And here we are again with the latest installment of awesome lineups! This morning Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival released it’s lineup for this years festival which will take place June 8-11 in Manchester, Tennessee. If any of the recently announced festival lineups are any indication of how the year will go, I’m not mad about it. Red Hot CHili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, U2, and the Weeknd are set to headline.
I’m personally most excited about Major Lazer after seeing them last year. Also set to play the fest are Glass Animals♥, Flume (remember what I said about him taking over the festival scene this year?), The XX, Lorde, Louis the Child, Marshmello, Big Gigantic, Tegan & Sara, Milky Chance, Bad Suns, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, COIN, Leon, Cold War Kids, Crystal Castles, Gallant, Portugal The Man, and more!
Every year when music festival season comes around I start to feel the “too many festivals, not enough resources” blues. I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about. Even though I know I can’t go to all these festivals, there is a part of me (the part that’s seriously in denial) that prefers to play pretend in the form of making my personalized “bands to see” list. If you’ve been to a festival, you’ve made this list, and if you haven’t…well you’re just not very organized. I know that when I go to Lollapalooza every year my favorite thing to do while I wait for the festival to get here is to pick and choose which bands I want to see since there a few hundred to choose from and almost all of them are great!
Once again it’s THAT time of year where Lollapalooza is right around the corner and as per usual I am starting to make my many lists I tend to make to get ready (what to pack, what to buy, band schedule, etc.). August 2010 was my first Lolla trip and since then I am making it a tradition to go every year, this year will be my third! Each time I attend a music festival, I learn more and more about how to be be better prepared. I thought I would get together all of the information I’ve picked up along the way and compile a list for you, if you want it, or even just for myself to look back on each year. Whether you are headed to Lolla like me, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Sasquatch or any other music festival…this list will most likely apply to you. I hope it helps you get ready for some of the greatest musical events you’ll ever experience! Without further ado (not “adieu”, I looked it up) here is list..
