What goes better with sunshine than music? This summer, get out and enjoy music the way it was intended: live. If you’re into sunshine, good times and live music, then check out one (or all) of these festivals:
1. Coachella April 13 – 15 and APril 20 – 22
Less than a month from today you can get in on the fun in Indio, California, at Coachella 2012. Headliners include the Black Keys, Radiohead, and Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg. However, with over 33 bands in the lineup, there’s something for almost everyone–from Feist and SBTRKT to AVICII and Neon Indian.
2. Bonnaroo June 7- 10
Even though it’s held just an hour outside of the country music capitol, Bonnaroo is anything but country. This year’s lineup includes everything from Alice Cooper to Ben Folds and even the Beach Boys. If you like some laughs with your music, Bonnaroo is the place to be—they’ll soon be announcing a full comedy lineup.
3. Lollapalooza August 3 – 5
Chicago’s biggest music festival is sure to have your ears buzzing. While this year’s lineup hasn’t been announced yet, headliners in the past have included Eminem, Lady Gaga and Coldplay.
4. Summer Camp May 25 – 27
Pretty Lights, Moe and G. Love and Special Sauce have all taken the stage at Summer Camp. This Chillicothe, Illinois, festival has more than 100 bands on 6 stages over 4 days.
5. Sasquatch May 25 – 28
True, you probably can’t go to both Summer Camp and Sasquatch, but that’s okay. This one takes place in George, Washington, at the Gorge amphitheater and will host acts like Childish Gambino, The Civil Wars, Tenacious D and Chiddy Bang.
