Not everyone can score passes to Coachella or Bonnaroo. The Glastonbury Music Festival is a reach, and tickets to Lollapalooza sold out before you had the chance to snag some. None of these are reasons to not attend an awesome music festival this summer. Your favorite artists fill their schedules with performances at the less popular festivals as well. You can camp out in the woods of the Northwest or hop from stage to stage at one of the many festivals going down on Randall's Island this summer and not miss a single minute of the summer music festival experience.
Whether you're skipping out on the megafests this year to stay closer to home or to save yourself the hassle of buying tickets at inflated prices, this list of 17 Under the Radar Music Festivals Happening This Summer gives you some awesome alternatives. Plan accordingly.
