Music Festivals take place all around the Country typically during the Spring and Summer months. Some really are extreme while others are quite laid back. Typically, these festivals take place over a weekend; which allows you to not only enjoy the musical acts and daytime activities but also a chance to explore the city and take part in some cultural activities as well.
If you’ve been thinking about a weekend getaway, here’s the perfect time to do it, especially if you enjoy music. My suggestion would be to do a little research. Go to the festival that’s affordable for you and also the one where there are more musical acts that you would enjoy. Don’t delay, some of these festivals are around the corner (Links below)!
Coachella– This festival takes place in California over two different weekends in April. April 12-14 and April 19-21. There are tons of options available to you so that you can really make the festival your own. There’s also a wide range of musical guest for this festival.
Something in the Water– If you’re looking for a festival near the beach, this festival is the one for you. This event will take place in Virginia Beach, VA, April 26-28. The oceanfront and convention center will serve as venues. It is said that there will be a pop-up church service and karaoke featuring trap music.
Roots Picnic– This one day event takes center stage in Philly on June 1st. Early bird tickets start at $69.50 which is very inexpensive compared to other festivals. However, keep in mind that this is a one day event while others may be for an entire weekend.
Essence– New Orleans is always the place to be and this is where this festival takes place. I personally attended this festival in 2014 during their 20th Anniversary. The icon Prince was the headliner. We attended concerts 3 nights in a row. We also enjoyed the free day parties, saw a ton of celebrities, and did some sightseeing on our own. This festival is from July 4-7.
These are just a few of the festivals that I’m aware of and the ones that are most trusted. If it looks too good to be true, like that FYRE festival. Run! Did you see those documentaries? OMG!
