2016 Summer Music Festival Guide
With Coachella, Mountain Jam and Sasquatch! all behind us, and Bonnaroo mere days away, music festival season is clearly already in full swing.
No matter where you live, there’s a very good chance there’s a festival coming to a town near you with an impressive, stacked and occasionally reunion-heavy lineup in tow. Whether it’s a long-running institution like Lollapalooza (which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with an expanded four-day format) or a brand-new venture that’s ready to break ground like Panorama (which is brought to you by the makers of Coachella), there’s a festival happening in just about every corner of the country. And with a new festival seemingly cropping up every year, the season is no longer confined to summer. It stretches from March all the way into the first days of fall, and we’re here to help you navigate the overwhelming decision of choosing just which one — or, if you’re lucky, ones — to attend.
In the gallery above, we have compiled a handy guide to all of the major U.S. festivals taking place this year – from Firefly in Dover, Delaware to the Psycho Las Vegas Fest – to help you make your summer plans. Flip through the slides, and you’re sure to find your festival soulmate.
