The Best Music of Fall 2012: Festivals and Concerts to Attend

Here at Etón Corp, we know good music. In fact, many members of our team are often seen jamming to their Android through the Rukus Solar, the Bluetooth sound system, throughout the office. Others can be found tapping their toes to their Soulra XL, a solar speaker dock with eight speaker drivers. Hey, get back to work!

Because our team knows you dig good music too, we’ve compiled some of the best music festivals coming up this fall. Will you be attending any of these seasonal concerts?

Austin City Limits. Touted as the “Coachella of the South”, Austin City Limits (October 12 – 14) has become quite a music phenomenon. Over the past few years, ACL attracted roughly 150,000 fans and we predict that 2012 will be no exception. This year’s lineup includes an eclectic mix, ranging from classics like Neil Young, to popular newcomers such as Gotye and Esperanza Spalding. Add a little dubstep with Avicci, shake, and be ready to get served quite the musical concoction.

CMJ Music Marathon. Expect hundreds of artists in this year’s CMJ lineup and be ready to explore music off the beaten path. The event takes place October 16-20 in New York City and will feature music creation sessions, College Day panels, Fireside Chats and parties throughout the week.

Treasure Island Music Festival. Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment (APE) are back again to produce the Treasure Island Music Festival – and we couldn’t be happier. The first day of the festival (October 13) includes an electronica and hop-hop focus, while the second day (October 14) is more geared towards your inner rocker. No matter your musical preference, the show is bound to be a hit on the San Francisco Bay.

VooDoo Music + Art Experience. Visit City Park, New Orleans for the infamous Voodoo Music and Art Experience. The Voodoo website allow you to customize your personal lineup throughout the festival’s entire weekend (October 26, 27 and 28) to include the old school rhythms of Thomas Dolby
