For the past forty Labor Day weekends, Bumbershoot has been rocking Seattle with a mix of music, film, comedy, spoken word, dance, and theater performances. Bob Dylan, Hole, and Weezer all played last year so look forward to another giant-sized lineup.
One of the musical hotspots of the South plays host to up and coming bands. This year, the festival moves from summer to October. They are looking for submissions right now so there’s still time to be selected.
A3C Hip Hop Festival
Georgia is also home to the largest hip-hop festival in the Southeast. Now in it’s 7th year, A3C includes 9th Wonder, B.o.B, DJ Premier, Jean Grae, Rhymefest, Souls of Mischief, Wale, and Yelawolf as festival alumni.
Blackwater Music Festival
Jam out in the swamps of South Florida! Last year’s lineup included Slightly Stoopid, STS9, G. Love, Disco Biscuits, and Galactic along with hiking, camping, canoeing, and swimming.
