and more to play on its seven stages, each of which was set up for a different kind of music. Festival welcomes people of all ages, so it can be great for families who want to have a great summer and for older people who like modern music.
4. In California, Coachella
Coachella is well-known all over the world, so it’s not strange that we’re talking about it today. Even though festival happens in the spring, we can’t forget to talk about it because it is so crazy and good! Music stars like AC/DC, LCD Soundsystem, and many others play at the two-weekend event, which is also usually attended by a lot of show business stars. So, there’s a good chance you could meet someone famous here. Also, it’s interesting to know that the art installations at that festival were borrowed from the Burning Man Festival, so it also looks pretty magical inside. Don’t forget that this festival starts at the end of April and tickets are almost sold out. So, you should deal with it as soon as you can.
5. Georgia, TomorrowWorld
TomorrowLand is a fun and well-known festival that takes place in Europe. Its sister festival, TomorrowWorld, which takes place in Georgia, is just as great. Also, the festival is quickly becoming America’s biggest event for people over 21. This isn’t just because it has more than 250 DJs over the course of three days, but also because millions of people go to it. This festival is definitely worth going to if you like electronic music and are looking for a magical experience. The scene design, where it takes place, and the people who go make it so. You can go to the Chattahoochee Hills.
6. California’s Outside Lands
This festival usually happens at the end of summer, in August, so you will have to wait a while to go. But going to this festival to end the summer will be the best way to do it, trust us! First of all, since it started in 2008, the Outside Lands festival has become more and more popular, and there are a few reasons why. First of all, this festival is great not only because it has great music and the best artists, but also because it has so many different kinds of food. Festival organisers were able to get Stevie Wonder and Radiohead to perform, and there are also more than 80 food vendors. So not only does Outside Land have the best music, but it also has the best food. Where else can you watch Radiohead play live while eating lobster?
7. What is the Oregon Festival
This summer, you might also want to go to one of the newest and fleshiest festivals in the United States. Interactive music and art festival takes place in some of the most beautiful places in Oregon, like open fields and wooded areas. This is a great place to connect with nature and listen to great music at the same time. Camping will help you connect with nature even more, so don’t forget to bring the most important things with you. When you arrive at this festival, you’ll get a trash bag, so the festival really tries to get people to be green and “leave no trace” when they camp. Aside from all of that, the Festival also has great music and other activities that are perfect for spiritual souls, like yoga classes, workshops, and even a comedy stage where you can watch shows while listening to the best electronic music.
8. Lollapalooza, Illinois
Illinois also has a lot of great things to offer. A two-day festival with a funny name gives n artists in South America and many up-and-coming groups a chance to perform. Lollapalooza has been around for a long time, and it used to be compared to another famous music festival called Woodstock. All of this happened because both of these festivals had a counterculture vibe and crazy things to do, like shaving your head, smashing a TV (or a guitar), and getting a tattoo you might regret later. But all of that is what makes these festivals so great and hard to forget. But the wild days of Lollapalooza are over, and now the festival is good for families and kids of all ages. If your kids love rock and metal as much as you do, don’t be afraid to bring them with you, because here everyone can see the best performances from bands like Metallica, Imagine Dragons, and Pearl Jam.
9. Summerfest, Wisconsin
Summerfest is another great music festival that you should go to at some point. This is not only the festival that has been going on the longest, but it is also very affordable. A day pass costs only $19, so everyone can go. This festival is also one of the biggest in the United States. With more than 11 stages, 800 performances by the best musicians in the world, and around a million attendees, Summerfest is the best way to enjoy a music festival. Even more amazing is how many different kinds of music and artists are there. Here, you can listen to Lady Gaga and King of Leon on the same day. So, no matter what kind of music your friends like, grab them all and head to the best music festival on the whole continent, which is in Wisconsin.
10. Michigan’s Electric Forest
And for the last summer music festival, but not the least, let’s take a moment to enjoy the Electric Forest festival in Michigan. This strange electronic music festival takes place in a real forest and really makes you feel like you’ve gone to another world. This four-day music fantasy land will blow your mind with the best DJs, electronic acts, and jam bands in the world.
