About Us


Welcome to the Music Festival Junkies. We’re a small crew of dedicated festival fans rambling the country and writing about the experience. In our spare time, we’re building the largest database of music festivals on the Internet.

Our Story

In 2009, a duo of festival fans started this site to feed our stoke on live music. Since then, we’ve watched Music Festival Junkies grow into a monster of festivals news, reviews, and photos. Our handy one-pager guides to festivals now number well over 500.

The Mission

We started this site in order to have a central hub of coverage for music festivals. Most official websites provide information overload when all you really need are a few key details. Our goal at MFJ is to quickly provide you with the when, where, who, and how much of your favorite summer shows. Browse our easily navigable festival guides for info on ticket prices, current lineups, and venue information.
