2019 Music Festival Guide

New year = new lineups! My Christmas is in January when spring and summer festivals announce their lineups. Music festival season known to others as summer, is my absolute fave. I have been to over 12 different mid to large-scale music festivals over 26 times. That’s not including local music festivals, outdoor concerts and shows. You could say, I like music festivals and know a thing or two about them!

The below guide includes tips for the festivals that I’ve been to and aspirations for the ones I plan to attend this year. I’ve placed my logo next to my favorite festivals that I absolutely adore and look forward to each year. Each festival has the same details for easy comparison. No matter your region there is a music festival just a drive away from you. This is not an exhaustive list that would be wayyyyy too much for me to write. The good thing about festivals is, you can pick your flavor. What city, what size, what time of year, what kind of lineup, it’s basically build your own experience.

Which of the below festivals are you attending this year? Do you think I should add one to the list? Let me know in the comments section. DISCLAIMER: GA pass prices are as of 1/10/19 and may change/be sold out depending on when you view.
