It’s no secret that we’re living in a golden age of music festivals. But so much attention is lavished on the Coachellas and Pitchforks and Bonnaroos that it’s easy to forget that there’s dozens of other annual fests going on in pretty much every region of the continental U.S. throughout the warmer months. You

might buy a plane ticket for your ideal destination lineup or you might find a bill worth spending a day in the sun for within driving distance. But either way, it’s worth broadening your horizons to find out what festivals you might feel foolish about missing come next summer.
