Spring has sprung and the concert season is nigh upon us! SXSW kicked of the festivals and the summer concert series is just weeks away. Here is a list of the music fests that will draw a litany of artists and hordes of people. This list highlights the main( in my humbly superior opinion) music festivals that take place in the continental U.S. Most festivals are three days long and I’ve highlighted some of the featured (great) artists.
|Festival||Date||Partial Line Up|
|New Orleans Jazzwww.nojazzfest.com||Apr. 23-25||
|New Orleans Jazz Week 2www.nojazzfest.com||Apr. 29-May 2||
|Summer Campwww.summercampfestival.com||May 28-30||
|Lollapaloozawww.lollapalooza.com||Aug. 6-8||Not yet released but always a stellar lineup|
|Austin City Limitswww.aclfestival.com||Oct. 8-10||Not yet released but always a stellar lineup|
The cool thing about the festivals is that if one takes place geographically close to you, you might catch some really good shows on both sides of the festival dates.
If you have attended any of the above or one not listed, let me know what was great about it and who you saw.
As mentioned in previous blogs I am a ACL acolyte and would strongly recommend that if you have the time and disposable income, you need to check itout.
Great music awaits!
