Music festivals have become such crucial parts of American culture that the months from April to September are widely considered to be “Festival Season” amongst music connoisseurs. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which traditionally takes place towards the end of April, is considered by many to be the “kickoff” of festival season. Most consider the end to be Austin City Limits in early October.
In between Coachella and Austin City Limits, there are close to one hundred festivals nationwide for fans of all genres to choose from. The festivals range from Bumbershoot in Seattle, Washington to the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans, Louisiana. While some focus strictly on music, others focus on art and film in addition to music. Some adhere to one type of music, while others showcase genres ranging from jazz and funk to punk rock and electronic/dance music. Regardless of the festival, music is the focus, and fans from around the world travel to partake in the festivities.
