Nothing says summer like attending a music festival with thousands of your closest friends. More than music, a sense of harmony and community emerges that you just don’t find anywhere else. Grab a glass of Rainstorm Pinot Rose and imagine rocking out at one of these famous festivals.
Sasquatch - George, WA is where it’s at May 27-30. Florence and the Machine, The Cure, Chet Faker, Purity – these are just a few of the more than 100 bands set for this festival’s lineup. Sasquatch sells out fast every year, and it’s no wonder: the location on the edge of a cliff overlooking a gorge provides an incredible scenic backdrop to killer tunes.
Governor’s Ball – Things are going to get loud June 3-5 in NYC. The Governor’s Ball will feature Kanye West, The Killers, The Strokes, Beck, Of Monsters and Men, Miguel, and tons of others. With an average attendance of around 50,000, there’s almost a quaint feeling to this show. Smaller crowds mean you might just catch a glimpse of a celeb dropping in.
Bonnaroo - One of the nation’s best-known music festivals, Bonnaroo has a lot to live up to – and it does, year after year. The Manchester, TN show will continue June 9-12 in 2016 with performances by Pearl Jam, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Death Cab for Cutie and lots more. Four days of outstanding musical acts and swarms of happy music-lovers in costume. And it’s for a good cause! Bonnaroo donates a portion of its proceeds to charities like Doctors Without Borders and Habitat for Humanity.
These are just a few of the music festivals you can catch this summer. If you haven’t been to one before, give it a try. It’s a great way to kick back and experience great music. Throw in some good food and drinks (a few bottles of Rainstorm pinot rose or pinot gris, perhaps?) and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere.
