Winter is over and Spring is here. Soon it will be Summer, which means there are a bunch of hot music festivals that will be taking place from now until then. Maybe you won’t be able to attend them all, but you should certainly try your best to go to as many as possible. Here are just a few suggestions for you. These are 5 pretty hot festivals going down this year.
1.) Rolling Loud
Any real hip-hop head is going to love the Rolling Loud Festival this year. You’ve got Kendrick Lamar, Future, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Mac Miller, Kevin Gates, Run the Jewels, Post Malone, Migos, Lil Yachty, Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Flatbush Zombies and more performing. It’s going down in Miami, Florida between May 5th and 7th.
Frank Ocean, Chance The Rapper, Twenty One Pilots, The Head & The Heart, The Shins, MGMT, Phantogram, Mac Miller, Bonobo, Rüfüs Du Sol, Kaytranada, Big Gigantic, Bleachers, Kiiara, Bomba Estereo, Bob Moses, Aesop Rock, Mount Kimbie, Thee Oh Sees, Foxygen and more. You wouldn’t want to miss this year’s Sasquatch! Music Festival in Quincy, Washington on the weekend of May 26th.
Everything in Atlanta is awesome. Especially the Shaky Beats Music Festival this year. You’ve got artists like Major Lazer, ZHU, A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez, Chromeo, Nas as well as Yellow Claw lined up to perform, between May 5th and 7th.
4.) Governors Ball
On June 2nd, come to New York City to see Chance the Rapper, Phoenix, Childish Gambino, Lorde, Flume, Wu-Tang Clan, Wiz Khalifa, Beach House, Air, Rae Sremmurd, Tove Lo, BANKS, Charli XCX, A$AP Ferg, Kehlani, Skepta and more perform at Governors Ball.
This would’ve been the biggest event of the year by far, had Beyonce stayed on the lineup. But instead, you’re getting Kendrick Lamar, Radiohead and Lady Gaga headlining the Coachella festival this year in California. This is definitely one of the best music festivals to attend.
